Super-friendly, accommodating staff and great food are just two of the draws of the Sands Resort Hotel & Spa in a stunning spot in western Cornwall, just above Watergate Bay – home to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant as well as a fantastic surfing destination. Nearby beach adventure centres offer cycling, surfing, climbing, canoeing and fishing. 

Not for nothing does Sands consistently rate highly in TripAdvisor's Traveller's Choice Awards. A paradise for younger children, with masses of fantastic facilities, it doesn't forget parents, with a spa, kids’ clubs and baby-listening. It's not as luxurious as some nearby child-friendly resorts, but for a relaxing family holiday or break it's great value.
