The bridge is not the problem, its going up the steps,my mobility is sadly  not as good as it was.

Might be worth a call. The bridge eliminates all the steps. But, due to Covid there is a one way system which means exiting via the old steps. They may be able to arrange exit via the bridge, depending how busy they are. e.g. a late slot when there won't be anyone behind you.

Just come away from Padstow. Boy was it busy I've seen less people  in the centre  of London. Think everyone  and there dogs were there today.And there were lots of dogs. We took about four attempts  parking. Got in ,went to the Lobster  hatchery. Then had a walk around. Our table was booked  for 3.00 pm.Can highly  recommend  Rojano.Food,service very good.My advice book in advance. Lots of people trying to get a table  without pre booking.Padstow so busy.Not sure I would  come back in the summer. 

Some photos.

Personally, I prefer to keep to the less commercialised parts of Cornwall.  Places like Newquay and Padstow are just too busy and with the current restrictions on foreign travel in force, will be even more so through the current season.

Hello Ian & Marina, the restaurant looks OK but the town and people need to be avoided.

Regards

Alan

True glad I went,the Restaurant was lovely, but the town was very busy.What I not explained  much.

I now have a mobility scooter and a blue badge. Very limited disabled parking anywhere  plus you can park if you find a bay ,but you have to pay full price.

Take care Ian. One thing I’ve learned with my father-in-law moving in with us, it’s easy to contact NHS services wherever you are in the UK. We currently have Dad temporarily registered with our surgery in MK. Just as well, as Graham took his Dad for an eye test today. Result: optician is making an urgent referral for serious cataracts, so is sending the results to the MK surgery.

Living here in Padstow I can confirm it’s not always crowded this year visitors have started early as soon as was allowed people started arriving as Cal said October is much quieter but normally so is September once the school holidays finish will see this year will probably be different .

it’s still great early mornings and evenings once the day trippers leave 

love living here

There's certainly  hot spots in Cornwall. That said because  most people  are staying  at home,there's hotshots across the country. In time it may re  balance.One things for sure my first time in Cornwall, wish I had visited  before.Truly beautiful. Not sure where we're go today,maybe  back to Looe,sure it will be a good day,despite the mist and light rain.

Although the West is my spiritual home, I changed my allegiance some 20 years ago. I prefer Pembrokeshire, as my late wife used to say it is like Cornwall 40 years ago. Here is Whitesands Bay, one of hundreds of places on this beautiful coast.

When leaving Looe by car just past the (I believe Shell) garage , on your right hand side you pass what is now a Bhuddist retreat , if poss could you snap a pic of it , it’s where we stayed when it was a B and B and we don’t have a pic we can find of it .

It’s a low cottage with gothic leaded windows ?

attached a street view pic

Can't promise we are going to head for Jamica Inn.So we may not pass the building. If we do I will try to get some photos. 

We loved it at the Jamaica Inn. Fab place.

 

We are hoping to stay over in the van the next time we are down that way.

It is many years since we stopped and had a meal at the Jamaica Inn. The meal was OK be what touched me was the remoteness of the inn.

 

That's the appeal of the place really. As you say the food and drink are nothing out of the ordinary but the location is spectacular.

 

We are booked in at the Tan Hill next month with the van on our way back from the Lake District. We don't expect the food or drink to be exceptional there either but the location should more than make up for that.
