Cowries has been renovated to a high standard and now provides an ideal retreat - attractive and comfortable - for families and friends wishing to holiday together.  With a second sitting room with TV, children will be happy to allow adults their me-time as they take advantage of the rays of the setting sun in the evening in the lounge or on the terrace.  The large, fully fitted kitchen has vaulted ceiling at one end, with feature windows allowing light to stream in, and is also big enough for happy family meals around the ample dining table.  Cowries is a detached property situated down the lane to the glorious sandy beach of Constantine Bay, which is only about 10 minutes' walk.  It is also within easy walking distance of the Constantine Bay Stores, which stocks all your everyday requirements, and the Trevose Golf Club if you fancy a game of golf (weekly membership available) or maybe just a meal in the restaurant in the evening.

This property offers a small group discount of 20% on full weekly bookings for parties of 6 or fewer at certain times of the year which means that it's limited to the use of 3 bedrooms - please contact us with bedroom preferences. This discount is automatically applied and the holiday price you are quoted reflects this.

Local Area

If you're looking for a traditional family beach holiday, Constantine Bay is hard to beat. With a wide, sweeping stretch of golden sand, it is one of those places that families return to year after year (and often generation after generation). A versatile area, Constantine Bay has something that will appeal to almost everyone, whether you're looking for an active holiday including surfing and other water-sports, a social gathering at the Trevose Golf Club or Treglos Hotel, or a family- and dog-friendly holiday where you can spend all day on the beach, or walk for miles along the winding cliff paths found along this stretch of coastline.  The beach allows dogs all year round, meaning that you don't have to leave your best friend at home when you holiday here.  And, of course, the kids will love exploring the tidal rock pools and wide expanse of sand that has long made this beach one of the best-loved along this stretch of the beautiful North Cornish coast. A popular holiday destination for those 'in the know', the Bay attracts many groups of families and friends who often holiday together, turning the area into a little community within a community in the busy summer months.


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
Excellent location. Excellent customer services from the Padstow Cornish Horizon teamMrs Helen Mahon - 16th September 2018
Cowries really is brilliantly equipped has everything possible for a family group goliday. Easy to put little ones to bed and not have to worry about there disturbing them .Second Christmas for us at this accommodation and it's great for us as a family of different aged children.Mrs A Vallis - 2nd January 2018
Have enjoyed our stay very much Mrs Sue Farmer - 23rd November 2017
We enjoy Cowries. Mr E Todd - 10th October 2017
We find the property suits our family fairly near the beach and the village. Booking is very straight forward and once booked you know everything will be taken care off and the property will be ready and waiting for you.Mrs C Emery - 25th June 2017
The kitchen is amazing, well equipped and lighting makes it welcoming anytime of the day.Mrs Andrea Coleman - 10th June 2017
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
