Cornwall Short Break: St Ives to Padstow

  • Discover Cornwall's North Coast on a short break in St Ives and Padstow
  • Rugged cliff tops, peaceful and pristine coves
  • The picturesque seaside town of St Ives with its lovely sandy beach
  • Walk to St Michael’s Mount on Cornwall’s Pilgrimage Route
  • Freshly caught fish and chips at Rick Stein’s famous restaurant
Discover the highlights of Cornwall's North Coast on a wonderful two-centre short break. Enjoy overnight stays in the quaint seaside towns of St Ives and Padstow, and follow trails through its beautiful and varied landscapes. Walk along the rugged clifftops and hear the wild Atlantic seas crashing against the rocks. Or as a contrast relish a walk through Cornwall's beautiful rural countryside on the St Michael's Way leading to Marazion. With optional easy walks from both St Ives and Padstow, and perhaps even a refreshing cycle along the Camel Estuary, this is the perfect Cornish escape to blow away those cobwebs!

  • Walking the South West Coast Path

    The South West Path stretches around the south-west peninsula of England, exposing dramatic coastal scenery as the walk unfolds.  The route is split into several delightful sections as walking the entire route at once would be rather time-consuming.  This video gives you an overview of the route and how best to tackle it.
