Our Inspector's view

Built of Cornish granite some 150 years ago, this former fisherman’s cottage is rich with history and atmosphere. Old beams and fireplaces, wood recovered from boats, and church pews, all in one of Padstow’s tiny side streets. Paul Ainsworth at No 6 and Rick Stein’s Cafe are literally around the corner, and the harbour is barely a short stroll away.
