Harbour Holidays

From the slate floors that bring Cornish charm to every footstep, to the traditional features in every corner, uncover a gem of a holiday at Hidden Cottage.

Speckled shadows across granite worktops. Wet footprints across tiled mosaic floors. Blinds opening to the winding backstreets of the town. Hidden Cottage, the old Padstow jail, is a true holiday find.

Light floods from skylights across the country kitchen, while slate floors lead across dining spaces into roomy yet cosy living areas. Pop a cork in the outdoor seating area, stick a tune on the stereo, or take to the maple dining table to hatch holiday plans over a lively dinner. Quality and detail spread upstairs across two comfortable and stylish bedrooms. Run a bubble-filled bath before wrapping yourself in a heated towel fresh from the rail. Bliss.
