Enjoy Your Cornish Holiday in Padstow
You may not want to tear yourself away from Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park, Padstow. But if you can, it is well worth the effort - there is so much to see and do, virtually on your doorstep. Padstow itself, a fishing port and holiday village, everything you ever expected of Cornwall, is just down the road. Made famous by Rick Stein and the Seafood Restaurant (booking well in advance is essential), Padstow has become a gastronome's paradise.
Though fishing has always been important to Padstow, the harbour has long been an important exporter of bulk cargo, including granite and tin and now dredged sand for agriculture. Like any thriving port, Padstow's trade brought wealth to the town and today you will find much evidence of former wealth in the architecture, including medieval buildings.
Perhaps the highlight of Padstow's calendar is the famous Obby Oss May Day dance. For this festival, whose roots lie in Cornwall's very distant past, the town becomes focus of celebrations, dancing, music, fine food and a community welcoming the arrival of spring.
Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park, Padstow offers the ultimate location and facilities for the enjoyment of Padstow and a wide area of Cornwall. Visit the links page for details of local attractions.
Yet there is so much more to the area.
