Guests looking to visit Padstow for its renowned Christmas Festival need to look no further than Paul Ainsworth’s very own boutique, adult-only townhouse hotel in the heart of Old Town Padstow.

The acclaimed British chef and his wife Emma opened the boutique hotel Padstow Townhouse in 2015, as they wanted to offer their diners at Paul Ainsworth at No.6 and Rojano’s in the Square somewhere to stay.

Each room in the adult-only hotel was decorated by Emma and interior designer Eve Cullen-Cornes, with an individual style and playfully named after a classic British sweet; from the rich green fabrics in Toffee Apple, inspired by the gardens of local landmark Prideaux Place, to the sumptuously patterned Rhubarb & Custard in deep orange and reds.

Guests can take advantage of the Kitchen Pantry, a fully-stocked kitchen offering indulgent treats, savoury snacks and light bites, alongside wines and spirits and cocktail recipes – all available via an honesty box system.

The Townhouse offers a fleet of Duchess bikes to borrow and Dubarry boots for beach walks, perfect for exploring the local area on a relaxing getaway trip exploring the picturesque Cornish coast. On arrival, guests will receive tasty in-room treats in the form of local delicacies, and as part of the turndown service, a flask of steaming hot chocolate is delivered in the evening, served alongside delightful homemade macarons.

Guests at Padstow Townhouse can spend evenings playing classic board games with a warm pot of tea and handmade cakes, as well as relax from the comfort of their guestrooms with in-room spa treatments including the ‘Island Escape’ 80-minute massage, which uses warm tiger clam shells from the Philippines and the shorter 30-minute foot and leg massage designed to relieve tired limbs after wintery Christmas walks.

Stays at Padstow Townhouse from £280 per room per night, based on two people sharing, including breakfast and VAT. To make a reservation email [email protected], call 01841 550 950 or visit
