Skye Cottage is situated in the old part of Padstow, in a very quiet street, just ten minute walk from centre of town. Parking, which is pretty rare in Padstow, is on your doorstep. The house is just nine years old but has been built in the old Cornish tradition, with slates front and the back garden is a fantastic sun trap. Within short walking distance you will be in the harbour, where all the famous restaurants of Padstow are located. Shops and pubs are also just down the road. Padstow is a perfect base from which to explore the whole county of Cornwall, not far from any of the other attractions such as Eden Project, Port Isaac, St Ives and the beaches of Trevone, Harlyn, Constantine, Treyarnon, Newquay, Watergate, Mawgan Porth and the famous coast path walk.

About Adriana Bringuenti
I am a Brazilian lady who have been living in the UK for 27 years, 23 of which in Cornwall where I have made my home and can't think of leaving this place. I have always lived in this area, first in Bloomfield, Trevone (E6352), Padstow for 12 years, where I have Skye Cottage and now in Mawgan Porth. I am married to a local chap and both my daughters were born here, where they follow on their dad's footsteps playing golf, surfing and life-guarding during the Summer.
Adriana Bringuenti purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Adriana Bringuenti chose Padstow
We built Skye Cottage from scratch on the grounds of Garslade - the house over the gate, from where I ran a B&B for 12 years. The idea was to add a couple of bedrooms to the B&B but we ended up building a proper house, which is now being rented as self-catering since we no longer own Garslade. The house has a modern feel to it, with ceramic floors downstairs and underfloor heating, and oak floors upstairs. The bathrooms upstairs also have underfloor heating.
What makes this Cottage unique
PARKING, PARKING, PARKING. PRIVATE PARKING. Sorry to bang on about it, but it's very rare in the old part of Padstow to have your own parking space, in a property that's so near all the amenities of the town. Another major attraction is that both rooms are en-suite, which is very welcomed by couples who come on holiday together. Another bathroom downstairs will let you sort out the sand you bring from the beach.

Great for couples
We have been coming to the Padstow Christmas festival for a number of years now and recently brought another couple with us. This cottage is perfect for two couples as it has two double bedrooms with en-suite facilities - not that common in Padstow.
The property itself is tastefully well appointed and comfortable, no downside whatsoever. I can fully recommend this as one of the best places to stay in Padstow.
A fabulous property and great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. The little touches of gifts were delightful. We shall return!
Skye Cottage is the ideal Padstow retreat
The overall impression is one of comfort with all mod cons and everything you could need for a lovely holiday, including complementary shortbread and beauty gift pack. Unusually there are two en suite bathrooms to the double bedrooms plus a downstairs shower room and everything is maintained to a high level, being clean and comfortable. Outside the patio has outdoor furniture and is in a lovely sheltered position. The lower level has a small grassed area and outside table and chairs. Some of the things that we find important are the car parking space for a small car at the front and the location of the cottage at the top of the town is peaceful and you only hear the church bells and the birds. We have been coming to Skye Cottage for many years and will certainly be returning in the future.
Skye cottage is perfect, truly a home from home
Skye cottage has a very clean and modern interior which benefits from both bedrooms having ensuite and as we took our dog having a secure enclosed garden was a real bonus. We would definitely return to Skye cottage and recommend it to others.
Fab cottage in a great location.
Cottage met all our expectations. The parking space and garden were particular bonuses. If we go back to Padstow, we will definitely stay at skye cottage again.
Thank you so much for your review. I'll try and arrange good weather again if you return.

Payment for short breaks of up to four nights is paid in full at the time of booking. Changeover day is Friday but I am very flexible during low season. Please contact me for alternative arrangements. No cards, sorry. A fee of £25.00/dog is also charged (maximum of two dogs). Terms & Conditions: Guests cancelling up to four weeks before arrival will receive 50% of the balance money Guests cancelling up to two weeks before arrival will receive 25% of the balance money Deposit money is non-refundable and all cancellations have to be made in writing Note: Bad weather and therefore inability to drive to Cornwall is not my fault!
