Situated in a tranquil location on the edge of the tidal creek in Little Petherick, Kingfishers offers a perfect retreat, nestled amidst the Saints Way footpath which meanders along the river into Padstow, a beautiful walk into the bustling harbour town. This cosy cottage features an open plan living area opening to a riverside terrace where you can relax with the sight and sound of the wildlife and water flowing. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the master including a balcony with elevated views over the creek. Kingfishers is simply a lovely base to unwind, within easy reach of the nearby town of Padstow and the surrounding area of natural beauty.


Little Petherick is quaint village, located just outside of Padstow, perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the nearby towns. Whilst the village itself is quite small, there are some lovely spots to eat and drink very close by; closest being The Old Mill House Bistro. A mile up the road to St Issey there are two more pubs to choose from, The Ring ’o’ Bells in the village centre, or The Pickwick Inn which serves delicious food whilst overlooking the Camel Estuary.

Little Petherick is positioned on the Saints Way, a scenic walking route offering a picturesque walk along the riverside into the beautiful harbour town of Padstow (otherwise a few minutes in the car). The winding streets of Padstow hide a plentiful number of pleasant surprises. This bustling town offers a vast variety of food from Rick Stein’s fine dining restaurants to fresh homemade pasties. If you’re feeling adventurous you could catch a sea life safari from the harbour or enjoy scenic views of the estuary cycling to Wadebridge for lunch along the flat Camel Trail.
