In the North of Cornwall and along the River Camel lies the civil parish of Wadebridge, five miles away from the historic town of Padstow. A lively place that is full of character, Wadebridge is the ideal place to rent a holiday cottage, especially if a holiday filled with plenty of family fun is what you are after. Breathe in the beautiful surrounding nature by going on the Sir John Betjeman walk, which stretches along the glorious South West coastal path. Alternatively, pack a flask of tea and go for a ramble along the Copper Trail of Bodmin Moor, taking you through endlessly charming villages and stunning scenes. If you find yourself in Wadebridge during May, then the MayPlay Festival is a must, filled with free activities tailored for young ones. For the grown-ups, there is the annual Beer Festival, offering delicious Cornish-brewed beers and live music.
