Padstow, PL28 8RP




Currently closed for winter-open spring 2023


Prideaux Place is one of the very brightest jewels in Cornwall’s crown; one of the West Country’s oldest houses remaining in habitable condition. Fourteen generations of Prideaux have lived here and each generation has added its own contribution to the house and its historic garden. This beautiful mansion sits on the hill above the busy harbour of Padstow and the grounds boast some of the finest views over its ancient Deer Park and the Camel Estuary to Rock and Bodmin Moor beyond. The Prideaux Family can trace their ancestry back to the 11th Century when they were Lords of Prideaux Castle at Luxulyan.

The café and gardens are open between 10.30am and 5pm (closed Saturdays). 
Cocktails on the Terrace during the summer months 5pm – 7.30pm  (maybe later depending on the weather).
The café will be serving Angus and Tracy’s delicious food as well as hot and cold drinks to take away or enjoy in the peace and quiet of the garden. 
There is currently no access through the East Gate (by the deer park) – please come in up the front drive. Limited free parking available. 
You are respectfully asked not to bring your own picnics. Dogs on leads are more than welcome. 

The Tearoom is fully licensed and visitors can enjoy a light lunch or cream tea sitting on the Terrace overlooking the ancient Deer Park.

There are often events here, open air concerts and Shakespeare plays, where people can picnic in the grounds, and also car rallies and art exhibitions etc.
