About the property

Cottage in Padstow, Cornwall, set in Private Grounds, Wi-Fi, 4 Minutes walk to Harbour and beaches

This cottage is built in the grounds of what was the old Victorian school. There is a fully enclosed south facing garden to the rear and private parking to the front of the property. There are views of the Camel Estuary from our property and with a short 4 minute walk to the harbour and parking immediately outside the front door everything in and around the Padstow area is easily accessible. You have the choice of either walking, golfing, fishing, surfing, cycling along the camel estuary and beyond or just relaxing around the local beaches nearby. There are also some superb restaurants and shops in the harbour and, of course, Rick Stein sometimes puts in an appearance and you will now see Paul Ainsworth. Further afield you can visit Truro with its beautiful cathedral or the Eden project and the gardens of Heligan, all of which are approximately 45 minutes drive.

VICKI WINDOWS purchased this house in 1997

Why VICKI WINDOWS chose North Cornwall

We bought our little bolt hole in this part of Cornwall because we thought it was the best spot on the whole of the Cornish coast.

We like this area so much because there is always something to do all year round and life in Padstow doesn't stop even for the winter months.

We love the north Cornish coastline and the relaxing feeling when we arrive at the property and look at the estuary ahead. We take a big breath and feel completely relaxed almost immediately.

What makes this house unique

Our property is great for the parking which is a real bonus especially as we are so near to the harbour, so if needed, you can spend time at our cottage and not even leave Padstow. Once away from the house we are soon on the main road and not tangled up in queuing traffic.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Many thanks for a wonderful holiday. The accommodation and facilities are first class and the location couldn't be better for parking and a two minute walk into Padstow.

From here, we managed to get some nice walks along the coast and the reference books/materials were valuable in planning the outing. As we also go to bed at around 10.00 and wake up early, it was blissful, so quiet and peaceful that we didn't get up while late - for us!

Must mean that we were content and relaxed - the perfect holiday and would not hesitate to recommend people to book 9 The Old School Court.

comfortable, well equipped in a fab location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely family sized house only a 5 mins stroll from Padstow harbour and the best fish n chips in town.

Well equipped and very comfortable with everything you could want for a family break. Comfy living room, fully equipped kitchen with all the "mod cons", nice enclosed garden which makes a lovely place to sit with your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening and the extra bathrooms and parking for 2 cars are a real bonus.

The surrounding area has all you could ask for – beautiful local beaches and countryside, Padstow Harbour etc, lots to see and do and this a great base for your family stay
