The picturesque Cornish town of Padstow makes a lovely holiday base and has a delightful choice of cottages with hot tubs for you to unwind in at the end of a fantastic day out. This charming North Cornwall town is known for its thriving harbour, stunning beaches and excellent restaurants including Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant. There’s a fantastic choice of Cornish cottages with hot tubs to rent in the Padstow area, including spacious lodges, attractive farmhouses and contemporary cottages, all with the added bonus of a relaxing hot tub. Dating back over four centuries, Padstow’s harbour is filled with fishing boats and pleasure boats, with a regular crossing to the picturesque village of Rock. Our Padstow cottages are also close to some excellent shops and art galleries showcasing the work of talented local artists.
Padstow is perfect for exploring some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches, including Bedruthan Steps, Treyarnon Bay, Harlyn Bay and the popular surfing beach of Constantine Bay. There are some splendid walks and cycle trails, including the South West Coast Path, the Padstow Circular Walk and the disused railway now known as the Camel Trail which leads to Wenfordbridge and Bodmin. Families can enjoy a great day out at Camel Creek Adventure Park, and the area is also excellent for birdwatching, with curlews and egrets to be seen at Pinkson Creek. Heading north along the coast you can visit Wadebridge, Polzeath and the fishing village of Port Isaac. The surfing paradise of Newquay and the idyllic village of St Agnes are to the southwest.
