Across the estuary there is Rock, the magnificent sands of Daymar and a little further, Polzeath. This is spectacular walking country with some dramatic cliffs and coastline to explore.

Padstow is one of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns and in recent years has become increasingly famous due to Celebrity Chef Rick Stein and his Seafood empire. This has boosted the town commercially and certainly put Padstow on the map for those looking for a gourmet Cornish experience. Rock, just across the River Camel, has a become a popular location because of it's great water sports and often the rich & famous (and occasionally even young royalty) can be seen drifting around! The port holds many pleasure craft, providing trips around the bay and up the river, as well as fishing boats supplying the mass of fish restaurants in the town.
Tourists first arrived in Padstow in 1899 with the arrival of the Railway, now the tramway is home to the Camel Trail. This fantastic 18 mile trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through from Padstow out as far as Bodmin, Wadebridge and even as far as Blisland on Bodmin Moor. It is eminently suitable for families and is a simply superb day out cruising along the estuary and countryside.
The Obby Oss celebrations on the first of May see the village elaborately decorated with the May Pole being the focus. Two stylised 'horses', the Old Oss and the Blue Oss dance through the streets trying to chase maidens, whilst children dress up in 'junior oss' costumes. The dancing continues until midnight when the Osses return to their separate stables. Travelling West along the coast you pass Trevose Head where sits a very pretty Lighthouse round to Constantine Bay and Bethruthan steps. On the Rock side of the River Camel you also have Daymer Bay & Polzeath, a haven for North Coast Surfers and more recently where David Cameron spent his summer holidays.

Bay Retreat Villas near St Merryn are ideally located for access to the many beaches in the area. We booked this break only a month before staying and found the staff at Cornwall cottages extremely helpful. On arriving at the villas we were told that we were staying in no 15 not 10 as booked and that it was quite normal for guests to be changed around without being advised. The villa itself was clean and comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds had memory form mattresses. The small garden area had a picnic bench. Barbeques are not allowed and I feel we should have been made aware of this on booking as this forms a large part of our self catering. Also I feel the kitchen could do with more dishes. 1 small casserole and a salad bowl limits meals. However this did not impact on a great holiday.
Guest from Wrexham stayed for 3 nights.
Lodge was lovely. Needed a car nowhere close by to walk to for an evening drink. Poor response when I reported an issue with being unable to open patio doors! Still waiting now to hear back from them! Also put in lodge 13 not 16 as originally booked.
