Nearest pub

Stein's Fish and Chips (¾ mile)

Mr Stein's fourth addition to the foodie scene in this Cornish coastal town. A fish & chip restaurant as well as a takeaway serves quality local fish, as you'd expect. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner - although a battered cod for breakfast may be a bit much! They don't take reservations, but they reckon they'll fit you in.

Nearest beach

Dennis Cove (½ mile)

This little cove is situated just off the Camel Cycle Trail, so a great place to stop with a picnic en-route to Padstow. There's a mix of sand and shingle and because of the strong currents in the estuary, it's not advisable to swim here.

Nearest walk

The Camel Trail (1 mile)

The Camel Trail is a 19 mile route that follows the beautiful Camel River from Padstow, where it joins the sea in a wide estuary, to Poley’s Bridge inland, where it is merely a stream running through woodland. En-route at Nanstallon you will also find the Camel Trail Tea Rooms. Bikes are for hire from either Padstow or Wadebridge and it's a brilliant area for bird watching. Visit Wenfordbridge in spring and delight in the profusion of daffodils, snowdrops and primroses.

Wadebridge to Padstow

The Wadebridge to Padstow section of the trail is about 6 miles. Whilst you can hire bikes easily in Wadebridge the largely flat walk, which would be possible with a pushchair, makes a lovely walk. New views open up as the Camel twists and turns and the slower pace means you can spot the wildlife en route. Set off after breakfast and you will be in Padstow for lunch. A bus to Wadebrdge leaves Padstow from the old railway station on the half hour and will take you back in about 20 minutes.

Tranquil Trail

The four mile Helland to Bodmin section of the Camel Trail is much quieter than the Wadebridge to Padstow section. Park for free at Helland and follow the trail through peaceful woodland catching tantalising glimpses of the river through the canopy of trees. Wildlife abounds in this tranquil spot. Before leaving Helland go and have a look at the medieval Helland Bridge which spans the upper reaches of the River Camel.

The Camel Trail

The trail is best explored from the Pooley Bridge end which is just 2 1/2 miles from daydream cottage. Shell woods are great in the autumn and cool and shaded during the summer. Wonderful for picnics by the fast flowing river.

Nearest town

Padstow (1 ¼ miles)

This is a historic harbour town on the north coast of Cornwall, with plenty of things to do and see so holidays in Padstow are always a popular choice. As a result, Padstow cottages do book up fast so get in quick.

Holidays in Padstow are well placed for exploring by any means of transport - easily accessible by car, lots of boat moorings, or set off along the South West Coast Path by foot. If walking is your thing, you can also enjoy The Saint’s Way which takes you from the town down to Fowey on the south coast. Otherwise the Camel Trail cycleway is set along the site of a former railway line, is disabled access friendly and perfect for dog walking or horse riding too.

It’s medieval history means deep rooted traditions of local culture, played out in the form of annual festivals such as ‘Obby ‘Oss and Mummers’, or ‘Darkie’, Day. ‘Obby ‘Oss is a May fertility festival involving the obligatory maypole and dancing in the streets whereas Mummers’ is an ancient midwinter’s celebration held on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

Nowadays, Padstow is known as a foodie Mecca with an eclectic mix of high quality restaurants popping up around the harbour. Padstow is often referred to as ‘Pad-Stein’ due to the prolific influence of celebrity chef Rick Stein on the town. Seafood is of course pride of place on any dining table here, but you may prefer to takeaway fish and chips and sit in the garden of your Padstow holiday cottage.

Culinary mixed bag

Padstow seems to be a real culinary mix - we had one of the best meals we've ever had at Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 (he's just been awarded a Michelin star) and one of the worst fish and chips ever at The Old Custom House.

Highly recommend you avoid The Old Custom House.

Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 on the other hand is a fabulous dining experience.

Did I miss the point?

I had great expectations but was somewhat disappointed by Padstow. We went out of season for lunch and a mooch around the shops, but although there was one shop that caught my imagination, we weren't inspired and ended up driving to St Mawes for a pub lunch instead!

St Kew Inn (6 miles)

This 15th Century village pub was once home to the masons and craftsmen who constructed the nearby church of St James the Great. Today, you will find a welcoming bar and restaurant, with blazing fire in the winter, and a large beer garden for those balmy Cornish summer evenings. Look out for the resident ghost.

