    Comfortable well-furnished accommodation with carefully considered touches and every effort to make a stay welcome, would certainly recommend it. Generous breakfasts with a good choice. Handy for Padstow Harbour in a quiet street just a couple of minutes away.

Possibility also to have your favourite newspaper along with your cup of tea! Landlady absolutely welcoming and kind.
