Places to visit

The picturesque town of Wadebridge is ideally situated to visit the many beautiful places of interest in Cornwall.  Brookdale is conveniently situated just a few minutes stroll from the town centre.  So it’s easy to wander through the streets of Wadebridge and explore our wonderful market town that offers a range of pubs, restaurants, unique shops, a cinema, park with recreational facilities and a sports centre, plus lots more.

Wadebridge hosts the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Show the first weekend of June for 3 days.  We have a yearly carnival at the end of July.  During the August Bank Holiday Wadebridge is host to a 3 day Folk festival.

Why not Cycle, Walk or Canoe alongside the coastal part of the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow, which follows the River Camel towards the sea.  Then follow the trail as it winds its way through the countryside from Wadebridge to Pooley’s and Wenford Bridge and onto the foothills of Bodmin Moor.  The trail offers 17 miles of riverside and countryside cycling and walking, passing beautiful scenery and abundance of wildlife.  You can hire a variety of cycles from the 3 cycle hire shops in Wadebridge Town including www.gobycycle.co.uk. If you are feeling more adventurous, why not hire a kayak for the day to view the old railway line from the water, as well as experience all that the River Camel Estuary has to offer.

Beautiful Beaches can be found at Rock (where you can catch the ferry over to Padstow, or do some sailing or water skiing), Polzeath (renowned for its surfing) and Daymer Bay (renowned for windsurfing and sand kiting.  There is also a short walk from Daymer that will take you to St Enodoc church where Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman is buried).  On the other coast are the beaches of Trevone and Harlyn.  All these beaches are within a short drive of Wadebridge.

The Camel Estuary provides the visitor with many water sport activities, boat trips, fishing trips, beautiful beaches, coastal walks and cycling trails.  As well as an abundance of wildlife and picturesque scenery.

Coastal and Inland Walks are many and varied around the Wadebridge/Padstow/Rock areas and we hold an array of walking guides and Ordinance Survey maps to help you explore these beautiful areas.

Golf courses of St Enodoc, Trevose, Bowood Park, Lanhydrock, Lostwithiel (near Bodmin) and Roserrow are all within a short drive.  These Golf Clubs offer 9 and/or 18 holes and all with beautiful views from seascapes to woodlands, to beautiful gardens.

Historic Houses and Gardens in Cornwall are abundance.  Three of the main grand houses closes by are Pencarrow and Lanhydrock in Bodmin and the Elizabethan Manor House of Prideaux Place in Padstow.

 

Bodmin stands on the moors western edge and used to hold the unique position as being the capital of Cornwall.  This was passed over to Truro many years ago. Whilst exploring Bodmin you could visit the Haunted Jail, 2 museums where you can experience the towns turbulent past and The Courtroom Experience, a Victorian murder trial at the Shire Hall.  History is re-lived on the annual Riding and Heritage Day – a pageant of mock battles and medieval crafts.  Around Bodmin you can ride an old steam train on the Bodmin and Wenford Railway.  Or why not explore the nature trails in Cardinham Woods.

Visit the picturesque fishing village of Padstow where you can experience Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant / Bistro / Fish & chip shop, along with many other eateries.  It has unique shops and this is your port of call for a fishing trip or just a game of Krazy golf overlooking the quaint harbour.  Why not join in with the Padstow ObbyOss celebrations held on the 1st May each year.

Take a visit to the picturesque fishing village of Port Issac for a bite to eat, a gentle stroll, a coastal walk, or just to see where they film Doc Martin.
