Tresita is a very comfortable seaside home providing the ideal place for a family holiday. It is equally attractive to those wanting to spend time on the golf course or walking along the wonderful coastal paths. It's therefore ideal for all generations! With plenty of space inside for those occasional rainy days, there's room outside for playing cricket, ping pong, boules etc - or just relaxing on the sunbeds! It is wonderfully peaceful, being in a private road, but has the advantage of being within walking distance of the golf club and beaches. The accommodation consists of 4 double bedrooms, a very large kitchen/dining area looking out onto the garden and a large sitting room, not forgetting the good sized porch ideal for storing shoes/beach gear etc and a large hall. (Golf clubs can be stored in the bespoke storage unit in the garage.) Two of the double bedrooms have zip and link beds allowing double or twin beds to be made up. A third bedroom has twin beds and the fourth bedroom has a single bed and bunk beds - so it caters for a maximum of 9 guests (assuming that a couple of them are children). The bungalow is well planned with the bedrooms being set apart from the living area so sleeping children will not be disturbed. The kitchen is superbly equipped and with views onto the fields beyond, it's almost a pleasure to have to cook on holiday! There is a separate utility room off the kitchen housing a freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer plus airing cupboard so there is never any problem in drying those rain/sea soaked clothes. The garden is a good size, on two levels. The terrace outside the kitchen has a table and chairs (plus sun umbrella if required) and during the summer, there's a ping pong table for the use of guests. The garden shed (and the hall cupboards) contains a variety of games and outside sporting equipment, as well as a barbecue. From what our guests have written in our Visitors' Book, Tresita meets everyone's requirements!
I live in London with my husband, two teenage children and working cocker spaniel. We all love spending time at Tresita and escape there as often as possible (but not enough!). The dog likes the house but would prefer to spend all his time swimming in the rock pools at Boobys Bay!

Having spent many years having holidays on the north coast of Cornwall, we decided to buy a property in Constantine Bay close to the wonderful golf club at Trevose and near the superb surfing beaches. It's so easy to walk to the golf club or beaches - or just jump in the car to visit the many local attractions - excerllent shops and restaurants in nearby Padstow, magnificent houses (Lanhydrock, Prideaux Place, Trerice etc), glorious coastal walks, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project - and further afield the Minack Theatre, Tate St Ives, Tintagel Castle ...
Tresita is a very easy to run, comfortable family home which we want others to treat as their home (not just a rental property!). There is definitely a "wow factor" when friends come into the extended kitchen for the first time - they're amazed by the spacious, light area. The four good sized bedrooms work well with an exceptionally generous amount of living space. Outside you can relax in the quiet, private (enclosed) garden or get competitive with table tennis, badminton, cricket, boules etc. There's a large table plus chairs (and benches) plus a barbecue - all you need for those al fresco meals!
"You have thought of everything we could possibly do, straightforward instructions complemented by your comfortable family home. Wonderful!"
"A lovely home away from home. We've had a superb week and have found Tresita a wonderful haven."
"Thank you! What a wonderful place to stay - we have enjoyed ourselves immensely - great weather and days on the beach. The children didn't want to go home! Love the painting and tiles in the kitchen. Many thanks again ....."
"A very special place to enjoy Christmas! Lovely house, lovely walks and Christmas morning swims (for those more crazier than others!). Thanks so much."
There's a huge choice of wonderful beaches for surfing and swimming within easy reach - a 15 minute walk to Constantine Bay, 20 minutes to Boobys Bay and a little further to Treyarnon, Trevone or Harlyn Bay (all of which also have car parks). Easy to go straight from the house for fantastic coastal path walks.
Although there is much within walking distance, a car would give a greater degree of flexibility. Bodmin Parkway railway station (which has a bus link to Constantine Bay) is 40 minutes' drive away whilst Newquay Airport is just 17 minutes' drive away. Reasonable bus service to Padstow, Wadebridge, Bodmin and Newquay.
Constantine Bay Stores which stocks virtually all your requirements (and is open from early until late in the summer) is 10 minutes' walk from Tresita. St Merryn - 1 mile - has a petrol station, hardware store, post office, bakery, pub, fish & chip shop and various restaurants. Padstow 4 miles. Wadebridge 8 miles. Bodmin 18 miles. Newquay 11 miles. Eden Project 15 miles. The Lost Gardens of Heligan 18 miles.
Banks, post office, numerous Rick Stein enterprises - restaurants/cafe/delicatessen/fish & chip shop/cookery school - plus good range of shops, picture galleries can all be found in nearby Padstow.
Surf lessons can be booked at Constantine Bay Surf Shop which also rents out wetsuits etc.
Trevose Golf & Country Club has 3 all-weather tennis courts, as well as a swimming pool and playground. It also has a good restaurant and excellent selection of bar food.
Bicycling - Hire bikes in Padstow for an easy ride along by the Camel Estuary to Wadebridge and then on to Bodmin. Horse riding - Stables near St Merryn. Fishing - Mackerel fishing trips from Padstow. Cooking - Rick Stein's Cookery School in Padstow. Eating - Great range of local restaurants and pubs including Rick Stein's "Cornish Arms" on the road from St Merryn to Padstow, and Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" at Watergate Bay.
Sightseeing - Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project, Trerice, Lanhydrock, Bedruthan Steps, Minnack Theatre - the list is endless!
