Malt Cottage is 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. This gorgeous Cornish cottage has a kingsize bedroom as well as a twin, making it ideal for couples and families (as well as pet owners accepting up to three dogs by arrangement).
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.
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 accessible by the ferry.
