Loved Aga cooking. Well equipped stunning stone barn conversion. Amazing walks direct from barn or 5 mins in car to Padstow. My boys loved play barn. Would love to come back

Northern Lights provided a great base with what felt like a secret/private footpath to the beach from the tucked away location of the house. There are great pubs and walks in all directions as well as plenty of space at Northern Lights to chill out after a long day. We were big fans of the hot outdoor shower and the rear patio for evening BBQ's and the front balcony is a lovely setting for al fresco breakfasts. In general a very comfortable house with a welcoming seaside feel to it. We will be back!
