Cornwall Short Break: St Ives to Padstow

Discover the highlights of Cornwall's North Coast on a wonderful two-centre short break. 

Enjoy overnight stays in the quaint fishing towns and villages of St Ives and Padstow and follow trails through the beautiful and varied landscapes of Cornwall. Walk along the rugged clifftops and hear the wild Atlantic seas crashing against the rocks. As a contrast enjoy walks through Cornwall's beautiful rural countryside on the St Michael's Way. 

With optional easy walks from both St Ives and Padstow, and perhaps even a cycle along the Camel Trail from Padstow, this is the perfect Cornish escape to blow away those cobwebs!
