Padstow, Cornwall, England
This property is centrally located in Old Town Padstow. Originally, this was the Old Police House and has the tallest door in Padstow to accommodate the police hats worn in those days!
The building comprises of two apartments and are suited only to couples and young families, due to the quiet position in the town.
Each apartment has the fantastic advantage of adjoining parking for one reasonably - sized vehicle. Vans and large MPV's would probably not fit, but we can offer a discount towards parking costs if this is the case. Pets (max two dogs) are welcome.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The minimum stay is 3 nights and Friday entry is a little later at 5.30pm. No smoking at all in the building. Pets welcome, but please note that there is no garden with the property. However, there are woods very nearby. There is quite a steep staircase up to the apartment from the hallway, and we do not recommend suitability for children under 5 for this reason, as it has an open entrance. We cannot arrange changeovers from Dec 23rd to the 27th or December 30th to January 4th
