As you open the door and step into this Georgian country home, you'll know you've arrived somewhere truly special. Set in a prominent position in Padstow's 'Old Town', you'll have enviable views over the town out to sea, whilst open fires, stripped wooden floorboards and sumptuous furnishings - in keeping with the heritage of the house yet super stylish too - makes sure this is a retreat you'll never forget. We particularly love the lighting here which has been designed and created specifically for Fentonluna by the lighting designer for SoHo House Hotels - Charlotte Packe. With a cinema room tucked in the attic, four perfectly individual bedrooms, an astonishing kitchen-come-dining room and a stylish sitting room there's bags of space, whilst outside the pretty walled garden and patio is just perfect for warmer weather.

An incredible heritage

Built in 1750, this stunning home has a unique and illustrious history as it belongs to Prideaux Place, a prestigious estate dating back to the Elizabethan era and continuously home to the same family ever since - although the Prideaux's themselves have lived in Cornwall since before the 1100's. Fentonluna was once home to the Land Agent who managed the Prideaux estate, but today it has been lovingly restored by the Prideaux-Brune family to become a gorgeously luxurious holiday home. This is a unique opportunity to have a sneaky peak into the life and history of the Prideaux-Brune family.


Lazing is chic in the stunning sitting room at Fentonluna. The original fireplace is accompanied by two oversized, comfy Loaf sofas whilst the garden views, pretty prints and mirrors all add a light, relaxed ambience. We love the original wooden floors but don't worry about chilly toes - a fab rug ensures feet are kept warm, whilst we'd love to while away an hour or two in the window seat, a la Jane Austen style.

Cinema room

Fentonluna's hidden jewel can be found at the top of the house tucked away in the eaves. An incredible cinema room awaits, complete with funky velvet seats. There's a box of games as well as a Playstation 4 (with a selection of the best games) and the screen - like a projector - can be tucked away when not used. This is a great room for kids to hide away in - leaving the lounge free for parents (a win-win situation we think), or perfect for a grown-up movie night - just add popcorn.


The incredible kitchen and dining room really is the heart of this amazing home. At the far end lies the kitchen area, complete with original flag flooring. Beautiful bespoke cabinets are in the darkest of blue, whilst a great island creates plenty of additional space plus a small kitchen bar. There's a huge American-style fridge freezer, six-ring range oven and hob and enough fantastic equipment to satisfy the pickiest of chefs.

The dining area at the front of the house has a huge table which easily sits eight - perfect for long, lazy lunches or decadent dinner parties. The open fire makes things super-cosy, the window overlooks the tranquil garden and the original exposed floorboards have been beautifully restored - a stunning mix of original features and modern touches.


Four beautifully original bedrooms await - each as stunning as the next. The master bedroom is resplendent in soft creams, crisp whites and lovely dark wood flooring with a super king size, oh-so-comfy bed. It has two huge windows so light floods in - a peaceful paradise for a lucky couple. Additionally, there's another double, swathed in shades of blue - the rich velvet throw is just gorgeous and accentuates the king sized mahogany bed. The third and fourth bedrooms are just peachy and offers flexible sleeping - they are both zip and links, meaning they can be a super king size or twin - perfect for children, friends or couples. Stairgates are provided to keep little ones safe.


There shouldn't be any arguments at bath time - there are three gorgeous bathrooms as well as an additional cloakroom downstairs. Two of the bathrooms (one green, one black-and-white) come complete with huge walk-in showers as well as deep, luxurious baths, whilst the bathroom next to the twin has a bath with hand-held shower - perfect for little ones. It also has views over the Prideaux deer park - the oldest herd of enclosed deer in the country (apart from the royal enclosure) so you'll catch a glimpse or two of deer trotting past. Each bathroom comes complete with a heated towel rail, meaning towels stay fluffy and warm.

Outdoor space

Fentonluna has a fantastic fully enclosed garden with tall walls, meaning you're completely private when relaxing outside. There's a great patio complete with dining table and chairs for a spot of alfresco dining, whilst a barbeque means you can cook up a feast too. Additionally, there's a handy summer house - complete with table tennis!


