A lovely day out travelling from Wadebridge to padstow - we have gone on up to Bodmin on previous visits. Flattish route - only criticism is the part going through Wadebridge is a bit tricky as driving on town centre roads, especially with little ones,...More

Stopped at the borough arms in bodmin for free car parking to walk the dog along the camel trail. Stream along way to keep dog amused. Went into bodmin and area was a bit run down. Okay for an afternoon stroll

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
