Padstow – cross it off your bucket list

Padstow is a simply delightful fishing village in the north of Cornwall, offering a peaceful and relaxing holiday with a strong foodie edge. The town is on the river Camel and holiday homes on the shoreline offer divine views of the river together with the gentle sounds of the marine birds. Choose a holiday home in the centre of town to have its excellent restaurants just steps away from your cosy bed, or if you prefer to be surrounded by the famously beautiful Cornish countryside, choose a holiday home just outside the town, particularly to the south around Little Petherick Creek, where the holiday homes are simply gorgeous!

Pretty Cornish holiday homes

Attractive, whitewashed houses feature heavily in the homes in and around Padstow, together with the grey slate roof traditional to the area. You’ll find holiday homes which are brightly decorated with myriad varieties and colours of flowers, surrounded by kaleidoscopic gardens, and comfortable, cosy living areas to curl up in and relax in the evenings. Holiday homes in Padstow are most commonly for 2-6 people, perfectly suiting couples and most family groups.

The area and getting around

Delightful Cornish destination

Reaching Padstow may take a little longer than some other UK holiday destinations, but there is no doubt that it is worth every moment of the trip. Enjoy the scenic journey along the Cornish roads until you reach the coast and your exciting holiday location. Once there, make your way to the marina and savour the sights of the yachts moored there, and what remains of the still-working fishing harbour which supported Padstow for much of its long history.

More than a fishing village!

Padstow has a wonderful, sweeping beach and coastline with a rugged natural beauty. Enjoy long walks along the sand dunes or explore the coves that line the coast until you find the perfect spot for a clandestine picnic with nobody else within sight or sound. Treyarnon beach is a great place to start your exploration. It has rock pools, beauteous views and a coastal path behind that takes you on a journey of the senses.

Travellers and activities

Padstow for foodies

Made famous by the internationally renowned chef Rick Stein, whose TV programmes were filmed at one of his restaurants which is in Padstow, food lovers can experience outstandingly palatable food in multiple venues across the town. Although Rick Stein’s menu is very fish-focused, many other restaurants in town offer a wide and varied menu. Try Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 for delights which include delicious vegetarian choices, or The Old Mill Bistro for cracking traditional fayre.

Padstow for families

If you can drag your children off the beautiful beaches of Padstow, you’ll find that there is lots of fun to be had in the town and surroundings. The National Lobster Hatchery, for instance, is a wonderfully educational working lobster farm where children can learn about the life cycle of a lobster and how they’re cared for as they grow.
