Padstow, Cornwall


Last updated at 14:16 06 April 2005

Back in 2002 my family stayed at Davidstow in North Cornwall. One day we drove to Wadebridge, the weather was gorgeous and we hired two bikes for my wife and myself.

My son-in-law brought bikes for his wife and two sons Sam aged 7 and Harry aged 1. We cycled the 7 miles to Padstow on the beautiful scenic route which I believe was on an old railway line. We had races of course, I cannot remember who won!

Had the famous Cornish Pasties for lunch and peered through Rick Stein's windows! What a magic place Padstow is. I hadn't been there for 40 years having gone there in the 50's several times when we used to stay at Newquay.

After a nice relaxing walk around the town we picked up the bikes and returned to Wadebridge and to me it was the highlight of the holiday, surpassing my trip to the Bude Jazz festival.
