Crunching up the gravel path way, stopping out front to savour the view, and opening the door into a space that instantly lifts your mood – you’ve arrived at 2 Oak Terrace.
Set just off the main street in Padstow, yet tucked away from the crowds, 2 Oak Terrace is your harbourside sanctuary. Fire up the range in the large kitchen diner, while you head for a moment of calm in the south-facing front garden. Step along the winding path that leads from your front garden down to the town centre and its treasure trove of independent boutiques and top-notch restaurants.
And when you’ve had your fill head back to spark up the log burner, warming toes and paws after long days of adventuring. At 2 Oak Terrace, you’ll see a whole new side to Padstow…
ACCESS: Access to 2 Oak Terrace is gained from St Saviours Lane. From here there is a sloping foot path which leads from a private gate to Oak Terrace. Number 2 is the middle house along the path at the back of the houses. There are 7 slate steps down onto a slate courtyard with access to the back doors. Care should be taken on slate in wet weather as it can be greasy.
GROUND FLOOR: 1 step down through the French doors takes you into the kitchen/dining room which leads into the utility room and then 2 steps up to the shower room with shower, washbasin and WC. A door from the utility room leads directly over a threshold out to the courtyard. From the hallway the front door opens onto 4 steps down to a paved seating area and front garden.
FIRST FLOOR: There are 11 stairs from the hallway to the first floor with a kingsized master bedroom ( 6ft ) bed and a bunk bedroom ( 3ft bed ). There is access from the landing and also the master bedroom into the family bathroom with bath, separate shower, washbasin and WC.
SECOND FLOOR: There are 11 stairs to the top floor and, as these are quite steep, care should be taken. They are not recommended for very young children, the elderly or infirm. On the top floor there is a twin room with 2 single beds ( 3ft bed ) and a bedroom with a double bed 4’ 6” bed ) with access from one side of the bed only (to sleep 1 or 2 adults, depending on choice!). Both the twin and the double bedroom have one slightly sloping eave. The bathroom with shower, washbasin and WC is accessed directly from either bedroom.
OUTSIDE ACCESS: The sloping path continues past the side of the terrace where you turn left across the front of 1 Oak Terrace to gain access to the front door and tiered garden. There is a slate paved patio area across the front of the house with table and seating. There are 4 steps up to the front door. The mature garden is tiered into 3 lawned areas and a slate paved seating area, with small steps in between each level.
Between the gardens of 1 Oak Terrace and 2 Oak Terrace, and along the west side of the garden of 1 Oak Terrace, are narrow paths leading down to Old Town down 9 concrete steps, left along a path and down another 12 concrete steps, through a private gate and down a further 3 steps onto the pavement of Duke Street. (These paths are uneven in places and quite narrow so please take care, especially in the dark ? torches are provided in the house).

Whether you’re eating breakfast at the dining table with the estuary stretching away behind you, looking over the stunning garden from the plush double bed, or having a glass of wine on the decking and watching the boats amble up the estuary – there’s a view at every turn in Sea Sharp.
Peels of laughter ring out across the stretching lawn. Sunlight pours through kitchen skylights over lazy lunches around the table. Bare feet meet cool stone flooring while picnics are prepped on the breakfast bar. Holiday a cut above at The Lookout.
