Little Dolphins is a 2 bedroomed modern terraced cottage built in the grounds of the old school at Padstow. Attractively furnished and well equipped, it could not be more handy for the town with its interesting shops and seafood restaurants being only 2 minutes' walk to the quaint harbour. Little Dolphins is located in a quiet spot with a tiny patio garden for eating al fresco, and also has the benefit of a designated parking space. Padstow is a working fishing port so there is something going on whatever time of year you visit; December, for instance, is a very special time, when the townsfolk go to great lengths to festoon the town with a multitude of coloured Christmas lights.

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.
