Don’t let your holiday end with the Camel Trail!
Whether you’re choosing to start your holiday at Padstow or from the other end at Wenford Bridge, if you’ve got the luxury of time then you may as well spend one more night in Cornwall.
Whilst we’re well aware that an 18-mile cycle is hardly the Tour De France, we find that the best way to enjoy the Camel Trail is by taking your time and really soaking in everything that this wonderful part of the world has to offer. Whether you’re staying for a weekend or are planning on spending some more time exploring the surrounding area for a bit longer, taking the time to recover from your journey to the region or from a long day’s cycle is very much recommended.
These are some of the most popular places to say in and around Wenford Bridge, you may find that you’ll need to book in advance so don’t hesitate in making your booking:
The Family Option: Higher Lank Farm
If you’re coming with a children in tow then there are few options better than the award winning Higher Lank Farm. This is a super inclusive farm yard stay that offers a unique rural experience that will be especially of interest for those kids who are infatuated with animals. Staying over the course of a weekend grants each child staying a pony ride, a pony and trap ride and the opportunity to feed the animals each morning. Best of all, you’re just a short cycle from the start of the Camel Trail, making this a perfect option to start or finish your holiday with.
The Self-Catering Option: Coombe Mill
In nearby St. Breward you can stay at Coombe Mill, another farm yard destination that offers 5 cottage stays which can sleep a surprising amount of people. The largest cottages here sleep 9 or 10 people, featuring private hot tubs and playrooms amongst other things. These cottages are perfect for families of all ages who are looking to bookend their Camel Trail holiday with a couple of nights in a rural idyll, that’s nicely removed from the fairly bustling cycle trail.
The Posh Option: Loskeyle Collection
Owned by the Duchy of Cornwall, these cottages offer a slice of rural tranquillity with a side-serving of high end luxury, just the thing to finish off your cycling holiday. Dog-owners are very much welcome, in fact those staying at these deluxe cottages can bring along 2 furry friends with them. Less than half a mile from the start of the Camel Trail, there are even places to hire bikes from nearby who will deliver your rides straight to the cottage.
The Poldark Option: Darrynane Cottages
Although Cornwall has already been inundated with rabid Poldark fans, Darrynane Cottages are still doing their part to advertise their geographical affiliation with the popular BBC series. Four detached, historical Cornish cottages are on offer here, one of which is over a century old. Each cottage is handsomely decked out with everything that you might want for a weekend in the country, including a handy laundry room in the main house with washing rooms and dryer.
