Being an eye-catching old fishing port in North Cornwall, Padstow has become synonymous with fresh local Cornish delicacies. Padstow hosts the restaurants of many celebrity chefs, such as Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw. Accordingly, the area is an admired destination for tourists and locals alike. Not only as a result of these popular restaurants, but also the quaint local Cornish pubs and the charming sea front shops and stone cottages. Padstow hosts a magical Christmas festival which brings the community together, lighting up the enticing town in a delicate glow.
This striking gem on the north coast of Cornwall boasts a thriving community all year round. Padstow’s estuary not only provides stretches of white sandy beaches, but also hosts the ideal playground for water sports and boating. For those who enjoy exploring Cornwall on foot, bike or horse, the Camel Trail runs along the beautiful estuary from Padstow to Bodmin. This Coastal Path passes through Padstow and heads towards Trevose Head, from which on a clear day, you can see the entire North Coast of Cornwall.
