Family fun

Padstow, Dennis Cove

Padstow, Dennis Cove

Beach, river, estuary or creek, even arrive in style in Padstow.  This location has it all.  Located next to the Camel Trail just 1 km from Padstow, you can launch from the small rocky beach or opt to camp at Dennis Cove Farm Campsite which has its own slipway.  

Little Petherick Creek is a great trip, near to the put in and more sheltered than the estuary.  A beautiful journey up to Little Petherick, passing egrets and herons in a beautiful landscape.  At big spring tides (once a month) you can reach the Old Mill House pull the board up on the patio for a cream tea

The Gannel and Crantock Beach

The Gannel and Crantock Beach

One of our favourite spots and recommended for your first trip. The lower part of the Gannel River meanders gently from the Newquay boating lake through a salt marsh before it opens out on to the spectacular Crantock Beach.  It is the perfect spot for refining your technique and either playing, paddling upriver or having fun in the surf.  Suitable for all abilities dependant on local conditions.
