Padstow is synonymous with Rick and Jill Stein. And if a restaurant can be a hub, then Rick’s famous Seafood Restaurant is just that, where red-aproned waiters whisk about in the airy, colourful dining room and a chandelier made of bobbing white fish creates an eye-catching start to a memorable meal. Alternatively, you can eat more simply at Rick Stein’s Café, St Petroc’s Bistro or Stein’s Fish & Chips, all equally fun. As for sleeping, choose from a variety of stylish lodgings, each designed by Jill and set in charming, whitewashed village houses.

There are lovely rooms above the Seafood Restaurant, while the cheapest are above the Café and the most expensive in St Edmund’s House, which has oak floors, American shutters and views across the Camel Estuary. There are four sunny rooms in Prospect House and a further ten in St Petroc’s, just behind it. Finally, one-bedroomed Bryn cottage, in the heart of Padstow, has estuary views, its own kitchen and a secluded garden.
