Map & features
The Malt House dates back to the 16th Century and is one of the oldest buildings in the port of Padstow and although just a stone’s throw from the picturesque harbour, it is a peaceful haven in the heart of the town. The property benefits from a secluded entrance and a sunny courtyard garden. With around 500 years of history, this Grade II Listed building has been used for many purposes: It has been a coaching inn, a dairy, a brewery, a pub and rumour has it, even a house of ill repute!
For the last 100 years, The Malt House has been a private house. The Malt House, a former brewery, is situated in the south wing of the original house (The White Hart) and has been sympathetically converted to comfortable and spacious holiday accommodation: With two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, galley kitchen, dining and lounge areas, the house is perfect for up to 4 adults requiring self-catered accommodation in Padstow. Benefiting from the sun in the early morning until the late afternoon in the summer, the garden is a quiet, sunny spot to read or eat & drink alfresco. When the weather is not so kind, the peaceful conservatory is a great alternative, with comfortable upholstered chairs, a selection of books and a television.
The thick slate walls have seen plenty of changes, but the past is easy to see and feel with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and stone bread oven (sadly no longer in use). You can still smell the malt permeating from the centuries’ old beams. The Malt House is within walking distance of all of Padstow’s many restaurants and amenities.
