About the Owner

We bought the house in Padstow in 1988 and gradually renovated it. Primarily it is a family holiday home which has been enjoyed by us all for many years, in all seasons. Our adult children now enjoy it with their friends. We hope that all the many guests who have rented the house have had as much pleasure from it, and will continue to do so.

From the Owner

When we bought our house in 1988, it had belonged to a well known Padstow family, the Prideaux Brunes, who own the beautiful house at the top of the town, Prideaux Place. We decided that a centrally located house would be more fun for our young family, as it proved to be. It is of course now so well situated for some of the best resturaunts in the country. Despite the "town" location the garden is like a peacful haven and a sun trap. Many people stay in our house content not to use their car throughout the week. Within 20 minutes drive from the house there are Seven different beaches for surfing. The estuary supports super wind surfing facilities, there is a water sking school and sailing school across on the ferry at Rock.
