Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Suitable for children over
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

This property is centrally located in Old Town Padstow. Originally, this was the Old Police House and has the tallest door in Padstow to accommodate the police hats worn in those days!

The building comprises of two apartments and each apartment has the fantastic advantage of adjoining parking for one reasonably - sized vehicle. Vans and large MPV's would probably not fit, but we can offer a discount towards parking costs if this is the case. Pets (max two dogs) are welcome.

Please also see the separate advertisement for 'The Old Police House - App 2' which is a one bedroomed apartment.

Although not 5 star Padstow accommodation, this 2 bedroomed - Apartment 1 is comfortable, has character and is very well located. The letting price does reflect that improvements could be made as, having recently taken over the property, the owner hopes to make these improvements over the forthcoming years. The owner would currently rate the apartment as 2-3 star.

Initial access is through a large communal hallway. From the hallway each apartment has its own private access.

Apartment One is located up a short flight of stairs. There are two good sized bedrooms, one with a Double Bed and one Twin Room.

The Lounge/Diner has two twin sofas, a Flat Screen TV and DVD Player. Small Dining table, but comfortably seats four adults.

The Galley Kitchen has a two ringed induction hob, an electric oven with grill and a microwave oven. The standard sized fridge is located within the property but just outside of the kitchen. Although small and compact, this galley kitchen does have sufficient storage and is fully equipped. Please do note: There is no dishwasher, washing machine or freezer within the property, although there is a nearby laundrette.

The family bathroom contains the original enamel bath with a modern electric shower over the bath.

The hot water for the kitchen and bathroom comes from an electric heater.The switch for this is located in the kitchen. A heated towel rail is located in the bathroom.

There are Night Storage Heaters in both bedrooms and also in the lounge

Extra Electric Heaters are available in the property if required.

All bedding is supplied. Teatowel supplied, but please bring your own towels/flannels etc.

Changeover day is normally Saturday. The owner may be able to be flexible on this.

Check in after 3.30pm at busy times. Can be flexible on this at low season. Check out 10.30am, please.

Short breaks available at the owners discretion.

Please note that, as an old building, the house does not have double glazing. It is in a quiet road, but central, so there will be some passing traffic and pedestrians.

A local cleaner can visit during a two week let for a charge of £25.

The West Country region

Padstow is in the centre of the North Cornwall Coast and is a good base for visiting Newquay, Wadebridge, the Eden Project and Truro. The coast here can be wild and surfing is very popular. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the light changes seemingly every day - inspiring many artists to settle in this region. Visitors return each year to enjoy the scenery and heritage of Cornwall.


Padstow is a beautiful and historic harbour town, which still supports local fishing and has all the watersports you could need within easy access.

The restaurants and pubs in the area have something for everyone and the Camel Trail is fantastic for an easy days' cycling. The nearest beaches are within a 10 minute walk, and Rock can be visited via a regular ferry service.

Excellent golf courses are within easy reach by car, as are all the bays in the St Merryn area.

Thanks ever so much for your lovely review. We do try to show in the description that it is not Padstow 5 star and I am really pleased to hear that you liked the character so much. We try to upgrade as and when we can, but always want to keep that sense of history. This year we have painted and re carpeted. Next year we hope to start on the windows and outside.
We hope you see little improvements each time if you stay with us again. We hope you do! Sally x
