About the Owner

I have been renting Waterside as a holiday home for over 15 years with many repeat bookings. Previous to that I lived there myself for 2 years and my family love staying there occasionally, so it is well equipped, well maintained and should provide you with a great home-from-home. We look forward to accommodating you in wonderful Cornwall!

lovely holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Waterside provided us with a lovely base to explore Cornwall. The fact that we were beside the Camel Trail was a bonus as we enjoyed a walk every morning. Wadebridge has lovely shops and nice places for eating. The house provided us with everything we needed and the little veranda off the lounge was a suntrap. Perfect on a sunny day to sit and enjoy the view. The neighbours were very friendly and we would definitely recommend Waterside.

Fabulous position overlooking the River Camel

  • 5 of 5

We found Waterside Cottage to be ideally situated just a short walk from the centre of Wadebridge. If you intend to cycle to Bodmin or Padstow you will find yourself right on the trail and its such a lovely experience to visit both.

The accomodation was superb and everything was very well laid out with the lounge and a balcony on the first floor to enjoy the views.

We would thoroughly recommend.

Wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

A very clean well equipped property with lovely view over the River Camel. Spacious bright lounge with everything you would need.

A quiet location but easy walking distance to Wadebridge where there is a good variety of shops and restaurants. The Camel trail starts almost outside the front door and offers good walks and bird life.The sheltered garden at the rear is a great sun trap and the front balcony enjoys the morning sun.

The owner was very helpful and I would highly recommend this property.

From the Owner

I bought the property because of its fantastic views. Overlooking the playing fields and river is a relaxing experience and you can often spot the swans and sometimes if you are lucky a Kingfisher and other birds. I love eating lunch out in the sheltered garden; even in winter it is often warm and sunny. Wadebridge has 1742 hours of sunshine a year; 370 more than the UK average. Why not come and spend some extra hours in the sunshine? It is easily accessible from the A30 and is perfect for exploring Cornwall.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Ship Inn at 0.25 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Plymouth at 40 Kilometres Nearest Golf : St Edonoc at 7 Kilometres Nearest Train : Bodmin Parkway at 7 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A30 at 0.25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Warnes at 0.25 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Plymouth Dry Ski Slope at 40 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Daymer Bay at 7 Kilometres Car: not necessary


The lovely sandy beach at Rock, the historic Daymer Bay with St Edonoc Church and the memorial to Sir John Betjamin, the magnificent surfing beach at Polzeath and the delights of Padstow are all within 6 miles drive.

Polzeath is a similar distance and with regular good surf offers excellent body boarding for beginners or professionals!


Newquay Airport is the nearest only 15 miles away

Exeter Airport is 40 miles away (just over 1hrs drive)

Bristol Airport is 90 miles away (2 hrs drive)

A car is recommended but not essential. The bus service is good and previous guests have arrived by train (Bodmin Parkway nearest station) and used solely buses or flown to Newquay and used just buses to explore and have been very happy.


There is an excellent Sea Life Centre in Newquay and the Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay offers adrenalin sports such as surfing or kite surfing. Culinary experiences abound in the area including the renowned Jamie Oliver 15 Restaurant at Watergate bay. Or perhaps enjoy Fish and Chips or a meal at one of Rick Steins famous eateries in Padstow. Tintagel with its legends of King Arthur is an easy morning trip. (All within 6-15 miles). 20 miles away, the Eden Project is not to be missed!

Further Details:

Wadebridge is an historic market town which was a busy river port in times gone by. There is a good variety of shops including a Supermarket within a quarter of a mile, a selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes and a leisure centre including a swimming pool and a cinema all within 1 mile. The latter has the latest films but old fashioned comfy seats!

Cornwall's rugged landscape, magnificent coastline, wooded creeks and historic mansions have been used by film and television companies for their productions and have inspired many pieces of literature. The James Bond blockbuster, Die Another Day starring Pierce Brosnan, was shot at Holywell Bay near Newquay and at the Eden Project. Saving Grace, was set on the north coast in Port Isaac, Boscastle and Trebarwith Strand. Recent success has also come with Doc Martin filmed at Port Isaac and Seaside Parish set in Boscastle.

Daphne Du Maurier is famous for her many novels. The mansion Menabilly near Fowey featured in Rebecca, the Manderley of the novel. Inspiration for her novels include: Fowey; Helford River; Pendennis Castle and Jamaica Inn at Bolventor which you will probably pass on your journey to Waterside and the beautiful Lanhydrock also nearby.

Another novelist who associated with the Cornwall is Rosamunde Pilcher. Her books have been dramatised for television. One of her most famous books is The Shell Seekers and Coming Home which was filmed at Lelant, near St Ives, Prideaux Place Padstow and Marazion near St Michaels Mount.

All of these locations are easily reached by car from Waterside.

It would be incomplete not to mention Sir John Betjeman famous for his poetry. There is a small museum in Wadebridge just a few minutes walk from Waterside which displays some memorabilia. I thoroughly recommend a visit to his final resting place at Daymer Bay. The church was for many years covered in sand and the vicar had to enter through the roof! The beach is opposite Padstow and the views are glorious.
