Wow, Wow, Wow, what a great find!!
Our family group consisting of two families, and 3 for the last couple of days stayed for a an amazing week in July.
This house is situated right in the middle of the village and right on the beachfront which the beach is accessed through a private secure access door. This was perfect and reassuring travelling with a 2 year old and other young family members.
The house is exceptionally set up with everything you need for families including beach toys, high chairs, baby cots, even baby cutlery and plates. The beds were luxurious and comfortable and waking up to the sound of the ocean was totally relaxing.
It was a great surprise to see the scones, milk, nespresso machine and prosecco for us to enjoy when we arrived. A really nice touch to our stay!! The prosecco did not last long!!
As a large family group there was more than enough space to accommodate everybody comfortably. We had a few lovely dinners in the formal dinning area and also outside area. We enjoyed having afternoon drinks looking out to the beautiful bay.
The house is situated opposite to the one of the best pubs in the village and we enjoyed a couple of meals there also.
We did have a couple of rainy days during our stay however this did not stop us from enjoying nearby walks, playing the board games provided and also watching the kids enjoy the smart tv/sky which are provided. They were very happy about this!!
We had a wonderful time and were very sad to leave.
We cant wait to book in again. When we return for our yearly trip to the area!!
I stayed at this fantastic house in the lovely village of Kingsand with my two daughters and their families and had the most enjoyable week. Even though a fun, busy time, the space this house affords you allows you to get a way from it all when required. The beach was literally in our back yard and the children were constantly out there and in the sea in what is a sheltered bay. Our boat shed was a great spot for coffee in the morning, whilst the girls enjoyed afternoon bubbles from the comfortable furniture on the deck enjoying views over the bay. We will definitely be back!
This is truly a beautiful home, where you can see that the owners have gone the extra mile with top quality furniture, fittings and style.
The location is amazing with a door from the backyard room that opens onto the sea!
There are lots of walks and beach areas with rock pools for exploring. (Hours of fun!) Also local pubs, one literally on the doorstep, which were really friendly, serving great food.
We would love to return.
We had a wonderful week in Kingsand. Spindrift was perfect for our 2 family groups, and the owners were very helpful in recommending a b & b for my parents to stay in right across the road. The house was extremely well stocked, which lots of lovely extra touches, it was cosy, comfortable and in a beautiful location. It soon felt like a home from home. We were lucky to have wonderful weather and could make the most of the sunny terrace and beach. Fantastic walking and running routes right on the doorstep. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
We've been holidaying in Cornwall for a number of years and have stayed in some lovely places, but nothing compares to Spindrift. With well-appointed bedrooms offering fabulous sea views and a garden door on to the beach, it's sensational. We'll definitely be back! The location was great, close to a shop and lovely pubs.
We also loved the small touches, like the Nespresso machine with a good selection of pods.
We had a very restful week at gorgeous Spindrift in Kingsand, Cornwall. It is a lovely, old, characterful house which has been decorated so tastefully. Our room had a comfortable super king bed, so we slept very well! The children were very excited by their cute bunkbed room. Sitting on the sun-trap balcony looking at the beautiful ocean was perfection. We were in a large group but there was still plenty of space for all of us in this house with everything we could need to cook meals for everyone.
Access to a small, quiet, beach through the boathouse in the garden was amazing, especially if you have children. Then you can have a hot shower in the shower room to wash the sand off. Everything has been thought of at this property.
Parking in a large car park near the house was brilliant. We just walked to the nearby pubs (the food was great) and shops within minutes. We could take the car and explore the local area in Cornwall and know we would always get parked close to Spindrift when we returned.
We visited at the beginning of Nov. We have stayed in Kingsand regularly for a number of years now and this is by far the best place that we have stayed in. The decor is tasteful and furnishings are really good quality. As we were staying during the cold months, we wanted somewhere with central heating, comfortable living room, clean, modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. Quite an ask when renting some places. The owners clearly want Spindrift to be as comfortable and stylish as possible and they have definitely achieved this; from the SMEG fridge, to Nespresso coffee maker (with capsules - thank you!), this place had it all.
There is plenty of room for everyone, we were a group of 5 and had so much space it was a really nice holiday experience. No-one was on top of each other and all the rooms are so nice that you weren't all just congregating in the one area all the time.
The sofas were large and really comfy, we all fell asleep on them at some point during the week. The TV had full Sky and the wifi was really good.
The kitchen was spacious and equipment was top of the range - thank you for the non stick pans!
The beds were huge and we had a great nights sleep every night. The view from the master bedroom is incredible.
The access to the beach is such a bonus and when the tide is in, it's so lovely to have your own space. We had some amazing weather and swam in the sea (in November!). Having your cup of tea on the beach was wonderful. The boys also had good fun with the table tennis.
My friends declared that they wished it was their house and are already planning their next trip. We're planning on another trip with my parents!
Obviously Kingsand is such a lovely village; it was our friends first visit and they loved the fact the pub was walking distance so there were no designated drivers.
Finally, a massive thank you to the owners who organised for the added extras which we weren't expecting at all - it's such a lovely welcoming gesture. We can't wait to be back!
