The Old Lifeboat Station
“Unique seaside holiday base on beautiful North Cornwall coast” - VisitEngland Assessor
Hawker's Cove, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly
Our Inspector's view
Near Padstow at Hawker’s Cove - where there is a wide, sandy beach at low tide – this converted former lifeboat station retains the building’s steel rafters, winching equipment and boat-launch slipway, making for an unconventional and unforgettable destination. The area is perfect for surfers, coastal walkers and beach lovers. Padstow’s fish restaurants will be a hit with foodies.

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly
Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.
In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
