Otters Holt, Near Constantine Bay

A peaceful, dog friendly bungalow with enclosed garden and parking just a short walk from the popular village of St Merryn, or equally the beautiful Constantine Bay with it’s golden sandy beach and the Championship Trevose Golf Course.



“Really lovely spacious bungalow in a really good location. Perfect for the dogs too, has an enclosed garden and plenty of walking from the house.”




The beauty of Otters Holt is that you would never know it was there. Tucked away in the hamlet of Towan, this tranquil home offers the perfect place for you to get away from it all, while still being in easy walking distance from the amenities of St Merryn Village and the golden sands of Constantine Bay. Hop on one of the many foot paths and you can stroll through the fields towards Trevose Head and take your pick of the beautiful bays that surround it. Otters Holt is modern and spacious, with an enclosed back garden with decking and lawn areas, perfect to let the dogs (or the kids!) run wild.





Otters Holt is the perfect base from which to explore the areas famed “Seven Bays for Seven Days” These beautiful beaches are all linked by the Southwest Coast Path and all offer something different. Try a dip in the Treyarnon tidal pool, go rock pooling at Boobies at low tide or head to Harlyn Bay for surf lessons on the gentle breakers. If that all sounds a bit too energetic, just curl up in a sand dune and watch the Atlantic surf roll in.


St Merryn village is a mile away, with plenty of shops and bars including Rick Steins pub, The Cornish Arms. The village is also home to a well-stocked shop, bakery, and surf shop, so all bases are covered! The much-loved hotel group The Pig have opened their newest hotel and restaurant at Harlyn House, book ahead for the hotel restaurant or wander up to The Lobster Shed for fab seafood and cold ciders in the summer months. With Padstow five miles away, your options for eat in or take away food are endless!
