.There is a dining table to seat 8, and the country kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need for dining at home. Includes a rangemaster oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee machine (takes e.s.e. pods) and American style fridge freezer with ice machine.
There is also a downstairs cloakroom.

There is an outdoor tap to wash off your wetsuits, and an outbuilding with washing machine, tumble dryer and room to securely store bikes, golf clubs or surf boards away. And when the sun finally goes down, it's the perfect place for stargazing - the night sky has thousands more visible stars.


Little Petherick is a small village located in a green valley between Padstow and Wadebridge. With its historic 14th century church and old granite cottages, this is a distinctly Cornish village and a great base for a holiday in North Cornwall. The Saints Way walking path passes through, and follows Little Petherick Creek into Padstow. The Old Mill Bistro serves delicious food and is just a short walk away.

The town of Padstow is an immensely popular harbour town and is a firm favourite with visitors, with much to offer. Padstow is an historic fishing port with a maze of picturesque narrow streets of stone, colour-washed and slate cottages and a pretty working harbour. Its a great place for people watching, grabbing a proper pasty, or you can try your luck with a spot of crabbing from the quayside.

There are many activities to enjoy in this area, such as regular boat trips, scenic walks along beautiful coastal paths, crazy golf or even a spot of fishing. You can also take the foot ferry to Rock and enjoy a walk along Daymer Bay, or climb to the top of Brea Hill to take in the stunning views.

If you prefer you can also just chill out, look around the shops and art galleries, or treat your taste buds in the fantastic range of eateries. In recent years, Padstow has gained a reputation as a foodie’s heaven, with many excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs. The rise of celebrity chefs such as Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth has helped this along.

The "7 bays for 7 days" area is perfect for a "bucket and spade" family friendly holiday. The Seven Bays are Porthcothan Bay (nearest to Newquay), Treyarnon, Constantine Bay, Booby's Bay, Mother Ivey's Bay, Harlyn and then Trevone Bay (which is nearest to Padstow). Don't miss Harlyn Surf School who offer paddleboarding, coasteering, kayaking as well as surfing and equipment hire.

Besides the glorious bays, there are many rural and coastal walks, along the beaches and through the fields. The Coastal Path winds its way along the cliff tops and through the countryside. As well as the stunning views, there are many other treats including Trevose Head peninsula with its championship golf course and lighthouse.

The Camel Trail is a traffic free route following the old railway track between Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin, and is much loved by walkers and cyclists (bikes may be hired at Padstow or Wadebridge). The terrain is mostly level and offers a variety of paths of varying distance, meaning that whatever your age, or ability, everyone will enjoy the ride, The path winds its way alongside the riverbank through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its abundant wildlife.

Exceeded our Expectations

By Helen on 31-May-2024

We loved Glebe Cottage. It was fitted out to a very high standard and exceeded our expectations. Scones/jam/clotted cream waiting for us on arrival was a nice touch. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a four bedroom cottage in the Padstow area.

Could not rate this place any higher!

By Bella on 12-May-2024

We stayed at Glebe Cottage to celebrate my daughter's Hen do. The house was fantastic, peaceful location, stunning views, well equiped, extremely comfy beds, wonderful space for everyone to be sociable or time out. David was great with communication and made us feel at home on arrival. Could not rate this place any higher - it's fab and we hope to be back in the winter to snuggle with the fire blazing.

Even Better than the Photos

By Paul on 06-May-2024

We had an incredible stay at Glebe Cottage. I would recommend the property to anyone. The images are good and accurately show how lovely the property is but I would say the property is even better in person.
