    Looking at Cornwall for me, my wife and our 5 and 3 year old. Any recommendations?

    Stayed way down west at Vellendreath, sennen once. Wasn’t cheap but perfect location.

    Had many a good time with the kids at higher laity farm cottages over the years. Nice beaches just minutes away, st ives etc in driving distance and a Tesco etc down the road.


    Had a great stay here-
    Belongs to one of the STW massive.
    Close enough to hear the waves crashing into the sea wall.

    In true STW style, not quite a sea view but 5 minutes from Widemouth bay:

    Budds Barns

    Stayed there many times.

    Stayed Here and it was tremendous. Great village.

    Not sure what kind of accommodation you’re after, but I’d recommend this place. Again, not cheap, but fantastic location, specially for kids. Hard to imagine anything more traffic free.

    I’ve never “glamped” in my life, but I’ve been in these and I’ve seen less substantial houses! It’s on the farm next to us (no commission on recommendations, sadly), and trust me, it’s quite a view!


    Any of the cottages at trebarwith strand.


    Also interested in this after years of staying in St Ives town something with a difference view and less “more” would be perfect.

    Carbis Bay Hotel were building some awesome looking beach houses the last time we were there.

    Will be spendy though…


    I’ve stayed at Pentire farm in one of the bigger houses, but the national trust has a bunch of smaller properties close by and it’s a great location for coastal walks with Bedruthan steps being in easy reach.

    In even true-er STW style, why not consider Pembrokeshire instead of Cornwall?
    Easier journey, fewer tourists, cheaper cottages, empty beaches . . . no contest (in my opinion).


    Prussia Cove, no public cars within a mile or so, no ice cream vans or shops either, turn up, supermarket shop in advance, no need to leave till you go home.
    Been going for 25 years.

    ha! I was going to chime in but jkomo beat me to it, thanks for the recommendation.

    anyhow, at risk of emphasising the point, my place…

    if you want sea views it looks straight out over the ocean to the surf crashing onto Cowloes reef 100m away, and you are right opposite the lifeboat house which the little ones love if the boat is launced down the slip.

    also for little ones there is a lovely sheltered sandy beach directly opposite that even in height of summer is never crowded, or if you want the main beach and the surf its a minute away along the prom.

    if you don’t know west cornwall, its a stunning place. quite a bit less touristy than other parts of cornwall, Newquay especially, has a very strong arts culture with loads of great galleries and places to visit, and as well as the beaches there are high moors full of stone circles and iron age villages to explore. stunning road cycling too!
