We loved the location of the cottage, it was very peaceful yet within easy reach of main roads. Loved the patio area although we didn't have the weather to use it to its potential!

A delightful stay in a lovely little cottage. Situated on the edge of the tidal Little Petherick creek, we have been lucky to be visited by 7 Moorhen chicks, egrets, curlews and ducks. A must is the walk along the Camel trail from Old Town Cove (free parking 10 mins from cottage) to Padstow for a pasty from the famous Chough bakery. Further afield, the magnificent Bodmin moor to the North and Porthcurno beach and the Minack Theatre to the South. Waterside cottage is just the perfect base for your stay in Cornwall. From the deck, you see huge fish at high tide; with foot prints from the elusive otter at low tide; this cottage is a real Cornish gem.

The cottage was cosy, comfortable and beautifully furnished. We felt very happy there and hope we can come back. The whole area is a lovely place for exploring.
Mrs Chaplin

this is a comfy cottage in a very peaceful waterside location. Although compact, for a holiday rental where you are out and about most of the time it is plenty big enough for four people. What is lacking in space is made up for by the location on a no through road beside a tidal creek. If you are interested in wildlife this is an excellent locaction for watching birds, listening to owls at night and trying to spot the otter that sneaks by at low tide. We saw the footprints after each tide but never saw their owner. All in all we had a lovely week at waterside. The only minor downer from my wife's perspective was the poor band with on the Wi Fi. It's worth noting that if you want to eat out at more than one venue you need to either walk into Padstow about 45 minute across country or 10 minutes by car and hope you can park. There are other eateries around about with some very good ones in St Meryn. We used Waves and The View. There is also Rick Steins pub The Cornish Arms, it gets busy in the evening so best to go early but the food and beer are good and not overpriced.
