Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely house to stay in while you are in Padstow. Ideally positioned so you do not need to drive, it really is 4 minutes to the harbour. 3 adults stayed for a week and could not fault anything, I slept like a log all week. We only ate in 1 night and that was fish and chips from Rick Stein. The kitchen had all you needed, did cook breakfast and everything worked great. My only comment was the heating did not seem to come on - we did check the timer and my elderly father-in-law said he was cold. That was only on 1 evening so not a great problem. Nice views and a super week spent there.

A delightful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this delightful house, ideally situated 5 minutes from the village of Padstow. The weather was not great but we had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Family at Royal Cornwall Show so ideal location for this as well. Would definitely like to stay again soon. Many thanks, plus ample parking which is a premium in Padstow.

Well presented house in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, well appointed house. Comfortable sofas and beds and beautifully decorated. The location was just perfect for us - 5-10 minutes walk to town centre but far enough out to access easily by car without going into the chaos of the town. A couple of minutes drive up the hill there is a large Tesco. The house has private parking right outside. There are views of the estuary from the back of the house and the sun streams in in the mornings. There is a dear little patio garden furnished with table, chairs and parasol for sitting out. We loved it and would certainly return there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review - it is great to hear that you found the house comfortable and that it helped you to enjoy your time in Cornwall. We too have always loved the views from the back of the house - and the fact that you are close enough to the town to be able to enjoy all that Padstow has to offer, but far enough out for it to be quiet. We would love to welcome you back one day.

Fantastic place to stay in Padstow

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the house; the location is excellent, close enough to walk to town easily down the hill but still quiet and calm.

The designated parking space was ideal for us with a little baby, and there was visitor parking permit available too.

The equipment in the house was well considered with everything we needed was available to cook there.

Highly recommended if you want to stay in Padstow.

Owner's Response: The peacefulness the house and garden, whilst being so close to the town, is one of the things we have always loved the most about Old School Court.....along with the view of the estuary! And it is true that parking can sometimes be a problem in the town so to have a dedicated space so close to the house is a bonus. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you found our house well equipped with everything you needed too. Thank you for your review.

Wonderful week in Padstow

  • 5 of 5

We've just enjoyed a wonderful week in Padstow in this lovely home from home. Fantastic estuary views and also equipped with everything you will need. The standard is really high and everything was immaculate on our arrival. Thank you for the welcome goodies too - very much appreciated after the long drive from Sussex. The added bonus is the brilliant location so close to the Harbour and all the great restaurants which we made use of several nights. We will certainly be back on our next visit to Padstow.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful 'home from home', wonderfully decorated and very well resourced. Fabulous location with great views of the harbour. A 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Padstow, everything you could possibly need nearby. We had two young children and a grandparent along with us and it still felt spacious.

Plenty of places to visit nearby but so lovely to be able to walk into Padstow and not thing about parking or driving.

We have been to Cornwall staying in cottages every year for the past 6 years and this is by far the best place we have stayed for location and facilities - a very relaxing, warming holiday.

P.s. lovely Bakewell tart, milk in the fridge and tea bags for arrival were very much appreciated.

Can't recommend highly enough.
