Sands Resort Hotel on the Cornish North Coast has plenty of indoor and outdoor space – ideal for a worry-free post-lockdown staycation.

Discover the new hotel nature trail and make the most of playgrounds and sports facilities as well as a daily outdoor entertainment programme. Hire bodyboards and wetsuits (free of charge) and head to Porth Beach which is only a 5-minute walk away.

The team at Sands Resort have put a number of measures in place to make you feel safe and relaxed during your stay and have reduced the available rooms by a third.

Book with confidence: for 2020 holidays can be amended up to 7 days before your arrival at the hotel. If you need to postpone your holiday, the hotel will hold your deposit for up to 12 months.

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 – 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’ arts and craft sessions and baby-listening. It's not as luxurious as some nearby child-friendly resorts, but for a relaxing family holiday or break its great value.
