Your Wadebridge cottage is situated in the north of Cornwall and has lots to do for all the family. For those with an adventurous spirit, why not pack a picnic and head out for a bike ride on the Camel Trail, which ends at the fishing village of Padstow. Padstow has become well known for its food scene and popularity with the country’s top chefs.
While you are there, why not pick up some local produce to take back to your holiday home for dinner time. Rick Stein has a wonderful deli here, along with a bakery and much more. Though it is widely known that Chough’s sell the best pasties around!
It isn’t a Cornish holiday without a day out on the beach and this area has lots to choose from within a short drive. Daymer Day Beach in Padstow has the added draw of a ferry over to Rock, but there are many more including Hawker’s Cove Beach, Harlyn Bay and Butterhole Beach. Children will enjoy building sandcastles in the fine soft sand of the area and bigger kids and adults will have fun bodyboarding and surfing.
If you are visiting in Springtime, then pay a visit to Pentire Head, which is famed for its fields of poppies which colour the landscape in vibrant red. A perfect setting for the must have Instagram snapshot. Plus, it sits right on top of Polly Joke Beach which is a stunning cove to spend a few hours at.
There is also lots of fun to be had at the go kart circuit at nearby St Eval and The Camel Creek Adventure Park, which has plenty of rides to keep everyone happy. We’re sure it will tire out even the most energetic of little ones! They will sleep well, back at the cottage.
Of course, your holiday is the best time to indulge in a little glass of something special. Wine lovers might like to take a tour of the Trevibban Mill Cornish Vineyard, an award winning winery that Cornwall is very proud of. However, being in Cornwall, it wouldn’t be right to not mention the Haywood Cider Farm just a few miles away in St Mabyn, with 14 orchards and organised tours, there is a lot to see.
With so much to do, you’ll need to refuel. So, make sure to stop by the Atlantic Coast Express, where you can enjoy coffee and snacks on the beach with an amazing view. Or, if you are looking for something more substantial, then a special meal at Zachry’s Restaurant at Watergate Bay is the ideal way to soak up the stunning Cornish sunsets.
This area has more to offer than we can fit in and your Wadebridge self-catering cottage is a great place to explore from.
