Your Cornish seaside adventure awaits you at this perfectly positioned cottage, a short walk from the town centre of Padstow with its abundance of cafe's, pubs, restaurants and galleries to choose from.  Hop on the passenger ferry to Rock and stroll along to Daymer at low tide or sit and build sand castles and enjoy watching the boats sail by.  This lovingly renovated family home will not only be a great base for your holiday, it also provides a warm and cosy home from home atmosphere with stylish furnishings and an electric log burner effect fire.  It also boasts outdoor furniture and a BBQ to enable you to dine al fresco and you can wake up to glimpses of boats on the estuary and have a coffee in the south facing front courtyard.

Ship Shape is a compact, well equipped cottage in a fantastic location. We loved being able to walk into the town in the evening to try out different eateries. It meant no stress driving round the country lanes in the dark. The cottage was exceptionally clean and the bedrooms were very comfortable. We had a great week and would definitely stay there again.

Miss Kelly F,

The cottage was just right.

Mr Ian M,


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.
