    “Too good to be true?”
    When I first contacted Sophie about the booking I was a little worried as she seemed too nice to be true, the pictures of the location, the walks in the area and the talk of "Large fish" in the tidal stream were all a bit unbelievable.....all were real!....Sophie couldn't have been more helpful, she answered my many questions before we got there, the location couldn't have been better. ...
    When I first contacted Sophie about the booking I was a little worried as she seemed too nice to be true, the pictures of the location, the walks in the area and the talk of "Large fish" in the tidal stream were all a bit unbelievable.....all were real!....Sophie couldn't have been more helpful, she answered my many questions before we got there, the location couldn't have been better. Myself partner and princess walked to Padstow, both ways, good water proof walking shoes are needed as there are small streams and tidal mud to get through but it is well worth it. (if you don't fancy the walk back just catch the 11A bus from behind Rick Steins chip shop by the carpark, it's £2 each) we sampled many meals in the local pubs of Padstow and couldn't have felt more welcome. The fishing just off the patio was superb, mullet are tricky to catch but I think it makes it more worthwhile when you hook one....the main obstacle are the swans.....no trotting or ground baiting. One word of warning about the cottage, there are spiral stairs to the bedroom and bathroom.....you need to be agile to get up them, the downstairs bedroom has a large bathroom if you didn't fancy the climb. There are 4 restaurants/pubs within 2miles of the cottage, the Mill which is the closest wasn't open the twice we went there....the sign said open but the owners gave their excuses, we went to the Ring O Bells just up the road, lovely food and lovely people. All in all a lovely place to say run by lovely people.... we will look forward to going back there

About the location

LITTLE PETHERICK

Padstow 2.5 miles; Wadebridge 4.5 miles.

Set in a wooded valley at the head of a tidal creek running up from the Camel Estuary, this tiny hamlet of Cornish stone houses exudes peace and tranquillity. Footpaths lead in all directions - across the fields, over to the next village, down the creek to the estuary and along the water’s edge to Padstow. Wildlife, waterfowl and the sights and sounds of the country are everywhere, and yet, just ten minutes by car, and you are in Padstow with its winding streets, quaint fishing harbour, excellent pubs and top quality restaurants. The excellent surfing beaches of Harlyn and Constantine are ideal for safe family fun, and Constatine 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 and the Camel Trail to walk or cycle. The fabulous Eden Project is just fifteen miles away.
