Monte Gordo is an impressive and spacious house in the little hamlet of Tregonce near St Issey.  Sited in a peaceful location in beautiful countryside yet only 2.5 miles from two fantastic restaurants and less than 2 miles to the local traditional pub.  The harbour town of Padstow, with its array of restaurants and shops, is 5 miles by road but only a 1.5 mile walk.  Monde Gordo's rural position affords fantastic views that encompass beautiful countryside, Little Petherick Creek, the Camel Estuary and Padstow town.  The nearby Camel Trail is a popular and scenic walking and cycling path which takes you to Padstow in one direction and onto Wadebridge and Bodmin in the other.

The owner's unique style is evident in this eye catching property.  A perfect comfortable home for families or gatherings of friends with many great family friendly attractions nearby including the Royal Cornwall Showground and some of Cornwall's finest beaches a short drive away.

Local Area

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.


Our family had a wonderful holiday at Monte Gordo. It is in a great location, with close access to the Camel Trail. It is very much home from home, everything you needed was there. The children enjoyed playing some of the board games that had been left for us to use. The garden is perfect for children to have fun running around in. The views from the master bedroom, patio, lounge and dining room were magnificent. We watched many beautiful sunsets. We really enjoyed our holiday in this quiet and peaceful location and will definitely be back. Thank you. Mr Simon Lewis - 28th August 2017
What a great holiday! We have stayed in various parts of Cornwall many times before - and loved it more and more each time - this was definitely the case again this year! It was great to stay in such a large family house where all of us could chill out when we wanted but also enjoy busy days out nearby at some of our favourite places in Cornwall, just a short drive away (especially Kernow Chocolate - a new one to add to our list!). The showers were amazing (so powerful!) and we loved all the extra features to the house that really came as a surprise to us - such as SCRABBLE, the Wii, toilet roll... not to mention the fishies! Thank you for convincing our family Cornwall never gets old - and we hope to maybe come again some time!The Iacono family - 13th August 2016
We have had a great stay, lovely views! Very much enjoyed a quiet stroll into Padstow via the Camel Trail in the evenings. Many thanksThe Brookes family - 6th August 2016
Very quiet place to stay - we have very much enjoyed it here. Your cottage has plenty of space for a large family, the water pressure is amazing!! Lovely views and the things you left in the cottage for our use were very much appreciated - (tea bags, sugar, milk etc). Many thanksThe Bambridge family - 30th July 2016
Many thanks. We felt like home away from home. It was a great holiday.Dr Thampi - 30th May 2016
