For an action-packed family holiday, this lakeside lodge is set within the luxurious self-catering Retallack Resort & Spa, just eight miles from Padstow and the stunning sandy beaches and crashing surf of the North Cornwall coast. It offers a sought-after combination of luxury and comfort, with a spacious interior that has plenty of space for your group to gather together, yet more than enough secluded areas and hidden corners for everyone to find a space to call their own. The owner's love of interior design is demonstrated by the blend of classic charm and contemporary flair, with flashy fabrics and one-off artwork helping to create a home from home that's pleasing to the eye, as well as the soul. There are four bedrooms with flexible configurations that can be customised depending on the group. Cosy up by the fire over the winter months before sliding open the doors to the deck to make the most of the sunshine. Spend long summer days reclining on the outdoor sofa before hopping into the hot tub as the sun sets. The resort boasts too many on-site facilities to mention. Older kids and adults can brush up on their surfing technique on the Flow Rider. At the same time, there are plenty of other watersports on offer out on the lake, including wakeboarding, paddleboarding, and an inflatable aqua park. After an exhausting day, you might not feel like cooking dinner. Handily, the restaurant offers a takeaway service that delivers restaurant-quality food right to your door. If you can bring yourself to leave, the surrounding area is blessed with more stunning beaches than you could hope to visit over the course of a single holiday here. Local standouts include Constantine, Harlyn Bay and Newquay – all approximately twenty minutes' drive away.

About Padstow

Padstow’s popularity has sky-rocketed in recent years. During the summer holidays, the town’s colourful streets are packed with holiday-makers window-shopping, gathering around the boat-filled harbour, and enjoying seafood in its famous restaurants. The town has a communal feel in the warmer months, as restaurant and café tables spill out onto the harbour walls. It’s a fantastic choice for a trip to the English seaside, with working fishing boats still heading...
