After a long 7hr journey they finally arrived in Padstow, a beautiful fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall. Determined to make the most of their short stay they refueled at the Harbour Inn, followed by a fantastic meal at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant.

A bottle of wine later they decided to head back to the Metropole Hotel for some well earned rest. The following morning Alex and Matthew enjoyed a full english breakfast overlooking Padstow Harbour and the beautiful coastal village of Rock across the River Camel.

From there they had a fantastic morning meeting looking at an idyllic stone built farmhouse along with 2 unconverted barns. Alex was in his element due to his vast experience and expertise of renovating period buildings. From there they headed down to Salcombe, Devon an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which stands close to the mouth of the Kingsbridge Estuary.

After a pit stop of fish and chips at the Victoria Inn, Matthew gave Alex a quick tour of the town he knows well, due to all his family living in the area. After enjoying the stunning scenery it was time for them to make their way back to Suffolk via the A303…….a much more scenic route than the M4!
