The West Country region
Located on the North Cornwall coast, Padstow is a beautiful, working fishing port. It boasts the most picturesque harbour, coastline and spectacular scenery. Its charm lies in its unique setting, nestling on the west side of the Camel Estuary, well sheltered with quaint individual houses, cottages and shops all surrounding the busy harbour which draws visitors like a magnet. The surrounding area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with lovely cliff and country walks, and a choice of several superb sandy beaches.
History of Padstow
Padstow was originally called Petroc-Stow owing to to the Welsh missionary St Petroc, who arrived in Trebetherick around 500AD. St Petroc is still remembered in the town, as the Parish Church still bears its name. From 1899 until 1967 Padstow railway station was the westernmost point of the former Southern Railway. The station was the terminus of an extension from Wadebridge of the former Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway. Until 1964, Padstow was served by the Atlantic Coast Express – a direct train service from London – but the station was closed in 1967. The old railway line has now become the Camel Trail – a very popular footpath and cycle path with a picturesque route skirting the River Camel. One of the railway mileposts can now be seen embedded outside the Shipwright's Arms public house on the Harbour Front.
The harbour is definitely the town's main attraction. Fishing and pleasure boats are moored side by side, children fish for crabs from the slipway and a wealth of cafes and restaurants overlook the water. Traditionally a fishing port, Padstow is now a popular tourist destination. Some of its former fishing fleet remains, but it is now mainly a welcome yachting haven situated on a dramatic coastline with few easily navigable harbours. The influence of restaurateur Rick Stein can be seen in the port, and tourists travel from long distances to eat at his restaurant or cafes.
Padstow Town and Streets
Don't spend all your time at the harbour though. Walk around the quaint corners and crooked byways of Padstow and you will find the historic Parish Church, Prideaux Place, The Deer Park, several welcoming pubs and inns, a choice of restaurants including the famous Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant, plus a variety of shops to potter about in.
There are numerous restaurants in Padstow which we have listed in more detail on our Eating Out in Padstow page, but some of the most popular and well know of these include the following:
Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant
Rick Stein's St Petroc's Bistro
Rick Stein's Cafe

The Hawker's Cove Area
Hawkers Cove is a small hamlet situated about two miles from Padstow consisting of two terraces of cottages, a few detached dwellings, a coastguard station and a boathouse with a slipway which once housed the Padstow lifeboat and has now been converted into an holiday home. The first lifeboat, built by the Padstow Harbour Association, was kept at Hawker's Cove and in 1855 the Padstow branch of the RNLI was formed. A new boathouse with a roller slipway was built in 1931. By the 1960s, silting was becoming a problem and in October 1967 the Padstow lifeboat relocated to a new boathouse and slipway at Trevose Head, a few miles to the west. The row of Pilot Cottages opposite the Old Lifeboat Station are also historic, having originally built as cottages for the crews of the pilot gig boats.
