Padstow has this week been listed as the 8th most picturesque seaside town in the UK with the Hayle estuary (near St Ives) also listed as 17th by British newspaper METRO. 

Padstow is an historic fishing port with a maze of pretty narrow streets of stone, colour-washed and slate cottages and a lovely working harbour. The harbour is, of course, the pivot around which the whole town revolves. There are so many activities to enjoy in this area, such as regular boat trips, scenic walks along beautiful coastal paths, crazy golf or even a spot of fishing and there’s no shortage of golden sandy beaches either, where you can go rock-pooling, surfing or swimming.

Padstow also has a reputation as a foodie’s heaven, with many excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs. The rise of celebrity chefs such as Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw has helped this along.
