Beautiful interiors and underfloor heating throughout welcome you as you step through the door, whilst the soft palette used throughout installs a deep sense of calm and relaxation. The amazing living spaces - including a huge open-plan kitchen and dining area - are just perfect for coming together whilst the stunning bedrooms offer a sanctuary away from the world when you need to escape. Outside, there's a wonderful, bubbling hot tub whilst outdoor dining is made possible with the huge table and Weber gas barbeque.

Nestled on the north Cornish coast, you're beautifully positioned to make the most of Padstow's amazing eateries whilst the plethora of wild, huge sandy beaches are wonderful whether you swim, surf or sunbathe.


The dreamy, oh-so-grown up sitting room will really keep you in the pink! The large, plumptuous corner sofa is just divine and there is an occasional chair to sprawl out in too - this is the ideal spot to gather in the evenings for late-night chats. There is also a Smart TV with Sky, Sky Sports and Netflix too should you need a little distraction.

A cosy snug with plenty of seating and a Smart TV with Sky, Sky Sports and Netflix is the perfect hideout for little ones whilst parents can have a little time by themselves!


The wonderfully spacious kitchen and dining room is a chef's dream. Beautifully light and airy in pale colours, the room benefits from floor to ceiling glass doors which open on to the back garden - bringing the outside in during warmer months.

The fully equipped kitchen is positioned at one end and boasts a Rangemaster range cooker with gas hob and electric ovens, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, hot stone, and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine. In addition, there's also a washing machine and tumble dryer in a separate utility room.

The huge wooden dining table easily seats ten and with gorgeous lighting overhead, it is the ideal spot for dinner parties and celebrations. A SONOS sound system is available too to play all your favourite tunes.


There are five beautiful bedrooms to choose from, two of which are on the ground floor, the rest are upstairs.

On the ground floor you'll find a master bedroom with a comfy and gorgeously pink king size bed with occasional chair, clothes rail and chest of drawers. The bay window has views over the decking. The second bedroom is a super-sweet twin bedroom with a large chest of drawers and a wardrobe.

On the first floor, there is the wonderfully spacious second master en suite bedroom in shades of pink and grey with king size bed, wardrobe, occasional chair, chest of drawers and two balconies overlooking the rolling countryside. There's also an outside bistro set of a table and two chairs, perfect for private breakfasts or a late-night tipple. In addition, there is a second king-size bedroom in shades of teal with a clothes rail and chest of drawers, and another twin bedroom with a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The layout of the bedrooms and the bathrooms makes this perfect for two families holidaying together or multi-generational family get-togethers.


The downstairs shower room has a wet room shower with overhead and handheld showers, plus a Bluetooth speaker, whilst the main bathroom upstairs has a bath with handheld shower plus a separate wet room shower with overhead and handheld showers. In addition, the upstairs master bedroom has an en suite shower. Handy for beach days, there are two outdoor showers - one in the car port and one by the side door - perfect for washing off sandy toes and wetsuits. In addition, there's another loo downstairs next to the dining room.

All the showers and bathrooms come complete with heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy and underfloor heating to keep toes toasty warm should you need it.

Of course, there's a great selection of places to eat in Padstow from Paul Ainsworth and Rick Stein to a plethora of cafes, pubs and excellent restaurants. Rick Stein's fishmonger and deli on the quayside are also worth a look. The Pig at Harlyn Bay is only a 5-10-minute drive away and a must too!

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

Very comfortable stay in a homely environment. Would recommend to single families and those bringing wider family & friends.

We were a party of 11 ranging from ages 67 to 6 months. We found St.Francis to be so well equipped and everything was of a high quality. Even though there were 5 children we walked to Trevone beach and back again, admittedly the little ones in the beach trolley. We loved the beach and the little farm shop. Padstow was so near and it was handy having the Tesco’s supermarket there and Padstow Farm shop. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property for families. We had a fabulous stay and boutique retreats and the housekeeper were very helpful.

Spacious and well appointed. we all LOVED it.

Brilliant and modern house- perfect for a weekend catching up with friends. Great facilities, well stocked kitchen (glasses, bowls etc) and a beautiful little food hamper. Great base for exploring the famous beaches and we had a fabulous meal at the Cornish Arms up the road, though book ahead!

