About Sarah Vaughan

I was born and grew up in Sheffield and moved from Yorkshire to the Midlands in my late 20s. I am married and work as an Advisory Teacher in Staffordshire. I love the outdoors and am most relaxed when I'm by the sea - whatever the weather!

Sarah Vaughan purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Sarah Vaughan chose North Cornwall

I have been a visitor to Cornwall all my life and have very happy childhood memories of summer holidays spent in and around Padstow. When the opportunity arose to buy a second home I didn't consider anywhere else - it had to be Padstow!

This is a fantastic property in a lovely rural location, immaculately clean and superbly equipped

  • 5 of 5

The Pad is fantastic, would highly recommend, It was immaculately clean and so

well equipped with everything you need. It is in a lovely rural location with fantastic

views across the fields, with a lovely garden to sit in. Everything inside The Pad

all the fittings and furnishings are superb and to a very high standard. I would love to come and stay again and would highly recommend The Pad, it is a gem of a property and in an amazing area too with fantastic beaches close by as well as the lovely town of Padstow.

Nice property and good value

  • 4 of 5

Really well appointed ! Had everything we needed and more . Welcome wine and local short bread a lovely touch.

We will be visiting again. The only reason I have not rated as 5 star as just slightly too far for us to walk in to town in the evening.

Lovely cottage in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Meadow Court a couple of times previously but this New Year was the first time we have stayed at 'The Pad'. It's in such a lovely location and only a 15/20 min walk into Padstow which has everything you could possibly need from really good restaurants, pubs/shops as well as a couple of nearby beaches so your car doesn't really need to move if you don't want to drive anywhere. There's also a Tesco just up the road from the cottages so very convenient for any bits and pieces you might need. Turning to the cottage itself; it's so comfy and well equipped. Don't think there was anything I'd improve really and would definitely book again. In fact, we already have for this coming New Year's Eve!

Lovely holiday cottage in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The Pad is situated in a peaceful, beautiful environment a short drive or 20 minute walk from Padstow. It is extremely well equipped and has everything you could possibly need for your holiday. Plenty of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils and pleasingly there was washing up liquid and dish washer tablets supplied. The Pad was spotlessly clean on arrival. It is a very homely, relaxing and very well maintained. Sarah, the owner responded promptly to e mails during the booking process and queries whilst we were away. Can highly recommend and look forward to visiting again.

Perfect Location for a Padstow Foodie Weekend

  • 5 of 5

As regular visitors to Cornwall as we have both friends and family in the area my partner and I are always looking for the perfect base and the Pad may just be it. It is a welcoming little house with the character and feel of a cottage with the clean lines of a modern property. Only a small draw back ..and I mean small there is no wardrobe but if you want character sometimes the compromise is worth it. The large corner sofa is perfect to cuddle up on after a long day in the sea air. And the view from the shower out over the countryside is breath taking. The kitchen has everything you will need. . just add food! There is ample parking which is a god send - and it is close to the house! For us it is the perfect location - off a little road at the top of Padstow it offers a rural setting but is a walk away from the sea and the town. Also our friends live in St Merryn so it was an easy drive to them, Rick Stein's Fish & Chips at the Cornish Arms and a Roast Carvery to die for at The Farmers Arms! We were only away for 5 days but we manage to visits - Turo for the Cornwall Food Festival, Falmouth and the amazing harbour, Jamie's Fifteen at the amazing Watergate Bay, Lust Glaze Beach which is worth the 133 step climb down! And Padstow to our favourite place to eat Rojanos. And after all that the Pad was the perfect place to come back to, warm, welcoming - with wine and biscuits upon arrival... Thank you we will be back!
