The rugged beauty of North Cornwall has long been the inspiration for many writers and the backdrop to many famous films, such as Poldark and the Doc Martin series with its fishing villages of Port Isaac, Port Quinn and Padstow.
A beautiful part of Cornwall that has much to offer, from the spectacular coast, historic Houses and Gardens, to galleries, world renowned restaurants, and a choice of activities including surfing, golf, sailing and horse riding.
The picturesque fishing port of Padstow, home of the famous 'Obby Oss,' has a host of galleries, gourmet restaurants and tearooms amongst its winding streets and has plenty of attractions to visit, from the historic Elizabethan grandeur of Prideaux place, set in its own deer park, to the national lobster hatchery, and the Padstow Museum.
Enjoy a game of crazy golf, with the best views over the harbour, or hire a cycle and follow the scenic Camel Trail as it winds along bedside the estuary to Wadebridge and Bodmin.
A variety of boat trips depart regularly from the harbour offering pleasure cruises, speed boat rides, fishing trips and a ferry to Rock, a well-known water sport and sailing resort, and the location of the prestigious St Enodoc golf course.
