  • We can honestly say this is the best house we have ever stayed in ~ we have tried to add up how many properties in Padstow we have stayed in and we are guessing it's in the region of 20+ and Harbour View definitely comes out at number 1. The house had everything we wanted as well as being peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of the harbour. The beds were comfortable, the showers powerful, the kitchen was huge and I honestly had kitchen envy!
    The owner Josephine was so friendly in our email exchanges and answered all of our questions/my worries. This was our first holiday with our 5 month old Grandson and Josephine sent all the details of the beautiful cot that Louie would be sleeping in to put my Daughter-in-laws mind at rest.
    When we arrived there was a beautiful bag of gifts for us so very, very thoughtful. And Josephine even included our Grandson in this giving him his first bath toys which he had great fun with.
    We really can't praise this house and the owners enough. We would happily live in Harbour View forever more! We will definitely be back x x x

  • We had the most wonderful stay at Harbour view at the end of June it was a real home away from home and as the name suggests the most amazing views of Padstow Harbour from many of its windows and so convenient as just a minutes walk from the property you are in the main streets of Padstow old town with the harbour and its many independent shops and eateries yet far enough not to be disturbed by any noise.
    The property was spotless, very tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished with some nice artwork too, it has the most wonderful welcoming feeling with a beautiful garden for dinning alfresco or just to relax with a good book. Everything had been thought of to make your holiday stress free.
    Communication with Josephine was excellent always answering any queries promptly
    and was a pleasure to talk with.

    There are many beautiful beaches nearby, some within a short walk along the coastal path which is easy to access as just a couple of minutes walk from the back of the property, there is also the passenger ferry across to Rock with its sand dune backed beach and some very nice eateries.

    A beautiful handmade gift by Josephine and her daughter was a wonderful reminder of the memories made in this beautiful home.
    We would not hesitate to recommend this property and our only regret was that we hadn't booked longer but we very much hope to be able to return in the future.

  • This was our third stay at Harbour View, each of which have been fantastic. The house is in a great location, just a few steps from Padstow old town to the front and the south-west coast path to the rear. It’s nicely tucked away from the crowds with a great view down over the harbour.

    The house itself is in immaculate condition, very tastefully decorated and is kitted out with top quality furniture, appliances and equipment. It makes for a really relaxing ‘home away from home’ environment and is a great base for a north Cornwall holiday.

    Highly recommended!

We would highly recommend this property, Padstow is lovely and there are lots of beautiful beaches a short walk/ drive away .

  • We have stayed in this beautiful, spacious house for a number of years now. It has spectacular views and is tucked away from the hubbub of the town but is just a few steps away from the local shops and restaurants. The house is very well-furnished and is always left scrupulously clean. The owners are always very thoughtful and kind and take genuine pride in what was their family home. The garden too is well-cultivated with mature shady trees for hot days. We thoroughly recommend this lovely home for a relaxing and trouble-free stay.

  • Had a lovely Sept., long awaited break in-between lockdowns. Weather was great, scenery and views from the Living room are amazing. Quiet, relaxing and comfortable with a beautiful beach within walking distance. Approx one min walk downhill into town and shops. The cycling/walking path along the coast was very picturesque and Rick Steins fish & chips can be bought along the way. We also discovered Camel Valley sparkling wine and visited the vineyard. Will definitely return

  • Has the feel of a high-end boutique hotel more than a ‘holiday home’. Everything is top quality and beautifully presented. Property is an oasis of calm sitting above the Padstow bustle, yet hand-made pasties, local beer, or sublime fish and chips are 1 minute from the front door. Secluded beach a short coastal walk overlooking the estuary from rear of the property. Camel Valley vineyard and wine tasting a flat bike ride away along the Camel trail. Have stayed twice in past 4 years. Would strongly recommend.

  • We stayed in Summer 2020 with our two children who loved the top floor kids room. The house lends itself to a family with two lovely lounges and a big communal kitchen and large laundry/drying area. The house is very modern and clean and has all the facilities needed. The view from the terrace over Padstow and the sea is breath taking. The house is a 2min walk to the shops and harbor but still quiet and secluded. A wonderful holiday.

  • We stayed in this beautiful house in August 2020 with our young family of 5 (including a newborn at the time). For us this was the perfect location to get out and enjoy all that Padstow has to offer, being just a couple of minutes walk from the harbour side, shops and restaurants and having the choice of numerous beautiful beaches nearby. The house itself is stylishly finished, very well equipped and due to its elevated position, has great views across the Old Town and harbour. We have stayed in a number of lovely properties in Padstow over the years and can honestly say Harbour View is our favourite yet.

  • We had a great week at Harbour View - perfect for a large family with a toddler. A short stroll to the centre of Padstow and lots of excellent restaurants. No parking space at the property but this is very much the norm for a place like Padstow. Definitely recommend.

  • We are so looking forward to returning to Harbour View. A beautiful house in a wonderful location. So close to the harbour and centre of Padstow but also private and peaceful with lovely views of the estuary and sea. Fantastic location for walking, eating and just relaxing. Highly recommend it. Helpful lovely owner, property furnished to a high standard........perfect holiday.

  • We stayed in October and I really cannot recommend this place enough. We stayed with our parents and two small children. The house was immaculate and so comfy. We were so excited to get back there after fun days exploring. The location is brilliant. A short stroll into town down some steps and you are right in the middle of Padstow. We cannot wait to stay again.

  • After several visits, we know everything will be spotless and we relax completely as soon as we arrive. Quiet and peaceful, you can scarcely believe you are only yards away from the centre of this famous harbour. The colour schemes and furnishings simply enhance the whole atmosphere. Can't wait to get down there again!

  • We spent a very happy holiday in this lovely house. Delightfully themed rooms with everything provided to the highest standard. The upstairs sitting room has views over the town, harbour and the Camel Estuary beyond. It is in a quiet area yet within a few minutes walk of the harbour and centre of Padstow. Happy memories of meals on the terrace and fresh breakfast croissants. We will be back.
