CYCLING. The Camel Trail is on the doorstep. Either bring your own bikes and keep them in our lock up or hire from cameltrailcyclehire.co.uk. Padstow is a 30 minute walk along the mostly level trail or 10 minutes by bike. In the opposite direction, cyclists can stop off at Wadebridge or experience the entire 18 mile route to the moorland village of Blisland on Bodmin.
GOLF. There are several coastal links and parkland courses. Trevose, St. Enodoc, St. Minver at Polzeath, are all nearby.
BEACH. North Cornwall comes into its own with anything that involves the sea, river and beaches. The rugged Atlantic coast ensures fabulous surfing and sheltered coves which are a delight for families. There's also water ski-ing, kayaking, coasteering and angling…or there's always lazing, swimming and sunbathing!
WALKING AND BIRD WATCHING. The South West Coastal footpath is spectacular along Cornwall's North coast. Nearer to 'home', old Padstow can be appreciated on foot, wandering along the signed circular walk.
THINGS TO SEE AND DO. There's so much, it's question of 'what shall be do today?'. Boat trips and angling from Padstow Angling Centre, hire a pleasure boat or explore the busy, working harbour bustling with activity. There's the Lobster Hatchery, galleries, the ferry to Rock…the historic port is so much more than renowned restaurants and award winning pasty shops.
FOR KIDS. Why not try Crealy Adventure Theme Park and the local play area. For something a little more cultural, the Elizabethan Manor at Prideaux Place, Pencarrow House and Lanhydrock estate; and gardeners will be overwhelmed by the biomes at Eden and National Trust Gardens.
FEELING EXHAUSTED? Get a take-away, come back to The Barn, sit in the garden and relax…it's what your holiday is all about…enjoy!
