Not been to Cornwall before but after staying here would definitely recommend it as finer place to stay after seeing many of other options whilst staying I'm Cornwall. Lovely approach to it very central location and beautiful beach less than 10im walk away with most divine scenery.

We spent a week at Sandbank in June, the owners were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment which was well equipped and comfortable. We would certainly stay again. It is handy for many places to visit.

Great for families but quiet enough for people without children. Not quite as near to the beach as we expected so families who... More

We spent a week in the pixie cottage a week before Easter whilst visiting family and it really was excellent! Great location, lots of parking and the cottage had everything we needed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the eastern side of St. Ives Bay, we are ideally located for that quiet Cornish getaway. We are a small family-owned site of Apartments and Bungalows set in peaceful landscaped gardens, and nestling in acres of grassy sand dunes close to three miles of beautiful beach that stretches from Hayle to Godrevy Lighthouse at Gwithian. All our accommodation is spotlessly clean and well-equipped for your self-catering holiday, and our large gardens and play area provide a safe environment for children. Surfing, cycling, fishing, and boat trips can all be accessed locally, and there are plenty of good pubs and restaurants around for good food and ales. Paradise Park, Flambards, Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project are all within an easy drive from Sandbank. From public gardens to golf, cliff-walking, visiting family fun parks or simply relaxing on the beach, there is something to entertain the whole family on your Cornish break. We are also one of the few remaining sites that welcomes dogs, plus their well-behaved owners, and ideally located close to countless attractions and stunning beauty spots. Open March to October. ... more   less
