A charming Cornish self catering holiday cottage in the small village of St Issey, just three miles from the popular fishing port of Padstow on the north coast of Cornwall. An ideal location if you enjoy lazy days on the beach, walking, fishing, fine dining and relaxing! Direct access onto the Camel Trail - cycle or walk to Padstow for lunch! Tourist board rating: 3 Star.
Three delightful contemporary holiday apartments that are perfectly located in the old town of Padstow, Cornwall, and within just a short stroll from the harbour and quayside with its fantastic selection of restaurants, pubs and bistros as well as glorious beaches for lazy days. Tourist board rating: 4 Star.
One of the biggest reasons to have a self-catering holiday in Cornwall is the beautiful beaches, and Padstow does not disappoint. St George’s Cove is just a ten minute walk from town. The pristine stretch of sand goes along to Harbour Cove and Hawkers Cove. Padstow’s coastline has some impressive natural features, like the granite outcrops at Bedruthan Steps, and the multitude of rock pools at Booby’s Bay. Daymer Bay is sheltered and very family friendly, as is Harlyn Bay.
Those who like their holidays to come with plenty of excitement can cycle the Camel Trail, surf, go coasteering, or take a boat trip. You can walk from dawn to dusk and never tire of the unspoiled countryside and views from the coastal path. Anglers love the fishing opportunities, including those as simple as crabbing in Padstow’s inner harbour.
It’s not possible to talk about Padstow without mentioning its deserved reputation for amazing food – especially the seafood. Although often referred to as ‘Padstein’, Rick Stein is not the only celebrity chef in the area! Not only is there an array of unforgettable restaurants, the Padstow Christmas Festival in early December is four days of the best food and drink you will find, and a great place to do your Christmas gift and food shopping. Don’t forget the drink, because one visit to the Camel Valley Vineyard means you’ll never settle for an indifferent French or Spanish wine again!
Mere words can’t do Padstow justice. You deserve to experience the jewel in Cornwall’s crown first hand.
