The Boathouse at Little Petherick is a lovely conversion of a period, detached house in a beautiful creek-side setting upriver from Padstow. This characterful property, with its attractive slate-hung elevations, has direct access to the water from the garden and is perfect for those who want to bring along kayaks or paddleboards to explore the waterways. Designed in such a way that most rooms face to the front and enjoy pretty views across the creek. The Saints’ Way footpath passes right by providing good walks from your doorstep and the famous harbour town of Padstow is just a 10 minute drive away, or a 45-60 minute walk down Little Petherick Creek. With easy access to the fantastic north coast sandy beaches this is a perfect base to enjoy the 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.
