The West Country region
North Cornwall is an area of natural beauty with its many sandy beaches with coves, rock-pools, rugged coastline and crashing waves. Cornwall has a milder climate with warmer nightime temperatures than the rest of the country. Sea temperatures can be mild up to October and sunshine is strong.
In High season it is bustling with many holiday makers enjoying an outdoors holiday when most beaches are life-guarded. In Mid to Low season a day can contain showers followed by strong sunshine. Rain will often fall overnight but then clear up by mid-morning. A wet day is often followed by a sunny evening. This part of Cornwall has numerous tourist attractions for all ages.
The village "Shop" (thats the village name!) in St Merryn has many restaurants - traditional pub food, seafood restaurant, chinese, fish and chip shop, and more! Surf shop, 2 grocery stores, petrol station, delicatessens, post office.
Padstow has many restaurants inc. Rick Steins seafood Restaurants, gift shops, galleries, pasties, ice cream, fudge, street entertainment in High season, boat fishing trips, boat trips to Puffin Island, ferry to Rock across the attractive River Camel. Crab fishing, mini-golf, tea shop/cafe and raised natural parkland beautifully overlooking the River Camel to Rock. A short walking distance further provides more views and is access to a long, sheltered sandy beach in a stunning setting where you can watch boats sail (or speed!)by, along the River Camel from and to Padstow harbour. The other side of Padstow is the Camel Trail (bike hire here) leading all the way to Bodmin, popular with cyclists.
