Duke House offers three delightful holiday apartments that are perfectly located in the 'Old Town' of Padstow, amongst the narrow little streets with pastel-washed cottages, winding their way down to the harbour with its bustling quayside with shops, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The apartments each have king size bedrooms and are ideal for couples or small families with one or two children (accommodated on a sofa bed).
Padstow is situated on the North Cornwall coast sheltering in a narrow gulley on the River Camel estuary. It benefits from calm waters and generally a warm climate and is set against a beautiful landscape with wide sandy beaches and rugged cliffs.
Duke House dates back some three hundred years and provides three stylish self-catering apartments which offer stylish contemporary accommodation with the perfect mix of lovely traditional features such as stonework and solid beams blended with modern conveniences. Beautifully presented to an exceptionally high standard, each apartment affords a patio area for relaxing outside and alfresco dining (one apartment, Dukes Retreat, even has the exclusive use of a hot tub on the patio!).
This is the ideal location at any time of the year whether you are looking for a relaxing break in Padstow or for a base from which to explore Cornwall's many attractions. Its diverse landscape holds many delights - unspoilt pretty fishing villages, market towns, historical castles and houses, the famous attractions of the Eden Project, Llanhydrock House and the beautiful Lost Gardens of Heligan to name only but a few.
Coastal footpaths with wonderful walks and golden beaches are nearby and the popular surfing haven of Newquay is only a short car ride away. Rugged coasts, quiet coves, fabulous walks, the opportunity to fish, sail or try a range of water sports, all make this a perfect location for those who enjoy outdoor activities. It is also great for golfers with the championship links golf course of Trevose within a short drive and three courses offering a challenge to golfers of all abilities within the area. Alternatively, simply relax and enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants, bistros, cafes or pubs (including the famous TV Chef Rick Stein's restaurants and Paul Ainsworth's No. 6); take a leisurely stroll around the town and look at the interesting little shops or enjoy a relaxing day on one of the beautiful sandy beaches such as Rock which is adjacent to Padstow and accessed by the ferry.
