    “Lovely light filled, secluded upside down cottage.”


    I felt it had been cleaned well, and left in a safe way for my stay, observing covid rules. Comfortable beds, and I loved being able to shower with a view of the sky! Nice touches, like the bookcase set into the wall of the hallway, which itself was a good space. The kitchen was well equipped although I feel some of the utensils need to be checked and replaced. A pretty garden which gets plenty of sun, but be warned the decking area is sharp underfoot (anti- slip ridges) and so using it barefoot is not recommended. The parking area is fine but with overhanging trees, the birds enjoyed using my car as a toilet, and I had to wash it 3 times during my stay. Not what I expect to have to do on holiday. Whilst the cottage is secluded, it is a half mile walk downhill to the Camel Trail which takes you into Padstow or Wadebridge depending on which way you walk. And it is a mile uphill to the main road and the bus stop, with links to the same destinations and beyond. Otherwise a car would be essential if staying here. I had a supermarket delivery when I arrived, but there is a large Tesco about 5 mins away in the car.

The property

500 yards from the pub at Edmonton and the Camel Trail, a cleverly designed, eco-friendly, smart ‘upside down’ cottage converted from a barn attached to the friendly owners’ ancient cottage, wonderfully tucked away along a no-through road with gorgeous, long, tranquil views over the Camel estuary.

A hundred yards of hardcore farmtrack/footpath lead to it with the occasional passing tractor or walkers.

At the back, a neat enclosed suntrap garden and you are welcome to wander the owners’ kitchen garden to their little wood, all surrounded by sheep/cattle grazed meadows.Inside, mostly wood floors.

Two steps up to entrance to tiled hall and two bedrooms (beds with footboards) - a double (5' bed) with step up to French windows to garden, and a twin (limited clothes-hanging space); smart shower-room (suite, step up into large cubicle).

Beech stairs up to attractively fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); 3 steps down to light, airy living/dining room (TV/DVD) with great views one side and French windows on the other to balcony with steps down to the garden.

A real retreat and a great spot for cyclists/walkers/surfers with easy access to Padstow (and good public transport) via the Camel Trail. Edmonton: hamlet of former stone quarrymen’s cottages (no working quarry near now), excellent family good food pub.

Little-used lane runs one mile down to the Camel estuary (birdwatching) and Camel Trail (cycleway).

Wadebridge, 2 miles; Padstow, 6; the splendid Trevose peninsula beaches, 7½ miles; Camel Valley vineyard (tours, tastings), 8.

Excellent golf, walking, watersports and riding nearby.
