Tucked behind the owner's property, this cosy cottage is furnished and equipped to a superb standard and provides light and airy open plan accommodation including two bedrooms, an open plan living and dining area with fitted kitchen area, and a pleasant stone patio and small lawn with gorgeous views over the fields. Padstow and Wadebridge are both close by, and the buzzing seaside and surfing resort of Newquay is only a short drive. Sandy beaches, fabulous restaurants, welcoming pubs and walking trails also make this a great base for discovering this wonderful part of Cornwall.

St Issey itself is perfectly located for a holiday break, allowing you the opportunity to get away from it all while also remaining close to the delights (particularly culinary delights) of nearby Padstow. The hamlet has its own church, pub and village shop with gorgeous sandy beaches only five miles away, where you can indulge in the three "S's" that the area has become famous for (sunbathing, swimming and surfing). The local area is also popular with walkers – there are some incredible coastal path walks offering a heady combination of Atlantic views, invigorating sea air and wonderful countryside. Padstow is certainly worth a visit; with the figure of culinary giant Rick Stein looming large over the town, it's a must for foodies but also a great place to shop and people watch. Other attractions include the ferry across the Camel estuary to Rock, or the Eden Project (just 20 miles away) – if you can tear yourself away from this lovely part of the country.
Cornwall is a region full of history, culture and unique identity. So unique in fact that Cornwall has its very own language (Kernowek), flag (St Piran's Banner) and national anthem (Trelawney). In 2014 the UK government officially recognised the fine people of Cornwall as a national minority group, meaning that Cornish heritage and traditions now join the Irish, Scottish and Welsh as a protected Celtic group.
Cornwall is proudly known as the stunning setting of the popular BBC television series 'Poldark', starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Cornwall is also proud of its famous Cornish Pasty, but has another pastry dish to offer you, the Stargazy Pie! If you don't mind a few pilchards looking at you whilst you eat, then the Stargazy Pie is the pie for you. After a pasty or a pie, or both, you might fancy a pint and Cornwall has a great choice of locally produced beers to satisfy your thirst. Try an ale from the St Austell Brewery, Skinner's Brewery or the Rebel Brewing Company to name but a few of the fine ale producers in the region. Please remember to always drink responsibly.
Here are just a couple of the great Cornish attractions you could visit:
We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
