Walk - Padstow and Prideaux Place
3.0 miles (4.8 km)
The Meadow, Padstow - PL28 8AG The Meadow, Padstow
With views over the River Camel, this short but enjoyable walk heads inland from Harbour Cove and passes the Tudor Mansion of Prideaux Place on the way back into Padstow. A good walk in autumn, when the stubble of the fields above Harbour Cove provides rich pickings for migrant birds such as bunting, wheatear and pipit. Look out for merlins hunting them, overhead, or the high-speed dive of a peregrine.
There is an Easy Access walk that covers the first part of this walk; it starts and ends at the Railway Car Park and takes you as far as Gun Point. Total length 2.6 miles.
