Pippa and Hugo’s large Victorian house is set in a tiny hamlet on the outskirts of Padstow, surrounded by fields and looking down towards the sea. You’re welcomed into their home and have a key to come and go as you please.
The bedrooms are set off a large hallway upstairs; help yourself to a drink from the ‘tipple table’ and retreat to the comfort of your room. Every home comfort has been thought of, from a generous tea tray and coffee maker to fresh butter biscuits, hot water bottles, a mini fridge with fresh milk and water and gorgeous Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.
Come down to lavish breakfasts around the kitchen table – Hugo and Pippa are both ex-restauranteurs so know their stuff, and the menu includes pretty much anything you could think of from cereals, porridge and pastries to a full Cornish. Wander into Padstow, half a mile down the road, for good delis, restaurants and cafes; there are wineries, cycle routes and great beaches nearby too.
