Shale & Shingle
Click to book Shale & Shingle now: from £200 per night With a shale-covered exterior and nautical-inspired style, this charming cottage fits right into the town of Padstow.

When you're not walking local trails or relaxing on the beach, settle down with a book in front of the fireplace in the living room or enjoy a drink outside on the patio. If you're lucky enough to be in the master bedroom, you'll also wake up each day to views over the rooftops of Padstow to the river. There's plenty of home comforts here, too, from the dishwasher and freezer to the washing machine and dryer – so your Cornish coastal stay is guaranteed to be effortless. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
Fal River Cottage
Click to book Fal River Cottage now: from £100 per night Most tourists make a beeline for the Cornish coast. Little do they know that this iconic county is home to another iconic landscape, The Fal river. The surroundings here are slightly different, green pasture gives way to mixed woodland and small pebbled riverside beaches. You could even say it’s tropical. Let’s not forget the plentiful botanical gardens you can find nearby – Trelissick (a twenty-minute drive away), Trebah (a forty-minute drive away) and Glendurgan (a forty-minute drive away) to name a few. This cottage provides the perfect panoramic view over these stunning vistas with two elevated decks. Watch the sailboats float by as you lie on the garden bed or have breakfast while waving to a passing paddle-boarder. The river is never far away, and you can even view the sparkling water from your double bed. Once you’ve finished exploring and enjoyed a pint at the popular Heron Inn, only three doors away, head home for a board game in front of the log burner. This characterful, quintessentially Cornish cottage dates back to the 1800s and offers traditional features alongside modern comforts. Sleeps up to 3 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Grey Seal now: from £200 per night With charming views over Watergate Bay, Grey Seal is the perfect place for a small family or a couple of friends. Located just four-hundred metres from the beach, you get the best of both worlds staying here. Enjoy wonderful views, easy access to the beach and none of the crowds. The open-plan layout invites guests to spend quality time together, whether that be enjoying a delicious meal, playing board games or simply relaxing on the glass-fronted balcony. You can also make use of the communal gardens or fire up the barbecue for an exceptional dinner. Keen surfers will be delighted to hear that your hosts have provided a free parking spot and a surf cage with an outdoor shower, so be sure to pack your surfboards. Those who are less keen on conquering the waves can enjoy long strolls along the beach or explore the surrounding area. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Whistle in the Wind
Click to book Whistle in the Wind now: from £200 per night Almost blending into its environment, this striking home of stone and wood sits deep in the Cornish countryside, near St Kew.

Original stone walls in the living space reach up to the vaulted ceiling, with duck egg window frames completing the picture. An addition to the home, a games room is all set up with a pool table and opens out onto a shingle terrace where a barbecue and dining table await you.

Here you'll be just a twenty-five minute drive from popular Padstow, with the stunning beaches of Polzeath and Rock even closer. Sleeps up to 9 | 4 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
