Winding its way gently in land, the Camel Estuary is a walkers’ dream, a sailors sanctuary, a wildlife haven and home to some of the most esteemed chefs and restauranteurs in Cornwall. It is therefore no surprise that the Camel Estuary has become a shining light of promise to those seeking relief to their increasingly busy and stressful lifestyle. More now than ever, homeowners have found themselves examining their lifestyles and finding a new understanding to what is important.
If sailing is how you find your escape, then the Camel Estuary is home to some of the UK’s most spectacular sailing waters – particularly in Rock. Rock Sailing Club in particular champions the philosophy and traditions of good seamanship. If you are unfamiliar with the waters there are a number of tour agencies providing trips which are perfect for showing you the wildlife, fishing spots, sailing routes the Camel Estuary has to offer. If your sea legs are a little wobbly and being solid ground is more in line with your version of a good time, the estuary provides some of the best cycling routes in Cornwall. In particular the Camel Trail is accessible for all age groups and ability – this easy rides takes it plenty of stunning scenery and there are a whole host of delicious places to enjoy a spot of food as you go along. For beach lovers – the famous 7 bays that surround the Camel Estuary provide all the sun, sea and sand you could ask for.
However you choose to enjoy the Camel Estuary, it is bound to work up an appetite and Padstow has put forward a very strong case for why it is the culinary capital of Cornwall. Celebrity chefs such as Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw have all chosen Padstow as the perfect location for their restaurants and this is why foodies from all over flock here each and every year.
Whilst all of the above is certainly enough of a draw to bring buyers to the Camel Estuary, the quality of property found here is also significant. Take Trevoseen, for example; a five/six-bedroom coastal home with outstanding sea views across the entirety of Trevone Bay. Striking and exceptionally spacious, the house has been designed to maximise the stunning, uninterrupted sea views. Set out over three floors, the accommodation and living spaces provide ample room to spread out, with floor-to-ceiling windows opening out onto the terrace and providing the ocean views beyond. With beautifully set-out gardens, a broad sun terrace and an excellent, recently built summer house at the bottom of the garden that’s perfect for entertaining, Trevoseen is a prime example of the quality buyers have come to expect from property in the Padstow area.
If something more rural is what you are looking for, something like Great Engollan Farm may interest you. A beautiful former farmhouse with five bedrooms in the main houseman additional one bedroom cottage – the property lends itself perfect for large families or those looking for a little additional income. On top of this add being only two miles from Porthcothan Bay, Great Engollan provides the space and lifestyle opportunities so many of us have been longing for after two years of lockdowns.
