Padstow is small historic fishing village on the north coast of Cornwall, England famous (and perhaps spoilt) for being the residence of T.V celebrity chief Rick Stein. The town over recent years has expanded greatly, become very up market and expensive and even lost its old fashioned fishing village character, due the crowds who come because of the fame it has gained by featuring on television. Do not let this put you off, it is still a beautiful town to visit (although many now describe it as Cornish London).
