Wadebridge is an historic market town which was a busy river port in times gone by. There is an excellent variety of independent and boutique shops including a Supermarket within a very short walk or drive a selection of traditional pubs, restaurants and cafes and a leisure centre including a swimming pool and a cinema all within 1 mile. The latter is just a 5 minute stroll has the latest films but old fashioned comfy seats!
Waterside is a great location for exploring the beautiful North Cornwall coast with the lovely sandy beach at Rock and the magnificent surfing beach at Polzeath just two of the amazing beaches nearby. The delights of Padstow or rugged Bodmin moor (how about some geocaching?) are within 6 miles.
There is an interesting Sea Life Centre in Newquay and the Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay offers adrenalin sports such as kite surfing and surf tuition. Culinary experiences abound in the area including the renowned Jamie Oliver 15 Restaurant at Watergate bay. Or perhaps enjoy Fish and Chips or a meal at one of Rick Steins famous eateries in Padstow or the visit the 2 Michelin Starred chef Nathan Outlaw at his new fish kitchen in Port Isaac. Perhaps you will see Doc Martin being filmed? Or visit the stunning locations from Poldark? Tintagel with its legends of King Arthur is an easy morning trip, as well as the lovely old harbour at Boscastle. Also, there is plenty of National Trust and English Heritage Properties locally and the beautiful house and gardens to explore at Llanhydrock are not to be missed.
The South coast is only 30 minutes drive away. The fantastic Eden project is a short car journey and has something for everyone. Garden lovers will want to visit the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan. The city of Truro with its lovely Cathedral and most High Street shops is also well worth a visit. The variety of things to do and see means that it is suitable for all generations and will mean that one week will not be enough; you will want to book a second week or return again!
