Cottage Holiday Accommodation in the Heart of Padstow

Padstow cottages

Padstow cottages

Harbour Holidays has hundreds of self catering holiday accommodation properties throughout town, most of which are located within walking distance of Padstow’s many points of interests.

If you’re visiting with your family for a much-needed holiday or perhaps even a long-awaited reunion, a large Cornish house will be suitable, especially one that is located along roads that offer you a stunning glimpse of the Camel Estuary and coastline such as Treverbyn Road or even Dennis Road. These are large and spacious and provide you with the much-needed freedom of movement that you and your family require. These are perfect for large groups of people, too.

If you’re coming here as a small group of friends, you’ll find smaller houses and apartments around the harbour and on Strand St, St. Edmund’s Lane, Avery’s Row and Mill Road. These streets are essentially the heart of Padstow where many of its famous hangouts are located.

For the lovers, honeymooners, and couples, smaller cottages are simply a must since you’ve got all the amenities of a very homey accommodation plus the complete privacy of your own personal enclave in a really convenient package. Church and High Streets as well as Fentonluna Lane get you near the heart of the town, although there are also superb beach and countryside properties nearby.

Popular North Cornwall Holiday Destination


It’s easy to see why Padstow is popular holiday destination on the North Cornwall coast. This historic fishing town is centred around a beautiful harbour, on the banks of the Camel Estuary. It is a lovely holiday destination with shops, pubs, art galleries, restaurants and stunning beaches nearby.

It is located mid-way down the north coast, so it’s easy to get here and makes a good base to explore the rest of Cornwall. The town is close to other popular towns and villages such as Wadebridge, Trevone, Rock, Polzeath, Port Issac, St Merryn and Constantine. It’s also only a short drive to other Cornish destinations such as Newquay, St Ives, Penzance and the city of Truro.

Padstow has plenty of famous restaurants and foodie joints, the most popular of which is Rick Stein’s The Seafood Restaurant on Riverside. His Stein’s Fish & Chips or Stein’s Deli further south towards Ben’s Crib Box Café are worth a visit. People across the British Isles travel all the way to Padstow just to sample the famed chef’s dishes. But Stein and his dishes are not the only foodie magnets in town. You’ve got signature chef Paul Ainsworth and his bread and butter pudding, too along Middle St., and just next to another of Stein’s establishments, The Café.

If shopping is your thing there are a lot of shops in the downtown area along Duke, Market Strand, and Strand Streets. Many of these sell arts, crafts and souvenirs. But there are also some quality clothes shops, and those selling food and drink. Quality local shops include the Shell Shop, Bin Two, and Rocky Point on Strand Street or Abbey Bears on Market Strand. Saltrock Padstow is worth your visit on Duke Street for essential beach gear. Need some medication or toiletries? Boots the Chemists is just right along B3276 opposite the intersection with Market Strand.
