Lobster Pot Cottage is a relatively newly built, 'fisherman's style' cottage with a parking space, situated right in the heart of Padstow and only 175 yards from the quayside.
It is built partly of Delabole slate, with huge oak beams, oak doors, and floors of oak and old flagstones and the property has been finished to a very high specification with a charming vaulted living area at first floor level.
Downstairs there is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both with oak beams, oak doors and a fitted wardrobe. The family bathroom is also on the ground floor with a modern range of sanitary ware, a shower over the bath and stone tiles. Old flagstones run throughout this level with under floor heating.
Upstairs there is a light and airy living area with the lounge one side of the oak staircase and the dining area the other. The room has a vaulted ceiling with huge oak beams and an oak floor with central heating and is decorated with a nautical theme as befitting it's Lobster Pot name. There is a TV with integral DVD together with a radio/CD player. The large, comfortable corner sofa converts to a sofa bed if needed. The kitchen leads off the dining area and has a range of modern units, as well as an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and is very well equipped.
Off the lounge and kitchen is a small terrace with garden furniture for dining alfresco with a gate and steps down from the terrace to ground floor level.
PETS ARE NOT accepted in this property.
Weekly bookings commence on a SATURDAY only between April and the end of September. To change the commencement day at this busy time of year will make an impact on our other bookings.
We do not generally accept short breaks during school holidays or between April and October, unless we still have availability much closer to the time. Short break prices are calculated on a percentage basis (not a nightly rate) taking maximum occupancy into account, e.g. 2 nights - 75%, 3 nights – 80% and 4 nights – 85% of the full weekly rate at that time and 5 – 7 nights will cost the full weekly price.
AROUND THE LOCAL AREA.
The historic town of Padstow has evolved around the busy harbour and quayside and is very picturesque with its narrow streets, littered with cafes, restaurants, interesting shops and tiny cottages. Much of the locally caught fish and seafood are sent to fish markets all over the country, but there is still plenty for the locals and the visitors, especially for the town's renowned seafood restaurants.
The town is surrounded by rugged cliffs, hidden coves and beautiful sandy beaches, such as Porthcothan, Constantine, Treyaron, Trevone, Harlyn, Daymer and Watergate bay. There is a ferry in the summer which takes visitors over to Rock on the other side of the estuary.
There is plenty to keep visitors happy, whether it is walking along the coastal path, cycling the Camel trail, surfing, visiting National Trust houses and gardens or just wandering around the shops and watching the local fisherman attending to their daily chores.Get the full listing »
