This lovely fisherman's cottage, full of character and charm, is located in the heart of the picturesque town of Padstow.  Its wonderful location makes it just a stone's throw away from all the pubs, shops and cafes that you could need, with a general store just a few doors down and only 200 yds from the harbour.  Also within a few short steps are the amazing restaurants that Padstow has to offer and although freshly caught fish and seafood, are popular choices, there is something for everyone.  Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth are firm favourites in town but there are plenty of others to choose from.

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.


A cosy cottage in a popular town. Many walks both in the immediate area and within a short drive. Cornish Horizons were very easy to book through and have a bright, easy to use website.
