Holidays in Padstow

The charming fishing port of Padstow is situated on the banks of the River Camel estuary on the north coast of Cornwall. This fantastic holiday destination is popular with foodies and walkers alike. The bustling working harbour is surrounded by gift shops, galleries and a whole host of restaurants. 

Padstow's beach, St George's Cove, is located just half a mile from the harbour, and can be reached on foot. This stunning sandy beach faces the Camel Estuary and boasts fantastic views across the estuary to Rock Beach and Daymer Bay. Visitors can also enjoy walking the South West Coast Path, cycling the Camel Trail or simply meandering through the quaint village. 

Famous for its array of fantastic restaurants, Padstow is a food-lover’s haven, with Paul Ainsworth’s Number 6 Restaurant and Rick Stein’s Fish and Chips. Visitors can experience freshly caught seafood, often landed in the harbour on the very same day!

The Jubilee Queen runs one hour cruises from Padstow Harbour throughout the main season and Padstow Sealife Safaris runs 1 and 2 hour trips around the local coastline.


To the north of the town and accessible by the coast path is a super stretch of sand from St Georges Cove to Harbour Cove and Hawkers Cove. 

The walk from Padstow to St Georges Cove takes about 10 minutes with views across the estuary. Harbour Cove is just further along the coast. The walk out to the headland to Stepper Point provides the most stunning views of the estuary including Daymer Bay, Rock and up the estuary to the old Iron Bridge which is part of the Camel Trail.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. The location of Apartment 2, The Strand is great isn't it? Right in the heart of the town with those fantastic views of the harbour; you certainly don't get much closer to all of the action than this! There are quite a few steps, being over 3 floors, and they may not suit everyone, so we try to make this clear within the description, so that this can be considered at time of booking. For those considering this property who may be concerned about this, please feel free to get in contact with our knowledgeable team who would be happy to have a chat and answer any questions that you may have. Tanya, Customer Services.

Well situated apartment right on the harbour...our little one loved standing at the window watching it!! Very comfortable holiday - would love to come back!
