Local Area

The former market town of Wadebridge is another often-overlooked location, but is a great base for exploring many areas of Cornwall.  The Camel Trail links it with Padstow and Bodmin, and it is also close to villages such as Polzeath and Rock. Wadebridge itself is a lively town boasting many amenities including a cinema, several local pubs which offer live music and good atmospheres, and a unique mix of local shops and businesses which make it stand out from many other small towns. The town's position on the Camel Estuary also makes it a good prospect for water-sports such as water-skiing, canoeing and sailing. Another talking point is the town's recently-acquired status as one of the country's foremost 'eco-towns' -many local people are advocates of renewable energy such as wind and solar power.  This is largely down to the work of the Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network, whose aim is to make the town the first in Britain to be fully powered by renewable energy. Plenty of events take place in Wadebridge and surrounding area throughout the year, including the Royal Cornwall Show, and the popular Wadebridge Folk Festival.  There is also a beer festival in June, and The Big Lunch, a street party organised by the town's residents.

Very friendly serviceMrs Ann Fudge - 5th October 2015
I have always found your company most helpful and have done everything possible to hold a property for me. Sam who looks after the property has been very friendly and accommodating and makes the property look lovely with fresh flowers and ""goodies"" on arrival.Miss C Godwin - 29th September 2015
Booking Tern through Cornish Horizons gave me the peace of mind and once I had booked the holiday, I had no worries at all. The standard of accomodation/ service is excellent.Mrs J - 22nd November 2012
This is a lovely house - we have stayed here once or twice a year for the last five years as we have family in Cornwall, so use Tern as a base when visiting them. It has a cosy living room and modern, well equipped kitchen/dining room. The bedrooms are lovely, with a great view over Wadebridge from the twin room - my children often talk of the beautiful view from their bedroom in Tern! The house is always spotless when we arrive and the owners are very good at maintaining the house and there are often new additions/improvements.Mrs J - 2nd February 2012
