Little Petherick is a small village located in a green valley between Padstow and Wadebridge. With its historic 14th century church and old granite cottages, this is a distinctly Cornish village and a great base for a holiday in North Cornwall. The Saints Way walking path passes through, and follows Little Petherick Creek into Padstow. The Old Mill Bistro serves delicious food and is just a short walk away.

The town of Padstow is an immensely popular harbour town and is a firm favourite with visitors, with much to offer. Padstow is an historic fishing port with a maze of picturesque narrow streets of stone, colour-washed and slate cottages and a pretty working harbour. Its a great place for people watching, grabbing a proper pasty, or you can try your luck with a spot of crabbing from the quayside.

There are many activities to enjoy in this area, such as regular boat trips, scenic walks along beautiful coastal paths, crazy golf or even a spot of fishing. You can also take the foot ferry to Rock and enjoy a walk along Daymer Bay, or climb to the top of Brea Hill to take in the stunning views.

If you prefer you can also just chill out, look around the shops and art galleries, or treat your taste buds in the fantastic range of eateries. In recent years, Padstow has gained a reputation as a foodie’s heaven, with many excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs.  The rise of celebrity chefs such as Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth has helped this along.

The "7 bays for 7 days" area is perfect for a "bucket and spade" family friendly holiday. The Seven Bays are Porthcothan Bay (nearest to Newquay), Treyarnon, Constantine Bay, Booby's Bay, Mother Ivey's Bay, Harlyn and then Trevone Bay (which is nearest to Padstow). Don't miss Harlyn Surf School who offer paddleboarding, coasteering, kayaking as well as surfing and equipment hire.

Besides the glorious bays, there are many rural and coastal walks, along the beaches and through the fields. The Coastal Path winds its way along the cliff tops and through the countryside. As well as the stunning views, there are many other treats including Trevose Head peninsula with its championship golf course and lighthouse.

The Camel Trail is a traffic free route following the old railway track between Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin, and is much loved by walkers and cyclists (bikes may be hired at Padstow or Wadebridge). The terrain is mostly level and offers a variety of paths of varying distance, meaning that whatever your age, or ability, everyone will enjoy the ride, The path winds its way alongside the riverbank through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its abundant wildlife.

Padstow is situated on the west side of the Camel estuary in North Cornwall and is an area of outstanding natural beauty with wonderful bays, beautiful golden beaches and stunning holiday cottages to rent. With the main town centered around the harbor and the countless restaurants and eateries (including Paul Ainesworth’s No 6 and Rick Stein’s fish & chips, and his famous seafood restaurant), many people come for a self-catering cottage holiday in Padstow but end up eating out for every meal – and we can’t blame them.

Even if you’re not a foodie, a cottage holiday in charming Padstow has so much to offer for those who want to burn energy and those who want to relax – or a bit of both. The mouth of the Camel River at Padstow is the start and end point of the 18 mile Camel Cycle trail connecting Padstow to Wadebridge which is smooth surfaced and mostly level & traffic free – a real family favourite. Padstow is also a great jumping on/off point for the South West Coast path and is a popular place to take a day and night’s rest from the hike in a cosy holiday cottage, before returning to the trail which covers much of this stretch of coastline.

Close to Padstow and our holiday cottages for you there is much on offer. In less than a five-minute drive from your cottage you can be relaxing on one of seven golden sandy beaches, or out in the water, rock-pooling, snorkeling, diving, windsurfing or surfing the waves of Cornwall, on your own or with one of the local surf schools in Padstow. And on the water who could forget to mention fishing in Padstow – a town famed for its seafood. Fishing in Padstow is full of opportunity, whether you’re casting off from the shore or the rocky headland, or hitching a ride on one of the many daily sea fishing trip boats leaving from Padstow harbor. Still out on the water, you can take a thrilling white knuckle speedboat ride out to the open ocean, hurtling past rugged Atlantic cliffs on a short but memorable ride. For a more sedate ocean voyage, a ferry operates from Padstow to the village of Rock across the river, popular with the stars and even royalty and a great place to start for even more Cornish coastal walking opportunities. Padstow town also houses a wonderful museum which offers a family friendly insight into the last few formative centuries in Padstow’s history and its place in the history of Cornwall.

Every day of your cottage holiday in Padstow could be as relaxing or adventure packed as you like – but whatever you choose to do we’re sure you’ll return thoroughly satisfied every night to your holiday cottage in Padstow!
