Camel Valley, Padstow, Rock and North Cornwall
The Camel Valley and the Camel Trail are in one of Cornwall's most beautiful and varied areas. There are fantastic beaches at Polzeath for swimming or surfing, gourmet eating in Padstow, sailing and other boating activities at Rock and just wonderful rolling countryside.
A popular activity is to walk, cycle or horse ride along the Camel Trail. The Camel Trail is a disused and resurfaced railway line in Cornwall, United Kingdom, that provides a recreational route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The trail is flat running from Padstow to Wenford Bridge via Wadebridge and Bodmin, it is 17.3 miles (27.8 km) long and used by an estimated 400,000 users each year. The trail is managed and maintained by Cornwall Council.
It was originally built at a cost of £35,000 following a study commissioned in 1831 by local landowner Sir William Molesworth of Pencarrow. The line from Wadebridge to Wenfordbridge, with a branch to Bodmin, was intended to carry sand from the Camel estuary to inland farms for use as fertiliser. In the 1840s, England's railway network expanded towards Bodmin. The London and South Western Railway purchased the Bodmin and Wadebridge Railway in 1846 and intended to connect it to the rest of the system by a new line through North Cornwall.
Later the railway was used to ship slate and china clay from inland quarries to ships in Padstow and also transport fish landed in Padstow inland to London and other cities. When both quarrying and fishing died off, the railway lost most of its traffic. The last passenger train was in 1967, freight finally ceased in 1983, when a need to invest in new track forced closure of the line.
The trail now:
The railway was built so that the trains would not have any steep inclines or sharp turns. It is these characteristics which make it an excellent cycle trail. Since the trail has been open to the public cycle hire shops, cafes and other attractions have sprung up to cater for the traffic. Many families take their young children to the trail to allow them to become more confident cyclists in a traffic free environment. The local cycle hire shops have a wide range of tag-alongs or buggies to allow very young children to be safely transported behind their parents. Only a small part of the trail, through Wadebridge, is on roads and shared with normal traffic.
Car parking at Padstow, Wadebridge and Poley's Bridge allow the trail to be broken into 5-mile (8 km) sections giving an easy 10-mile (16 km) round trip back to your starting point with a break in Wadebridge or Padstow for food, drink, shopping and rest.
In the year 2006 two extensions to the trail were completed. The first was from Scarlett’s Well car park in Bodmin up into the town. The second was from Pooleys Bridge near St Breward to Wenfordbridge through the old clay dries.
Pubs and Eating:
- The Camel Trail is a fantastic place to eat and drink.
- In nearby Padstow and Rock there are two of the countries best restaurants, Rick Stein's Seafood Restuarant and Nathan Outlaw Seafood and Grill Restuarant at the St Enodoc Hotel.

"So lovely to be able to stay in such good accommodation and be dog friendly"
Had a lovely week at Chapel Barn. As with all of our previous encounters with Cornwall Holiday Cottages everything was to the highest standards. The bonus is always being able to take our dog and enjoy the same standard of accommodation as being at home. We chose this area so that we could enjoy The Camel Trail and several trips to Padstow. We also enjoyed the hospitality of some very dog friendly pubs.

"Great little place"
Lovely little place. Well equiped and the presentation of the property supplies the wow factor. A small little outside area in which to relax and sit in the evening. Ideally situated close to Bodin and Wadebridge. Set back s asafe distance form the main road and close to lovely footpaths and cycle trails. A great base to spend time exploring cornwall with family or friends.
