  • “Very well equipped, clean, warm and comfortable house.”

    The garden is small but well fenced - however the fence is quite low and anyone with a sight hound would need to be watchful when letting them out. The back of the house is close to the main road into Padstow but I didn’t find it at all noisy. ...

    The garden is small but well fenced - however the fence is quite low and anyone with a sight hound would need to be watchful when letting them out. The back of the house is close to the main road into Padstow but I didn’t find it at all noisy. I do think that a little more attention needs to be paid to maintenance of the property. The front door key is very temperamental and difficult to lock/unlock. There was one lightbulb in the main lounge light not working on arrival and a second blew whilst I was there, with no spares. On the third day the previously working electric fire suddenly stopped working and on another night the fuse box tripped. My main problem with the house was the drive and parking. The advert states that you approach via a double width drive which you do. Unfortunately it doesn’t say that this then narrows to an awkwardly angled very narrow drive with unforgiving stone walls on one side. If you have a large or a long estate car as I have it is difficult to reverse up or, if you drive in forwards turning your car around in the available space is also very awkward. That said I felt comfortable, warm and safe and would definitely stay again.

About the location


Harlyn 2.9 miles; Constantine Bay 4.2 miles; Polzeath 15.6 miles.

Padstow is situated at the head of the Camel Cycle Trail and is a fantastic base for exploring the South West Coastal Path which opens up routes to beautiful Cornish countryside. This delightful fishing port is surrounded by sandy beaches and offers many opportunities to taste the locally sourced produce in celebrity owned establishments. Padstow has something for everyone with watersports, walking, cycling and fishing, you can even take a trip on a local fisherman’s boat! The excellent surfing beaches of Harlyn and Constantine are ideal for safe family fun, and Constantine Bay is also home to a golf course, just a few miles away, while a passenger ferry across the river from Padstow to Rock takes you to the beach at Daymer Bay. Just around the corner toward Pentire Head is the surfing paradise at Polzeath, and when the beach no longer calls, there’s a golf course nearby, several stately homes and gardens to visit. The fabulous Eden Project is just over twenty miles away.
