Surfing: Constantine Bay has its own surf school on the beach run by the son of the owner of the local surf shop. In addition to this are the Harlyn Surf school and other visiting surf schools. A great way to learn to surf because tuition can be tailored to suit individual requirements.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Caroline and Keith for a great holiday. You were able to answer all our questions about the property and area before we booked in a friendly and knowledgeable manner.

When we arrived at the property we found the location was perfect for us – so close to the beach and yet a short drive away from so many different activities. Our only problem was choosing what to do first! We really enjoyed Prideaux Place and the children kept choosing the beach.

The apartment was clean, smart and comfortable. The road outside is deserted of traffic once everyone has gone home for tea so we slept really well. We especially appreciated the use of the telephone as the mobile signal is distinctly “iffy” in Cornwall.

We loved it so much we are going back next year!

Truly only a "stone's throw" from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice little apartment; everything as described in the listing. Well-equipped kitchen; roomy bathroom. The apartment building is located just a 2-minute-walk from the totally beautiful beach -- perfect! Our teenage kids took surf lessons in Constantine Bay and in Harlyn Bay (with Windy from Waves Surf School). We liked walking along the South West Coast Path -- lots of gorgeous views on coast and sea. If you like to be where it is less crowdy, then Constantine Bay is wonderful (the only "minus": the very narrow roads everywhere, but that's typical for Cornwall, not esp. for Constantine Bay). On the whole, definitely recommendable.

The location of this flat is brilliant - it's about 3 minutes walk to Constantine beach, and then you have the choice of two more bay's from there - Treyarnnon to your left or Booby's to your right, both only another 5 minutes away. There is a small village shop and surf store at the top of the road and the Treglos Hotel about 5 minute's walk away has a really good restaurant. The nearest pub is a 25 minute walk away along the road, though not too bad given the low level of traffic. Padstow is 15 minutes by car.

The accommodation is simple, but it suited myself and my girlfriend really well. There were all the conveniences expected (bar a freezer compartment in the fridge), but I think a family with any more than one child would struggle with the space.

The walls are a little thin, and we could hear people walking around above, but this wasn't too bad and didn't spoil our enjoyment.

Overall, if you want to get away to somewhere with a quiet location and proximity to beaches is important, you won't go too far wrong.

Summer time misery!

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at the accommodation during August 2008. The only positive thing would be the location, being very close to the beach, which is outstanding. Unfortunately, it rained during the entire week, putting a slight dampener on everything!

The accommodation was clean, but not 3* accommodation, we battled with continual condensation (we had to wipe the windows down every morning) we thought the bedding and furniture were bought on the cheap and the double bed was the size of a postage stamp, we didn't get a full night's sleep once. Added to this was the constant noise from above us, as both the floors and walls are paper thin.

Be warned, you are paying alot for the location here, certainly not the home comforts!

If all day surfing and sleepless nights are your thing, then this one's for you!

Owner's Response: We have had over 35 families stay in the 4 years that we have owned Stone's Throw, some who reture year after year. This is the first poor review we have had and we should like to respond to the comments which we feel are unjustified. The property has been inspected by Quality in Tourism (QiT) - the authority which awards stars for the Tourist Board - and was graded as 3 star in its last inspection. The furniture was graded "good" in that QiT report; the double bed is a standard double size. As part of our improvement programme the double bed mattress was replaced (in Oct 07) by a quality John Lewis product. The bed had been slept on for a total of 6 weeks before the reviewer arrived at the property.Linen was also graded "good" in the QiT report. Pictures of the rooms are on this website so that guests can see exactly how the rooms are furnished before they book. Walls are solid brick. In the property is an information folder for guests. It details how to remove the condensation that can occur in very wet weather. Using the dehumidifier, kept in the bathroom, correctly at night time only, keeps any condensation within the normal range. There is also underfloor heating and oil filled radiators for use in bad weather. There is a separate folder detailing the many varied activites in the area. Within 10 mins walk or drive are walking, golf, tennis, swimming, horse riding, Prideaux Place and Padstow. Within an hours drive are Llanhydrock House, The Tate and Eden Project. A selection of recent fiction is also on the bookshelf. The property has a landline telephone, with honesty box, and our telephone number, as well as that of our local agent, is displayed on the wall in the hallway. The reviewer did not contact us during his stay to alert us to other noisy tenants, so we could not help him. We are in touch with all property owners and would have been pleased to assist. No other guests have mentioned this difficulty to us. In addition to ensuring we meet our guests needs, we have undertaken Fire Risk and Access Assessments. Electrical appliances are PAT tested each year. We hope that the reviewers comments do not deter you from booking with us. We cannot influence the weather but, happily, most guests seem to have enjoyed some good weather during their holidays.

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Car: necessary

Ideally placed between Padstow and Newquay, the apartment is located in Constantine Bay, a quiet, small village. Within the village are an excellent general stores and surf shop together with Trevose Golf Club and the Treglos Hotel for that special night out. Constantine Bay is one of the 'Seven Bays for seven days' - four of which are within walking distance of the apartment. Nearby St Merryn (two miles) has pubs and take-aways. There is walking along the coastal path, cycling along the Camel Trail and horse riding all within a 15 min drive. Padstow is a 15 min drive and has a ferry to take you to Rock and Polzeath. Numerous gardens are accessible within an hours, or less, drive including Llanhydrock House and the Eden Project. There are lots of houses to visit owned privately or by the National Trust, such as Prideaux Place in Padstow.The area is very popular with surfers and has many beaches of different character to visit. Tintagle, Boscastle and Port Issac are also worth a visit.
