Cherry Tree Cafe (centrally located below)
Jamie Oliver’s, Fifteen restaurant on Watergate Bay

A long break amongst the surf was just what we needed. Who needs Heathrow when you’ve got the finest azure waters, awesome waves and let’s face it, bloody sweeeeet cider in our own lovely country. 

We headed straight to Padstow for breakie in the sun; Padstow is a gorgeous little fishing port surrounded by glorious sandy beaches with no less than 7 bays within a five minute drive. Of course you have the scrumptious cornish pasties, cornish ice cream w/ clotted cream and cornish fudge, but you also have famous eateries such as those by celebrity chefs, Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth. 
We chose the adorable Cherry Tree Coffee House right on the harbour, for poached eggs, parma ham and pesto toast (ohhhh yes.) If it hadn’t of been so early, i’d of been waist deep in Rick Steins Fish & Chip’s; by far the best out there! 
After a walk around the tiny but perfectly formed town, we had ourselves a coastal road trip, stopping off at a few of our favourite bays: Harlyn Bay, TreyarnonConstantine BayBooby’s BayTrevone & Watergate Bay.

Watergate Bay is where all the photos from under ‘Fifteen’ are taken. It’s a beautiful surf beach with over a mile of sandy stretch. It’s vast, rustic and contemporary with an awesome surf school. If dollars on your side, you’d stay at the Watergate Bay Hotel & eat at Jamie Oliver’s, ‘Fifteen‘ whilst admiring the surfers. If you’re on a budget, pitch up camp at the nearby Tregurrian Campsite and tuck in to fish & chips or picnic grub. We’ve stayed there before and the hillside views are stunning!
We’d usually rent a board out and get stuck in, but my god, we couldn’t brave the numbness this early on in the year! Jay-sus!

(Outfit wish, Day 1!)
