Pretty Family Retreat, near Padstow

Mena-Gwins is a spacious and well equipped end terrace property which is only a short walk from the town and has parking for 2-3 cars. As well as a number of restaurants, including several owned by Rick Stein, Padstow also has pubs, cafes, shops and galleries, a beautiful unspoilt harbour and a maze of picturesque narrow streets leading down to the port. Mena-Gwins is situated in a cul de sac, backing onto the road leading to the town and is only a 10 minute walk down to the harbour. The coastal path out of the town follows the river Camel and this takes you to a beautiful sandy beach in the estuary. The river is also popular for water sports such as sailing and windsurfing. A short drive takes you to several superb sandy beaches and the beautiful coastal path with its spectacular rugged coastline, only a mile or two down the road. At the top of the town will be found the historic and interesting Elizabethan manor house of Prideaux Place, home of the Prideaux-Brune family, which is open to visitors during the season.

LocationPadstow

This working port is set at the mouth of Camel River Estuary, within easy reach of 7 local beaches and a ferry runs all year round across the estuary to Rock. Nearby is the famous St Enodoc golf course which has stunning views out to sea.

Just a short walk from the harbour is the National Lobster Hatchery and the start of the Camel Trail, an 18 mile purpose built route which follows a disused 19th century rail track. From the trail you can reach Wadebridge and Bodmin, and following the route of the River Camel further on the trail ends at the moorland village of St Breward.

Just 5 miles from Padstow is Crealy Adventure Park which has fantastic indoor and outdoor activities. Trevisker Farm has a 6 acre Maize Maze, with outdoor play areas and a café onsite. Prideaux Place is a beautiful Elizabethan manor where the house and gardens are open to the public, with guided tours available.

From the harbour there are a range of mini cruises and fishing trips on offer, also Sealife Safaris which gives visitors an opportunity to see dolphins, seals and basking sharks. There are lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from, as well as galleries, Cornish produce and gift shops.

This is a perfect base for walking the rugged North Cornwall coastline, and exploring the many coves and bays.

Cornwall

Cornwall is the most western part of the South West of England and is a very popular holiday destination with its array of golden sand beaches and dramatic cliff top scenery. The Cornish peninsular is bordered by sea, north, south and west with just one (land based) entrance and exit route over the eastern border to Devon. Traditionally fishing, mining and agriculture were the mainstays of the local economy but tourism has since replaced these. Cornwall boasts thousands of acres of un-spoilt moorland protected as an area of outstanding natural beauty. All year round, the 630 miles of coastal walks (preserved in part by the National Trust and Duchy of Cornwall), are enjoyed by walkers of all ages. Cornwall is known for its mild climate giving rise to the plethora of botanical & specialist gardens like the Eden project, Trelissick and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. By escaping to Cornwall you can thoroughly immerse yourself in the many contrasts that draw visitors year after year. From the picturesque fishing villages steeped in history to the iconic Eden Project, looking to the future. Survey the changing landscape from moorland to the dramatic & varied Cornish coastline. Sample the freshest gourmet offerings from the abundance of local produce or simply find a quiet spot and unwind with a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream! Wherever you choose to hang up your boots, you will never be far from the sea.

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
