Situated between the Gannel Estuary and Fistral beach, Sandy Feet Retreat is an ideal little bolt hole for up to six guests.

Stayed at Sandy Feet Retreat and was a lovely place to stay with the beach being 5 mins walk away. Close to the town so can walk. Bedrooms are decent size and kitchen is very well equipped. Will be definitely back.

Lovely spacious apartment, only a 5 minute walk from Fistral beach, would definitely stay here again.

Sandy Feet Retreat is in a fantastic location with Fistral and Crantock beaches both a very short walk. The river gannel is 5 minutes away and is truly one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall and fantastic for paddle boarding and kayaking. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortably furnished with an amazing power shower. Highly recommend staying here, we will definitely be back.

We had a great weeks stay. The apartment is a decent size for a family. The beds are comfortable, plenty of clean towels and the provided children’s high chair and travel cot was excellent and saved us a lot of space in the car!

The location is amazing! We will be booking again for next year!

Recently stayed at Sandy Feet apartment, the trip started excellent with the booking process being so easy, we was then easily accommodated to suit our early arrival. We arrived at the apartment exactly as described, entrance easy and efficient. Apartment was absolutely spotless and fully equipped. Would definatly stay again.

This apartment is in an amazing location, 5 mins walk to Fistral and Crantock beaches. It has been newly decorated to a high standard and was very clean and fresh. We are a family of 5 and there were 3 good sized bedrooms with comfy beds and clean white bedding and towels. The living space was perhaps a bit small compared with the bedrooms but we have teenagers so they spent time in their rooms and we were out and about most of the time. There was decent WiFi which is always important with teenagers!! and the kitchen was well equipped, with milk in the fridge and tea and coffee for when we arrived. We really enjoyed our stay and thought it was great value for money.