A comfortable and spacious house in a fabulous location! Great for families and groups of friends with a beautiful beach a short walk away and very close to Padstow.

Amazing location and wonderful facilities. We'll be coming back here in years to come.

Truly fabulous retreat, is St Francis. Everything about it is quality. From exterior appearance to internal reality, including all fixtures and fittings. Bed linens and towels, crockery, the smaller incidentals.....all great quality and, oh so clean. The garden and open spaces, front and rear of the property, including the hottub and BBQ of course add to the options you have for memorable family/friends time. Just a few minutes walk to the lovely beach of Trevone Bay, our family had everything we needed.

Only 'heads up' we'd offer to other families is that a walk to Padstow, with the kids/pushchair, albeit a short distance, is not really an option without having to walk on some of those famous lanes (roads). Not such a bother really, but something we assumed (therefore our bad on the research) might have been possible. This an advisory only (if featured), do not let is put you off booking St Francis. It is a truly marvellous home that we think any party/any reason, will just love to bits.

Absolutely stunning property with all the modern luxury conveniences one would ever need. Quick 2 minute drive to the most beautiful beach in Cornwall. Very hard to depart the luxury bathrooms and expansive windows.

This property is beautiful. Very clean and tidy and well equipped. The outside areas were lovely and peaceful to relax in. There are several steps up-to the property from the parking area but otherwise perfect.

Exceptional property. Great location. Everything is done to a very high standard. We would highly recommend!

St Francis is a beautiful well equipped and well maintained house in a superb location.

A beautiful house, in a beautiful location! The farm shop is just a few steps away, and the beach an honest 6 min walk...and to a stunning beach and view. The cafe does great coffees and drinks and breakfast! And the towels in the house are indeed very fluffy! We will definitely be back! Thank you for providing such an idyllic stay! :)

A beautiful property in a great location, short walk to trevone bay which is beautiful and a short drive from padstow. We’ll definitely go back!

This property is amazing! It has everything that anyone could possibly need - plus more. From the moment you walk in, it takes your breath away. The decor is exquisite, all the rooms are so comfortable. From the fluffy white towels and robes, to the underfloor heating and massive squidgy sofas - we did not want for anything. The kitchen has everything - so spacious and well-equipped. The location is ideal, so close to the beach. Thank you from 5 Mums who arrived tired and overworked - who all left 2 days later feeling a million dollars, after a well needed period of relaxation. We will be back!

Wonderful, relaxing space to unwind and really enjoy yourself. The interior was lovely and all the added touches made it even more luxury. Would love to revisit

Loved the kitchen and outdoor spaces! The location was great too.

Stunning location with a number of easily accessible sensational beaches. Would recommend this very clean, well equipped, comfortable, beautifully maintained property. Looking forward to visiting again.

Fantastic house - beautifully furnished and in lovely location- would highly recommend!

Gorgeous place in a lovely village - we would highly recommend.

Absolutely loved Our stay in St Francis, beautiful decor, plenty of space for our large family, the hot tub was a lovely addition that got plenty of use too. We could not fault anything really, and location was just amazing with a beach on our doorstep and a lovely farm shop too!

St Francis looked good but it delivered so much more, small detail such as outdoor taps and showers provide a place to de sand before stepping in to the brilliantly spacious and laid out Californian cool styled house. We had a holiday of dreams here, so many great local beaches for Sufing and small children, Trevone the closest, Harlyn, Constantine and Boobie all a short drive. Padstow farm shop and the local village shop provided excellent fresh fruit and veg as well as the many local cafes (Trevone beach hut) the Cornish arms, the Pig at Harlyn and many more in Padstow. A place to visit again!

We had an amazing family holiday at St Francis and would have no doubts of recommending it to others. It lacks nothing from a practical or comfort point of view and the little touches are especially lovely eg dressing gowns in each room/ wonderful soft towels and amazing smells from diffusers and toiletries.… and not to be forgotten’a very substantial welcome pack!

This house was absolutely beautiful, it had everything we needed and we would love to return one day.
