No need to get the hump at Wadebridge
Wadebridge is one of the biggest market towns in North Cornwall and, as the gateway to the famous Camel Trail, is very popular among outdoors enthusiasts. While the Camel Trail is not specifically linked to camels - rather it's an 18-mile well-surfaced track ideal for cyclists, horse riders, hikers and joggers - those hoping to catch a glimpse of some exotic ungulates might get their wish at the Camel Creek Adventure Park.
Explore the town
While the countryside and local trails certainly entice many visitors, Wadebridge's real charms lie in its town centre. There are plenty of independent shops and delightful cafes, as well as restaurants, bars and pubs which offer a unique experience after the sun goes down. Be sure to check out Warne's Bar for relaxed modern British cuisine.
Head to the beach
Wadebridge is also a popular stopping-off point for those heading to the North Cornwall coast - and Cornwall certainly offers some stunning beaches. Constantine Bay is among the best, just seven miles away, while Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay is a bit further at 17 miles but well worth the trip.
