"Honestly, the best self catering cottage we've ever stayed in!"

We had an amazing time staying at Windmill Cottage. The style & feel of the whole place, as well as the attention to detail was perfect. Gail was ever so helpful & the little touches such as cream tea & flowers on arrival made all the difference. We will definitely be returning!

Thank you so much for your very kind review, glad you liked the cottage & the cream teas! We would be very happy to welcome you at Windmill Cottage in the future.

"well appointed cosy cottage in convenient location"

we had a great week at Windmill cottage. the furnishings and decor are cosy and welcoming and all of the bedrooms are a decent size, the two in the original part of the cottage are particularly light and airy. the garden is a good size and the location is very convenient both for padstow and the constantine / trevose / seven bays area. the main road doesn't create any noticable noise in the cottage with the windows closed on the road side so i would not be put off by this.
although this wasn't a problem for us, if you drive a wide vehicle like a large 4x4 you will find it very tight pulling in and out of the driveway.

Thank you so much for your very honest review, it was very helpful & will be very helpful to future guests. I am so glad you had such a nice break at Windmill Cottage - we do try to keep it looking good and functioning well as a home from home for both ourselves and our guests. Do come and visit again!

"Beautiful Cottage in a lovely setting"

The Cottage is well maintained in a lovely setting and the fresh flowers, scones and clotted cream was a lovely touch.

As a first trip away with our little one it was a lovely setting and no more than five minutes away from Padstow which made it ideal for us. The cottage is finished to a high standard and well stocked with games to keep kids entertained.

We loved our stay and only wished we could have stayed longer

Thanks Mark for your comments, so glad to hear you had a great first trip away with your little one and that Windmill Cottage worked well for you

Our holiday party consisted of two families (4 adults and 4 children all together). Windmill Cottage is well equipped and provided ample comfortable space, the large garden was enjoyed by the children. Windmill cottage is well located- a few minutes drive from Padstow and many sandy beaches all along a near-by coastal path. The boys amongst the group enjoyed mackerel fishing and the girls enjoyed pampering at the Golf Club in Constantine Bay! We spent 2 full days simply crabbing in Padstow. There is so much to do in the surrounding area. We loved it so much that we have already booked up for 2015.

thank you Jo for your lovely feedback, so glad you and your family and friends had a good time at the cottage and enjoyed the beautiful surrounding area, thank you for booking with us again next year.

"A cosy and well equipped cottage fairly close to the coast"

Three very nice bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom downstairs. A lovely kitchen/living room where the kids played while we fixed the dinner. All three bathrooms were first class, and all appliances worked as they should. The tricky part was to get in and out of the narrow gate direct out on the road.

"Great family holiday in a lovely and ideally situated cottage!"

A really comfortable and well situated cottage, in Windmill close to Padstow. Great for coastal walks and a good base for travelling to tourist spots! We had a very relaxing week in the sun and would definitely recommend this well equipt and well kept cottage for rental. Only bugbear was the tight approach to the property from the street (could be difficult with big cars) but small price to pay for a great stay.
