Holidays in the south-west are what dreams are made of; families can go wild at some of the UK’s best family-friendly attractions, sample a touch of fine dining with delicious seasonal menus or relish time spent in the great outdoors with loved ones.

To help you decide where to take your family on your next trip, luxury self-catering company, Perfect Stays has put together its top three properties for the whole family to enjoy.

All rounder

Truly spectacular, Pentyak is a holiday home like no other. Designed with the family getaway in mind, it’s the ultimate staycation.

The family will fall in love with Pentyak’s incredible sea views over Harlyn Bay and its quirky features. Outside, children can run wild in the enclosed garden spending hours playing in the custom-built treehouse and bouncing on the sunken trampoline.

Sleeping up to fourteen guests, with three of the five bedrooms situated on the ground floor, this property is ideal for families with elderly relatives or guests with limited mobility. 

Surrounded by beautiful beaches and rolling countryside, with the opportunity to try your hand at kayaking, stand up paddle boarding or coasteering, this really is the pinnacle of family homes.  

Best of both worlds

Seagrass exudes luxury, offering an all-encompassing panoramic view spanning from Polzeath right the way round to Stepper Point. Breath-taking sea views sweep around the house and can be enjoyed from every bedroom – great for a family getaway.

Comprising three floors, this property’s use of space and open-plan design creates the ideal social living area. The large dining area is crowned by iconic glass lighting, the perfect space to indulge in an evening meal after working up an appetite at Polzeath beach.

Polzeath’s buzzing town is just a short walk away along the beach, which is family-friendly and a great spot for surfing, body boarding and coastal walks.

Return from a fantastic day with the family by watching your favourite movie in your very own cinema room, complete with a 65” TV, Sonos speakers and sound system. For those chilled days at home, snuggle up by the double-sided wood burner.

Sweeping views

An elegant beach haven with 180 degree views spanning Brae Hill, Daymer Bay and the sea, Sea Breezes is the quintessential seaside holiday.

Designed for large families to come together, Sea Breezes is situated just a short walk from the stunning Greenaway Beach, while the expansive golden sands of Daymer Bay can be reached within a 10 minute walk. 

The beautifully landscaped garden maximises the views and coastal location, with a carefully considered sheltered seating area and sumptuous sunken hot tub for true relaxation, whatever the time of year. 

Accommodating up to 12 guests, its generous expansion allows large groups to find their own space while enjoying quality time together.

With plenty to explore right on the doorstep of Sea Breezes, from award-winning local restaurants, to extensive water sports, there is something for everyone. A unique and all-encompassing holiday home that aims to provide a luxurious holiday experience in a breath-taking coastal location.
