“The world is your oyster, it is up to you to find the pearls” – this sentiment is demonstrated perfectly in the beautiful Pearl Cottage. Nestled in Padstow’s historic heart, only moments from the harbour, this quaint, three-storey cottage has been lovingly updated, whilst retaining a traditional and welcoming feel. Surrounded by fishermen’s cottages and old merchant houses, Pearl Cottage peeps over the town’s rooftops down to the harbour below. With stylish two bedroom accommodation providing everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Padstow sits at the mouth of The Camel Estuary, a wide tidal river valley which historically provided shelter for the fishing fleets that sailed out of its harbour. Nowadays this stretch of water is mainly used by water sports enthusiasts, with sailing clubs, SUP riders and Kayakers all enjoying the waterway and the beaches that surround it. The Southwest Coast Path leads south from Padstow along the cliffs, a perfect way to enjoy the dramatic coastline on foot, whatever the weather. If you are looking for a less challenging stroll, the Camel Trail follows the estuary towards Wadebridge, hire bikes and enjoy it on two wheels, or wander along enjoying the coves and inlets along the way.
Once you have worked up an appetite, the town has a long list of places to quiet the rumbling tum. As well as several famed fine dining offerings, there are options for every palette, and let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be a seaside holiday at all without fish and chips on the harbour. Numerous foodie events throughout the year bring the town alive with celebrated chefs, don’t be surprised who you might bump into in one of the towns many watering holes!
