About the property

Cottage in Padstow, old part of town, private parking, family & pet friendly, walk to harbour - Peaceful Location

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 North Cornwall

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

One of the best, probably the best stay in Padstow. Three weeks here and a real home from home. We are certainly looking at coming back

Great property within walking distance of harbour

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on the 19th December for a Christmas break in Padstow, newly built well furnished property within walking distance of Padstow and its lovely harbour, a lovely hamper was awaiting us on our arrival!! This will definitely be a superb summer cottage as there are double French doors leading out to a great patio area, but not the best for the winter months. Adrianna could not have done more for us during the booking and run up to our stay. I would highly recommend this property but book early to avoid a summer disappointment.

Skye Cottage a central Padstow base with parking

  • 4 of 5

A great holiday home in central Padstow with parking

We were two couples so it was lovely to each have our own ensuite and a view of the harbour

As the weather was fantastic we took advantage of the outside seating

We having been staying in this area for over 20 years and this ticks all the boxes for a perfect location to enjoy the charm of this fabulous area

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in other self catering properties in Padstow but this far outweighs the others we have stayed in - light, clean and comfortable with the added bonus of a parking space right outside the door. Hopefully we will be back.

An excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

The property is excellent, every need is catered for. Great location, close to the harbour, but far enough to be quiet. Having a parking space is so important in Padstow. We have already booked for next year.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to Padstow and this was by far the best place we have stayed, Spacious, modern with every convenience for our 10 day stay. We would have no hesitation to recommend and we hope to stay again when we visit Padstow.
