    “Another fabulous stay at this gorgeous cottage.”

    A very wet and cold week made so much easier by having a warm and welcoming cottage to return to - along with outdoor hosing facilities for sand and a washing machine and dryer for wet clothing. Very well equipped and enjoyed by us all.

About the location


Padstow 3 miles; Wadebridge 4 miles.

St Issey is a small rural hamlet with a church, pub and village shop, just 3 miles from the beautiful fishing village of Padstow. There are several top quality bathing and surfing beaches within 5 miles and the coastal path wends its way over the cliff tops and down among the rocky coves through some of Cornwall’s best coastal scenery. The little gem of Padstow with its famous restaurants, tranquil harbour and interesting shops should not be missed, and the Camel cycling and walking trail from Padstow to Bodmin makes a great day out. Take the ferry across the Camel estuary to Rock, surf the Atlantic breakers at nearby Polzeath, visit up-and-coming Wadebridge, or enjoy the fabulous Eden Project (20 miles) - the perfect base for a perfect holiday.

Note: This property is best for a maximum of 6 adults or 4 adults and 4 children.
