“Perfect”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

We were only 3 days into our stay and we have booked a longer holiday next year so that speaks volumes!!

Admittedly we were only in Padstow for food so our accommodation was secondary but we couldn't have picked anywhere better.

Perfect location just close enough for a 5 min stroll to the harbour front and far enough away from the mass throngs of visitors/holidaymakers visiting Padstow.

The cottage is very well appointed there was no need to bring all we did but we will know for next year. Use of the communal washing machines and tumble dryers means for the first time ever we are going home with cases packed full of clean clothes, that's one happy wife.

We wouldn't swap our week here for a week abroad and Rafters certainly made our stay very enjoyable, we cannot wait to return.

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a find! A gorgeous place set away from the busy harbour but minutes from everything. It feels bigger than the pictures and has everything you could need from scones to a coffee machine to tin foil!

We can't wait to go back!

“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for a week in late June. Loved it, we can't think of a single thing to fault. A great apartment set over 2 floors, a home from home, clean and very comfortable, nice additional touches (milk, butter, scones, prosecco). Great location 5 minutes walk from the centre of Padstow but lovely and quiet and with parking. Overall: brilliant!

“Very nice property”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a high quality property that won't disappoint. The furnishings are excellent and everything is spotless. The parking space 500m from the harbour is a real plus. The owners extra touches like the bottle of prosecco, strawberries, scones and clotted cream really made us feel welcome.

“Excellent place to stay in Padstow”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Rafters is located approx 5 mins walk from the centre of Padstow so is ideal, also it comes with a parking place which is beneficial. In effect you can park up and forget your car as you can get around without the use of a vehicle, that's how ideally located Rafters is. Rafters itself is clean, well presented and maintained, and is a great place to stay.

“Mini moon - Perfect in everyway”
Reviewed April 4, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed after our wedding at Easter for a few days.
It was perfect for a mini moon, we couldn't fault it in any way.

Rafters was clean, and perfect throughout plus we had everything we needed including a bottle of Procecco in the fridge and fresh roses! Parking is a bonus too!
The location of Rafters is perfect too, a 5min stroll into the harbour.

We couldn't recommend it enough and will be coming back soon!
