If you are on holiday in Bude, North Cornwall and renting a self-catering holiday cottage, it’s quite likely you’ll treat yourself to a few evenings out, some nice meals at local restaurants, good village pubs or enjoy the fine dining from those celebrity chefs who have establishments in the North Cornwall region.
Why not combine a trip to the small Cornish fishing village of Padstow with a meal at one of Rick Steins Restaurants in Padstow – enjoy some of the nicest, freshest local caught fish, cooked and prepared by celebrity chef Rick Stein.
Padstow is found on the North Cornish Coast, just by the Camel estuary. An area of outstanding natural beauty with wonderful beaches coves and bays. Padstow itself is full of charm, character and history, old streets slope down to the harbour, surrounded by numerous medieval buildings with a lovely section of shops, cafés, restaurants, gifts, etc. Padstow today remains a busy working fishing village and the daily catch is always available in the local catering establishments.
Later receiving the title ‘Celebrity’ Chef from his various TV series, Rick Stein has been developing his businesses in Padstow for over 30 years with a simple philosophy, “nothing is more exhilarating than fresh fish simply cooked”… Not only can you book a table at one of Rick’s cafes, restaurants or bars in Padstow, but you can even join his ‘Seafood School’ offering 1 day or 2 day cooking courses.
If you can think you can fit it all in… then why not hire bicycles from nearby Wadebridge, cycling along the beautiful camel trail into Padstow. En-route you can stop off at Port Isaac and see the quaint coastal village where Martin Clunes brilliant TV series ‘Doc Martin’ was filmed.
A great day out for your holiday in Bude!
