“Stunning views, wonderful property, the perfect base to explore Padstow”
Reviewed 20 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Just a short walk from the centre of gorgeous Padstow, Sandbanks is just the perfect base for a stay in this area of Cornwall. The view of the estuary from the main living room through the french doors and out over the water is so beautiful, a wonderful place to sit and watch the sun go down in the evening with a glass of wine. The property is really well equipped, spacious kitchen and living area, and large airy rooms with comfortable beds. With two parking spaces, this is a great place to stay with friends or family, far enough from the town centre to make the most of the peace and quiet, but still easy walking distance from the shops, pubs and restaurants, all with that gorgeous sea view. It has a pretty garden, laid mainly to lawn, but with a patio and BBQ outside so you can make the most of the sunshine. It's a little gem.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The first thing that hits you is the beautiful views over the estuary which changes during the course of day. Quite happy sitting on the terrace watching the ever changing scenery. Very clean spacious apartment with a well equipped kitchen also due to the good weather we were able to BBQ in the evening We were a party of 6 adults and found the property to be spacious enough without the feeling of being on top of one another. Location was brilliant easy to get to other areas of interest. We found Eric to be very friendly and helpful. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cornwall and would certainly book this accommodation again.

“Amazing holiday experience”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a very spacious apartment with spectacular views of the estuary. We were a party of 7 including 3 young children who enjoyed the back garden, and running round the property! There is a huge kitchen/dining room/lounge which means that the whole family can stay together. Facilities include a dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board and play equipment. All the bedrooms are large, comfortable and tastefully furnished. The only disadvantage I experienced was that the walk down to the river was much steeper than expected, although there was a gentler route I could have taken. So if you want to do any walking you need to be reasonably fit.

Thank you for your kind remarks, so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the house was to your liking. Like you say there is an easier way to walk down to the town rather than tackling the steep hill. It's fine going down & take the easy way back.

“Perfect location, very well kept”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The first thing you notice about Sandbanks is the view. As you walk into the lounge, some what travel weary, you are confronted by a truly stunning vista looking out over the estuary. It's breath-taking - you will want to spend the first 2 days just looking at it!

But the loveliness doesn't stop there. This is a very generously proportioned property - we were 4 adults and 3 children and had more then enough space. There is a lovely little garden. The kitchen is well equipped and nicely furnished.

The location is perfect - walking distance to Tesco, Padstow and the Camel Trail. From Padstow you can hire bikes, fish, take the ferry over to Rock. The apartment is also a short drive from many different attractions.

We had a wonderful holiday - book up early, avoid disappointment!

“Fantastic property, would definitely use it again and have already recommended it”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a superb property, it delivers everything as stated on the website and even more. The property is extremely spacious and very well equipped, it has super views over the estuary which changed constantly. We were a three generation family aged from ten months to sixty plus and the property suited us all. It is within easy walking distance of Padstow and only minutes away from the Camel Trail, which is an eleven mile long cycle/walking path. There is lots to do in the surrounding area and several great beaches. Overall a fantastic experience
