St Issey - House

Nestled within the heart of St Issey, a hamlet just outside Padstow, you can find our Half-ARC – it's an 18th Century restoration from the award-winning Parti Architects. The interior shows off the honesty and authenticity of the building’s past through the use of exposed Cornish slated walls, original beams, restored historic fireplaces and other raw materials that combine the cottage and the contemporary together.
It's a house specifically designed for family get-togethers.
Formerly a listed Manor House, Courthouse and Mill, the building is set around the peaceful garden located at the heart of the property. It has garden rooms, an oval sun lawn an outdoor kitchen and a wood-fired hot-tub.
There are 12 en-suite king rooms and five reception spaces meaning there is plenty of room to relax, recover, dance and dine.
As you enter the entrance hall, there are two living spaces to welcome you, both with open fire places and logs to get you started. A playroom also offers children some interactive space of their own with a door out to the garden.
The kitchen is state-of-the-art, with four ovens, pizza oven, Braai and much more, there is ample opportunity to explore your culinary skills, taking advantage of ARC’s Lobby to fuel your stay and kindle your time spent together. The focal point in the room is the wood burning stove, traditionally complimenting the period features and original stone work of the room.
The dining room is a stunningly designed space connecting outside and in, with an entire glass wall which slides open to the patio and hot tub, a bar area and wine storage, and a catwalk entrance for the ultimate arrival.
Across the first, second and third floors can be found eleven out of the twelve bedrooms and bathrooms. They all have a calming décor and a relaxing ambience. Four of the bedrooms provide king-size beds, the other eight super-king size. Three of the super-kings have the option to be configured as twin rooms, and one has 2 additional trundle beds, suitable for 2 additional guests where necessary.
All bedrooms are either en-suite or have close access to their own private bathrooms, finished with Italian carved marble basins, deep soak tubs, and walk-in showers.
To the side of the Manor House is a parking area for 6 cars with a very helpful EV charger, and further space for 4 more cars is available nearby. Coach transport can be arranged (fees may apply) if required for group trips out with no driving.
From its scenery and sand to its Seafood and Sauvignon, Padstow epitomizes a serene sanctuary abundant with the simple pleasures we’ve fallen accustomed to living without in the bustle, hustle and tussle of modern life. Tucked west of the River Camel, the balmy fishing port and harbour town has become ubiquitous for its delicate dining scene and remarkable trails, dutifully set within stone’s throw of the Seven Bays, and the accompanying dramatic coastline and awe inspiring pastoral landscape of North Cornwall.
ARC is a curated and crafted collection of the most remarkable homestays, from the minds of London-based architecture studio Parti and design studio Regular Practice.
This Half-Arc is for bookings from 12 to 26 people and becomes available for last minute bookings following cancellations and spare weeks. There is a per person supplement from the 13th person onwards.
Guests can plan as much or as little as they’d like, using our online Lobby to curate their stay; from the best local breakfast delivered to your door, and a private bartender for cocktails night, to in-house yoga and a personal photographer to document the getaway.
Throughout the homes you’ll find the latest extraordinary work from our ARC Salon, an ever-updating inhouse cultural program exhibiting the artwork of emerging talent – created to support the greatest local artists, designers and thinkers. There to admire and inspire, all pieces are also available to purchase as a lasting keepsake of time well spent, together.
