With breath taking views over the Camel Estuary, Shifting Sands is a spacious, beautifully decorated holiday home which captivates that holiday vibe.

Take advantage of use of the owner’s slipway to launch your dinghies, kayaks and SUPs onto the estuary and enjoy your evenings sitting back on the patio whilst the burgers sizzle on the BBQ, watching the children release their final bout of energy on the playing field before recharging for another fun-filled day,
