Padstow

Padstow is the perfect, little, British harbour town, where bright blue boats bob up and down in a quay, littered with children crabbing (invariably joined by parents showing more excitement at catching the poor crustaceans than their offspring). We often holidayed in Cornwall when I was a child and loved going to Padstow, first and foremost because it meant ... Cornish Pasties! I lived , breathed and died for them, feasting on them every day and running around on the beach and jumping big Atlantic waves in the sea to burn off this carb-laden local delicacy. I wanted to live there rather than the cold, red-brick land of Nottinghamshire and now I sort of do, next door in Devon.
