PADSTOWHOUSE is great for that perfect English summer holiday or cosy winter break by the fire looking out on the estuary. Suitable for adults and kids, rated 4*GOLD and Family and Pet friendly by the Tourist Board. Padstow House is a large six double bedroomed house recently modernised for 12 in comfort. We can offer two twin rooms and four doubles, or one twin and 5 doubles, and on request may provide additional beds for children. More information can be found at Padstowhousedotcodotuk.
The house is situated in a quiet residential area and is therefore not suitable for stag or hen parties, or large groups who want to party hard all night! It is perfect for family groups, ramblers or mums wanting a relaxing few days to re-charge and spoil themselves with some good meals and down-time (we can provide details of nearby spa treatments).
Just 300 metres from the harbour, restaurants and inns but in a quiet location with private parking for 4 cars.
There are 4 receptions - a dining room with oak table seating 12, a lounge with amazing views and 3 sofas and marble surround fire, another sitting room for reading and a further TV/games room both with BT TV freeview and hard drive recorders. We also have BOSE wireless speaker so you can hook up your iphone or tablet and listen to your own sounds or maybe read one of our many novels or local guide books.
Three of the double bedrooms have the beautiful estuary views and the two front first floor bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms with basins and wcs. On the top floor is a new bathroom serving the twin and double room there. On the first floor is a family bathroom with large bath and a walk in shower, wc and basin, and one rear bedroom has a newly refurbished en-suite shower, basin and wc.
The decked patio area to the rear with table and seating for up to 12, is a sheltered suntrap from mid-morning, with a Weber gas barbeque.
At the front of the house, enjoy morning views with your coffee and soak up the sun.
At PadstowHouse we are constantly making improvements to the property to make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible. We can help get your holiday off to a great start by putting away your shopping if you arrange a supermarket on-line shop to be delivered on arrival day (liaise with our housekeeper on timings). Deliveries can be made with Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury's and maybe more - it is improving all the time!
All our bedrooms are light, large and spacious and have a hair-dryer and mirrors in useful places to help you when you are getting ready!
The modern kitchen (refurbished 2016) has all modern appliances including a microwave oven grill, and a large steam combo oven, an induction hob, large fridge and an undercounted freezer. We've selected a good range of cooking and kitchen utensils, a dishwasher and the all important wine fridge. there is a breakfast bar with some bar stools and a sofa so you can chat to friends and family as you cook.
Outside is a separate utility with sink, washing machine and tumble drier.
Family friendly, pet friendly - secure rear garden. There is a hose pipe with spray for getting sand off feet and pets.
Our house has been used by all generations of families getting together to celebrate a special occasion - from a wedding to significant birthday. There is space for everyone to dine together and sit together in the main living room and a separate TV room is perfect for the kids or if you need a bit of peace and quiet to read and contemplate the view.
The house has also been used by companies for management and team building weekends, and we can help to organise activities such as kayak expeditions, surf lessons, even wine tasting or a visit to the vineyard via a bike ride on the Camel trail.
It's not just for the summer - many people use PadstowHouse as a base for an off-season walking holidays on the South West Coastal Path or the Saints' Way, as a base when doing a cookery course at Rick Stein's cookery school, and of course for a culinary tour of the wonderful nearby restaurants - not just Steins, but Paul Ainsworth's Number 6 and Rojano's and Nathan Outlaw at St Enedocs, plus Jamie Oliver's 15 Cornwall. We will allow for smaller groups to book - even couples - in off-peak times for reduced rates. This can be a great alternative to a hotel bedroom as you get all the space downstairs to use, bring your dog, and can of course make meals if you don't want to go out to eat every night.
For serious walkers there are lots of coast and country walks including the Cornish coastal path and Saints Way across the peninsula to Fowey. A 2 mile walk to Stepper point along the cliff path takes you to the open sea providing amazing views. We often go for a 10 mile hike from Padstow to Treyarnon and organise a taxi home, or go by bus and walk back. Another favourite is to take the ferry across to Rock and walk to Polzeath via Daymer Bay for lunch.
We are on bike route 32 and have an external laundry room where you can lock up expensive bikes if you wish.
Our local housekeeper is nearby and very helpful if you need more information, baby-sitting, dog-sitting or putting away your shopping on the day of arrival. We have the numbers of surf instructors, restaurants, horse riding and vets - all in the brochure sent on booking.
We have been rated as family and pet friendly by the Tourist Board, and can help with any requirements such as cot hire, high chairs and even push-chair hire.
Because we are in a quiet and peaceful location, we do ask that guests help keep the area calm, and therefore request that noise is kept to a minimum after 11 pm to respect our neighbours and their bed and breakfast guests. For this reason, we don't consider the house suitable for noisy parties.
