Alexandra House is a charming turn of the century family house centrally located within the conservation area of Padstow. This delightful home has spacious rooms decorated to emphasise a light and airy feel throughout and is ideal for large family parties. The kitchen/diner is well equipped to include a baking box and also incorporates a seating area ideal for relaxing, reading the paper or chatting to the chef!  French doors lead out onto a private patio and sun trap enclosed garden. The property is only two minutes' walk to the harbour, the ferry to Rock and numerous highly recommended restaurants, including Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant. There are beautiful sandy beaches on the river Camel estuary and on most days you will see wind and kite surfing and dinghy sailing on the river as well as the comings and goings of the Padstow fishing boats. Sheltered beaches are within an easy walk or just down the coast there are a number of glorious sandy beaches - great for surfing and families. The Camel Trail, which leads all the way from Padstow to Bodmin along the route of the old railway line, passes through Wadebridge where some lovely, unique shops can also be found.

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 fantastic cottage in a lovely location. The garden is alive with birds and is a lovely place to sit at any time of day.
