Padstow Town; 3 Bedroom, Two Bathroom Bungalow With Fabulous Estuary Views

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Bungalow in Padstow, Cornwall, England - Padstow At Its Best - Easy Walking To The Harbour, Local Beaches And The Camel Trail

We have a secure off-road parking bay for 1-2 cars for the sole use of guests.

FREE welcome hamper of food essentials and a bottle of wine for all bookings of seven nights duration.

Well suited to two families sharing, this recently refurbished three bedroom luxury bungalow benefits from a modern designer kitchen complete with dishwasher and washing machine, family bathroom and one bedroom with an en-suite shower room with toilet and basin.

The property is well equipped with TV, DVD and free unlimited wi-fi.

Outside, there is a good size rear garden with a bar-b-que and bench, so that you can make the most of every al fresco dining opportunity. At the front of the house there is a large terrace with a circular bench and seating for eight, from where the views of the harbour and estuary can be savoured.

The bungalow is located three or four minutes walk from Padstow harbour and even less to the Camel Trail.

From the living room, master bedroom and front terrace, you can see the white sandy beaches of Rock, the ferry making its regular estuary crossing and the plethora of sailing craft, speedboats, and fishing boats as they thread their way around the estuary. To the north, it is possible to see the surf breaking on the beaches as far as Daymer Bay and Polzeath. Turning towards the south, you can see the River Camel well beyond the old railway bridge as it winds its way towards Wadebridge. In summary, these are some of the very best views available in Padstow.

The master bedroom has two matched single beds that will be configured to your requirments before your arrival as either a super kingsize bed, or two singles. The second bedroom benefits from a double bed and has the added advantage of an en-suite shower room. The third bedroom has two single beds and there is a good quality double sofa bed in the generously proportioned living room.

Clean linen and towels are provided weekly but guests will need to bring their own beach towels. There is parking available in the secure parking bay, or on the road directly in front of the house. Check in is anytime after 3p.m. and the property should be vacated by 10a.m. on the morning of departure.

About Trevor Brewer

The bungalow has been in our family since 1956 and we have had many happy family holidays in Padstow.

We have a long tradition of outdoor eating and summer (or winter!) bar-b-ques and we have been able to make the most of this in Padstow, whether at the house, or on the local beaches.

We have also had many great days sailing, or buzzing around the estuary on a variety of boats that we have owned over the years and provided you adhere to recognised safety principles, the Camel Estuary is made for watersports enthusiasts of any variety.

We are convinced that once you have been to Padstow, you will find it hard to beat.

Trevor Brewer purchased this house in 1956

Why Trevor Brewer chose Padstow

The historic fishing village of Padstow has evolved into a chic holiday destination that boasts Rick Stein's famous “Seafood Restaurant”, as well as numerous other fine eateries. The six traditional pubs in town offer a wide selection of wines, local ales and cider, as well as exceptional, locally caught seafood.

On the opposite side of the estuary, the exclusive hamlet of Rock plays host to a huge variety of sailing and water-sports activities. The legendary white sandy beaches of the region line the shores of the estuary for miles towards the open sea.

The Camel Trail, once the route of the old steam railway, leads walkers and cyclists over five miles on a beautiful riverside pathway to the market town of Wadebridge. Locally, there is also some of the best surfing in the UK.

What makes this house unique

The harbour is a few minutes walk from the house and access to the Camel Trail even less.

Our children, (now adults) and their cousins have equally fond memories of their regular visits to Padstow over the years. As young children they built sand castles on the local fine white sand beaches that are an easy walk from the property. As the children matured, their once drag-along boats changed to sailing days on the estuary, or at Rock. Shoreside fishing became off-shore fishing trips where our legendary 15 minute Mackerel tradition spawned. To qualify, the fish has to be caught from the ocean and onto the bar-b-que within 15 minutes - a summer delicacy with few rivals.

We welcome you to our recently modernised luxury home and hope that your own Padstow traditions will start right here.

