“Another excellent break at the Old Police House”
Reviewed May 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just returned from our second stay at the old police house in the ground floor apartment. We are now planning when we will visit Padstow again next year and hope we can stay at this venue again. The amenities and cleanliness were excellent and everything you may need was available. The location is right in the heart of Padstow and everything only minutes away. We love Padstow and staying at the old police house will be an annual trip.

“We'll be back!”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We've just returned home from a fantastic few days in Padstow during the Easter holiday - made all the more perfect by staying at the Old Police House (downstairs apartment), which has a lovely, cosy cottage feel. The apartment is immaculate and contains everything you could possibly need with a fabulous location, just a stone's throw from the harbour. A massive plus is the fact that there is a car parking space too - we parked up and didn't use the car again until we left!

Many thanks to owner, Sally for excellent detailed information about the apartment and locality - we really had a great time and are looking to return next year please!

“Great Apartment!”
Reviewed April 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed for a week over Easter, was pleasantly surprised as apartment is bigger than it looks in the pics, nice size lounge to relax in after a busy day walking/cycling, ate out in the fab restaurants in Padstow but also cooked as you can buy great fish and seafood at good prices from Rick steins deli, kitchen had everything we needed. Weather was mixed, but we were warm on the cold nights, it's such a bonus to be right in the heart of Padstow and have a parking! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will definitely be returning.

“Beautiful Cottage, really pretty and an excellent place to stay”

people found this review helpful

We stayed here at New Year and found it to be really cosy and comfortable. We had everything we needed in the cottage. The kitchen is bijou, but very well equipped. The entrance provides a great place to put wet, muddy walking gear so you don't have to have it in the bedroom. The cottage is in a great location to browse round Padstow. The parking arrangements were fine. We will definitely be returning.

“What a Cornish Gem”

Just returned from a four night stay in the larger apartment. Everything just perfect. The apartment is immaculately clean and furnished. I agree with previous comments about the size of the kitchen but we managed to cook our meals with no problem at all. The provision of a parking space is priceless. We parked the car when we arrived and it didn't move for three days. The apartment is ideally situated and I should imagine still quiet even in the busy months. We will return!!!

This is the third stay at this wonderful accommodation . The property has had some improvements since our last visit which has made it all the more charming. It's quiet this time of year at padstow which contributed to a peaceful holiday . Whilst there we visited the golden lion , cherry trees ( there pancakes and cakes are amazing !!) for our meals . Got a bit wet due to weather but padstow gave us just the tonic we needed for a rest . We love returning to the old police house and has the feeling of home. We have already picked dates to return later in the year we are counting down the days already

So lovely of you to review us as a returning guest. I totally agree about how Padstow is such a tonic and the food is amazing. We are still trying to improve as and when we can and it is nice to hear you think we are getting things right, as a 'regular'! Sally xx
