P is for Padstow

Present day Padstow is something of a tourist mecca, but out of season it’s still a very pretty fishing village clustered above and around the natural harbour.  Quick exits are sometimes required when the crowds get too much though; these can be effected via the start of the Camel Trail, or by striking out west on the South West Coastal Path.  Rounding Stepper Point and beyond the lighthouse you can easily reach Harlyn Bay for a picnic lunch, well worth the effort as it’s the prettiest beach in this part of Cornwall.
