Holiday rentals and lettings in Padstow
Padstow is a simply delightful fishing village in the north of Cornwall, offering a peaceful and relaxing holiday with a strong foodie edge. The town is on the river Camel and holiday rentals on the shoreline offer divine views of the river together with the gentle sounds of the marine birds. Choose a holiday rental in the centre of town to have its excellent restaurants just steps away from your cosy bed, or if you prefer to be surrounded by the famously beautiful Cornish countryside, choose a holiday letting just outside the town, particularly to the south around Little Petherick Creek, where the holiday lettings are simply gorgeous!Pretty Cornish holiday rentals
