We have stayed at the woodlands country house hotel and it is soooo lovely, The owners are so sweet and Hugo (the owner) does the most fantastic breakfasts in fact has written cook books about breakfasts.
It is only minutes from padstow, so lots of restaurants very close by.
and we stumbled on it because had booked a different place, which looked lovely on their website
but when we got there it was horrible so told them we won't be staying and went to the padstow tourist office and the woodlands house hotel was in the window ass having rooms for the night and we went along on the off chance and fell in love with it as we walked through the door
Pavlov, just a warning, you will be lucky getting something short notice and just for one night, all the B&B's, hotels where we are have a 2 night policy for weekends. Good luck though and your DH is a very lucky man.
