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.


Everything we could ever have needed was included in the property. Lovely decor and comfortable beds.Mrs Aileen Barker - 26th August 2018
A lovely property in a great location. Mr mark johnson - 19th August 2018
It was perfect. The owners had thought of everything. All mod conveniences, sparkling clean and so comfortable. A pleasure to stay there. Will return. Would definitely recommend the house and the area. A great location as a Base. Good having Tescos so near too.Mrs Jane Willcox - 30th July 2018
We were very impressed by the standard of the property and attention to home from home details. Overall 10/10 we had a lovely holiday - thank you. Mrs Kathryn Price - 3rd June 2018
This is our second stay at cowslip cottage and as before we were very happy. The cottage was spotless and everything you could need was there. Quality cottage looking forward to staying again!! Thank you Fantastic clean quality hol cottage Ms Sharon Cottell - 6th November 2017
We stayed in Cowslip cottage for five weeks and found it perfect as a base for exploring Cornwall. It was great to be within walking distance of Padstow and the beautiful countryside around the estuary. We particularly enjoyed exploring the fabulous range of places to eat and drink, all within a short distance of the house. Padstow Farm Shop is particularly recommended - it has a superb range of meat, cheeses and artisan breads, all locally produced.Mr Paul Billowes - 30th August 2017
The owners even provided dog beds if needed. They had thought of every little thing to make our holiday perfect - thank you Mr Jane Aston - 24th July 2017
Please use my comments detailed above and I also want to say how loyal your staff are who have gone that step further to accommodate us at short notice. The first year we rang after an unexpected bereavement and your staff helped find us a special place within just a few days. This year we took advantage of being repeat guests at Cowslip Cottage, only to be then invited to a surprise party on the Isle Of Man. Your staff were so helpful and moved the week we had originally booked, to our choice of future dates available. I would not need to go to any other holiday company as Cornish Horizons is 10/10 for us. Mrs A Johnson - 10th July 2017
Absolutely delightful. Mrs A Johnson - 15th June 2017
Great location and we'll equipt. Would re-visit and recommend.Mrs Tara Harding - 23rd April 2017
Lovely clean, attractively furnished, comfortable cottage with beautiful views and in a great location. Everything you might need or want provided.Mrs G Wilson - 9th October 2016
Cornish Horizons were very professional and helpful. Cowslip Cottage was delightful, extremely comfortable and well equipped. There's plenty to see and do in the immediate area - excellent local beaches and coastal walks within a few minutes drive and there are great places to eat in Padstow.Mrs S Bland - 13th June 2016
Lovely property, wonderful week in Padstow!Mr S Spencer - 1st November 2015
All aspects of our stay were handled very well. Thank you.Mr Mike Livock - 19th October 2015
Cowslip Cottage is a comfortable well equipped home from home holiday cottage. The kitchen utensils were plentiful and all good brand makes. The beds and bedding were lovely clean and comfortable. The house is situated on a nice quiet residential area with a convenient local Tescos 5 minutes' walk away. Padstow 10 minute walk. An ideal base for beautiful cornish beaches and coastal walks. Also the cottage and the area are very dog friendly. I would use Cowslip cottage again and have recommended it to a friend just this week.Mrs Janice Mcdermott - 2nd October 2015
Superb level of equipment and utensils- all of an excellent quality. A very nice touch to have beach chairs, windbreaks as well as the barbecue.Mrs B - 24th August 2015
Fantastic cottage which is very conveniently located for walking into Padstow. This was our first family holiday with our dog and it was perfect. The accommodation was of a very high standard and literally had everything we needed- we could have arrived with nothing for the dog and would have been fine for the week. I would definitely like to book again next Easter and have already recommended you to friends.Mrs R - 11th May 2015
This cottage fully deserves it's 4 star category, compared to others we have stayed in which also had 4 stars, but not a patch on Cowslip Cottage! It's the attention to detail here which makes it so nice, also a proper size double bed! The utility room is a luxury too.Mrs W - 17th April 2015
