Brilliant holiday in St Merryn. Cowries is an excellent house. The local area is outstanding with beautiful beaches. Trevone Beach our favourite. Cowries is definitely a hidden gem!

What a beautiful house, in a great location. We loved being able to walk to the pub at the end of a busy day. The boys loved making lots of friends playing cricket in the play area. Polzeath beach & Trevone Bay are great for paddling. We will be back soon :-)

We have been coming to North Cornwall for 15 years now and always stayed in Padstow. I was hesitant at first to stay outside, but we loved this house and area. This house has everything you need, such attention to detail. All the beaches are fantastic. Lappa Valley & Camel Creek are good days our for children. Thanks, see you again.

An absolute 5 star home from home experience. This beautiful house lacks nothing and offers a real luxury family holiday. The location is perfect for untold attractions and unlimited bays, with each bay offering a completely different experience. Of all the many places we visited St Nectan's Glen in Tintagel is an absolute must. A completely unspoilt natural waterfall, it's a magical experience for all the family, just breathtaking. You can't help but leave a little piece of your heart in Cornwall after a holiday at Cowries, with endless days at the bay and a luxurious home to relax in of an evening. It really is just perfect *****

Short break for Royal Cornwall show - beautifully presented house, well equipped for adults and kids and wonderful location for exploring Padstow and the local beaches. Will return for longer next time.

I have just spent a few days at Cowries and found it to be a beautiful home, very comfortable with everything that you could possibly need for a super holiday. The furniture is modern and comfortable and the decor is light and bright. There are restaurants within walking distance and a bakery and shop nearby. There are beaches and many places of interest that are just a short drive away. The Padstow Christmas markets were definitely worth a visit or two, with many food stalls and stalls with a great variety of Christmas gifts. There were also bands and entertainment going on throughout the day. A perfect way to spend a few days away.

A few lovely days spent in Cornwall. 'Cowries' is a beautiful house, in an ideal location for dog walks on the beach or up on the cliffs around the coast line. Put your boots and coats on and away you go! The house was perfect for our family- the baby and dog were well catered for! It is cosy, stylish, and felt like home. The local 'Cornish Arms' Pub is a must for a Fish n Chip Supper and Padstow is lovely and close by; so you can easily stock up on Pasties, Fudge and a Cornish Cream Tea! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Just returned from an amazing weekend here at Cowries!! This is just the perfect place for anyone, it has everything you need to feel right at home, well actually it's ten times better than home really!! The rooms are spacious and light and beautifully decorated and accessorized. The beds are so comfy with quality bedding! The location was perfect with the seven bays on your doorstep. Great local shops and pubs. Fantastic place for walking! Can't wait to go back.
