On the 19th July we moved up the coast to Padstow, staying at a site close to the town, and a short cycle ride from Rick Stein’s various seafood establishments in the area. Being on a budget, and not having pre-booked several months before we opted for the Rick Stein Fish & Chip shop. Having placed our order we had to wait 30 minutes for the food to turn up, and frankly, we weren’t terribly impressed by fish & chips and squid & chips coming in at over Â£14 takeaway!
The rain came down again and made our stay at Camelford on the next day, rather uneventful, if a little damp.
Bude was our next destination, the Wooda campsite in particular. Very nice, well-managed site, perhaps even a little too professional! We only stayed there for one night, but enjoyed walking round Bude, and we did consider returning to the site a few days later. By this stage, the schools had broken up and a lot of the campsites were filling up with families and their children.
