About Andy Herbert

We have loved the South West and Cornwall in particular since our very first visit in the 1980s. We used to come here every summer for family camping holidays when the kids were small. It seems inevitable that we would end up buying a property here.

Andy Herbert purchased this house in 2003

Why Andy Herbert chose Wadebridge

We bought this house in Wadebridge in 2003. We liked Wadebridge because of its location on the river Camel. It isn't as as crowded or busy as some of the resorts on the coast but the nearest beaches are only 15 minutes by car. In 2010 the whole family completely refurbished the house and added a roof terrace overlooking the river Camel.

What makes this house unique

We love to sit on the roof terrace and watch the tide ebb and flow on the river Camel. The town centre is a 2 minute walk away across the river which is very convenient for shopping or going out in the evenings. One of our favourite beaches at New Polzeath is only a 15 minute drive away.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a wonderful location, only a short drive to many local places (Padstow, Polzeath, Port Isaac, Rock and so many more!) as well as handy to all the shops and facilities in town. Perfect if you want to head out along the Camel Trail in either direction on bikes or foot.

Great place for kids - 2 different playgrounds within 500m. Bedroom configuration works well for families, along with the two bathrooms.

We loved the living area, which allowed everyone their own area if needed, but to be still all together.

Owners are friendly and always helpful if needed. Property was clean and well maintained. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

Cornwall is one of our favourite places to visit (we love the Coast paths and all the outdoor areas to explore). We would definitely stay here again if we are back in Cornwall.

Great place for a family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely welcome with wine and cookies!! Thank you. All the information we needed was clearly set out. The location was perfect for us as we were there for a family christening at the church along the road and the family members involved live on that road too. So we were able to walk instead of fighting for parking space. Our weekend was a very happy one and the only scary bit was driving up that narrow alleyway to the property. Have recommended the place to our family in Wadebridge for any of their friends visiting from a distance. Would love to come again.

Third stay here and it's still great

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed here- it's a perfect base for so many beaches and the camel trail. The property has everything you need- is clean, spacious and warm. Booking is really eay, with very friendly owners.

We do a lot of surfing so it's great that there's plenty of space, especially an outside tap and a secure area/utility space to dry wetsuits and store boards. Other reviews have talked about the accessame, but it's no problem for us. Would really recommend this property.

Ideal base to tour the area

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything needed for our stay and was a good base to tour the area. Wadebridge is ideal if you like cycling but not a lot else to do.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thanks for leaving us your review. Great to hear that you enjoyed Wadebridge as a base to explore Cornwall from. Hopefully you enjoyed some of the cycling that the Camel Trail offers - one of our favourite rides is out to the Snails Pace Cafe on the Wenford Bridge branch line, great cakes await when you get to the end!

Lovely property, fantastic location, helpful owners, would stay again

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little property 2 minutes walk from everything in Wadebridge. We stayed for 2 weeks visiting my sister with our 4 year old and 2 month old the property had everything we wanted and needed to host other visiting family and friends. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment (a first for a self catering place) and they provided spare linen and towels on request. Parking and access to the property is tight but manageable (even with a screaming baby in the car!) And the property feels private enough even though you are just off a moderately busy road. Fully recommend staying here.

Property was as advertised and met our expectations

  • 4 of 5

We liked the upside down living. Everything needed for our stay was in the property and loved the decking area. The narrow alley way that led to the house was very snug in our vehicle. Perfect position for town and camel trail.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that everything was satisfactory for your stay. Many of our guests comment on the convenience of the 2 minute walk over the bridge to the shops. Everyone seems to enjoy the decking where you can sit and watch the tide coming in and out on the River Camel. We look forward to welcoming you back to Camel Prospect on another occasion.
