WHERE TO STAY
ST. PETROC'S HOTEL
4 New St, Padstow, PL28 8EA
We can’t think of a better place to lay your head than St. Petroc’s hotel. It takes inspiration from the fresh, coastal surroundings, creating a relaxed hub from which to explore the town. Think wooden beams, cosy fire places and winding stairs. Enjoy an indulgent brekkie in the rustic bistro below.
WHERE TO EAT
PRAWN ON THE LAWN
11 Duke St, Padstow, PL28 8AB
Foodies rejoice; Padstow’s culinary scene is second to none. Doubling as a fishmonger and restaurant, Prawn on the Lawn’s creative menu is as fresh as they come and changes daily. They’ve also been featured in both the Times Top 100 and the Michelin Guide. Oysters and fizz? Count us in.
WHERE TO DRINK
18 Broad St, Padstow, PL28 8EA
Celebrity chef Rick Stein’s abundance of restaurants have led many to affectionately dub the town ‘Padstein’. He’s also launched into the drinking scene with Ruby’s Bar. The ultimate in rustic charm, with a cosy interior and every gin variation you could wish for, it’s a worthy watering hole.
WHAT NOT TO MISS
TREVIBBAN MILL VINEYARD
Dark Lane, Nr Padstow, PL27 7SE
Just a stone’s throw from Padstow you’ll find Trevibban Mill. With orchards, wildflower meadow, winery and vineyards aplenty, it’s hard to find a reason not to pay this rural retreat a visit. They also have an onsite restaurant and offer tours and tasting of the estate’s produce. In the warmer months, sit on the sun drenched terrace for a well-earned alfresco drink.
