Once known as a thriving market town in the days when livestock were sold here, Wadebridge is now better known for its arts and crafts shops and a wide variety of independent retailers, meaning it stands out from many modern high streets these days!
Wadebridge makes an excellent base for exploring the natural beauty of North Cornwall and is also a gateway to the Camel Trail, 17 miles of traffic free walking, cycling and horse riding. Set alongside the river Camel, the town affords a range of activities and places to see - from historic houses to adventure parks - ensuring that all ages are catered for.
There is a great selection of restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways, serving a range of regional and international dishes so whatever your preference, you'll be spoilt for choice. If you're looking for a quality bottle of wine to go with a quiet meal at your holiday cottage, Wadebridge Wines are an excellent place to go (and you can get a 10% discount with your Privilege Card).
For those who want to try something a little more active, you can have a go at sailing or other watersports, cricket, tennis, golf and bowls. There is also a leisure centre, with facilities including a swimming pool.
