Easter in Padstow

We spent a very enjoyable Easter in Padstow the weather was mixed with squally showers and sunshine, we got out and about and took waterproofs with us! We walked through Padstow which was bustling with activity from children crabbing on the quayside to families pottering around the many interesting shops or taking a leisurely stroll round the picturesque harbour, and of course the distinctive boxes of Rick’s fish and chips were everywhere and the portly seagulls looked on hopefully!

Padstow is wonderful for walking we took one of our favourite walks up past Prideaux Place where you can see the deer in the park and then down through the fields towards the war memorial.  Suddenly as you descend there is the most spectacular vista of sparkling water and yellow sand of the estuary, magical!

We cycled on the scenic Camel Trail, it doesn’t matter how often we cycle along this beautiful path we always marvel at the beauty of it.  The trail runs alongside the estuary and is truly beautiful whether the tide is in or out, you can see hundreds of wading birds on the sands when the tide is out including Little Egrets!

We ate out at Pescadou for dinner and we all enjoyed our food. As the most fussy diner on the planet, my family were delighted when I chose the fillet of hake with lemon and dill sauce, saffron cakes and samphire and had no comments apart from “this is so delicious”

To round off the perfect Easter, the guests staying at Little Egret wrote very complimentary comments in the Guest Book about their stay and will be returning.
