Padstow Town

Padstow is a treasure. Nestled on the banks of the Camel Estuary, its fishing harbour is one of the only sheltered spots on the otherwise rugged North Coast. While best known for seafood chef Rick Stein this stretch of the North Coast has become Cornwalls gastronomic capital, also attracting Paul Ainsworth’s No 6, and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen at Watergate Bay, alongside our own favourites. Padstow also hosts our local Tesco supermarket, fishmongers and farm shop.
