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 St Breock

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.

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.

A lovely place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay at Camel Prospect. It's very homely and a perfect place to come back to after a day of activities. Great location if you want to explore Cornwall and also plenty of shops/restaurants nearby.

The place was clean and the kitchen well equipped. My kids enjoyed the surround sound system- perfect for a movie night.

The owner was quick to respond and friendly when we needed something.

We would definitely use the same property next time we visit Cornwall.

Would have liked more chairs on the terrace to enjoy the lovely view.

A cosy yet contemporary house in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect; modern stylish, & with a little patio/balcony on which to enjoy the evening sun with a view of the River Camel.

The location so near to the town with all amenities meant we could leave the cars on several days, walk the Camel Trail or catch buses off to the coast to walk the Coast Path. The owners were extremely helpful & their recommendation of the nearby pub made our evening out an easy & excellent choice. Certainly a house to enjoy coming back to.

Well presented charming property in the heart of Wadebridge

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay, great to see Cornwall in the Winter season. Weather wasn't great but still managed some lovely cliff walks, Pentire Headland at Polzeath has some beautiful views. The house was really comfortable and welcoming, great to come back to after embracing the elements. Ideal location for the town and Camel Trail which we'll be back to explore further on another visit. Loved the open plan living area which is bright and airy with plenty of space. Would highly recommend a stay at this property, it's a great base for exploring Cornwall.
