Our third visit was not a disappointment.This is a beautiful holiday home with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. From the delicious cream tea on arrival to the friendly chat on departure this clean,tidy property in a beautiful location is the ideal holiday accommodation. If you could order the weather for your stay it would be perfection.

We really enjoyed our stay at Byways. The property was a real "home from home".

Thank you for the lovely cream tea on arrival, very welcome after a long journey.. The property was spacious, clean and had absolutely everything that you might need, and Jane and Roger were extremely welcoming without being intrusive. The garden was beautiful, very private and eating breakfast on the patio was a pleasure.

The property was perfectly situated for visiting Padstow and the local beaches. We walked for miles along the coastal paths, cycled some of the Camel Trail and visited a local National Trust property. We ate in the Ring O Bells in St Issey and the Ivy House Restaurant, both of which I would recommend.

A great holiday, would thoroughly recommend Byways.
