Delightful cottage in perfect position
We loved Holly Cottage from the moment we arrived. Lots of character and plenty of space for the 4 of us to spread out. Well equipped for we who like to cook on holiday😊. An easy stroll down the hill to the town. Great to have a parking space, not a big space but adequate for Octavia estate. Even on a very busy holiday week, the cottage was quiet and peaceful with a lovely garden.
The only downsides were that all of the beds are hard which everyone found difficult. We improvised by putting spare quilts under mattress covers. Unfortunately slatted beds are hard but with modern mattress can be made comfortable! Would benefit from upgrading as it’s hard going on hols to not sleep well.
Unfortunately we arrived in cold and windy weather. The storage heaters were on so nice and cozy
Having said that we loved our stay and would certainly return but probably armed with mattress toppers.
Thank you for your review. Your comments have prompted us to fit thick cozy toppers to the beds.We look forward to your return visit to Holly Cottage.
This is a lovely house in a wonderful location, being close to the harbour (less than five minutes walk) on a quiet road. Our party consisted of four adults and two children - one aged 3yrs and the other 7 months - and the accommodation was spacious and clean, with the kitchen/dining area and small tv lounge off providing more than enough room for us all to congregate - even with two further adult guests during a couple of evenings. The house itself is well equipped and we felt we had everything we needed for our week's stay. Parking was not a problem, with the allocated space easily accommodating my BMW X3 with space to spare. We would highly recommend this property and we will be returning.
Great cottage, perfect stay
Just got back from staying in Holly Cottage for a week. Highly recommended! The instructions we received beforehand were comprehensive and very informative. The cottage was as described, clean and everything worked. The kitchen is very well equipped with appliances and utensils. It, the dining area and adjacent informal lounge/TV area quickly became the core area where we spent much of our time. The lounge is also very usable. Upstairs is very spacious and well presented. The whole house was also easy to keep clean and tidy. Outside, the parking area is spacious and easy to use - just reverse into it, no problems. As for location, it's an easy walk down to the harbour and all the amenities that Padstow has to offer. Great to pop down for very nice croissants for breakfast, pasties (of course)a multitude of restaurants, crabbing, pubs, shops, etc. The location is also a great base for the many walks around Padstow. Delightful!
Can't recommend enough!
Holly Cottage is a very well equipped, spacious and welcoming cottage that is easy to use, comfortable and perfectly located. We particularly liked the personal touches such as the collections of jugs and tea pots and the everything-you-need kitchen. The adjacent 'snug' with 2nd screen was perfect for us. We like to cook and natter as a family. We also prefer locations where we can park and walk the rest of the holiday. Holly Cottage is minutes from Padstow town center and water front and beaches and has a parking space at the rear with rear access. This made walking everywhere very easy and walking the dog back into the property easy, as well as packing to leave. The cottage has lovely furniture, and is kept very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again soon.
Just back from Holly Cottage in Padstow. No ice or snow down there! This cottage is a great find, ideal for a family - good to have the two separate tv/dvd areas. Excellent accommodation, especially the kitchen and with private parking space. Will go again.
Great house and location
Arrived at Holly cottage to find a great house with easy access to great walks, the beach and pubs and restaurants. The house is a good size for our party of six, 4 adults and 2 teens, the snug with an extra TV was ideal, and the kitchen was well equipped, although the 2 single bedrooms could do with wardrobes and some more storage for coats and boots would be good! As another review stated in Aug 13 the house could still do with a good clean, cobwebs everywhere, and dust on top of light shades and pictures etc
Thank you for your complementary comments regarding the location, access and accommodation / size of our cottage. We were very sorry to hear about the housekeeping issue, which has now been resolved. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, along with the suggestion for more storage space in the single bedrooms.
