Super-friendly, accommodating staff and great food are just two of the draws of the Sands Resort Hotel & Spa in western Cornwall, just above Watergate Bay (home to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant as well as a fantastic surfing spot). Not for nothing does it consistently rate so highly in TripAdvisor's Traveller's Choice Awards.

A paradise for younger children, with masses of fantastic facilities, Sands doesn't forget parents, with a spa, kids’ clubs and baby-listening. It's not as luxurious as similar nearby resorts, but for a relaxing family holiday or break it's great value.
