Make a holiday rental cottage or holiday accommodation in Constantine Bay, Cornwall your home away from home

Constantine Bay is a small village close to Padstow in North Cornwall. It has a sandy beach with large sand dunes as a backdrop. The bay and beach are popular with surfers and it is a dog friendly area. The nearest town is St Merryn, which touts a sign, " Seven Bays for Seven Days " referring to Trevone, Harlyn, Constantine, Booby, Mother Iveys, Treyarnon and Porthcothan bays.

Places to holiday in Constantine Bay

Constantine Bay draws thousands of surfers and holidaymakers each year. Consequently there is a good choice of accommodation, such as hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast (b&b), caravan and camping sites and other self catering accommodation. In the past most tourists arrived by coach or train and a hotel or guest house was well suited to their needs, as they generally spent the day on the beach and returned for evening meal.

Nowadays the majority of tourists travel by car or hire one from the airport and want more from their holiday than just to sit on the beach. A self-catering holiday cottage in Constantine Bay leaves you free to set your own timetable, to go where you want and return when you want. Cottages are close to the coastal paths for walking, picnicking, horse riding, cycling and convenient for all attractions in Cornwall.

Seaside cottages are a favourite with golfers and the Trevose Golf and Country Club has a championship 18-hole course and two short courses. The neighbouring Treglos hotel has a wonderful Elemis spa and is open to non-residents. Other golf clubs and driving ranges in the area include Ivyleaf at Stratton near Bude, St Kew Golf Club, Lanhydrock near Bodmin and Trethorne in Launceston.

Things to do in Constantine Bay

Daymer Bay and Rock along the Camel Estuary is excellent for windsurfing, wakeboarding, sailing and water skiing. The Camel Trail cycle path runs along the estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge (bike hire is available in both towns) and the coastal footpath follows the coastline around the whole of Cornwall. Riding stables include Hallagenna Moorland in St Breward, Lakefield Equestrian Centre in Camelford, Elm Park in Boyton, Launceston, Gooseham Barton near Bude and Tresallyn stables near Padstow.

If you want to be more adventurous then visit the Parachute Centre at St. Merryn airfield, Shoreline school of rock climbing or the outdoor adventure centre at Widemouth Bay. Your holiday cottage puts you close to pubs, restaurant, cafes and beach parties. If you enjoy the music scene, then you will find that most local pubs, such as the Cornish Arms have a band playing at least once a week. Entertainment is also available at the Eden Project near St Austell, Hall For Cornwall and or you can drive to Newquay, which is considered Cornwall's premier nightspot.

Sea fishing and boat trips are available at Padstow, Boscastle, Port Isaac and coarse fishing from Ferndale in Delabole, East Rose Farm at St Breward, Roadford Lake near Launceston, Siblyback Lake near Liskeard and the Upper Tamar Lake near Bude. Cornwall has many sub tropical and castle gardens open to the public and it is rare a visitor leaves Cornwall without having been to the Biomes at the Eden Project.

We were easily able to walk to the beach and back but were very grateful for the woodburning stove on our return! Also loved being able to pop to Padstow for shopping and dinner but glad to be staying in a more quiet location. Comfy beds, lovely linen and lots of home comforts mean we will definitely be returning in the summer, hopefully for some Cornish sun! Thank you Sarah, we had a wonderful week.

It's in such a lovely location and only a 15/20 min walk into Padstow which has everything you could possibly need from really good restaurants, pubs/shops as well as a couple of nearby beaches so your car doesn't really need to move if you don't want to drive anywhere. There's also a Tesco just up the road from the cottages so very convenient for any bits and pieces you might need. Turning to the cottage itself; it's so comfy and well equipped. Don't think there was anything I'd improve really and would definitely book again. In fact, we already have for this coming New Year's Eve!

Loved Aga cooking. Well equipped stunning stone barn conversion. Amazing walks direct from barn or 5 mins in car to Padstow. My boys loved play barn. Would love to come back
