People tend to associate Padstow with chef Rick Stein but the town's heaving with high quality places to eat and drink. On sunny days, the harbour area gets packed out. There's ample parking space provided but owing to its popularity it can sometimes be difficult to find a spot.
We've researched this area in every season and don't discount visiting in the less fashionable winter months. On a bright day, the area is hard to beat.
