Sponsored by John Bray and Partners: If the sight of the sea cheers you up and makes you feel good, it’s not that surprising. There’s a growing body of evidence to suggest a clear correlation between close proximity to the sea and better psychological health.

It’s hard to find a location that epitomises coastal living more than the Camel Estuary on the north Cornwall coast. Well known for its abundance of outdoor leisure facilities, including surfing, sailing, canoeing, water skiing, windsurfing and golf plus wonderful scenic walking, the area also boasts a wealth of fine sandy beaches all within 5 miles, offering safe bathing, excellent restaurants and good shopping facilities.

With almost 50 years’ experience, the team at John Bray & Partners Estate Agents have a collection of unique properties for sale in this waterside resort, including prime waterfront real estate, one-of-a-kind Cornish cottages and contemporary homes that deliver a fresh take on the authentic beach house vibe. It is no surprise then, that Rock, Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Port Isaac on the North Cornwall coast continues to attract buyers from all over the world.

Josephine Ashby from John Bray & Partners Estate Agents explains: “The market is far from quiet and we have acquired some exciting instructions that only come around once in a lifetime, all sharing the common interest of quality, be it an incredible location or state-of-the-art design.”
