If you want to be in the heart of the town, Quayside Cottage is the place for you.  Situated within feet of the bustling working harbour, the decor reflects its seaside location and provides a comfortable and relaxing base for your holiday. If holiday catering is not for you, don't worry - the renowned Chough Bakery is just across the street, ideal for your breakfast croissants, and Padstow's multitude of varied eateries are all close by.  Forget your car - the sandy town beaches are a short walk away or a trip on the foot ferry takes you to Rock on the opposite shore of the estuary. Overlooking the town is the Elizabethan Manor House, Prideaux Place - why not take a tour and then enjoy a cream tea in the Terrace Tea Room. For the energetic, Padstow lies at the start of the scenic, mostly traffic free Camel Trail and right on the spectacular South West Coast Path. Should you wish to venture further afield, several more glorious sandy beaches are near by as are the championship golf courses at Trevose and St Enodoc - the rest of Cornwall is easily accessed and waiting to be explored.

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.

Beautiful cottage, very comfortable and great location. The Dunfords - 5th August 2017
Lovely cottage and very convenient for everything. - 29th July 2017
We stayed in this property a couple of years ago. The living room furniture has been replaced for a much more comfortable corner sofa. We had a problem with DVD player which was sorted out very efficiently. You are so close to the harbour that you can still feel part of it, even when indoors. Had a wonderful holiday. Thanks Mrs Frances Remmington - 25th July 2017
Wow, what a fantastic cottage - absolutely everything you could and loved the fact you could step outside and everything is there. J & J - 12th July 2017

Very comfortable in great location for what we requiredMr Paul Whitehouse - 28th March 2017
Loved Cornwall. I'll be back! What a lovely cottage with everything you need! It was a little noisy occasionally but only in the daytime. I would expect noise in a town anyway and it certainly didn't spoil my stay. Mrs Judith Hackney - 19th March 2017
Cosy and comfortable ideal for a couple or small family, lovely and warm for our winter break. Fantastic location in the centre of Padstow just a stroll to shops, restaurants, pubs, ferry service and attractions.Mr Iain Butterworth - 26th January 2017
Thought it would have been useful to say that the property was attached to a restaurant. Luckily it was not open in the evenings. Great fireworks over Padstow Harbour. Mrs Lisa Hart - 6th January 2017
