Today, Padstow’s harbour is also filled with pleasure boats of all descriptions. There is a regular ferry across the river to Rock (a.k.a. Little Chelsea!) , a village which has lately been all but taken over by the young and posh from London. When asked what the best thing about Rock is a true Padstow local will oft reply, “The view!”.
Other vessels offer cruises around the bay.
It’s hard to read anything about Padstow these days without the name of a certain celebrity chef being mentioned, so we’re not going to! However, I have recently heard Padstow referred to as Padstein! Whether the town owes a debt of gratitude to the chef depends on where you’re sitting, it certainly seems to have kickstarted a quality dining revival in Cornwall as a whole, but on the other hand Padstow is now one of the least affordable places in Cornwall in terms of property prices.
Padstow is a charming working fishing port surrounded by glorious sandy beaches, at the head of the Camel River. Watching the everyday ebb and flow of harbour life is a perfect way to spend a day. This foodie destination with popular eateries such as Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, is the start and end point for the Camel Cycle Trail and a good base for water sports.
