Explore cliff top path, beaches and surrounding cycling trails. Perfectly placed to expend energy in the outdoor adventure playground that is the North Cornwall coast. Repose in tranquility each evening.
Cowries is the perfect pet-friendly holiday house for a small group or large family. Up to three four-legged friends are welcome to join the rest of the family and they’ll adore the gardens surrounding the house not to mention the paths and trails nestled in this glorious corner of North Cornwall. Kids of all ages will be wowed by the setting, how close you are to the beach, while the smallest will jump for joy at the large enclosed playground close by. For those with a pony on their wishlist, take the edge of with an hour’s trek or two courtesy of the nearby stables.
Inside Cowries even the least enthusiast of cooks will swoon over the kitchen. It’s pitched ceiling with skylights pours light on the far reaching worktops. Salad or a four course supper in prep, you’ll find all you need equipment wise to serve up a treat. It’s a social space too with a large dining table in the centre of the room. It’s bound to pull in the crowds for croissants or just a little afternoon baking. Sneak away to one of two sitting rooms where comfy sofas call, TVs await if required, or the fire can be cranked up on the coldest of nights.
Situated on the lane leading to Constantine Bay, all you need is a bucket and spade, and a little willingness to be half buried in the sand or to help dig the deepest hole on the beach. Weekly membership of highly regarded Trevose Golf Club, nearby, is available if you need to keep on top of your handicap while you’re away.
While the property sleeps 10, if there are only 6 or fewer of you, a low occupancy discount of 20% applies automatically - just tell which bedrooms you’d like use of.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
All on the ground floor there are five bedrooms. Race you to the super king master suite - it’s bound to be most popular. There’s also a king size, a twin and two bunk rooms. On the bathroom front there’s one with a bath and Aqualisa Aquamixa Thermo shower over, and there’s a shower room.

Cowries has everything you could possibly need for a family holiday in an enviable location. It can easily accommodate two families who are holidaying together with bathrooms servicing each family. The kitchen is huge and the cook needn't want for anything! Cooking pots, pans, utensils, glasses, crockery and cutlery to place set for at least 20 is all available. The fridge and freezer facilities are fantastic and the utility (not shown in the pictures) is large, accommodating another WC, washing machine and tumble drier. Our three dogs can stretch out in the utility (all in separate beds) after a long walk - a valuable asset that makes this property such a gem for those bringing dogs with them. You should have no concerns about how warm the property is during the winter; the heating is incredible. The surrounding landscape is some of the best in the country (in my opinion). There are pubs and take-aways near by and a lovely local store at the end of the road which stocks some fantastic produce). I would wholeheartedly recommend Cowries - the week we returned from our holiday we booked again we like it so much!Mrs Annalie Hadfield - 13th January 2019

We have never stayed in such a well equipped accommodation. Everything we needed was supplied in abundance.Mrs Andrea Coleman - 12th June 2016
A superb property that is so well equipped for all seasons. There is nothing that I can think of that is not supplied. It suited a family of different age groups due to its layout .Mrs A Vallis - 1st January 2016
Just spent a week in Cornwall staying at Cowries and what a great place it is, well laid out house with all mod cons and free wifi broadband which came in handy as mobile phone reception was quite poor. We had an 8 hour drive down to Cornwall due to bad traffic, but it was all worth it when we arrived at the house and walked in! Constantine Bay is within a FIVE min leisurely walk down the lane from the house,Bustling Padstow is just a short drive away.Front garden is a proper sun trap for chilling outside, not overlooked at all and secure if you've got pets. The redesigned kitchen was another great feature of the house and if you are into your cooking and baking then you are sorted. We would happily recommend Cowries to friends and family looking to have a holiday in Cornwall!Mr P - 13th June 2013
We really enjoyed our Christmas break at Cowries - we instantly felt at home (only Cowries is better equipped!!). Excellent kitchen, plenty of room for all of us plus surfboards. Great place for two families and the beach is superb for exploring and dog walking.Mrs S - 28th December 2012
