Mr Barry M,

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage. We had a fantastic week. The weather was beautiful. We loved visiting many places, Tintagel, Camel Trail, but the best was Trevone Bay. Can't wait to visit again.

Mrs Elizabeth B,

Lovely property in a great central location and the parking was a bonus!

Mrs Lindsay W,

Fantastic holiday. Wonderful cottage, with everything we needed, in a perfect location. Thank you!

Mr Gary P,

We have been visiting Padstow for many years. It is our favourite holiday location and Methven is the best cottage we have stayed in. Location and facilities are perfect. Do stay here (but please not the weeks we want - he he)

Mr Martin L,

The holiday cottage was in the centre of Padstow it was quiet and very clean and having a parking space was a bonus. Padstow offers lots to do and see from coast walks, beaches, cycle hire and local pubs offering excellent food. We have already booked again for next year.

Mrs Debra H,

Really enjoyed it, lovely cottage in great location.

Mr Peter J,


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.
