Padstow | North Cornwall
In a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Padstow with its picturesque mixture of narrow streets, tiny cottages, pubs, cafés and restaurants and a superb range of individual shops, has evolved around its bustling harbour and quayside.
Surrounded by rugged cliffs, hidden coves and stunning beaches, Padstow and its immediate area offers much for the discerning visitor. Walk the coastal path, surf the waves, visit any of a number of renowned houses and gardens, take a boat trip along the coast, cycle the Camel Trail, or spend an hour or two in the sunshine watching the fishermen mend their nets. But take your time - there's much more from which to choose.
The area is also a paradise for walkers and cyclists with the SW Coast Path and the Camel Trail passing through the town. Providing 17 miles of level track along the riverbank to Bodmin and beyond, exploring the Camel Trail makes a great day out for families and bike hire is available in the town.