Notes on accommodation: The views that this property enjoys are due partly to its slightly elevated position from the (generally quiet) road at the front of the house but because of this, we advise that children under 5 should be closely monitored and that parents keep the front gates securely shut. Outside: Outside to the front of the property is a large terrace with bench seating that benefits from the morning sunshine and those great views. Flower beds around the property give a splash of colour throughout most of the year and at the rear of the property, the garden is largely laid to gravel for ease of maintenance and easy seating. In the afternoons and evening the back garden is bathed in sunshine, so evening bar-b-ques can be a very pleasant experience indeed. There is ample bench seating for 8 people, so the most can be made of every al fresco dining opportunity. Cleaning / Towels / Linen: Bed linen, a bath towel and hand towel will be provided for each guest and these items will be changed weekly for two week stays. Guests will need to bring their own beach towels. Other: The bungalow is newly decorated with a bright but subtle seaside theme in each room. New floor coverings and soft furnishings throughout will ensure that your stay is comfortable and luxurious. We are confident that you will not want to leave!

Excellent property and location

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and one small dog stayed for one week, the property was very comfortable, scrupulously clean and well equipped with everything we could have wished for. We were lucky enough to experience a few bright days (in mid March!) and were able to breakfast in the back garden in the morning sun and eat lunch outside in the midday sun admiring the fabulous views as well. Although the back garden is enclosed our inquisitive little dog could have probably found her way out but that wasn't a problem as there are plenty of walking areas close by. Liaising with the property owner was very easy and any queries dealt with in a very professional and efficient way. If we stay in Padstow again, we'd definitely choose Treganna again. Many thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Jayne and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at "Tregenna". With regard the security of the gardens, the entire plot has an unbroken brick built perimeter wall, accessed by secure gates both front and back and to my knowledge we have never yet had an escapee. A determined hurdler might manage it but apart from that it would have to be a canine Houdini, assuming the gates are kept shut.

Fantastic property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this property. Loved waking up to the fantastic views over the estuary and across to rock. It' only a short walk into Padstow so it made a great base explore the town and surrounding areas. The property was spacious and in really good condition. Will definitely stay here again, looking forward to booking our next trip!!

Really nice house in great location.

  • 5 of 5

Tregenna is a very comfortable home and all 8 of us enjoyed staying here very much. There was plenty of space to eat together, either inside or in the front or back gardens. The bedrooms are small but perfectly adequate for a holiday home with very comfortable beds. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the two bathrooms made a difference with so many of us. We were delighted to find such a nice, dog-friendly holiday house in Padstow. We could walk to loads of interesting places from the house, like the Camel Trail, the beach and the town. Padstow is an extremely bustling place in the height of the season, but with lots of character and lots to see and do.

Great location, lovely bungalow, beautiful vews

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in Padstow, the bungalow is such a good location, with a short (5 min) walk to the harbour and even shorter walk (3 min) to the Camel trail. The views are stunning and the bungalow is lovely and fresh with plenty of space.

Padstow and the local area is reknown for its beautiful long white sandy beaches. From the harbour, the nearest beach is about a 10 minute walk and this is where the ferry to Rock will be found at low tide since there is not enough depth of water to get to the harbour at that point. St George's Well is a secluded cove another 10 minutes along the beach, then Tregirls beach 10 minutes further again. If you get the ten minute ferry to Rock, you will have access to more miles of sandy beaches.


The best way to get to Padstow is by road but once you are at the house, you do not actually need a car at all. Newquay airport is around 13 miles from Padstow, Bodmin Parkway railway station 19 miles.


From Padstow, Bodmin town is 16 miles, St Austell 21 miles, Plymouth 53 miles and Lands End 58 miles.

Further Details:

The nearest Tesco store, which also has a cash point, is a short walk up the hill from the bungalow and in Padstow town (another short walk but downhill) there is a Spar mini-market, a Barclays Bank, Post Office, pharmacy, art galleries and a variety of designer outlet shops. There are six pubs, Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant, also his traditional fish and chip restaurant which is expensive compared to the two other competitors in town but produces excellent quality fare. There is also a good variety of other restaurants and bistros, coffe shops and ice cream bars.
