Last October, Tom and I went away for a weekend in Padstow with some of my family. We arrived just before midnight on the Friday night after a long day at work (and a very, very long journey!), and were so shattered we collapsed into bed as soon as we got to our cottage.
Unfortunately, I completely forgot to take any photos of the cottage (how annoying), so you’ll have to use your imagination!
One of our favourite things to do is wander round different places, looking at boats (yes, we’re basically elderly!), and Padstow was the perfect place to do this. We even had ice creams – though it was very chilly – to complete the full British tourist experience. Perfect.
Unfortunately, we were only in Padstow for a couple of days – we would have loved to have been there for a week to just relax by the fire in our cottage and have peaceful days out around the town.
One of the nice things about staying in a self-catering cottage is that you get to browse Rick Stein’s deli and take some delicious seafood and other bits home with you – which is definitely one of my favourite things to do!
Hopefully we will be back in Padstow soon – and I can’t wait!
