Betty's Cottage is in a quiet street yet only a five minute walk to the harbour. The interior of the cottage has been modernised recently and the downstairs area consists of a smart, very well appointed kitchen, a pleasant lounge, a quiet and comfortable bedroom and two good bathrooms, each with walk-in showers. There were just the two of us staying for a week so we lived totally downstairs and left our empty bags in the two upstairs bedrooms. We managed to fit our VW Tiguan SUV in the garage with a bit of manoeuvring. The cottage is a credit to its owner. We had excellent weather and enjoyed a great time.
We had a fantastic stay at Betty's cottage, it was beautiful clean and had everything you could wish for and more!! They had thought of everything, the place was spotless, fantastic location (close to the harbour) very thoughtful and extremely helpful owner had labelled and supplied everything needed and more! Thank you for a wonderful stay! We will def book again.
I returned to Padstow and Betty's Cottage for my second visit and with my best friend...
Once again the cottage was lovely, clean and with a welcome gift of some shortbreads and a bottle of fizz. Great touch after a long drive, thanks.
The location is the very best point as it is a short walk to the harbour and near the town. However even though it's a short walk it's uphill on the way back so gets your thighs working!
The cottage has a small garage and space to park outside. As my car was not small enough to fit in garage, I parked outside and this is where is stayed intil we took a trip to a Spa near Newquay. This parking was easy and felt safe and secure.
Whist sat in the cottage it was very quiet and it felt as though we were the only people in Padstow... Not the case when we got to the town which was buzzing with coffee and cake shops as well as pubs.
The beds and pillows were so comfortable and we both slept so well during our stay. As it has three bedrooms we could have asked a third person but our choices were already booked and busy, but the cottage was still perfect for two friends on their holidays.
Think this might be a yearly event and as I only booked after an evening drinking Prosecco with my bestie I maybe feel another Prosecco night coming up! XXX
We booked Betty's Cottage largely on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews as the photos certainly don't do it justice. This is a perfect property within a few minutes walk of Padstow Harbour and the fact that they allow pets is a bonus. The property is extremely well equipped, well decorated and furnished to a high standard. Our party of four had a fabulous three days in the cottage and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking home-from-home comforts in this wonderful part of the world. The welcoming bottles of wine and fresh milk were a very nice touch and greatly appreciated. This is clearly a cottage which is owned by people with pride in wanting to create a good impression. Thank you.
Betty's cottage was just perfect for our short stay in Padstow, instructions to find the property made it easy and having a garage for parking was a great bonus!
The cottage was wonderful, there was only 2 of us and the cottage can sleep 6. Great layout as we only needed to use the ground floor, lots of little extras with biscuits, milk and wine waiting fro us and Alison was really helpful.
Will definately be booking again!
Betty's Cottage is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and as spotlessly clean when we arrived. Decent furniture & furnishings, nice bedlinen & towels, matching crockery and cutlery may be what you'd expect at home but isn't necessarily always the case in holiday lets, but Betty's Cottage was a home from home. The use of the garage was a bonus as it kept my car safely off the road and not the target of seagulls. Although we were only 3 friends sharing, the cottage is amply spacious for the 6 occupants it can accommodate in its 3 bedrooms. Two bedrooms are upstairs and you should be aware that both the en suite and the family bathroom are both on the ground floor, but this isn't a problem for the able bodied.
Walking back up from the harbour at least once a day will keep you fit. Padstow itself is very pleasant with and interesting array of shops.
We can recommend Betty's Cottage and would certainly book again if visiting that part of Cornwall.
