A charming property for a gorgeous Padstow getaway
The iconic harbour town of Padstow boasts a selection of charming properties and Kendra is a fine example. Set back from the bustling harbour, yet less than a five-minute stroll from the action, Kendra offers a restful stay for up to six guests.
Enchanting in style, Kendra is set over three floors. Guests will appreciate the Cornish country charm as soon as they enter the lounge. Complete with cosy woodburning stove, a sumptuous L-shaped sofa and rustic wooden flooring, the space is filled with light thanks to the dual aspect sash windows. There’s also a fully-loaded SmartTV to enjoy your favourite shows, plus Bluetooth sound system to set the scene. There’s also an elegant eating area on this middle floor. The large wooden dining table comfortably seat up to six guests, making this a great space for family entertaining and Cornish celebrations.
Up the spiral staircase and you’ll be greeted by two of the three well-appointed bedrooms. The master bedroom features its own ensuite shower room, a lavish king-sized bed, plenty of built-in storage, and comes complete with dual aspect windows, flooding this room with natural light. Bedroom two is a generously sized twin room, equally bright and airy there’s built-in storage and easy access to the family bathroom, which is also on this floor.
On the ground floor, the traditionally inspired country kitchen, with its beamed ceilings, chunky wooden worktops and granite tiled flooring is full of charm. Well-equipped for your holiday, there’s an induction hob and electric oven, integrated dishwasher and washing machine, fridge and separate freezer with an additional wine fridge. Coffee lovers will appreciate the Sage bean-to-cup coffee machine, to kickstart your day. Guests can also choose to dine down here with the second dining table and six plush chairs.
From the kitchen you can access the cosy courtyard which comes complete with chairs and a coffee table, the perfect spot for a coffee under the Cornish sun, or an evening tipple. Across the courtyard you’ll reach the third bedroom, which is in its own annex. A fabulous space for those wanting a separate dwelling away from the main house, there’s a double bed, built-in storage, plus its own ensuite shower room.
Kendra is truly a special property for your Cornish getaway. Guests should bear in mind that the location is up a slight hill, and due to the age of this property there are two spiral staircases. Dogs are welcome, however house rules requests that they must stay on the ground floor. It’s also worth noting that there’s no private parking, although on-road parking is available outside the property and you’re just a meander away from the delights of Padstow’s celebrated harbourfront.

When holidaying in Carbis Bay look no further than Carbis Bay Beach. The proud recipient of a Blue Flag award, meaning it is a super-clean beach. Perfect for families with young children, the water is just right for swimming, and usually free of surfers/body boarders. If you prefer to sunbathe and relax, the spotlessly clean beach is around a mile long. With a beautifully clear sea, this fine beach is quiet; wonderful, too, for a sunset walk.
If a spa day is up your street, try the Carbis Bay Hotel’s C Bay Spa, which also has some fantastic eateries if you need to refuel for lunch, or perhaps looking for a romantic dinner out.
Situated two miles from St Ives along the coast path, it’s a wonderful stroll. Or you can hop on the St Ives Bay line at Carbis Bay for a short but pretty train ride. For beach lovers, there are plenty to choose from… Porthmeor Beach, Porthgwidden Beach, Godrevy, Porthkidney Beach to name but a few. Families and couples will enjoy relaxing on the sand or playing in the water. St Ives Surf School offers sessions for surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding and coasteering. All great fun! If you prefer to stay a little drier though, St Ives Boat Trips run sea-life safaris to see the local dolphins and seals!
One of St Ives most well-known attractions is the Tate St Ives, which is one of only four Tate galleries in the UK and is a haven for lovers of modern art. Artists praise St Ives for its beautiful light and it has inspired many pieces.
The cobbled streets of St Ives are home to many shops, galleries and cafes and most businesses are small independents or artisans. Check out Cornwall Soapbox for handmade soaps and aromatherapy products made in Cornwall!
When visiting St Ives, there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to choose from. Porthminster Kitchen regularly receives great reviews and has a strong focus on fresh local food or head to Blas Burgerworks for a tasty handcrafted burger using ingredients sourced from the area.
St Ives sits at the bottom of the A30, so if you are looking to explore more of the Cornwall coast, then this is a great base and you can book ferries for day trips to the Scilly Isles from Penzance (only a 20 minute drive away).
