Arriving in Padstow

No comments:
 
This afternoon we arrived into the picturesque cornish town of Padstow for a couple of nights away. Tomorrow my other half has a day cooking at Rick Stein's seafood school so while he is cooking up a storm in the kitchen, I will spend the day exploring the coast and maybe take a little ferry ride over to Rock. 


I have really only heard of Padstow through watching Rick Stein, and after a little while it becomes obvious that padstow is almost entirely owned by the chef, with several hotels, cafes and restaurants scattered around the town. We chose to stay in a little independent hotel to get a taste of the real town.

Once checked in, to a gorgeous little room with views over the harbour we took to the streets to wander and explore. The smell of sea, fresh fish and seagulls overhead, you couldn't feel more away from it all.

The view from our room.. 




When I was little I used to collect shells, every seaside town or beach we went to i had to leave with a little bundle of them in my pocket, this shop had me cooing with excitement, just look at all those shells!











After a relaxing wander we then headed back to the hotel for a cup of tea to warm up, and off to have Stein's Fish & Chips later, but more of that tomorrow.
