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.  With lots to do in the area from walking or cycling the Camel Trail, enjoying the fantastic beaches including the ones in Padstow estuary or taking the ferry across to Rock.  Return to Oyster Cottage after a hard days enjoying yourself and relax in the sun in the shared courtyard or, in the cooler months, cosy up by the cream log burner style "Opti-myst flame and smoke fire, all the beauty of a real fire at the flick of a switch".

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.
