Welcome to Lantern House, Padstow, Cornwall
Flexible holiday accommodation open all year
(including Christmas and New Year)
Lantern House is one of Padstow’s original town houses dating back over 300 years. It lies in the heart of Padstow’s old town just seconds walk from the harbour and shops.
Beneath its white stone walls lies a wealth of history. From Sea Captain's residence to Private School, Padstow Telephone Exchange and now modern holiday accommodation with bags of character. Because of the versatile nature of our accommodation, we can cater for varying sized parties in our five letting units, all within one location.
To the rear of the property is a lovely sheltered courtyard from which steps lead to our private walled garden overlooking the Camel Estuary. It is unusual to find such a large garden in the heart of Padstow and our guests make full use of it.
Our homely accommodation is conveniently located for a wealth of holiday experiences. Stroll down to the harbour and book a fishing trip, hire a bike and cycle the Camel Trail, or take the short walk to one of our beautiful beaches.
You can take the ferry across to Rock and maybe encounter some dolphins on the way. Eat your way around Padstow enjoying our many famous pubs and restaurants. Get your hiking boots on and enjoy the South West coastal path. Visit Padstow’s Lobster Hatchery or stroll up to Prideaux Place, our very own Elizabethan stately home and gardens, with one of the oldest deer herds in England and all without the need of a car.
We are only too pleased to provide information on all local attractions, you can even store your bike on our courtyard.
If you book for May Day the procession passes by the front of Lantern House several times. Why not take a short break out of season; we are open all year with special offers off peak. You may be able to catch our annual Christmas Festival in early December or enjoy Padstow’s special atmosphere at New Year.
