Make a Padstow cottage your home away from home

Situated at the mouth of the River Camel near the North Cornwall coastline, Padstow is a wonderful little fishing town that is surrounded by a wealth of attractions. Close to beaches, a variety of outdoor trails, and plenty of family-friendly points of interest, Padstow is a year-round holiday destination that attracts couples, outdoor enthusiasts, and families alike. In recent years, greatly due to the fame of Rick Stein and his restaurants, Padstow has developed a reputation as a foodie destination. The Stein empire runs five establishments in Padstow itself but it has also inspired the arrival of other top-class dining establishments in the town and surrounding villages, including Paul Ainsworth’s No.6.

HomeAway has a wide selection of holiday cottages in Padstow available for rent. Offering the best of the countryside and coast, Padstow holiday accommodation ranges from luxury to budget-friendly and provides a good alternative to comparable rentals in surfer’s favourite Newquay. Most cottages have one to three bedrooms and start at less than £300 per week. Fully furnished and well appointed, holidaymakers can select a cottage with any range of amenities, including proximity to the beach, access to walking trails, horse riding facilities, and more.

Things to do

-Beach: There are no fewer than eight beaches at Padstow. Harlyn Bay Beach is one of the best family-friendly beaches in the area and is characterised by a sweeping strip of sand and shallow waters. Other great beaches for sunbathing and swimming are Porthcothan Bay Beach and Treyarnon Bay Beach. A seasonal dog ban from Easter to October is in place on many beaches in North Cornwall.

-Golf: Padstow holiday cottages sit between several prominent coastal golf courses. Trevose Golf and Country Club is just a few miles outside of town and caters to visitors. There are two beautiful courses at Trevose, a championship course and a headland course. Across the River Camel is St. Enodoc Golf Club. Rated 99th in the world by Golf Digest, the church course at St. Enodoc features undulating terrain and breathtaking coastal views.

-Outdoor activities: Located right on the River Camel, visitors staying in a holiday cottage in Padstow or holiday homes in Wadebridge can enjoy easy access to the Camel Trail. The popular recreational trail originates in Padstow and journeys to Poley's Bridge via Wadebridge. Open to walkers, cyclists, and horse riders, the trail is a great spot for bird watching and runs along the scenic Camel Estuary. Another excellent trail in the region is the South West Coast Path, which is a wonderful place to explore.

-Family attractions: Cornwall’s Crealy Adventure Park is a nice place to take kids and is just a few miles from Padstow. With plenty of kid-friendly rides and activities, it makes for a great day out. Closer to town, the National Lobster Hatchery has a wonderful visitor centre that children will enjoy.

Perfectly placed just a stones throw from the centre of the beautiful harbour. Would definitely like to stay here again if we revisited. Nice touch as well with the scones and a local beer waiting for us on arrival, thanks.
