"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.

"Didn't want to leave."

My partner and I have just stayed for 5 days at Windmill Cottage. It is gorgeous. The accommodation is charming. Everything has been well thought out. I could happily live there! It's in a lovely… More

thanks Jennie for your very kind review, delighted you had such a good time & you liked our cottage. So glad you felt at home there - we do try to keep it as a home from home so guests feel comfy & cosy! It is a good base to explore the surrounding area which is such a stunning part of the Cornish coastline. We would love you to come back & stay again in the future. Thanks for leaving the cottage so immaculate - we really appreciate that.

"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.

"Idyllic Cornish cottage - a little slice of heaven"

The pictures do not lie... this cottage is beautiful in every way, with immaculate presentation and wonderfully tasteful decor. It has all the mod-cons yet still feels rustic and very cozy...
We were greeted with fresh flowers, Fresh scones, clotted cream and local jam for all eight of us and logs for the stove, there was even some milk in the fridge which I thought was a very thoughtful touch.
The kitchen and living room area is the heart of the cottage and the large kitchen table and benches lend very well to relaxed dinners and lovely evenings in.
The cottage is situated a stones throw from Padstow and Trevone Bay which is dramatic as it is beautiful. Lots of coastal walks, perfectly situated on the North Cornish coast.
Its a home away from home and I cannot recommend highly enough...
Owners very helpful and always responsive
A wonderful gem of a place... I cannot wait to go back.

"What a great cottage"

We had a weekend away for my daughters 21st birthday. The cottage was great from the moment we walked in. Lovely and cosy. Comfortable beds and very well equipped.
Close to the beach and close to everywhere we wanted to visit. Padstow, Watergate Bay.
Recommended to us and we would recommend to others.
