Tucked away on Newquay’s Pentire headland, with epic views of the River Gannel and Crantock in the distance sits the stylish Sande, a modern holiday apartment for four, with everything you could possibly need on your doorstep for the perfect Cornish break.
With private access to the tidal River Gannel below, a sunny, sheltered patio space and grassy communal gardens – Sande is a Newquay holiday apartment which combines laid back outdoor coastal living with modern, bright and airy interiors. The property is one of just seven elegant weather-boarded residences forming The Pavilions, an exclusive development in the private grounds of Corisande Manor which is in the sought-after and secluded area of Pentire headland.
Split across two levels, this two bedroom terraced cottage has been styled carefully by its owners – both artists – ensuring it combines beautiful furnishing with a relaxing holiday ambiance. With coastal colour palettes and attention to detail, this property benefits from an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, creating a social space for small families or couples.
The minimalist, well-equipped kitchen is easy on the eye, with luxurious counters and a casual breakfast bar for two. The dining area and living space has ample seating for all guests, perfect for watching the ever-changing views of the Gannel through the French doors to the lawn, gardens and sea view beyond.
Upstairs, you’ll find two bedrooms, one of which is en suite (featuring a walk in shower) with fantastic elevated views of the river below. In the principle bedroom, expect to wake up to the sight and sounds of a true coastal escape. The owner’s original art easel has been carefully upcycled into a mirror, and nautical boat sculptures dot across windowsills throughout the property. The second bedroom has twin beds and is next door to the family bathroom.
Like the rest of the Pavillion apartments, Sande has its own patio and lawned terrace with commanding views across the Gannel. Through a gate at the bottom of the garden you can access the sand below, and at low tide stroll across the footbridge or paddle across to Crantock beach, where there’s also a coffee truck on the beach. You have full access to these shared private grounds, which include terraced lawns, a seating area under a pergola, and an outdoor après-beach shower, ideal for rinsing off before returning to Sande.
