An immaculate three storey maisonette in an iconic Grade II listed harbourside building, in the internationally renowned food lovers town of Padstow.Location
The property is set above the harbour of this iconic town and working fishing port, on the western side of the Camel Estuary in North Cornwall. Padstow is famous as a foodies destination and is home to celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. The town has numerous excellent eateries and is often regarded as one of Cornwall’s best gastronomic destinations, with fabulous fresh seafood landed daily.
The Camel Estuary, sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by Stepper Point and Trevose Head to the west and Pentire Point to the east, offers numerous sandy beaches and a large area of calm water, with superb bathing, sailing and water skiing. Padstow has a tidal marina and there are deep water and tidal moorings in the Estuary, making it the North Coasts premier destination for watersports enthusiasts.
There are two first rate golf courses in the area including Trevose Golf Club, overlooking Constantine Bay, to the west and St. Enodoc Golf Club to the east in the ever popular waterside resort of Rock, which is accessible by road via Wadebridge, or passenger ferry between Padstow and Rock.
Padstow has an extensive range of boutique shops and galleries, as well as a supermarket, which cater for all day to day needs. The market town of Wadebridge at the top of the Camel Estuary provides a further range of shopping and leisure facilities as well as access to the A39 and Bodmin.
The north coast provides some of the most spectacular and rugged coastal scenery in Cornwall where the Atlantic meets high cliffs and beautiful sandy beaches making it a popular destination for walkers and surfers. The South West Coastal footpath provides many miles of spectacular clifftop walks, whilst the Camel Trail, a disused railway line which runs between Bodmin Moor and Padstow, is popular with both walkers and cyclists.
Communication links to the area are excellent, with the A30 at Bodmin providing dual carriageway links to Exeter and the M5 Motorway network. There is a mainline train station at Bodmin Parkway with regular links to London Paddington.Description
