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.

Very happy with the property for a short break for two plus small dog. Mr Robert Sudderick - 29th November 2017
LOVED IT !!! Gorgeous little cottage in a wonderful location - perfect for ourselves and the hound to come and relax for a week. Very well appointed cottage - we stayed last year and loved it - have to say it's been improved since our last visit with some lovely cosmetic touches such as blinds/soft furnishings. So very dog-friendly - our hound was welcomed almost more than we were in some places! And the restaurant standard locally is fantastic.Mrs Sharon Trigg - 2nd October 2017
Well located property. Very clean and well equipped. WiFi was great to have Mrs Joanne Brown - 4th September 2017

Fantastic New Year break. Very well equipped cottage, warm and cosy. Perfect location. Many Thanks.Mrs D - 23rd March 2015
Padstow is a dog owners dream, the cottage was excellent and the Cornish people are friendly and welcoming. Great walks from your dog step and plenty of dog drinking bowls outside shops- lots of dog waste bins also which is a god send! We have had a fantastic time and Cornish Horizons will definitely be a contender for next year- a great local company.Mrs B - 28th October 2014
