“the most beautiful and comfortable house to rent”

We rented Camel Quarry house last September for a group of friends. It couldnt have been nicer. One of the most comfortable and pretty rental houses we have ever taken, enjoyed by all our guests. Wonderful views, right in the middle of north cornwall, walking distance to Padstow. Wonderful beaches, walks, restaurants. We would definately rent this house again.

Dear Jose
Thank you! That’s so lovely to hear.
The Prawn on the Lawn restaurant has just opened another restaurant in Padstow called Barnaby’s. Almost too much choice now! I’m so pleased you did the Padstow walk. I now walk the camel trail rather than bike myself.
Best,
Emma

“Stunning house with epic views”
Reviewed 5 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

people found this review helpful

As you approach the house you realise what a unique and special location it is going to be. Located right on the Camel Trail with direct access to the trail and under an hour walk to Padstow and views across the camel estuary. When we arrived for our hen do it was quite overwhelming. There was 6 bottles of decent bubbles as a welcome gift from the housekeeper Dee (who lives at the bottom of the house tucked away). The house is vast with nooks here and there and rooms everywhere. Designed to a high spec and great attention to detail with unique art work - the owner clearly has great taste.The socialising space Kitchen/Diner/living space/terrace at the top of the house was the showstopper with immaculate views and just really well laid out. Pretty perfect for a hen weekend where having space to hang out together as a group was a essential to making it work. Equally most of us were parents and commented on how great it would be to come as a big family - especially as there are nice flat walks and the access to the Camel Trail on the doorstep. All in all a really fantastic weekend. The house spoke for itself. And then the aftercare from Dee when I left my coat and scarf - posted back to me within the week.Highly recommend for whatever your situation.

Dear Nicola,
Thank you. I’m so pleased you and your hens enjoyed the house! I apologise for my late response but I’ve only just got the hang of trip advisor!
Dee is indeed a gem. Much appreciated by me and all the guests!
I hope you’ll come back one day with any additions to your family and you can introduce them to the delights of The Camel Estuary. We had quite a few little ones the other day and they spent their time shrimping and collecting mussels in the estuary!

“Amazing house and grounds - sensational views, lots to do”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

people found this review helpful

The views are sensational and constantly changing with the light. The house is stunning and comfortable - and worked well for our group of 12 plus dog. The gardens and setting are lovely - with a fun and quirky feel to the garden, a hot tub located to enjoy fabulous sunset, and the superb Camel Estuary trail 5minutes walk from the house. It is 2.3 miles to Wadebridge (and shops) and 3miles to Padstow and it's restaurants - as well as the coastal trail with lovely beaches. We loved it! As a multi age group that hikes, cycles, explores and loves food, we couldn't have chosen a better place - and our teenagers loved using the kayak and wet suits available to borrow. Only, take heed the long drive/farm track may be seriously challenging for low swung cars - I emptied excess passengers from my estate car to keep from scraping it's bottom. We all would highly recommend the Camel Quarry House.

Dear USfamily group,
Thank you for a lovely review. We’ve just added 2 SUP boards to the kayaks. I know the drive is a bore, being a farm track too, but it’s just been relevelled, so much better.
I hope we see you again.

“Stunning House in Outstanding Location”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
4
people found this review helpful

Camel Quarry House is a wonderful, contemporary house built with the highest quality materials and expertly designed to maximise its outstanding location, set high above the beautiful Camel Estuary. The main living area with 360-degree views of the Estuary and surrounding countryside is on the top floor and has full-length glass windows on three sides, one of which opens onto a large furnished terrace with BBQ. The spacious bedrooms (mostly ensuite with more wonderful views) are on the lower two floors together with a media room (great choice of DVDs) and a gym in the lower basement. The house is superbly equipped for large groups (including a large walk in fridge and two dishwashers) and the very helpful Housekeeper lives on site providing daily cleaning and being available to deal with any problems. The feature garden with interesting sculptures, a hot tub and a fire pit leads down to the Camel Trail path (the former railway line for the old quarry) which runs between Padstow and Wadebridge and offers beautiful walks in both directions. The drive to the house which runs through five fields could be a challenge in bad weather for some cars but we managed it in a mini without any problems (as instructed we left the porche at home)! We had a wonderful week in this stunning house and would highly recommend it. Thank you, Emma, for allowing us to share your little piece of paradise!

“Amazing house, extraordinary setting and complete relaxation”

I was part of a group of friends who stayed at Camel Quarry House and I was bowled over by the architecture of the house, its fantastic garden and dramatic setting. Overlooking the Camel Estuary, one can spend hours looking at the tides, clouds, boats and birds. Or one can go on never ending excursions and discover this beautiful area. We were amazingly looked after during our stay and enjoyed every moment. I found it very difficult to return to reality....
