Rick Stein’s Cornish Tips

Rick Stein, Cornwall’s favourite adopted son, he’s originally from Oxford, and celebrity chef, revealed his favourite pubs, beaches, shopping places, and much more to Metro this week. His insight is ideal for anyone looking to stay at Headland Views, Newquay.

Rick, who views Cornwall as where he is from, splits his time between Cornish shores and Australia. He highlights Constantine Bay, near Padstow as his favourite beach, which is not too far from Headland Views.

He also highlights his favourite local food, unsurprisingly a Cornish Pasty – but he will not reveal the source of what he thinks is the best pasty in Cornwall, he will not want them selling out when he has the taste for one!

His top tip for first-time visitors to experience, and seasoned ones as well, is “go for a cliff walk and take in the views virtually anywhere around our beautiful coastline.” With South West Coast Path a mere few yards from Headland Views it is my recommendation as well.
