"This is as close as you’ll come to your own private boutique hotel"The Sunday Times


Padstow is a fine example of a Cornish-fishing port. The town is largely unspoilt, with a beautiful harbour. There are good shopping facilities, a cinema, cafes and restaurants, including the famous “Seafood Restaurant” run by Rick Stein and many old and friendly public houses, most of them serving pub food and ‘real ale’.


Around the harbour you will find craft and gift shops, artists’ studios, book- shops, grocers, newsagents, leather workshops, a home-made fudge shop and much more.


Padstow itself lies on the Camel Estuary, about seven miles from Wadebridge. The area is one of considerable natural beauty with beautiful bays, golden beaches and many interesting walks, particularly along the Coastal Footpath.


This is all easily accessible from Mesmear’s self catering accommodation.  Just a couple of minutes on the ferry from Rock makes Mesmear ideally located to enjoy the bustle of Padstow combined with the tranquillity of the North Cornish coast.  It is luxury all round here, so bring back your locally caught fish and cook up your own storm in our beautifully appointed kitchens!
