Gwel Teg means beautiful view in Cornish and there couldn't be a more apt name for this holiday property situated as it is overlooking the stunning Padstow Estuary. The view from the front is ever changing - at this end of the estuary, at low tide, golden sandbars stretch from shore to shore, further up river, exposed mud banks provide feeding grounds for a huge variety of birds, at high tide all kinds of watercraft take to the water.  Gwel Teg is only about 100 yards from the Camel Trail - a multi-use trail following the old railway line for 17 miles from Padstow to Wadebridge and beyond. Padstow town and working harbour are a short walk away where you'll find plenty to see and do with shops and galleries to browse, cafes, pubs and restaurants to suit all requirements, a lobster hatchery and beaches.  Padstow sits right on the SW Coastal Path, one direction takes you towards Trevone Bay, Harlyn Bay and Trevose Head or you can hop on the foot ferry, cross the estuary to Rock and head onward to Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Pentire Head.  At the end of the day, you can relax and enjoy the evening sunshine in the large attractive back garden whilst planning your next day out.

Local Area

Padstow is arguably now one of the best-known of Cornwall's holiday destinations - a working harbour still retaining the character of the fishing industry while also managing to reinvent itself as a modern holiday destination. Padstow has so much to offer the discerning holiday maker, with several beaches along the Camel Estuary, where you can also have a go at a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a variety of boat trips such as fishing excursions, speedboat rides, sea-life safaris and the ever popular Jubilee Queen. You can indulge your passion for food at an excellent selection of restaurants in the town, which is now the base for a number of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth.  If you're looking for more active pursuits, you can cycle the Camel Trail, the route of the old railway line running between Padstow and Bodmin.  If walking is more your thing, there are many walking trails and routes waiting to be discovered, and if you're bringing a dog, there are plenty of dog-friendly places to explore. Gaining popularity in recent years is the Padstow Christmas Festival, now spread over four days, with cookery demonstrations, food and craft market, and entertainment.
