A character cottage located in a quiet spot in the heart of the old town. Sympathetically modernised, many original features have been preserved; beamed ceilings, stone fireplaces and stripped doors and floorboards, all beautifully complemented by painted furniture. The result is a truly charming and comfortable house a delight to come home to after a day on the beach or a bracing walk on the cliff path in a force 9 gale! 14 Cross Street is ideal for walking into the town to visit the many excellent pubs and restaurants as it is only a minutes' walk from the harbour. Padstow is full of charm with beautiful unspoilt harbour and a maze of picturesque narrow streets with many interesting shops and galleries as well as tea shops, patisserie, delicatessen - not forgetting several pasty shops! There are beaches both sides of the river estuary; only a few minutes' walk on the Padstow side and a quick hop across the river on the ferry to get to Rock.

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.

Very Happy With My Cozy Winter Cottage ...Miss J Dickson - 3rd April 2017
A really lovely cosy cottage for our first time in Padstow - Beds really comfy, everything we needed Wardrop Family - 31st March 2017
14 Cross Street had everything that was needed. It was lovely to arrive to find the tea tray and milk. Cottage has been beautifully furnished and makes you feel very welcome- couldn't have asked for a better location.Miss M - 1st May 2015
A superbly located cottage within a few minutes walk from the harbour but just far enough away from the activity in town centre to enable a very peaceful holiday. The spacious rooms are very comfortable and the cottage is well equipped for everyone's needs. This was our first visit to Padstow and this cottage has added to the happy memories we have from a wonderful holiday. We will definitely return.Mr W - 24th September 2014
