This wonderful, end-terrace cottage overlooking Little Petherick Creek, in Little Petherick, near Padstow in Cornwall can sleep up to four people in two bedrooms.

Waterside Cottage is a fantastic, end-terrace cottage in the village of Little Petherick near Padstow in Cornwall. Set mostly over the ground floor, the cottage offers a first floor double room, reached by a spiral staircase, and a cosy ground floor twin room, both featuring an en-suite bathroom and shower room. There is also an open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room.

The conservatory provides a lovely place to sit and read, while outside, an enclosed decked garden with furniture overlooks the Little Petherick Creek and there is off road parking for two cars. Waterside Cottage truly is a wonderful base for friends and families wishing to explore this wonderful part of Cornwall.


What you see is what you get
We thought we would try the north coast for a change and came across Waterside. I think whoever listed the property should revise the listing. This is not an end terrace property. Its quite small inside to say the least. The spiral staircase feels like it's about to collapse and great care must be taken going up or down. I would say not a place for kids because of the staircase. The best shower is downstairs but for light the bathroom upstairs is better. In all honesty if you want peace and the get away from people feel this is not your place. The kitchen is adequate. The internet signal is poor at the best of times. Walking is great as you can walk straight from the front door. Parking is good The local pub/hotel just a couple mins walk away is a waste of time it's only open when they feel like it. Finding a place to eat out was hard with a dog. I love the ruleing no dogs upstairs.....try to tell our dog that as she sleeps beside mother's bedside.

Too good to be true?
When I first contacted Sophie about the booking I was a little worried as she seemed too nice to be true, the pictures of the location, the walks in the area and the talk of "Large fish" in the tidal stream were all a bit unbelievable.....all were real!....Sophie couldn't have been more helpful, she answered my many questions before we got there, the location couldn't have been better. Myself partner and princess walked to Padstow, both ways, good water proof walking shoes are needed as there are small streams and tidal mud to get through but it is well worth it. (if you don't fancy the walk back just catch the 11A bus from behind Rick Steins chip shop by the carpark, it's ?2 each) we sampled many meals in the local pubs of Padstow and couldn't have felt more welcome. The fishing just off the patio was superb, mullet are tricky to catch but I think it makes it more worthwhile when you hook one....the main obstacle are the swans.....no trotting or ground baiting. One word of warning about the cottage, there are spiral stairs to the bedroom and bathroom.....you need to be agile to get up them, the downstairs bedroom has a large bathroom if you didn't fancy the climb. There are 4 restaurants/pubs within 2miles of the cottage, the Mill which is the closest wasn't open the twice we went there....the sign said open but the owners gave their excuses, we went to the Ring O Bells just up the road, lovely food and lovely people. All in all a lovely place to say run by lovely people.... we will look forward to going back there

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 real Cornish gem
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.
