A wonderful coastal home with private pool and hot tub

Holiday memories of Tadpoles last a lifetime. This coastal oasis invites families and friends to check-in, switch off and live a very Cornish life from this luxury base just a hop and skip from the shoreline of Trevone Bay. Offering 4 bedrooms, an open plan kitchen and dining space plus generous living room with sea view balcony across the first floor, Tadpoles is the perfect base for family and friends groups to come together in any season. Step out to the very spacious terraced garden with large garden table for al fresco dining and enclosed pool area with outdoor heated swimming pool, sunken hot tub and private meadow where children and dogs can safely play. If you can bear to leave your holiday haven, stroll down to the beach in under 5 minutes and choose from the sandy cove of Trevone Beach or the rockpools of Rocky Beach (as locally known). The popular harbour town of Padstow is a short drive away or walk the South West Coast path to the Camel Estuary that leads to the town. Tadpoles is better suited to 8 adults and 2 children.

Step Inside

Tadpoles is a detached modern home tucked away in a quiet area of Trevone yet is located just a few minutes walk to the beach. Arrive into a central hallway and lead into the kitchen and dining space, enjoy the very best of Cornish ingredients as you cook up your holiday menus and dine together over fine food and drink. All of the bedrooms are located on the ground floor and offer an individual style from contemporary red to coastal blues. Two of the bedrooms include a private ensuite bathroom and a separate family bathroom completes the ground floor layout. A central staircase leads to the light and lofty first floor where a spacious sitting room ensures comfortable seating for all whether gathered around the fire in cooler months or slide back the bi-fold doors to the balcony and let the summer sun shine in. From the balcony, gaze out to the blue sea view. 

From your Holiday Door

An oasis of holiday living awaits in the garden of Tadpoles. Step out onto the large lower terrace where the outside table and chairs and deep blue parasol offer a day long garden base for sunny breakfasts, morning coffee and of course evening suppers. Step up to the enclosed luxury of the pool terrace where a large outdoor pool and bubbling sunken hot tub tick that box for holiday indulgence. Wile away the day dipping in and out of the sparkling warm water, topping up the sun tan on the loungers and soaking in the hot tub as the sun goes down. The garden has been beautifully planted to offer privacy. A pathway leads around the pool area to a very spacious meadow with hedged border where games can be played and children and adults alike can stretch out. Leave the car behind and wander down the road in under 5 minutes to the beaches of Trevone. On the sandy side, golden sand and surf offer a beautiful playground for those halcyon beach days whilst the quieter Rocky Beach (as known by the locals) is perfect for shell-hunting and rockpooling. Behind the beach, guests can enjoy the cool surf inspired cafe and surf shop. Head along the coastal path to the west and arrive at Harlyn Bay, a stunning beach popular with surfers or don your walking boots and head up towards Stepper Point, a stretch of coast path offering some of the most beautiful seascapes in the county. Padstow is very nearby and well worth a visit whether you crave Rick Steins fish and chips sitting on the quay or the Michelin starred cuisine of Paul Ainsworth's eateries. From days out around the county to those restful days in your Cornish Gem, book a stay at Tadpoles and leave feeling rested, revived and longing to return!
