Away from Padstow's bustle but harbour, coast and eateries are a wander away. A country-cottage kitchen, and wonderfully quiet garden await

Read guest comments

This is the perfect peaceful retreat from nearby bustling Padstow and its happy miscellany of shops, pubs and harbourside. In days gone by, girls paid one penny to go to school here, and all of the original features (sloping walls, exposed beams) have been kept and add to the charm. This was a much-loved family holiday home, and it still keeps its cosy, lived-in feel. The country-cottage kitchen has a solid wooden table, tiled floors and everything you'd need to feed famished explorers. There's a super wood-burner in the sitting room, and a big window that beautifully frames the view to the wonderfully peaceful and secluded garden. You need not despair of wet and wild days – there's a TV, DVDs and stacks of books to delve in to. Bedrooms come in different shapes and sizes. One has an iron bedstead and an old fireplace, another gets the view, all have good mattresses and share a brand new bathroom across the landing. Walkers, surfers and paddlers will be in heaven. The famous Obby Oss procession passes the front door, and foodies couldn't be closer to the Stein trail. A happy spot for couples and families. Rare off-road parking too!

  • This year we celebrate 20yrs of welcoming all our lovely visitors to these very special cottages - as they say - location is everything!
  • Off-road parking for 1 car. Park up on arrival, & indulge in the pure pleasure of a leisurely stroll down pretty streets to the harbour, shops & all of Padstow's excellent restaurants -just 3 mins away!
  • The cottages formed the original old Padstow School in the 1800/1900's, and retain many of the quirky, historical features, & but wonderfully comfortable, peaceful & relaxing. .
  • If walking is your thing - 5 mins from the cottage is the Coastal Path south - or - take the ferry across the estuary & walk to St.Enedoc church, or the Coastal path north. Stunning views whichever route you take!
  • A 5 min. wander takes you to local beaches along the estuary - a short trip, gives you a choice of 5 other beaches along the coast. Hire a bike & ride the Camel Trail with amazing birdlife & views, to Wadebridge & if you like a challenge - onto Bodmin!
  • Padstow is the perfect base to explore the rest of Cornwall - no where is too far away - and at the end of a busy day exploring, back to the cottage to enjoy a glass of wine in the peace & tranquillity of School Cottage garden!
