Happy New Year

Happy 2018 to all our guests and we look forward to seeing you in the coming year.

Its 9c in Padstow today a bit windy but all the spring flowers are beginning to pop their leaves up even the ones in the ground.

All the best


Debbie and Martin


How warm has it been this Christmas in Cornwall, it seems it is warm enough to make the daffodils think its spring, they are all shooting up in the garden and one actually came out for Christmas day for us.

Lets hope it bodes well for a long hot spring and summer in 2018.



Merry Christmas from Martin and Debbie

Christmas is almost  upon us yet again, we are just making up the beds and putting up the Christmas  decorations for the guests  who are coming to join us for  Christmas and the New Year, some of our Christmas guests have been  coming to us  with all their family for over 20 years, its  quite amazing but you can’t beat a  walk on the beach  after a large lunch.

Padstow is open for business as usual with all the Christmas lights around the town and the harbour it looks lovely.

Why not come and join us one Christmas or New year too.

Merry Christmas and  happy New Year

A wonderful poem sent to us by one of our guests.

You may remember that we came to Yellow Sands for a week  and were in Flat 7. It was a wonderful week and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

As I did say at the time, I had written a poem regarding Harlyn Bay and the wonderful view that we had from the lounge and the relaxed week we had. I have enclosed a copy.

Yours faithfully,  

Margaret Payne  



             It was evening’s time of day,

                 When we arrived at Harlyn Bay;

             Having left work and city stress,

                 What  awaited? We could but guess.


             The setting sun had stayed awake,

                 Sinking slowly – for our sake?

             With burnished hue this perfect orb,

                 The sea, the sky – it’s rays absorb.


             I waken with the breaking day,

                 I look eastward across the bay;

             And with the light of morning dawn,

                 I see the springtime sun reborn,


             Here I have found peace and beauty,

                 Free from cares and city duty;

             The days, the hours, need no measure,

                 Blessed am I with timeless leisure.

Thank you Margaret for your very cleaver poem


Martin and Debbie
