  • "This is a pretty little cottage in the heart of Padstow, very handy for all the wonderful restaurants that are on offer locally."

    The cottage has been beautifully renovated and has everything you need for a short stay. We were a party of 3 adults so space was a little tight, this property is better suited for 2 and perhaps one child. Unfortunately we were given the wrong code for the cottage so after several frustrating attempts to enter we had to ring the owner; not ideal after a 7 hour drive! Would suggest more seating needed in the shared courtyard.

    Hello Guest, thanks for your comments. We are glad you got in once we reconfirmed the code over the phone. Property Owner

    Cottage was lovely but a bit to compact for us Bathroom very small main bed small No where to get ready do hair etc A very dark cottage

    Dear Guest I am sorry that you found Lantern Cottage a little small, it is however a very old and historic cottage modernised for comfort. The cottage is described as compact and the beds are listed correctly. The cottage does have space in the first and second bedrooms we are disappointed it never meet your expectation other guests have given very positive responses. Property Owner

  • "What an amazing place to stay in Padstow!"

    The cottage is central to the shops, bars and restaurants that Padstow is renowned for yet due to the courtyard location the peace and tranquility it offers was just a perfect mix. The cottage itself was of an incredibly high standard with everything you could ever want or need being present. The little touches such as tea, coffee and biscuits being an added bonus waiting for us on arrival. Loved the keyless system of entry and the beautiful property. Would suit a couple, a small family or as with our trip friends on a foodie weekend. The recommendations regarding parking and places to visit were perfect. I honestly cannot find a single fault to our stay there and know this will not be our only visit.

    Sarah, thank you for the feedback, we are pleased that you liked the Cottage. We appreciate the time taken to provide the positive comments. We hope to have you back visiting us in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean and everything you could possibly need."

    2 minute walk to the harbour, shops and restaurants. Excellent showers and very comfy beds. We parked at the harbour for the week as the steps to the links would’ve been problematic. £50 for the week which I thought good value- might be a bit more difficult in the summer months though as it’s always busy. Steins cafe just around the corner for a lovely relaxed supper. My only query would be if it were necessary to have the heating on so much- it was very warm and we were out of the cottage every day. We had to leave the front door open on arriving back to cool it down!

    Many thanks for the feedback and we are glad you liked the property and Padstow. We have adjusted the heating to lower the temperatures in line with the recomendations. Property Owner

    The most peaceful place we have stayed in Padstow. We will definitely stay again and I have already recommended to 2 different friends. The shower was powerful and hot. The bed so comfy it was only the fact that Padstow was on the doorstep that we got out of the bed! And the sofa was comfy too. The cottage had everything we needed for the week. And I cooked on 2 occasions and I am fussy about a kitchen. I must admit I had hob and oven envy! We will definitely be back to make more amazing memories. Thank you x Jackie & Sam White. Essex

  • "Loved the cottage."

    Clearly a huge investment has been made. The standard of finish and overall comfort of the cottage is superb. Would say that locating the property in Duke St was not easy. No number 38 on the property) which made it difficult when there was traffic coming down Duke Street behind us. People didn't appreciate us stopping. Also, the central heating was very hot when we arrived but had to spend the first 20 minutes on the phone to the agency to ask how we could alter it. The system is remotely controlled so assumed it was turned off, but when it got a little chilly the next day, we didn't have the means to turn it back on, other than with another phone call. Can a ceiling of temperature be put on it and then the occupier be allowed to manually alter it up and down from there perhaps? Padstow is a wonderful place to visit and relax and Lantern Cottage is one of the best properties you'll find there. Caffe Rojano and the Cherry Tree Cafe were one of our favourites. If those couple of points about the cottage could be addressed, I'm sure it would make life a bit easier for future visitors. Thank you :-)

    Thank you for the comments made on the Cottage we are glad you liked the property, we were careful in keeping the cottage character during the renovations. We have checked with our maintenance organisation that a number is on the door it may have been removed and not replaced during decorating works but the number is on the entrance panel now. We had increased the temperature recently in the cold snap and have made the heating more variable as per your request. Very best Wishes. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful place."

    Good access for a few stretches of the South West Coast path, with buses en route. We felt very safe as access is through a bigger building. Thank you for the lovely biscuits and tea/coffee. As it was November we probably spent more time in the cottage than we would in warmer months, even though the weather was mild, the temperature rarely reached the pre-set 21 degrees. Perhaps it needs to be on for longer in the colder months to be effective. Everything else was perfect!! Thank you.

    While we were notified of this in advance and blankets and throws are provided, it would have been preferable to have the option of switching the heating on rather than it being controlled 100% remotely. Other than that, the cottage is beautifully appointed and perfectly located - we would definitely book it again.
