Padstow Area Tourism and Business Forum (PATBF) is a member run, non-profit making organisation aimed at promoting tourism in Padstow and the surrounding area. This organisation was formed in 2009 with the amalgamation of Padstow Area Tourism Association (PATA) and Padstow Chamber of Commerce. It covers an area from Mawgan Porth in the South, to Port Isaac in the North and as far East as Bodmin. It represents all tourism related businesses in the area including hotels, B&Bs, restaurants, shops, tourism attractions and taxi firms. One of the main roles of PATBF is to run Padstow’s Tourist Information Office (TIC). Other roles include promoting member’s businesses though websites, publications and events.
