Samphire Beach House | Cornwall

We’ve finally made it to Cornwall with Arla…It’s our first UK adventure!

We’re staying in Holywell Bay. It’s such a beautiful & quiet spot along the North coast of Cornwall about 3 miles away from Newquay.

Being our first trip with Arla, we really wanted a home away from home…That’s exactly what we’ve got!

Although this home is much nicer than our home….I MEAN, JUST LOOK AT THESE VIEWS!

Seriously though, this house is absolutely beautiful. We booked through Forever Cornwall Unique Retreats, they have so many amazing properties to rent all over Cornwall.

We’re staying in Samphire Beach House. It’s a 4 bedroomed, gated property with private parking less than 10 minutes walk away from Holywell Bay. We’re sleeping in the Penthouse (but there are 4 beautiful bedrooms you can choose from!) Waking up here is something we won’t forget in a hurry. It’s so relaxing, Arla is loving it, she’s never slept so well!

We have everything we could possibly need already here, we brought Arlas SnüzPod with us but we really didn’t need to! The owners added the cutest little baby welcome pack including a cot, highchair & baby gates. They really have thought of everything. The house is decorated amazingly throughout, everything is such high quality and really beautifully designed. We’re having major house envy!

The kitchen is well equipped, we have absolutely everything we can think of. We even arrived to lots of lovely welcome treats in the fridge! Quinn brought his own cafetière & freshly ground coffee (he is a real coffee snob) but we didn’t even need that! They honestly have you covered. We forgot our tupperware to take a picnic down to the beach but don’t worry, they have a cupboard full!

…Can we stay here forever please?

It’s such a beautiful house to come and visit with the family. You can even bring the dogs. The garden is enclosed making it perfect for the pooches. My mum came down to stay with us for a couple of nights & brought Ruby along with her. She loved it! If you let them know you’re bringing a dog, they’ll provide dog bowls, treats, towels and throws for the sofa.

The beach is dog friendly all year round & they’re lots of pretty coastal paths easily accessed from the house. We walked to a cafe in Crantock on one of our rainy days! It took us along the coastal path from Holywell Bay to Polly Joke beach to Crantock beach. It was the perfect length with Arla, she napped all the way to the cafe (approx an hour) sat with us whilst we had lunch, then napped all the way back! The views along the way are super pretty.

We adventured a little further afield on our sunny days too.

Here are our top picks:

1. Bedruthan Steps (National Trust)

2. Kynance Cove (National Trust)

3. Coverack Coastal Village

4. Minack Theatre & Porthcurno Beach

5. Padstow Harbour & town

6. St. Ives

We’ve spent an utterly wonderful week here, we will certainly be returning! It’s in a great location with everything you’ll ever need & more. Thank you Samphire Beach house & Forever Cornwall Unique Retreats for such a wonderful stay!
