About Jonathan and Kim Futrell

Kim is an artist and designer, with work on sale here in Padstow. I have been a travel writer for 25 years. Some years ago we stood on Chapel Style, close to the old town, looking across the Camel Estuary and I remember saying, 'it doesn't get any better than this." We now live with that view every day. We live upstairs, above the apartment for rent. We have a dog, but there are separate entrances and separate gardens.

Jonathan and Kim Futrell purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Jonathan and Kim Futrell chose North Cornwall

We think it's one of the most beautiful houses in Padstow. It is a double fronted, red brick Edwardian property standing on a corner just two minutes from the Camel Trail and the waterside, and is fives minutes on foot to the heart of the old town with its restaurants, pubs and shops. The apartment only has two bedrooms but it is very spacious with good size rooms and high ceilings and fabulous views from the master bedroom and living room, although arguably the best view is from the dining room.

What makes this apartment unique

There is parking for one car to the rear of the property. The Camel Trail, a popular cycle route to Wadebridge and Bodmin, is just down the road. In the opposite direction are Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant and fish 'n chip shop and a host of other business. Beyond Padstow Harbour a footpath leads to one of the finest sandy beaches in Cornwall.

Notes:
The Red House Apartment offers ample space for a family of four, two couples or four friends. Owing to the height of the front garden and terrace, above the pavement, and the slope of the lawn, we do not encourage families with children under 12 years – especially toddlers. It would be too easy for active youngsters to injure themselves. If, however, parents and guardians are aware that there are potential pitfalls for over exuberant youngsters, and are comfortable that they can keep an eye on their them, children may be accepted after discussions with the owners.

May Day

Without doubt by far the biggest day in the Padstow calendar. Padstonians in distant corners of the world return for the day that is bigger and more significant for locals that Christmas and New Year combined. Not much is known of its origins, except that it goes back a long way, and that it may have had something to do with terrifying the French during the 100 Years War, although more likely it’s a rollicking, good hearted and well inebriated rite of spring. At its heart are two Obby Osseses - Red and Blue, large bitumen covered ‘Osses’ with men inside wearing garish headdresses. These and a ‘teaser’, usually female, dance around the town at the head processions of locals mostly dressed in white, manyof them playing the May Day tune on accordions and drums. The sky above the old town is a carpet of naval pennants and there is splendid May Pole in Market Square that the locals begin making months in advance. The night before, April 31, the two Osses come together for the one and only time beneath the May Pole, at what for many is the finest moment of the event.

Music In The Park

Prideaux Place is used for many events during the year but non as much fun as the annual Music In The Park. Basically an open air picnic/concert headlined by a ‘tribute’ band. This year (2015) it was Abba, and in the past there’s been Queen, The Rolling Stones. Peter Prideax-Brune is always on hand to raise a glass to the audience and once the sandwiches are all gone and the wine has been polished off it usually turns into one heck of dance. Get there early to stake out a good spot for deck chairs and a blanket. Tickets are limited so look out for the posters. June or July. Throughout the year there are tours of Prideaux Place and during the summer Cornish cream teas are served on the terrace overlooking the deer park

Padstow Christmas Festival

In just eight years the pre-Christmas December Festival has grown from a small local affair to a major regional event that books up well in advance. Over 30,000 attended last year’s festival, centered within two huge quayside marquees with even more expected this year. The 2015 Christmas Festival will be held between Thursday December 3 to 6, kicking off with the turning on the harbour Christmas lights.

The bigger of the marquees is a general Christmas market, combining regional foods with gifts. The other is for cookery demonstrations, for which there is a charge with tickets going like hot cakes (!). You’ll need to go on line to book. Expect some big names too. Last year the line-up included Michael Caines, Nathan Outlaw, local man Paul Ainsworth and Rick Stein’s son Jack who is the executive chef at the Seafood.

If there is a down side to the Festival it’s that visitors tend to concentrate their time and money on the marquees and don’t spread their goodwill around the town. The Christmas Festival began donkey’s years ago as a late night shopping day for shopkeepers, pubs and restaurants. Don’t allow the way the modern festival is staged to further impinge upon their trade. Visit the shops and pubs too. After all, without them neither the Festival would not exist.

Rick Stein

There’s no denying many don’t consider a Cornish holiday complete without a meal at one of his several restaurants. In Padstow St.Petrocs (a price down a notch from The Seafood) seems to get the price, quality and ambiance most right. For them that can’t afford the eye watering prices at the flagship Seafood restaurant, or get a table at St.Petroc’s or The Middle Street Cafe, his latest is on Newquay’s Fistral Beach (the home of west country surfing). To one side is the fish ‘n chips counter - using traditional beef dripping - with a few surprises, like grilled salmon in a sourdough baguette and a personal favourite of mine, deep fried halloumi (Greek sheep’s cheese) with chipotle relish in a sesame bun . On the other side of the restaurant Flavours from the Indian and the Far East serves spicier fare, including Goan chicken curry (a favourite of Rick’s) and Pad Thai noodles, with prawns and chicken.There’s takeaway or eat in - but you can’t book. Rick Stein Fistral, Headland Road, Newquay (01841 532700 / www.rickstein.com).

Camel Trail/Wadebridge

During school holidays the 5.5 mile section of the Camel Trail between Padstow and Wadebridge can get pretty hairy. At other times it is a delightful, car free means of reaching the nearest major commercial centre. There’s a Lidls at the end of the trail. The town has good owner occupier shops including, Dickson’s hardware, and a number of clothes shops, a bookshop, and cafes in the pedestrianised Molesworth Street. The Trail is pretty flat all the way. There is no shortage of bike rentals at either end. Just remember it’s just as much a pedestrian walk as a cycle path, with plenty of dog walkers as well.
