About the property

PRIVATE PARKING, Cottage in Padstow, old part of town, family & pet friendly

Skye Cottage is situated in the old part of Padstow, in a very quiet street, just ten minute walk from centre of town. Parking, which is pretty rare in Padstow, is on your doorstep. The house is just nine years old but has been built in the old Cornish tradition, with slates front and the back garden is a fantastic sun trap. Within short walking distance you will be in the harbour, where all the famous restaurants of Padstow are located. Shops and pubs are also just down the road. Padstow is a perfect base from which to explore the whole county of Cornwall, not far from any of the other attractions such as Eden Project, Port Isaac, St Ives and the beaches of Trevone, Harlyn, Constantine, Treyarnon, Newquay, Watergate, Mawgan Porth and the famous coast path walk.

About Adriana Bringuenti

I am a Brazilian lady who have been living in the UK for 27 years, 23 of which in Cornwall where I have made my home and can't think of leaving this place. I have always lived in this area, first in Bloomfield, Trevone (E6352), Padstow for 12 years, where I have Skye Cottage and now in Mawgan Porth. I am married to a local chap and both my daughters were born here, where they follow on their dad's footsteps playing golf, surfing and life-guarding during the Summer.

Adriana Bringuenti purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Adriana Bringuenti chose Padstow

We built Skye Cottage from scratch on the grounds of Garslade - the house over the gate, from where I ran a B&B for 12 years. The idea was to add a couple of bedrooms to the B&B but we ended up building a proper house, which is now being rented as self-catering since we no longer own Garslade. The house has a modern feel to it, with ceramic floors downstairs and underfloor heating, and oak floors upstairs. The bathrooms upstairs also have underfloor heating.

What makes this cottage unique

PARKING, PARKING, PARKING. PRIVATE PARKING. Sorry to bang on about it, but it's very rare in the old part of Padstow to have your own parking space, in a property that's so near all the amenities of the town. Another major attraction is that both rooms are en-suite, which is very welcomed by couples who come on holiday together. Another bathroom downstairs will let you sort out the sand you bring from the beach.

A tranquil idyll in the heart of Padstow. Ideal location, spacious, clean, private.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a few cottages in Padstow but think we have found the perfect place in Skye Cottage.

The house had everything we needed. Particularly the luxury of a parking space which aren't easy to come by in Padstow!

Adriana was very friendly, yet efficient in her communication and although it wasn't necessary, I felt that she would have been quick to resolve any issues, had there been any.

The cottage is in an ideal location being near enough to the town to walk to restaurants, bars and shops, but also far enough out of town to be quiet in the evenings.

The house is well set out with light and spacious rooms which are well furnished.

The secluded garden, (another rarity in Padstow) was perfect for relaxing in when lacking in energy to head to the beach, or just in the evening with a drink after a busy day.

The kitchen is well equipped and we found it had everything we needed.

I would thoroughly recommend Skye Cottage to families looking for an ideal base for a beach holiday, 'foodies' wanting to explore the many wonderful places to eat or even walkers wanting to make the most of the stunning scenery and coastal paths around North Cornwall.

We did a little bit of everything, and had a thoroughly enjoyable fortnight.

Thank you very much Adriana, we are very much looking forward to next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Claire, thank you so much for your kind words. And thank you very much for leaving the house so clean, as well. You're more than welcome next year! I try to cater for everybody without cluttering the house, so really pleased you found everything you wanted. The ice creams you 'forgot' in the freezer were a great treat while cleaning the house. Best wishes and see ou next year. Adriana

Great House, Perfect Location, Sunny Secure Garden and Parking!

We stayed for a week with our small dog, the house is great, with two ensuite bedrooms it is perfect for two couples sharing, beds are really comfortable and the showers are a good pressure with plenty of hot water, the house is well equipped with decent Freeview TV and a good speed of WiFi, the garden has sun in the morning on the upper terrace and sun all day in the courtyard until 7PM, the location is only a 5 minute walk from the harbour with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The Old Custom House and The Basement were our favourites. We walked from the house to the beach within 15 minutes, the beach at Hawkers Cove is amazing and great for dog walking. Contact with the owner was simple and very quick, we had a fantastic holiday at this house and would recommend it.

Lovely clean cottage perfectly positioned for Padstow

  • 5 of 5

We love the cottage and have been 3 years on the run. It's 5 min walk from the harbour and shops but still lovely and peacefull if you just want to soak up some sun in the garden (which is an amazing sun trap). Will definately be back. Also it has parking and I can bring my dog - bonus :-)

Perfectly positioned and very comfortable holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean on our arrival and perfectly situated for a brief stroll into the harbour and shops. Couldn't have wished for a better layout - parking at the property an absolute bonus and a fully enclosed garden for our two dogs. Large fridge and freezer should you need it. Lovely to have good, powerful showers in the ensuites and decent patio furniture to enjoy the sun in the garden. If I had to make any suggestions it would be for a full length mirror on a wall somewhere and a clothes horse but these are so very minor and not at all impactful on our stay. Highly recommended with an owner who clearly understands how people want to holiday. Thank you - we intend to return!!

We arrived for a week at Bloomfield and we had a lovely time, the house is very well located and cosy, walking distance from the beach and minutes drive away from Padstow. Very clean and well fitted house for just a couple or a family. I’ll come back.

Additional pricing information

Pet Fee £25

I have been forced to accept online bookings so, if you don't wish to pay VAT, you can come directly to me and pay via bank transfer. Although Owners Direct is charging you now, I won't receive this money after you have arrived, which I don't find fair. The amount of the deposit will depend on the season and the full amount to be paid, but it's normally 40%. Payment is made by Internet banking/bank transfer. Payment for short breaks of up to four nights is paid in full at the time of booking.

Changeover day is Friday but I am very flexible during low season. Please contact me for alternative arrangements. No cards, sorry. A fee of £25.00/dog is also charged (maximum of two dogs).
Terms & Conditions:

Guests cancelling up to four weeks before arrival will receive 50% of the balance money
Guests cancelling up to two weeks before arrival will receive 25% of the balance money
Deposit money is non-refundable and all cancellations have to be made in writing
Note: Bad weather and therefore inability to drive to Cornwall is not my fault!

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
