“cosy, home from home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2010

This is our second year at Sunbeam cottage and it did not dissapoint. The cottage is warm, cosy, very tastefully furnished and has quality bedlinen and towels. The kitchen is well equiped although with so many lovely restaurants and pubs within walking distance not much cooking is required if you did not want to. Wendy ,the owner, can not do enough to make the stay a good one.
I can highly recommend Sunbeam cottage and also Padstow, I have never been anywhere quite so friendly.

I appreciate this is a late review, but have just rebooked our stay for 2010 and wanted to say what a fantastic cottage this is.

We were looking for a cottage with 2 bathrooms, in a central location which allowed a dog and Sunbeam ticked all the boxes. The cottage facilities are excellent, with a fully stocked kitchen, bed linen and a warm cosy lounge. The central location meant we could walk to the harbour in less than 5 mins and enjoy all the fabulous walks in around Padstow.

If I had to make a negative point, it was not having a garden which would have been great to have a BBQ in, however as we ate out all the time this wasn't a great issue.

Definitely recommend ths cottage and looking forward to our next stay in Sunbeam later this year.

Having just arrived back from a weekend in Padstow with my boyfriend, I wanted to tell everyone about the great B&B we found there. The Sunbeam Cottage is run by a very helpful lady called Wendy. She showed us to our room, took our breakfast order for the next day and pointed out areas to park for free. It is centrally based (just a stones throw from Rick Stein's seafood restaurant), although does not have a view of the harbour (N.B. For the uninitiated, the view of the harbour is by no means the best Cornwall has to offer anyway). We paid £55 for the room per night, which I thought was excellent value compared to other B&Bs which were over £100 a night in January! The room was fairly spacious, clean and very tastefully decorated, definitely up a notch up from the image of the traditional 1960s B&B. Best of all - breakfast is served in your bedroom!

I rate this B&B as excellent for the quality of service, the cosiness of the rooms, the location, but especially for the value for money in Padstow.
