Three storey turn of the century family house in the conservation area of Padstow.  Ideal for large family parties, this spacious, well equipped home, recently improved and refurbished, has a lovely large kitchen/diner, a second sitting room with views over the rooftops to the estuary and a small patio garden which benefits from sunshine most of the day.  In the evenings the sitting room at the top of the house is great for adults to chill out with a glass of wine while the children watch TV in the lounge.  The property is only a minute's walk to the harbour, shops, pubs, cafes, the ferry to Rock and numerous highly recommended restaurants, including Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant. There are beautiful sandy beaches in the river Camel estuary, island cruises, fishing trips and nearby surfing, sailing, kayaking, golf and horse riding. The Camel Trail, which leads all the way through to Bodmin along the route of the old railway line, starts from Padstow and is popular with walkers and cyclists who enjoy the scenery and the wildlife through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just down the coast are lovely cliff top walks and a number of glorious sandy beaches - great for surfing and families.

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.


Would recommend booking with Cornish Horizons - staff are always helpful and friendly. 12 New Street is a great property large enough for 2 families. Home from home with everything you need in the property from washing machine tumble dryer to a slow cooker.Mrs H L Penn - 6th January 2017
Great property and location. Thank you for a lovely time in Padstow.Mrs H L Penn - 12th January 2016
Great property for a family get together, our children loved all the different levels. It was perfectly located, we didn't have to use the car all holiday.Mrs J Bagley - 3rd November 2015
Have just returned from a 10 day stay in Padstow. We were there to celebrate my mothers 90th birthday, she lives in Padstow, but there were far too many of us to stay with her. Number 12 was an excellent choice, just round the corner to the Metropole Hotel, where we had her party. Also plenty of space to have a small family meal on the day. We were so pleased to find the kitchen so well stocked with all the utensils that you would need, to cook a 3 course meal for 8. The shower room was also a great plus, with 2 young grandchildren staying with us the bath was also well used. We all loved the top floor lounge, to escape to for a bit of chill out time. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.Mrs S - 21st February 2015
What a lovely house 12 New Street is. Home from home, equipped with everything you need. The house is very clean, very, very warm and the shower room is to die for. A short stroll down the hill to the shops and pubs, great location and a little further on to the beach. I can't wait to come back in the New Year! Thank you for an enjoyable stay.Mrs P - 8th January 2015
The cottage is beautifully maintained and situated perfectly within the village. Highly recommended. Another great stay.Mr W - 8th January 2015
