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 (½ 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.

Wonderful off road cycling venue, undisturbed with beautiful views and mostly flat easy cycling.

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 (¾ mile)

Padstow is perhaps best known as the home of one of Britain’s best-loved celebrity chefs, Rick Stein. Alongside the many fabulous places to eat that Padstow boasts you’ll find unique shops, friendly pubs and a busy, fun atmosphere.

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!

Fantastic

We ate here soon after Paul Ainsworth was awarded his first Michelin star and the experience more than lived up to the hype. A very relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and food which was absolutely divine. We cannot praise the team highly enough.

Our favourite restaurant in Padstow

Number 6 has become more relaxed in 2009 and we were delighted to discover that its quality and commitment to excellence remains the same as ever. We love visiting this restaurant when we are in Cornwall. It is always the best eating out experience of our holiday.

we (well our children) have been to Harlyn Surf School every summer for the last 7 years and we can vouch for it being an excellent and friendly set up with great instructors. Highly recommended.

Rick Stein's Cafe (¾ mile)

Really good food with Mr Stein’s inimitable touch, but at a price that won’t break the bank.

A great lunch in cheery comfortable surroundings. By far the best mussels & chips I've eaten in the UK and a most delicious apple juice. Excellent value.

Rojano's in the Square (¾ mile)

Set in the heart of Padstow, this classic Italian restaurant offers authentic dishes for both delivery in the local area or eat in. There is also a covered, heated terrace available year round. Recommended in the Times for the seafood pizza!

A delightful place to enjoy delicious Italian food, well prepared and delivered with excellent service.
A great place for morning coffee and biscotti.

Polzeath Beach (3 ¼ miles)

Park right on the beach (be careful of the tides), stumble out of the car - and you’re on one of Cornwall’s finest surfing beaches. Shops, ice cream parlours and cafes tumble haphazardly towards the beach.

Excellent beach. Watch the tides if you have younger children as when the tide is out there are lots of rock pools and safe , warm lagoons to explore! Great waves for body boarding.

Great for families and surfers, but not my cup of my tea at all. Too busy and difficult for non-surfers to swim.

Sandy Beach, wonderful for young and old alike

This beach is fantastic, we have been to many beaches throughout Cornwall and found this beach one of the best. It is perfect for young children (we have 3), nice sandy beach with lots of little rock pools over by the rocks to explore and for the kids to have fun. A surfers haven, my father and oldest boy took up surfing here and loved it. There are shops, toilets and places for food and drink a few moments walk away but it is not over crowded. Easy access for elderly and disabled too. A real holiday feel. Well worth a visit.

A Great Beach for Children, Dogs & Surfers

Not only a beautiful spot, but a fantastic beach for children. The rock pools that form around the edges of the bay create warm pools that are great for exploring & wallowing.
Just wrap up warm as the wind is always a bit more prominent here - hence the great surfing opportunities!

The essence of the seaside

The most perfect beach. A deep sandy bay fringed by rocks on each side. When the tide is out it leaves large shallow pools of water that are lovely for children. Also a surfing magnet.
