The local area guide to living in Padstow

The hillside town of Padstow is based in north-east Cornwall, on the bank of the Camel Estuary. Its history as a fishing port has played a significant role in its economy, although it is also an exporter of tin, sand, granite and other cargo. This trade has contributed to the area's wealth, which is evidenced by the grand medieval architecture around the town.

These buildings are nicely contrasted by a smattering of colourful cottages and beach houses - the likes of which are often seen in fishing villages. Nowadays, of course, its harbour is now more commonly used for yachting. There's also the Black Tor ferry, which runs between Padstow and Rock.

The harbour is surrounded by a selection of quaint cafes and restaurants, which connect to the town via winding cobbled paths. There you'll find gift shops, independent boutiques and art galleries. If you come in May, you'll find garlands of flowers all over the town centre thanks to the Obby Oss Festival - Padstow's annual May Day celebration.

Information about the local residents

Padstow has a small population, with only around 3,200 people living in the area. This contributes to the area's low crime rates, which are in line with much of Cornwall. The 2001 census put 99% of the populace identifying as white, though this data may underestimate the current proportion of minority ethnic groups.

House prices in the area have risen significantly over the past few years, with prices sometimes coming in at 10 times the local average yearly wage. This has led to a rise in professionals and business owners in the area, as well as a significant number of childless couples. The number of mortgage-free homeowners living in Padstow is more than twice the national average.

Nearby schools

Most primary-school-aged children in Padstow - and in the surrounding areas of St Issey, St Eval, St Merryn, Rumford and Trevone - attend Padstow School, a state school for children aged between ages 4 and 11 years. The closest independent school is Truro School, which is a mixed-sex school for children aged 3 to 18.

State secondary schooling is provided by Wadebridge School, based in the nearby town of the same name, which has specialist status as a business and enterprise college. For post-16 education, students usually attend the highly rated Truro and Penwith College, which is one of the best-rated colleges in the UK.

University students have easy access to University College Falmouth, which is based on the south coast. As a specialist arts institution, it plays an important role in the national and international creative scene.

Getting around

Padstow is well connected to the rest of the country, making it easy to reach either by driving or via public transport. There's plenty of parking provided for visitors, which is especially useful for those arriving in their cars on the Black Tor ferry.

An extensive bus network includes routes throughout Padstow and to surrounding areas, as well as connecting with key landmarks such as Newquay Airport. From here, you can fly to other areas of the UK and Europe.

Local shops

Padstow is famed for its harbour, but a short walk towards town down a few winding lanes will reveal a charming range of independent shops, art galleries and small boutiques. There are high-street favourite shops, as well as gift and craft shops and stores selling local produce.

One such local delicacy is sea food, which is a real draw for foodies. The area's famed seafood restaurants are surrounded by pubs, cafes, bistros and takeaways to tickle every tastebud.
