"Unparalleled house, cool, hip and fun. best big family holiday in uk."

We had the house for two weeks, and filled it with friends, children and grandparents. Absolutely fabulous no matter the weather. hired bikes and cycled everywhere, fun walking trips, boat trips, shopping (fudge,ice-cream, and not forgetting the clotted cream tea breakfasts!). The BEST views over the estuary and surrounding fields with Padstow twinkling at night - good bike ride home after dinner in the fun restaurants. Stunning house, comfortable and fab for entertaining - we did the post olympic party bbq. Everyone desperate to go back!!! try champagne in the hot tub at night and lobster for dinner!!!!
