Description

Truly immerse yourself in nature at Gwendreath, situated in both a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation it really is the perfect spot for a bit of wildlife and bird watching. Or why not try a bit of star-gazing at night? Tucked away down a quiet lane you will find it easy to switch off, relax and unwind in the tranquil Camel Valley River setting.

Bringing bikes or hiring them locally is highly recommended as Gwendreath is located right next to the Camel Trail, which offers 18 miles of virtually level walking and cycling on what used to be an old railway line. You can cycle through the old market town of Wadebridge and on to Padstow and the Camel Estuary one way or inland to The Snail Pace cafe found at Wenford Bridge on Bodmin Moor. If you get thirsty on your way back from Wadebridge be sure to pop into the Camel Valley Vineyard located just off the Camel Trail. A divine spot where you can sip on their award-winning sparkling wine on their outside terrace. If you are looking for more of an adrenaline fix, the natural cycle trails at Cardinham Woods and Lanhydrock Cycle Hub with plenty of technical features are not to be missed.

Map

After the open landscapes and far-reaching vistas of much of the North Coast, visiting Dunmere and nearby Cardinham will make you feel you have been transported to the kind of serene landscape that comes straight from the pages of a Tolkien novel. It's not only beautiful scenery you'll find in this area. There is plenty to do here, and with a variety of activities, you will be sure to find something to suit everyone. You can get easy access to the Camel Trail, and there are also cycle trails at Cardinham Woods (some of which are suitable for buggies as well, so everyone can enjoy them). One of the best ways to take in the scenery of the local area (forest and moorland alike) is on horseback. Hallagenna Riding offer moorland treks, pub rides, and for experienced riders, the Poldark Trail and Jamaica Inn Trail. If you prefer a more relaxing break, you could visit The Borough Arms pub for a pint, or take a tour of the Camel Valley Vineyard, where you can sip a glass of wine grown from Cornish grapes on their terrace overlooking the vineyards and surrounding countryside. Nearby there is also Bodmin Gaol, an 18th Century prison where you can look round the museum and (if you're feeling brave!) participate in a Ghost Walk.
