Fourth time we stayed here and love the property and location!

Mr B S,

t 'Sandt is a wonderful holiday cottage in an outstanding coastal location. We loved the views from the sunroom window. The property was also exceptionally clean.

Mr Edward S,

We've rented well over 100 properties in the UK and returned to only one a second time, but, we'd happily return to 't Sandt again. Great situation, very cosy, lots of character.

Mr Ian M,

It was in a perfect location for us (we especially wanted to stay in Porthcothan). It was very well equipped with excellent WiFi. All round very comfortable, clean and welcoming. A perfect holiday.

Mrs A D,

Amazing property with great views and proximity to the beach...we hope to return!

Miss Jenny B,


Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!
