About Carol Avery

I have been renting Waterside as a holiday home for over 20 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!

Carol Avery purchased this house in 1995

Why Carol Avery chose Wadebridge

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. A Cornish Pasty or local Panini always goes down well. Even in winter the patio garden with palms 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.

What makes this house unique

Locally, Wadebridge has great amenities whilst the property is located a very short level walk away from them at the edge of town. Also, the Camel Trail woodlands and the river to the sea can be immediately enjoyed. The property is perfect for exploring Cornwall. There is a good variety of cafes and restaurants in the area if you fancy eating out. There is an excellent delicatessen and also bakers and supermarkets. If you want to BBQ, cook a meal or have a picnic these are all easy and fun! The location of Waterside is just fantastic. Many of our customers come back year after year. Why not come and try it with your friends and family and enjoy it too?

Waterside is a perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Waterside. The house is r ally well equipped with comfortable beds, laundry facilities and a well equipped kitchen that is lovely to cook in. It's right on the Camel trail so we were able to cycle several times as a family. It was great for all our children to be able to cycle together safely.

We also walked to the cinema a couple of times and had several meals in Wadebridge. The pub is great and really welcoming!

This really is the most relaxing holiday location - p refectory for walking by the sea, cycling, shopping and visiting Cornish attractions like the Eden Project and Hidden Valley.

Carol is a superb host - communication is really easy. Thank you so much - we can't wait for our next visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your super review. We are so glad you had another great family stay. I'm glad you've highlighted Hidden Valley; it's one of our favourite places to visit too! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

A great family-friendly place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying with our 2 boys, Waterside had ample space to fit us all in with room to spare! Facilities were top notch and information is provided on everything to visit nearby. Perfectly situated for easy access to a variety of large playgrounds which were fully appreciated. Other local amenities are a short walk away and there is plenty to make us come back again, and staying at Waterside will be top of our list.

Waterside

  • 4 of 5

Views over the river were lovely, location was good, bus station was handy to have a break from driving. Cottage had all facilities necessary. Our only criticism is that after an 8.5 hour journey due to accidents and roadworks, a small bottle of milk to make a cup of tea would have been welcome. This was our 10th cottage holiday and we have always had this.

Owner's Response: I am pleased you enjoyed the lovely views, ideal location and the facilities of the cottage. Previous guests have also found the bus service good and used it to travel throughout Cornwall. We keep the complimentary items we provide under regular review. For the last 20 years of operating our business we have always left something cold in the fridge as a complimentary treat to soothe visitors after their journey. This year we decided on Sparkling wine as a surprise. If you return again or if any other guest would prefer we can easily swap the bottle of wine for milk; just let us know in advance.

Daymer Bay
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The lovely sandy beach at Rock, the historic Daymer Bay 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 or surfing for beginners or professionals! Relax afterwards with a meal locally or a Cornish Ice Cream.

Travel:

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.

Distances:

There is a good 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 which offers regular special events including ice skating in the winter.

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. Poldark was extensively filmed in Cornwall. 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. Continued 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 charming 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.
