Fancy enjoying all that Padstow has to offer but without the hassle of parking in town, or the noise of the late-night revellers? Then Sandals is the place for you. A lovely family home tucked away in a quiet road, yet just a few minutes on foot down to the harbour. This warm hug of a house has everything you need for a proper Cornish holiday, whatever the weather.
Situated near the mouth of the Camel Estuary, Padstow offers a huge range of activities to tempt the adventurers in your party, including coasteering and paddle boarding, cycling along the renowned Camel Trail cycle path or heading out on a speedboat with Padstow Sea Life Safari. Surf lessons are available on most local beaches or hop on the ferry over to Rock to explore the other side of the estuary. The Southwest Coast Path will take you towards Harlyn Bay and Trevose Head, walk as far as you can then check out the bus routes for a speedier trip back!!
Padstow is home to a large selection of eateries, including Rick Steins flagship, the Seafood Restaurant as well as Paul Ainsworth’s highly regarded No 6 and the always buzzing Prawn on The Lawn. If fine dining isn’t your thing, you can be assured that you are never more than a few metres away from a wide choice of pasty or fish and chip options to keep the whole family fed and happy. Look out for seasonal pop-ups from some well-regarded chefs, they have a habit of appearing where you least expect them!
Offering the kind of sensible layout that just makes a family holiday work, Sandals has space galore for the whole crew. A welcoming hallway stretches towards the rear of the house, with a convenient WC and utility room, a must after a day at the beach! Glass doors lead you through to a spacious living area decorated in a relaxing, muted palette that creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. This lovely room opens on to the dining area, with plenty of room for lively family board games or animated mealtimes. French doors flood the room with light and lead on to a lovely outside space. A wonderfully bright family kitchen sits next to the dining room, with ample room for creating those holiday feasts.
Head upstairs, and a central landing leads off to four pretty bedrooms, each with tasteful coastal touches. To the front of the house sit a roomy king bedroom with ensuite shower room and lovely bright twin room with a cosy window seat, and to the rear is a superb master bedroom featuring a king-sized bed and ample storage, as well as stunning ensuite with double sinks. A cute single room with a funky daybed and a fresh nautical feel sits next to the family bathroom, which completes this well-laid out upper floor.
Accessed via either the large French doors from the living room or the kitchen door, Sandals enjoys a large, enclosed rear courtyard, perfect for those evening BBQ’s! Ideal for dogs or roaming children, this is a lovely space to stretch out into when the weather allows.
There is parking for two cars on the private driveway at the front of the property.

Situated on the west bank of the Camel Estuary, the picturesque harbour town of Padstow is a stunning holiday destination with an energetic vibe, a huge range of superb restaurants and bars, a variety of boutique shops and galleries, and all of this surrounded by gorgeous scenery.
For those days wandering around the town or sitting by the harbour in the sunshine, the tides of the river and the stream of boats sailing in and out of the working fishing port provide an ever changing and simply beautiful scenery to absorb. Stroll further along from the harbour and you reach the gorgeous sandy beaches along the estuary, a beautiful spot to relax and let your cares fly away.
The town has become a famous foodie destination, with celebrity chefs Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth taking centre stage, including Rick’s flagship Seafood Restaurant and Paul’s Michelin starred No.6 amongst the empire!

During your visit, make the most of the water and take a boat trip out on the estuary, you can choose from a scenic trip on an old lifeboat, a water safari or a high speed trip around the bay! There is also a ferry which runs daily across the water to Rock with even more food options like Paul Ainsworth’s gastro pub The Mariners.
