A stunning cottage in an enviable quiet location in North Cornwall within 5-10 mins drive/20 mins cycle ride to Rock, Polzeath & Wadebridge. Padstow is easily accessed via the ferry from Rock.

Extensively renovated and modernised during the Spring of 2020, Owl Cottage is a contemporary cottage that sleeps up to 6 in 2 bedrooms with a sofa bed in the living room. The sofa bed is separate to the main living area.

The space
If your dream holiday is long days of beach life with coastal rambles, surfing waves, or relaxing on golden sandy beaches then Owl Cottage is your perfect luxury holiday hideaway. Set away from the main bustle in an idyllic quiet location but situated within only 10 minutes of the fabulous beaches of Polzeath and Rock it offers the perfect combination to get away from it all and relax. Padstow is a short ferry ride away across the Camel Estuary and the pretty town of Wadebridge is easily accessed by a short 10-15 mins car journey.

Extensively refurbished and modernised Spring/Summer 2020, Owl cottage is a contemporary, warm, and welcoming cottage set in a large garden with ample parking. It boasts two patios equipped with a hot tub, separate games room with pool table and children's games table (pool/air hockey/table football), gas BBQ, outside eating, outside seating and fire pit. There’s ample parking for several cars.

Daylight floods into the property with the large bi-fold door that opens out from the living room onto one of the patios connecting the inside with the outside way of life.

Pale washed wooden floors with sumptuous rugs against the grey modern lounge sofa combine with the log burner to make a truly warm and relaxing living space. There is a scandi style glass dinging table with feature pendant lights creating a perfect space for enjoying family meal times. Curl up in the living room and watch a film on the large screen smart TV or simply relax and take a moment to enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings.
A contemporary gloss white fully equipped kitchen with a quartz worktop provides a perfect place to prepare dinners of locally sourced food. It should be noted that the hob is an induction hob and therefore, may not be suitable for use by a person fitted with a pacemaker. A separate utility room is home to the washing machine and tumble dryer ensuring the functional chores are kept separate.

The cottage boasts 2 contemporary bathrooms both with countertop basins and electric heated towel rails to keep the towels soft and dry. The downstairs shower room is located for easy access upon return from the beach/hot tub via the side door of the property. The upstairs bathroom has a bath with a shower over for those long bubble filled soaks after a day out on the beach.

The two bedrooms are beautifully decorated with a hint of colour and soft faux fur throws for those colder evenings. Enjoy a good night’s sleep on the deep high-quality mattresses and relax onto a feather pillow. Bedroom one has a king size bed and bedroom two has two single beds. A sofa bed is also provided in one end of the downstairs living room. This is not integral to the dining and main seating area and can easily be left as a bed for the duration of your stay without any impact on your overall use of the living area.

Many little touches have been added to provide a holiday experience that takes the weight off your shoulders and allows you to relax and unwind. There is a dry robe for everyone to ensure you are warm to and from the hot tub or ideal for changing on the beach and staying warm after the dip in sea. A selection of beach items is provided: buckets/spades, bodyboards, beach boules set, bat & ball set and crabbing lines for those days spent in Padstow crabbing off the harbour walls. For the more energetic a football goal and basketball net are provided in the garden for your return after a day out.

Space for a boat trailer.

It should be noted that the property does have a very small stream running down one side of the garden and across the bottom of the garden. The water is very shallow at the bottom of a small drop. Our own house is situated nearby which has a large pond. This is completely separate to Owl Cottage but we feel our guests should be made aware of it.

A public right of way runs across the very bottom of the garden into the field beyond. This is however, very rarely used.

Please note: The hot tub is for sole use of the cottage. It is drained and cleaned between every let to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests. Every effort will be made to ensure it is accessible by Saturday evening but due to the water heating time it may, in some very rare cases, mean it won't be ready for use until the morning after your arrival.

A security deposit of £500 is payable on or before arrival. This comprises £250 cottage damage deposit and £250 hot tub damage deposit. We aim to return the deposit within 24 hours of departure.
