Rick Stein has of­ten been crit­i­cised for turn­ing Pad­stow, a pretty lit­tle har­bour in the Camel es­tu­ary on Corn­wall’s north coast, into Pad­stein. But there are plenty of ad­van­tages to be­ing on the beaten track. Here you can en­joy the plea­sures of walk­ing the vast tidal sands from which he pulls his ra­zor clams, watch­ing the boats which bring in the lob­ster and crab, and eat­ing in his sev­eral fishy restau­rants. Across the es­tu­ary is Rock, beloved by Hooray Hen­rys in the Au­gust sea­son, and St Ene­doc where Sir John Bet­je­man is buried close to the lap­ping wa­ter. A three-bed­room house in Pad­stow’s pretty streets can be bought for £595,000 through Stratton Cre­ber (01872 240999).
