A surfers paradise, only seconds from the beach with a pub serving local ales and food served on the terrace.

These converted holiday cottages have been furnished to a very good standard and sit in a secluded peaceful courtyard, only seconds from Porth beach with its beachfront pub serving local ales and home-cooked food on the terrace.

It has many attractions which include a multi-screen cinema, leisure centre, golf course, pitch and putt course, parks and gardens.

With its beaches comes surf and surf schools, so you can try your hand at this exhilarating sport. Visit many of the local attractions, such as Watergate Bay which is home to Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’ restaurant and the fishing village of Padstow, with its many excellent restaurants. Discover the flat walking and cycling trail that links Padstow to Wadebridge and hugs the shoreline of the beautiful Camel estuary all the way along. Bike hire is available at both ends of this stunning trail.

    We had a perfect stay here! The owners are really friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is idyllic with the beach less than a minute away, and scenic walks in all directions. We travelled as a couple with our 10 month old daughter and the cottage was ideal for us; plenty of space for our baby to crawl around, as well as separate space for her to sleep and us to relax and have dinner. Highly recommend - we will be back!

    This is the second time we have stayed here for Christmas and it was just as amazing as we remembered. The cottage is impeccable throughout and every little detail has been thought of. The technology and equipment is fantastic and the decor is beautiful. The underfloor heating and the added extras are amazing. The hosts were delightful with a thoughtful hamper given to us when we arrived. And then this is all topped off by the wonderful location next to the beach. We will definitely be back again!

    Fabulous cottage in a great location, just seconds from the beach. Well appointed interior. The owner was very welcoming and provided a lovely 'welcome pack'. Would definitely consider visiting again.

    We received a lovely warm welcome from Tracey including some yummy local scones. The cottage is lovely - spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. It's in a great location, really close to a family friendly beach and a short distance to lovely Watergate Bay and Padstow. Sadly we didn't have the best weather the week we stayed, so a great excuse to book again soon.

    Owner let us park our car there early and let us in to the cottage early. They installed a stair gate for us and bed guards for our toddler. They provided a lovely welcome pack with some essentials.

    Lovely warm welcone by the host who showed us round, beautifully decorated, a real home from home. A minute's walk to Porth beach which was ideal for us with a 9 year old, & spent time there every day. Comfy beds. Would be happy to stay there again.