There is parking for two cars at Fentonluna, which is very rare for Padstow. The garage is adjacent to Fentonluna. Please be aware that as it is an old property, the garage is quite tight and does require good maneuvering skills. There is room for two vehicles parked one in front of the other, up to the size and height of a Volvo XC90.

Additional parking can be found on Fentonluna Lane or Tregirls Lane, opposite Prideaux Place. Alternatively, there are local car parks within Padstow.


Two well-behaved dogs are very welcome at Fentonluna. Please note, there is an additional fee per dog, per week or short break.


Fentonluna has WiFi so if you need to stay in contact with the outside world you can.

In the Area

Lucky you! Fentonluna is in such a perfect position. Located in the 'Old Town' part of Padstow, it's wonderfully quiet in summer despite being a two minute walk into the hustle and bustle of the shops and harbour. There's a great selection of places to eat from Paul Ainsworth and Rick Stein to a plethora of cafes, pubs and excellent restaurants. It also has seven sandy beaches within an easy distance.

The Camel Estuary offers plenty of water sports whilst the Camel Trail is excellent for walking and cycling, or if you're keen - run it. The coastal path is great for walks with stunning views too. Head to nearby Polzeath for great surfing, or for a spot of people watching head to glam Rock.

Unique and boutique, this gorgeous Georgian country home in the heart of Padstow is part of the Prideaux estate and offers a one-of-a-kind experience.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Fentonluna:

A comfortable, traditional family home in the heart of Padstow. Perfect location with the extra bonus of opening the curtains in the morning to deer wandering in the park next to the property. Hard to beat the location.

Fab location & great for dogs Very comfortable and homely

Great stay, great location.

Beautiful old house with bags of character in a fabulous location

Excellent location and size of property made even better with parking for 2 cars.

The house was excellent and the location great. We really enjoyed our stay.

This is our second stay at Fentonluna and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a delightfully quiet, secluded house in the middle of Padstow’s restaurants, shops and sights.

We loved the house. The location was perfect and the garden beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Beautiful house - very tastefully decorated and in a great location. Couldn’t ask for anything more - perfect place to stay in Padstow. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful retreat in a sublime location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Great for friends and family.

Our second visit and stay, and it did not disappoint! We are clearly biased, but we think Fentonluna has the best position in Padstow, close enough to the action in the town but also a couple of steps removed from the hustle and bustle, when you want peace and quiet at the end of the day. The property is blessed with a wonderful walled garden, which I am sure would be as great for children as it was for our dogs. Wonderful base for a Padstow vacation!

A nice large house in a fantastic location. Off road parking for 2-3 cars is also brilliant in this area.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location. The house was very well equipped & the children made great use of the cinema room during a rather wet week! We will definitely be staying again!

This fabulous house couldn’t be in a more perfect location. Moments from the restaurants and the coastal footpath. Beautiful, comfortable house with lovely views to the deer and the estuary over the rooftops. Just park your car and not have to get in it again til your break is up!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and will definitely be back. I was worried about staying as someone who is clinically extremely vulnerable but the house was very clean.

It was an absolute privilege to stay in such a beautiful property, in the most outstanding location. It truly felt like a dream home from home and was everything we hoped for.

We had an amazing time at Fentonluna lovely garden for dogs and grandson and lots of room inside . Hope we can go back again soon

Outstanding house in an excellent location - beautiful inside and out

A fabulous house with an unusually large garden ideally positioned in Padstow. It’s 4 bedrooms are all a really good size and have very comfortable beds.

Absolutely loved our stay - wouldn’t change a thing

An amazing house just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Padstow! We loved it and have booked again! If we could buy it we would! Very comfortable with all the facilities and equipment you need for a comfortable break.

Fentonluna gave me and the family a much needed break. It was a real home from home and enough space in the house for everyone to relax and switch off for the week. We absolutely loved it.

This is a wonderful cottage with space, comfort, convenience to Padstow, and a great lived-in feeling......perfect for wild and windy winter days but I can easily see how you could visit and stay all year around.

Beautiful - so homely, comfortable, gorgeously decorated and the beds - wow, they are best. Thank you for yet another fantastic stay.
