For something a bit more luxurious than hiring a holiday home, but keeping within the British Isles, Beach Retreats offer a contemporary cool beachside home in North Cornwall, but with the added benefit of your own PA.

They can do pretty much anything, from making sure the fridge is stocked with your favourite wine to organising a table at Rick’s or Jamie’s. Professional chefs can be arranged or how about a fully organised water sports day at the nearby Extreme Academy.

The location is perfect with a variety of activities to rival anywhere in Europe. The nearby Cowshed Spa at St Moritz is fantastic for a bit of R&R. All you need to bring is a beach towel.
