Click to book Treasure Box now: from £200 per night A recently updated space, Treasure Box welcomes four guests to enjoy a few days in Padstow. This home is ideally located in a quiet but central position just moments from Padstow Harbour. Plus, there’s free parking so that you may easily explore all that this part of Cornwall has to offer without any stress. Inside, the dining and living room invites friendly socialising, while the kitchen is fully equipped and ready for wonderful home-cooking. Thanks to the outdoor dining table, guests lucky enough to stay at Treasure Box can also enjoy dining al fresco on the charming terrace with views of the coast and estuary. When you’re ready to head out for the day, you’ll be delighted to find yourself surrounded by pubs, shops, cafes and more. The nearest beach is a little outside of the town but still only a fifteen-minute walk away. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Grey Seal now: from £200 per night With charming views over Watergate Bay, Grey Seal is the perfect place for a small family or a couple of friends. Located just four-hundred metres from the beach, you get the best of both worlds staying here. Enjoy wonderful views, easy access to the beach and none of the crowds. The open-plan layout invites guests to spend quality time together, whether that be enjoying a delicious meal, playing board games or simply relaxing on the glass-fronted balcony. You can also make use of the communal gardens or fire up the barbecue for an exceptional dinner. Keen surfers will be delighted to hear that your hosts have provided a free parking spot and a surf cage with an outdoor shower, so be sure to pack your surfboards. Those who are less keen on conquering the waves can enjoy long strolls along the beach or explore the surrounding area. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Apple Bobbing now: from £185 per night Bursting with character, this cute-as-a-button barn conversion found on a forty-acre Cornish farm offers a real escape from the stresses of modern life. You'll have all the charming rustic touches you would hope for — exposed stone walls, a vaulted ceiling and a log burner — but there's a modern feel, and absolutely no chintz. You can slip into your own wood-fired hot tub just outside the back door, and the host has been thoughtful enough to provide a generous stack of logs to get you started. Meet the farm animals or set off alongside the private Nature Reserve to discover the private shingle beach on the River Tamar. Later, take advantage of some of the farm's other surprises — a tennis court, a hammock hidden away in the orchard, and a basketball hoop. With a number of extra activities also bookable, you can take part in a foraging workshop, try out stand-up paddleboarding or get involved in local wine tasting. Alternatively, you can drive to the port city of Plymouth in about forty minutes and visit the National Marine Aquarium. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
Click to book The Gulls now: from £200 per night The quaint seaside town of Looe extends out below this hilltop house, and views stretch across the turquoise Cornish sea to St George’s Island. It’s a short, downhill stroll to the harbourfront where seafood restaurants serve the fresh catch of the day, and boats are ready to whisk you away to wildlife spotting along the shore. Right outside the house, you can join the South West Coast Path to stretch your legs in the sea air. True to its coastal location, the décor inside is fresh white and blue with nautical-themed feature walls and soft furnishings. Exposed stone walls in the spacious double bedrooms and living room reveal the history of the house. The kitchen has everything you need for self-catering and meals can be served at the dining table by the floor to ceiling windows. Sleeps up to 8 | 4 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
