- One of only a small collection of self-catering properties in the area with its own outdoor, heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi – the icing on the cake (or flake in your Cornish ice-cream!) for a family beach holiday in Cornwall. Tadpoles’ swimming pool is available during the summer months and the Jacuzzi is open for guests all year round.
- Truly stunning sea views from the first floor balcony and the house’s large private paddock located behind the swimming pool – a whole world of fun to be had for children, teenagers and ‘big kids’ alike. The paddock also makes exercising your dog hassle-free.
- The house itself is contemporary throughout with four comfortable bedrooms sleeping 10 and a spacious living area occupying the entire first floor, leading out to a balcony with sea views.
- Sitting on a small complex, Tadpoles is around a four-minute, flat walk along a lane to Trevone beach and the rock pools at Newtrain – Trevone’s lesser-known, yet rather special second beach. There’s a surf shop and cafe too, allowing you to leave the car at the property for the week if you wish.

The changeover day will always be adjusted to best include the holiday periods of Easter, Christmas and New Year, and will likely move to Friday, Saturday or Sunday at half-terms.

- Kitchen, living and dining
The open-plan kitchen and dining area at Tadpoles is a lovely space for coming together to cook, eat and entertain after a fun day exploring rock pools and working on your front crawl. French doors lead out to the pool and paddock beyond. The modern shaker-style kitchen is equipped to a very high standard, complete with an Aga, gas hobs and an integrated microwave. The large dining table seats 8 comfortably. A highchair is available on request.
The impressive living room at Tadpoles occupies the entire first floor, offering the space for two families to spend time together in comfort. Apex ceilings, generous seating options in contrasting ivory and navy, an open fire and a large, glass-fronted balcony with sea views really makes this room the heart of the home. The space is designed so that the adults can relax in front of the fire to one side of the room, whilst children and big kids alike are able to find their own spot on the other side of the room, complete with a fun table football. There is Sky TV in the living room.
- Bedrooms and bathrooms
The four bedrooms at Tadpoles are all located on the ground floor. The master bedroom is located at the back out of the house and has French doors giving the room its own access out to the back garden. Decorated in a bright, neutral colour palette with a 5ft king size bed, the master bedroom also has its own ensuite shower room which has recently been remodelled. Either side of the master bedroom are the family bathroom, the twin bedroom and the king bedroom with bunk beds. The second king room with is own ensuite is located to the right of the entrance hall when you walk through the front door. All bedrooms are beautifully furnished with a subtle, cool and coastal them running throughout.
The three bathrooms at Tadpoles are all modern in design and finished to a high quality with powerful showers.
Tadpoles is centrally heated throughout and has lot of useful storage facilities. There is a double cupboard in the entrance hall, perfect for keeping clutter out of the main living areas. There is wireless broadband and a telephone.
The outdoor space at Tadpoles is really what sets the house apart. The large patio is equipped with table and chairs. Patio steps lead up to the outdoor heated swimming pool* and Jacuzzi. Beyond the pool, there is a secret passageway which leads to your own expansive private paddock - your own fun and beautiful Cornish oasis for the whole family to make the most of.
Tadpoles is located in a small complex, set just back from the beach. The house itself is not overlooked by the other properties around it. The beach at Trevone is less than a five minute walk away - perfect for nipping between the house and the sand anytime you need to pop back. The village shop provides newspapers, fresh bread and pasties daily throughout the main season. You'll also find a cafe serving coffee, cake and casual lunches. Surf and beach equipment can be bought or hired from the surf shop and the Well Parc pub is also just a short stroll away - everything you need for a fantastic weeks holiday in Cornwall.
Explore the coast path in either direction - round the heading past Hawker's Cove to Padstow, or south to Harlyn, Trevose Head and beyond. Dogs can run free on Newtrain beach all year round, whilst the main beach is suitable for whichever activity takes your fancy - sunbathing, surfing, swimming, rock-pooling, beach games - or just some horizontal downtime soaking up the sun (with a bit of luck!) If that wasn't enough, Padstow Farm Shop is also easily accessed, supplying top quality meat and vegetables, amongst other goodies.

I don’t think anything could have made our holiday better – except the weather but that’s not within your remit. (Though if you could arrange it that would be great!)
Tadpoles was the perfect place for four generations of our family to come together and we had an absolutely wonderful time despite the unseasonably cold and wet weather. We did get a glorious afternoon on the beach and we swam in the pool every day regardless! The memory of my 2 year old grandson swimming with my 91 year old father will stay with me forever.
We would like to send huge thanks to the owners and everyone at Raintree (including Kevin who came out to fix the waste disposal) for making the house and garden so perfect. The pool and hot tub were simply fantastic and the spacious well designed house, with its Aga, was so beautifully furnished and arranged. Everything was sparkling clean including the pool and we wanted for nothing.
With very many thanks and best wishes to you all

From the Guestbook: We have had a fantastic family holiday in this beautiful house. The pool and Jacuzzi have added the to the relaxation. Our family live up and down the country and it has been so lovely to spend precious time together. The house is amazing, the attention to detail and comfort is what make the holiday all the better. We have a static caravan at Trethias, Treyarnon Bay so spend a lot of time in Cornwall, but we will be back to this house again with all the family. Thank you again for a great house

From the Guestbook: This was a fabulous family holiday (3 generations) Tadpoles has provided a wonderful base for us all and enabled us to revisit placed from our childhood. Treyarnon Bay is still our favourite. No Cornish holiday is complete without a trip to Padstow and to show the young’uns how to go ‘crabbin’ on the harbour. Lots of memories made

Fantastic service from our two Spanish cleaning girls and Katie the Pilates teacher as well as the ‘repair ‘ team. I was really pleased with everything organised for the holiday. My wife had a great birthday with presents and stuff over the whole week. I was particularly impressed with how Raintree managed to arrange such good weather! Given that my wife’s favourite pastime is sunbathing – apart from shopping – it worked out marvellously. So, if all things work out, hope to see you next year.
