This spacious and homely cottage located in a quiet rural hamlet provides an ideal base from which to explore the nearby coast and beaches, it is also close to the main routes through Cornwall, so your options are endless! This cottage is over 200 years old and is full of character with exposed beams, a huge fire place with wood burner and low level small paned windows set in substantial stone walls. The cottage is approximately a 10 minute drive from the seven sandy bays of this coastline and about 4 miles from Padstow and Wadebridge, both of which are situated on the picturesque Camel Trail running alongside the river Camel. In both towns you will find a vast choice of places to eat and drink, and shops to explore. You could choose to spend the day enjoying the garden and patio area and, of course, Camel Creek Adventure Park which is within walking distance (although you wouldn't know it!).

Padstow is arguably now one of the best-known of Cornwall's holiday destinations - a working harbour still retaining the character of the fishing industry while also managing to reinvent itself as a modern holiday destination. Padstow has so much to offer the discerning holiday maker, with several beaches along the Camel Estuary, where you can also have a go at a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a variety of boat trips such as fishing excursions, speedboat rides, sea-life safaris and the ever popular Jubilee Queen. You can indulge your passion for food at an excellent selection of restaurants in the town, which is now the base for a number of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. If you're looking for more active pursuits, you can cycle the Camel Trail, the route of the old railway line running between Padstow and Bodmin. If walking is more your thing, there are many walking trails and routes waiting to be discovered, and if you're bringing a dog, there are plenty of dog-friendly places to explore. Gaining popularity in recent years is the Padstow Christmas Festival, now spread over four days, with cookery demonstrations, food and craft market, and entertainment.
Really nice location and although situated in a hamlet there were no problems in driving out onto main roads. Would definitely like to stay in this cottage again. Lovely area to holiday in.Mr Kim Barnett - 3rd August 2018

Very cosy cottage with a secure garden and lovely comfy beds! Close to great beaches, most only a 15 minute drive away. Cornish Horizons are an excellent company who keep you informed and really seem to care.Mr Russ Fleet - 7th November 2015
Been coming to Cornwall for over 10 years, at least three times a year and staying in different cottages. This is one of the nicest. Great location to get to all the beaches with Molly (our dog). Weather was glorious so we were lucky. Great food in Cornish Arms, St Merryn- one of Rick Stein's many businesses. Molly says- nice garden!Mr I - 29th January 2015
