Holiday Cottages in Padstow
For a holiday that's a wonderful blend of quirky traditions and modern amenities, booking one of our Padstow Cottages should be at the top of your list. On the face of it, Padstow is a working fishing port with old-school charm and rustic character. Dig a little deeper and you'll find that this chocolate-box town has plenty to offer visitors, no matter what your interests might be.
Courtesy of Rick Stein, Padstow has become something of a hotspot for foodies. His restaurant showcases local fishing and farming in delicious dishes served in classy surroundings. You'll also find Jamie Oliver's restaurant nearby, so you won't have far to go to enjoy a special night out. Celebrity-run restaurants aside, most of our Padstow Cottages are within easy reach of some lovely pubs and inns and, of course, the ubiquitous chippies. But, if fish isn't your dish, keep an eye out for the local pasties, widely-hailed as the 'best in the west'.
What can I do on my holiday to Padstow?
If you're a wildlife enthusiast, you'll be spoilt for choice. Cornwall's temperate waters attract dolphins and seals and there are plenty of skippered trips to see them without getting too close and disturbing their natural behaviour. The Cornish coast has even been known to host a whale or two, and even, on occasion, a great white shark!
As you're by the sea, you might as well plonk yourself on one of the stunning beaches in the area - Chidley Pumps, Trevone and Harlyn beaches are all worth a visit. Sporting types might like to try their hand at surfing and there are plenty of surf schools in the area. Booking one of our holiday cottages in Padstow puts you within easy reach of all this and much more.
For those who've booked one of our holiday cottages in Padstow for the whole tribe, there are plenty of attractions for kids. The 'Obby 'Oss Festival Museum gives a superb insight into the eccentric side of Cornwall, while a trip to the National Lobster Hatchery is both informative and entertaining. If a cycle or a walk along the Camel Trail looks a bit too daunting, your little ones can still burn of some energy at the Camel Trail Adventure Park. Alternatively, Newquay Zoo is a great way to spend a day with the family.
