We recently had a summer holiday to Cornwall and stayed at this beautiful holiday home in Wadebridge. It was the perfect house for a multigenerational holiday in a fab location and we would highly recommend staying here.
We had a child, teenager, young adults, parents and grandparents all under one roof. 4 bedrooms, two living rooms and kitchen with a large dining area, it was just the perfect space where we felt like we could spend time time together but not feel on top of one another!
The decor is stunning it gives you a home away from home feel and i’d imagine it being a nice cosy place to stay in the winter too! The living room at the front of the house has a piano so the teenager, Freddie was quite happy retreating there to play while the little one, Georgia was playing with her toys. The second lounge was used for some down time after a long day exploring. The kitchen was an amazing space to cook up a meal and the dining table was large enough for us all to sit around in the evening comfortable to eat and play boardgames! We took quite a few games as we are a gaming family but they do have a nice selection in the house too.
Owner, Joanna, has really thought about families with toddlers and babies in mind too. There are stair-gates on the main stairs, toddler plates, bowls, cutlery and cups found in the kitchen. Highchairs for two babies or twins, large bathroom with an amazing bath that everyone wanted to give a ago, and a step up in the bathroom so little ones can see what they are doing when brushing their teeth. Wooden playhouse outside with slide, wooden toys and books.
It took just a few minutes to walk in to Wadebridge, it is fab village to mooch around. There is a co-op just 5 minutes walk away for those little bits you may need and then a 10 minute drive to a large Sainsbury’s. A few minutes walk down the road is the cutest little cinema, we wished we had visited too but we just couldn’t fit it in, next time! Lots of little cafes, bakeries, butchers, restaurants and shops. There are many bike rentals too with trailers for doggies and children. Wadebridge has access to the Camel Trail, one direction leads you to Camel Valley and further. Camel Valley is a winery offering a beautiful spot with views and wine to taste. The other direction will take you to Padstow, a really lovely village on the Harbour, with many shops, restaurants and cafes. You can walk along the beach front for half an hour to reach a beautiful beach called Harbour Cove, a favourite day of ours, or you can get a boat across to Rock and walk along the Estuary.
Williams and Son butchers – We ate in most evenings so we would go here for the meat, kept the meat eaters happy!
Tim’s Place – This was a lovely cafe with yummy breakfast options and coffees. The staff were really friendly and there was a cute little court yard area.
The Regal – A little cinema around the corner from Hillcote. It would be nice to come one afternoon if the weather is a bit miserable and need some down time.
Camel Trail – I ran a couple mornings with dogs, along the camel trail, we also road bikes, it was fun and beautiful views!
Salt Box – We went here one evening for a quick bite to eat after our bike ride along the camel trail. It’s a street food hub with lots of options, pizza, Asian food, Indian street food, a bar offering cocktails and a cafe with cakes and coffees.
