Beach Retreat is ideally situated for a relaxing family holiday by the sea. The house is so close to the sand dunes and beach that you don’t have to find a place to park the car or even cross a road to get your feet wet! Holywell Bay is one of the gems of the north Cornish coast with a really family friendly beach, some fantastic walking, a golf course nearby and some of the best surfing waves in Cornwall. Dog friendly with enclosed garden.

Beach Retreat offers spotlessly clean, comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people and is ideal for couples or small families that like more space and enclosed gardens. The house has its own driveway with parking space for 2 or 3 cars and is within the Pennasville Estate with enclosed gardens suitable for younger children or your dog.

There is a footpath leading directly to the beach. The beach at Holywell is partly owned by the National Trust and has a lifeguard patrol during the summer months. A freshwater stream runs from Holywell village on the western side of the bay and offers shallower and safer water for younger children, (trying to dam the stream on a summer day can keep children of all ages occupied for hours!). Because of the short distance to the beach, our cottages offer excellent access to the Cornish coastal footpath. The Pennasville Estate is a safe and reasonably secure site; with electric automatic gates at the main entrance and large wrought iron gates at the top of the site. There is a completely enclosed play area suitable for children up to 12 yrs old - with a playhouse and boat, perfect for playing pirates. For older children there is an adventure climbing frame with a slide as well as tyre swings; and a separate grassed area with a football goal setup at one end. The Games Room has a pool table and table tennis table.

Ground Floor: Kitchen, dining area and sitting room followed by a twin bedroom with en-suite WC.
First Floor: Master bedroom, with sea views, with 5' double bed and en-suite shower room with sink and WC. Double bedroom, also with sea views, with a 4'6" double bed followed by a twin bedroom. There is a separate family bathroom with over bath shower. There is a stair gate at the top of the stairs.
Exterior: The enclosed garden has a patio and grass area with external table & chairs. There is also a fully enclosed children's play area on site.

Holywell Bay is a little village on the North coast between Perranporth and Newquay. It has a beautiful beach with fantastic sand dunes and a little stream for paddling for those daunted by the waves. In the summer months the beach is patrolled by lifeguards and of course, surfing lessons are available for those keen on learning.

These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the towns main industry, where as it once used to be a major export port for the counties mining efforts as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Womens and Mens Gig Championships are held here, as well as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub tropical gardens in the centre of the town.

Neighbouring Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002 sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times.
