Experience - The Area...
Lavender is a beautifully presented, two bedroom bungalow situated in an elevated position within walking distance of Wadebridge town and the Camel bicycle trail. In addition, a selection of North Cornwall's finest golden sandy beaches are all easily accessed by car too. Lavender benefits from two dedicated parking spaces located directly opposite the property.
The Cornish market town of Wadebridge has a selection of shops, restaurants and cafes which also still holds the Country Market which takes place every Thursday where you can pick up some local produce including jams, chutneys, cakes and many more food items as well as lots of various crafts.
The Camel Trail is less than a mile from Lavender where you can hire a bike and enjoy the amazing views along the trail. The most popular ride is towards the beautiful fishing village of Padstow, a flat 5 mile ride. In Padstow you will find many restaurants and pubs where you can relax and enjoy some amazing food; from Paul Ainsworth at No.6 to the local fish and chip shop on the harbour, there really is something for everyone. From Wadebridge you can head the other way on the trail towards one of Cornwall's oldest towns, Bodmin, a 6 mile ride which is mostly flat with a slight incline towards Bodmin. In Bodmin you will find an old county courtroom and the old country jail which are now visitor attractions. Don't forget when in Bodmin you can also visit the Bodmin and Wenford Railway which is Cornwall's only full size working steam railway. You can hire adult and child bikes, child trailers and seats, tandems bikes, specialised bikes for wheelchairs and of course a trailer for your four legged friend, booking is advisable in busier months all from Wadebridge.
For the children there is an adventure park called Camel Creek, only 5 miles away which offers an all weathers family attraction, all year round. Springfields is just over 10 miles away and again offers lots of fun for the family.
The beaches at Polzeath, Rock, Trevone and Harlyn are all within a 20 minute drive of Wadebridge . Polzeath is a sanctuary for surfers and you will find many surfers all year round here. This beach is lifeguarded in the season; although generally it is a safe beach and attracts many families, getting very busy in the height of the season. You can pick up the coast path and enjoy some stunning sites along to Daymar Bay and Rock from Polzeath and also has an easier path along to St Enodoc which gives the less mobile visitors a chance to enjoy the stunning scenery of the estuary as well. In Polzeath you will find local shops, a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants and of course somewhere to get an ice-cream to enjoy on the beach.
The picturesque harbours at Padstow and Port Isaac both are only 8 miles away. The traditional fishing village of Port Isaac is home to the TV series Doc Martin staring Martin Clunes. You will find narrow winding alleys, cobbled streets, local galleries and a village full of atmosphere in the summer. You can also see the fishermen coming back from sea and can even buy the catch of the day.
The Royal Cornwall Showground is just a ten minute walk from Lavender which hosts many events throughout the year.
