Cottage and location were very good. Had a nice comfortable, relaxing holiday.

Sitting on the decking overlooking the creek, loved feeding the ducklings and swans. It was peaceful and quiet - excellent. Also very near to Padstow for eating out, everything we want in a holiday.

Cottage is in superb location beside the tidal creek. Plenty of wildlife to see and fishing/crabbing from the decked area when the tide is in. Very peaceful and relaxing.

We loved the location of the cottage, it was very peaceful yet within easy reach of main roads. Loved the patio area although we didn't have the weather to use it to its potential!

The cottage was cosy, comfortable and beautifully furnished. We felt very happy there and hope we can come back. The whole area is a lovely place for exploring.

The cottage was comfortable, homely and pleasantly decorated, a lovely place to come back to after a days sightseeing. Perfectly placed for visiting many attractions in Cornwall. Nice quiet location with pleasant decking area for warmer months of year.

A delightful stay in a lovely little cottage. Situated on the edge of the tidal Little Petherick creek, we have been lucky to be visited by 7 Moorhen chicks, egrets, curlews and ducks. A must is the walk along the Camel trail from Old Town Cove (free parking 10 mins from cottage) to Padstow for a pasty from the famous Chough bakery. Further afield, the magnificent Bodmin moor to the North and Porthcurno beach and the Minack Theatre to the South. Waterside cottage is just the perfect base for your stay in Cornwall. From the deck, you see huge fish at high tide; with foot prints from the elusive otter at low tide; this cottage is a real Cornish gem.

Having always gone to Cornwall in spring and summer we thought we would try in the winter and we were really lucky the cottage was available over new year. The cottage is really comfortable and is tucked away in a quiet spot overlooking a lovely Cornish tidal creek. We saw Kingfishers and Egrets every day and even spotted a stoat on the patio! You can walk from the cottage along the creek to the Camel Trail and then on to Padstow or Wadebridge. It was a real delight to visit at a time of year when everywhere was really quiet - empty beaches, free beach carparks, no queues at the bakery for pasties and lonely coastal path walks....and yes we had great weather!

this is a comfy cottage in a very peaceful waterside location. Although compact, for a holiday rental where you are out and about most of the time it is plenty big enough for four people. What is lacking in space is made up for by the location on a no through road beside a tidal creek. If you are interested in wildlife this is an excellent locaction for watching birds, listening to owls at night and trying to spot the otter that sneaks by at low tide. We saw the footprints after each tide but never saw their owner. All in all we had a lovely week at waterside. The only minor downer from my wife's perspective was the poor band with on the Wi Fi. It's worth noting that if you want to eat out at more than one venue you need to either walk into Padstow about 45 minute across country or 10 minutes by car and hope you can park. There are other eateries around about with some very good ones in St Meryn. We used Waves and The View. There is also Rick Steins pub The Cornish Arms, it gets busy in the evening so best to go early but the food and beer are good and not overpriced.
