About Wadebridge

Explore the town, beaches and countryside from Wadebridge, a traditional Cornish town on the River Camel with a strong community spirit and even stronger history.

Only 8 miles from the coast, it’s the perfect base from which to enjoy Cornwall’s stunning beaches while also having the town’s many independent shops and delicious places to eat on your doorstep.

The river Camel is the hub for activity in the town and is a popular rest-stop roughly half-way along the Camel Trail – 17 miles of off-road track between Padstow and Bodmin, popular with cyclists, runners and walkers of all ages who enjoy the sights and sounds of the peaceful riverside route. It conversely boasts Cornwall’s highest number of independent shops and boutiques!

Often included in the Sunday Times’ Best Places to Live list, it won’t take you long to realise why the locals love it.
