The West Country region
Located on the Camel estuary, just 6 miles (9.6km) inland from the Atlantic, Wadebridge is ideal base for exploring the rugged North Cornwall coast, visiting any number of fishing villages including Port Isaac, Port Quin and Tintagel or drive a short distance inland to Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor and the Lizard The popular fishing port of Padstow and home of the famous Padstow 'Obby Oss' is a short (6 mile/9.6km) drive away, characterised by its picturesque harbour, shops and gourmet restaurants. A variety of boat trips regularly depart from the harbour, offering cruises and fishing trips with a ferry across the Camel estuary to Rock, a well known water sport and sailing resort. The famous golf clubs at St Enodoc, Trevose and Merlin are all within easy reach. Bedruthan Steps on the National Trust’s Cornish Coastal Path and the Camel Trail, running from Padstow through Wadebridge to Bodmin, are excellent for sightseeing, bird watching, walking and cycling.
Further down the coast you will find the thriving surfing town of Newquay (14 miles/22.5km) with its legendary Fistral Beach and many other popular surfing spots. For those who don’t want to venture that far there are many more world class beaches closer to hand, all within a 10 mile (16km) drive. They include Polzeath, Harlyn Bay, Treyarnon Bay and the excellent wind and kite surfing beach at Daymer Bay.
Historically Wadebridge is the place with a river crossing that became a Bridge - built on countless bales of wool they say. It now has two newer ones. One allows through traffic to bypassed the town, the other makes walking easier from Egloshayle into the centre of town. When the bypass - aqueduct - was built they had problems finding the bottom of the river. The second new bridge is called "Anneka's Bridge" after the TV presenter Anneka Rice.
The town is a central point of access to the Camel Trail with a choice of either heading seawards towards Padstow or inland towards Bodmin and then further up onto Bodmin Moor. Wadebridge is a place created by history and the river. The half way point between two extremely different areas of Cornwall.
By checking most local sign posts you will find that many of Cornwall's other main towns seem to be equidistant from Wadebridge. Perhaps this is why some of the County's biggest events have their home here. The Royal Cornwall Show, The Cornwall Folk Festival and one of county's leading old farmers' markets, now staged at The Royal Cornwall Showground.
