Tucked away in a quiet, tranquil location but close to the centre of Padstow and complete with parking, this fantastic cottage style property dwells in the grounds of the old school house and fronts onto the well maintained landscaped grounds. The Owners have worked to a high specification to provide beautifully styled decor and accompanying fittings which includes original artwork, enhanced by wood and carpet flooring in the living areas and bedrooms. Both cloakroom and bathroom have benefited from the installation of quality contemporary sanitary ware, not forgetting the upgrade of the kitchen where luxury items have been provided for those who like to cook locally caught fish and home grown produce from the nearby farm shop. You will find the attention to detail speaks for itself as every need is catered for. All this on tap before you venture down to the harbour or begin to explore the surrounding areas!

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.
