Heylyn is set in a truly tranquil setting by the tidal creek at Little Petherick and boasts a large decking area at the back providing a delightful vantage for watching the wildlife or dining al fresco in the sunshine, with views of the river enjoyed from the sitting room, decking and bedroom 1. Heylyn is well equipped, comfortable and cosy with attractive decor and furnishings and is the perfect base for those who love walking and enjoy being close to nature as the Saints' Way passes your front door.

With a ladder (with lockable gate) that allows access to the river when the tide is in, it’s the perfect property for anyone who loves being close to the water and to nature, with the added benefit of being just 3 miles from Padstow and close to stunning sandy beaches in the seven bays. The Old Mill House Bistro is 200 yards walk, very handy for lunches, cream teas and an evening meal. In addition The Journeyman is excellent for a good curry and is only up the lane. You will be spoilt for choice in Padstow with a large selection of restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries and don’t forget to hire bikes and cycle to Wadebridge on the Camel trail.

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.
