ARC Padstow is an exceptional elegant property for group self-catering holidays in Cornwall. The 18th Century manor house is in the hamlet village of St Issey, within a short stroll of the village pub and close to Padstow in the scenic Camel Estuary. Together with Parti Architects, the owners have returned the house to its original Georgian glory, restoring its original layout and furnishing it with incredible attention to detail. While the exterior is delightfully traditional, the interior is light, fresh and modern, boasting designer features. There is space for 26 people to sleep in 13 ensuite bedrooms with multiple reception rooms that encourage guests to congregate and socialise. Luxury never goes out of fashion, as you will find when you come here with your extended family or friends. Book ARC Padstow for your celebration, to host a reunion with your extended family and friends, or as accommodation for wedding parties.
St Issey is idyllic. While convenient for popular places like Padstow and Wadebridge, it's away from the busy tourist trail, which means plenty of peace when you want it and fantastic beaches, attractions and restaurants when you don't! You'll undoubtedly want to spend time in Padstow, a place renowned for the quality of the seafood that comes in through its busy harbour and gorgeous sandy beaches. Go surfing, coasteering, paddleboarding, kayaking or sailing off the coast or along the River Camel.
You might be completely content with having the best beaches of North Cornwall on your doorstep. However, those who want more can play golf, walk the South West Coast Path, cycle the Camel Trail, and fish for salmon on the River Camel. Younger guests love the traditional fair rides at the Camel Creek Adventure Park, while the St Eval Kart Circuit appeals to anyone with a competitive streak. Hire a coach and take a day trip to local vineyards and beauty spots like Lundy Bay. The owners want your holiday to be stress-free and memorable and can help you arrange on-site treats like private yoga tuition, a chef and bartender, and a photographer.
ARC Padstow is available for holiday bookings and short breaks all year round. Children and well-behaved dogs are welcome.
