Made famous by Rick Stein's television series and his famous Seafood Restaurant, Padstow has become one of Cornwall's 'must visit' destinations.
However, this lovely town, perched on the west side of the Camel estuary, has much more to offer than great food.
Padstow is a colourful and ancient town. A fine example of a Cornish-fishing port, the town is largely unspoilt, where the crooked old streets slope down to the harbour and a number of fine medieval buildings. From the harbour you can watch the small fleet of daily fishing boats and holidaymakers just enjoying life cruising around on the water.
All the shopping facilities you need can be found here including gift shops, artists' studios, bookshops, grocers, newsagents, leather workshops and much more.
Padstow lies on the Camel Estuary, roughly seven miles from Wadebridge. An area of considerable natural beauty, there are beautiful bays, golden beaches and many interesting walks, particularly along the Coastal Footpath.
If you feel like being a bit more active on your holidays then Padstow offers a range of activities including walking and cycling along the famous Camel Trail or the south west coast path.
There are numerous water sports including fishing, surfing and sailing and also some great golf on the seaside links of St Enodoc, Trevose and the nearby Merlin Golf Club.
