Charming character property in the heart of town and the weather was good - what more could we want - always love Padstow and Cornwall

Mr David S,

Beautiful little cottage, a few steps away the sea, shops and restaurants. We had a great time and shall return as soon as possible. Many thanks.

Beste B,

A cosy cottage in a popular town. Many walks both in the immediate area and within a short drive. Cornish Horizons were very easy to book through and have a bright, easy to use website. Will definitely look at Cornish Horizons website next time we wish to holiday in Cornwall.

Mrs Carol G,


Padstow is arguably now one of the best-known of Cornwall's holiday destinations- a working harbour still retaining the character of the fishing industry while also managing to reinvent itself as a modern holiday destination. Padstow has so much to offer the discerning holiday maker, with several beaches along the Camel Estuary, where you can also have a go at a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a variety of boat trips such as fishing excursions, speedboat rides, sea-life safaris and the ever popular Jubilee Queen. You can indulge your passion for food at an excellent selection of restaurants in the town, which is now the base for a number of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth.  If you're looking for more active pursuits, you can cycle the Camel Trail, the route of the old railway line running between Padstow and Bodmin.  If walking is more your thing, there are many walking trails and routes waiting to be discovered, and if you're bringing a dog, there are plenty of dog-friendly places to explore. Gaining popularity in recent years is the Padstow Christmas Festival, now spread over four days, with cookery demonstrations, food and craft market, and entertainment.
