“the only place we want to go”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We [my husband and I], stayed at the old police house a few weeks ago, it was our second year running staying there and once again we loved it. The apartment is clean, well equipped and very homely. We loved the fact we can walk out the door into the town, buy fresh fish and bread for lunch everyday, walk around the harbour, the lovely coastal walks and a stroll along the beach and just relax.

While there this year we were walking around discussing where we might like to go next year, the conversation only came up because we both knew where we would like to go, much as other locations we had been to had been ok, only Padstow and the old police house really fitted the bill, so God willing we will be back next year.

“Our 2nd Home!!! Amazing”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Thanks a million to Sally for allowing us a wonderful stay at Apartment 1. Such a lovely and cosy apartment with all the essentials and more in an ideal location! Highly recommended!!! Sally is so attentive and her attention to detail is perfect, she was ever willing to help in any way!
We feel in love with the place so much we didn't want to leave!!!
So handy having the parking there as it can be difficult to park there during peak times.
Padstow is such a wonderful and special place to us and Sally really made it an amazing holiday for us!
Please stay here, you won't regret it!

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife and I recently spent a 5 day break in Padstow and decided to rent a one bedroomed apartment. This was an excellent decision as our stay in the Old Police House made our break. The apartment had all the amenities you could ask for, the apartment was spacious, warm, cosy and the location was superb. Sally the property owner made sure we had everything we needed and made contact to welcome us and see that everything was to our satisfaction. We will certainly stay here again next year

“Fantastic central location”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

As above, the flat could not have been better located, and there was a parking place which was a bonus. The flat was very good really, as described, comfortable enough for the time we spent there. All very clean with crisp bedding. The only thing that let it down was the smell of damp that we couldn't get rid of despite leaving windows open. Other than this I would recommend on location alone. Also it was good value for money, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Hi Amanda. I am so sorry about this as we have not experienced a damp odour before in the flat. Our cleaner alerted me as soon as they went in after you left and I am heading there now to investigate with a builder and plumber before the next guests are due. I believe it could be the improvement work we had done to the external wall, which may have trapped some moisture so I am taking a dehumidifier, which should rectify this. I wish you had let me know when you were there and I could have relocated you, as this was obviously a problem, which I totally understand. We ask all our guests to let us know asap if anything arises when they are there and I will be sending a partial refund to you for this inconvenience. I cannot apologise enough. Sally.

We stayed in the apartment Monday to Friday had a bit of an issue with parking on our arrival with someone else taking up two spaces haveing rang Sally she said she would reimburse any parking charges luckily though someone heard us and it was there car which they then parked correctly problem sorted . Sally said she had wanted the lines redone I think this would be a good idea maybe also a name plaque or sign to say which spaces belong to who ? We absolutely loved the apartment bigger than we expected the pictures don't do it justice !! We didn't cook much but everything was there and more !! There is cleaning stuff in cupboard in hall you will also find bin bags toilet rolls etc !! Very quiet there at night and daytime . There is a wonderful pub called the golden lion meals are good value and really nice a stones throw away , bed was comfy bathroom was a nice size we loved it so much we are going to book again for next year !! I don't think it needs much updating it was perfect just the way it was !!!
