2 Pilots Cottages - Holiday Cottage, Hawkers Cove, Padstow, Cornwall

location

The row of cottages were originally built for the pilots who would navigate ships around the infamous Doom Bar and up the channel into Padstow.

With the tide in, the water gently laps at the rocks below the cottage, making it an ideal and safe place for swimming, while at low water, there is an expanse of sand for everyone to enjoy and over which can be taken the ‘direct’ walk into Padstow.

Just behind the cottage is the popular North Cornwall Coastal Path which runs along the Atlantic coastline and offers the most spectacular scenery.
