Local points of interest from Linda Prior:

Local points of interest from
Linda Prior:

  • See the rugged coastline from a different perspective and search for seals, basking sharks, puffins and dolphins on a Sea Safari boat trip from Padstow Harbour. They can even pack you a picnic and whisk you off to a hidden cove for a spot of lunch.
  • The Camel Trail runs right to Padstow. This eighteen mile stretch of level, traffic-free trail that runs along a disused railway line is a haven for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
  • Discover a lovely church, half-hidden by the surrounding sand dunes. From the 16th to the 19th century, the church had almost completely disappeared and the vicar and worshippers had to climb in through the roof for services!
  • The Rock ferry runs every 20 minutes and will transport you across the estuary to this gorgeous boating haven. Popular with the rich and famous, Rock is now home to fancy boutiques and upscale restaurants.
