The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Situated in the coastal village of Holywell Bay, Windrush is an impressive holiday let with spectacular beach and sea views.

    Holywell Bay is a wide beach on the north Cornwall coast, flanked by rolling sand dunes. The open space is popular with surfers, bodyboarders, families and walkers. Catch a morning wave, stroll across the sand with the dog, or relax with a beach barbecue, while the kids play in the stream.

    On the beach, you can explore the fascinating grotto-like Holywell Cave with its calcium deposits, and at low tide, discover an old Argentinian coaster just offshore. At high tide, wander the sand dunes, some of which are 60 feet in height, and find the perfect spot for a picnic. The dunes also provide a romantic setting to watch the sun go down.

    I have just spent New Year at this property with my family for 3 days and I wanted to let you know I thought this home was perfect. Every little detail within the property had been thought of, from the decoration and colour schemes to furnishings and more. This property was warm and welcoming and I will definitely be coming back. I loved everything about it.

    Stunning location and stunning property. You should be very proud to be able to own a place as beautiful as this one. I've come away with a lot of ideas as to how to decorate my home. I loved the style Windrush had throughout. Thank you so much.
