Loved watching the sun set over Padstow in the evening from the comfort of the sofa. Excellent pub with local beer just a short walk away. Can't wait to go back next year.

It is perfect for holidays with the whole family. The house is spacious and very cozy, with all the equipment and comfort you might need. The kids especially loved the outdoor shower and the garden, I loved the dish washer and tumble dryer ;-) The location is wonderful as well: at the end of a quiet lane, just a short walk from the beach and the local shops. The manager Kamila was very friendly and helpful. So all in all it was a real pleasure to stay there and we would very much like to come back - even though the journey from Germany has been such a long one. Northern Lights and Polzeath are worth it!
