Drifting Sands

£826 - £2069 per week

This delightful property is in a prime location only a five minute amble to Newquay's popular Fistral beach. A beautiful enclosed garden to the front and rear, allows for catching the best of the sun during the day and at dusk, perfect for relaxing in after a busy day at the beach. A lovely sociable kitchen with breakfast bar is perfect for enjoying a morning coffee with the paper, or preparing an evening meal to enjoy in the light and spacious dining room, before cosying up in front of the lovely woodburner.

Soak up the atmosphere of the beach with a glass in hand at the popular beach bar on Fistral, or don the walking boots and explore the miles of beautiful coastline on foot. The glorious Crantock beach is also within a short walk, following the curve of the Gannel estuary when the tide is low, or all aboard the little ferry from the Fern Pitt café perched on the side of the headland when the tide is high.

Great location, fantastic accommodation. Excellent for families with young children as gardens are safe and secure. Well equipped with everything you could need. 10 minutes walk to beach and 20 minutes walk into town. Would definitely stay again.

Great location. Fantastic garden. Spacious kitchen. Great for families.

Fantastic location, ideal for walking to beach in wetsuits with boards anytime. House very comfortable and beautifully decorated and well equipped. Really good having 3 separate sitting areas so we didn't get on top of each other. Kids loved the Wii room. Lovely outdoor space with lots of seating. Glad to find a bbq, even though not mentioned in description. All round great house, large enough for all 8 of us...

The house was in a perfect location, we all absolutely loved it. It was fabulous to be able to walk to Fistral beach and in to Newquay . Such a spacious property with a beautiful large garden. Extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. A wonderful holiday and we will definitely return, thank you!

Excellent large house. Wonderful position.