Excellent Food

The St Kew Inn does excellent food. It is not cheap but very good value for money. My wife said that the hake she had one evening was the best fish she had tasted for many years - cooked to perfection. You need to book early to get a table in the restaurant, but can also take pot luck in the bar where the tables are not reserved. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

For the quickest route to the Eden Project put the post code in to your sat nav from the cottage .if you follow the brown signs it is a lot further and slower due to traffic. Can be an expensive day out . Take a picnic.
Big queues for food and drinks.

Worth a visit

Worth a visit but look out for discount codes or vouchers as can be expensive to get in but ticket valid for a year.
Visited a few years ago so wanted to revisit to see what had changed or improved. The plants in the domes have grown in to good sized plants. A few more sculptures & places to eat.

Great for families

We've been several times and always had fun. You can get annual tickets when you gift aid your entry which is very worthwhile as it isn't cheap. Went twice over Easter week once going in as it opened and enjoying the biomes in the pouring rain! Core building also great for kids and not as busy as biomes. We went again later in the day another day and discovered that you can have an evening meal in the Mediterranean biome midweek from Easter to October which was a lovely treat and then they give you a lift back up the hill afterwards! Staying til it closes gives you a quieter time too!

A fun day at Eden

Myself and my two children (aged 4 and 7) visited Eden Project during the school holidays. We had a great day out which was enjoyed by all. The Biomes were busy at times but there was plenty of little hideaway places outside to get away from the crowd and recharge the batteries. We took our own picnic so don't know about pricing / food of the onsite eateries but I can say that the ice creams were lovely and in my opinion great value at £2 each.

September 2012

We went on a rainy day in the summer hols and understandably everyone else had the same idea so it was packed. It was nice to see the iconic biomes and interesting to look round but we thought it was very expensive for what it was - £60 for 4 of us plus we ate there so an extra £40 for that. We also seemed to spend a lot of time queuing for food, to look round the biomes, for the park and ride etc . We would go back but perhaps out of season to have chance to explore fully. We'd also look round for cheaper tickets!!

Have wanted to visit here for many years. It was quite interesting, the Biomes were amazing to look at from the outside. We bought tickets from the tourist information centre before we visited which they sell at discounted prices and also went after 3.30pm when entrance is less. The cakes in the cafe were all a bit stale, at nearly £40 for a piece of cake and a drink for 7 of us we thought they would be lovely and were not so good. Maybe it was a bad day for cake. Glad to have visited, would probably only go once.

good value with stores vouchers....

Visited for the first time 10 years ago, and of course in 10 years it HAS changed...more grown up, but we remarked to each other many times that it didn't feel as "magical" as the first time we wound our way down to the domes. The large 'flags' have gone that marked the way down the paths.....perhaps that was it? entrance was £23 each for adults & £9.50 each for kids....So to be honest we really wouldn't have visited had it not been for a certain store voucher scheme that meant we payed £5 each and the kids £2.50 each ...so we did treat ourselves to lunch..£5 for most mains with salad or new potatoes....YUMMY, filling & VERY good value, with free pitchers of water on the tables and help yourself mugs hang above - all very handy. Plenty to see and do although our kids sped around the place and ended up where they REALLY wanted to be..in the shop. A great day out though , as they slept like logs on the way home!

What a wonderful way to spend a day. The weather was perfect for us, but that didn't matter as it would be okay on a poor day at Eden. It was early in the year when we visited but still plenty to see and do.
Had lunch there and it was very good value for money.
We will be back!

We felt that £20 per adult was a lot to pay, yes there was plenty to see; however, on a wet, cold, windy day walking the outside paths was not great.The two domes well worth seeing, but again not worth £40. We came away saying to each other that we felt the Eden Project to be a great Educational Centre for children, schools and colleges to visit, there were other gardens we visited in Cornwall we felt much better value.

The biomes are amazing, and the educational centre is interesting too. Watch the film on the making of Eden. It's a good couple of hours long but worth it. With ice skating and gigs playing at this exciting venue too it makes a good day out for all the family.

Eden Sessions and Biomes

My trip to The Eden Project was amazing. I visited in the summer to see a band and included in the ticket was access to the rest of the grounds; we went early and took a trip around the Biomes before the gig started. The sound quality from the open-air gig was fantastic, I would definitely recommend going if you get the chance (but remember tickets sell out fast!).

A visit to the Eden Project is a must. The biomes which house the plants from all over the world are amazing! And if you get chance to see a gig then it will be an experience you will not forget - tickets are often sold out!
