Harbour Holidays Announces Addition of Rick Stein’s Old House to its Collection

Harbour Holidays this week announces the addition of the stunning former home of celebrity chef Rick Stein on Trevose Head in Padstow, Cornwall to its exclusive collection of holiday lets.


Visitors to Cornwall are being offered the chance to stay in Rick Stein’s old family home, following its recent listing as a holiday rental property with Harbour Holidays.


Holidaymakers can now stay in the stunning property which is perched on a headland overlooking Mother Ivey’s Bay, near Padstow in Cornwall.


Polventon is a large Art Deco style house built in the 1930s by the father of Rick Stein – the TV chef, author and restaurateur who is based in Padstow.


The large, whitewashed property commands a prominent position on Trevose Head, close to the historic lighthouse and the seaside villages of Harlyn and Constantine.


This unique 5-bedroom holiday home with a large modern kitchen and spacious living areas has the atmosphere of a ocean liner thanks to its Art Deco features such as a spiral stairway, raised terrace with curved railings and uninterrupted sea views. The large house also has a lawned garden and private outdoor swimming pool.


As the childhood home of Rick Stein, Polventon has appeared on several of his television programmes over the years. Food lovers enjoy the connection to the famous chef who runs several restaurants throughout the country including the original Seafood Restaurant in Padstow.


Polventon is one of hundreds of self catering properties available to rent in the area through Padstow based holiday company Harbour Holidays.


Nicky Stanley from Harbour Holidays commented: “Polventon is a truly unique property in an outstanding coastal location. It has a magical, timeless quality which makes it a perfect hideaway for a holiday on the Cornish coast.


“Rick Stein is a big presence in Padstow with several businesses to his name. Many people have seen his shows on television and visit the town to eat at his restaurants. His historical connection with Polventon adds to the originality and appeal of this property.”
