Although it seems to be mostly used by cyclists, this is an easily walkable route. Very flat and paved all the way. From Wadebridge to Camel Valley vineyard (in direction of Bodmin) is around 4.5 miles and took us about 1.5 hours at a leisurely...More

Just the most peaceful and beautiful place. Just a nice distance to Padstow for a refreshing pint and pasty.

Great cycle - flat enough for the most unfit!! Cycles available to hire from various outlets. Takes about 35 mins to cycle each way.

Hi - we always do it the other way round because the parking in Padstow is tricky. Some of the cycle hire places in Wadebridge give you free parking.
