This property is centrally located in Old Town Padstow. Originally, this was the Old Police House and has the tallest door in Padstow to accommodate the police hats worn in those days! The building comprises of two apartments and are suited only to couples and young families, due to the quiet position in the town. Each apartment has the fantastic advantage of adjoining parking for one reasonably - sized vehicle. Vans and large MPV's would probably not fit, but we can offer a discount towards parking costs if this is the case. Pets (max two dogs) are welcome. This page covers the 2 bed upstairs Apartment 1.

About the neighbourhood
Padstow is a beautiful and historic harbour town, which still supports local fishing and has all the watersports you could need within easy access. The restaurants and pubs in the area have something for everyone and the Camel Trail is fantastic for an easy days' cycling. The nearest beaches are within a 10 minute walk, and Rock can be visited via a regular ferry service. Excellent golf courses are within easy reach by car, as are all the bays in the St Merryn area.
How to get there
There are buses to Padstow from Bodmin Road Station during the day, but please check ahead. Padstow is about 30 minutes drive from the A30 and A38. Although, once in the town, a car may not be needed, it is advisable for exploring the area.
