The Camel Trail

January 9, 2017

We are very lucky that we are able to visit family in Cornwall every year. We took a very quick trip just after Christmas and my son had his first proper bike ride along the Camel Trail.

 

The Camel Trail runs along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow.

It is an 18 mile largely traffic free, surfaced and virtually level multi use trail which passes through some of the most spectacular countryside in the south west. We joined it in Bodmin for a short cycle and walk.


Here is some more information from Visit Cornwall: "Following the disused railway line once used by the London and South West Railway, cyclists hug the Camel Estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge before joining the route through the deeply incised and beautifully wooded Camel Valley to Bodmin.

 

At Bodmin yet another line, one of the most historic in the country, winds its way inland to the foot of Bodmin Moor where it comes to an end near Blisland, an extraordinarily pretty moorland village.

 

Landscape and wildlife designations abound, contrasts in scenery are striking and access to country and seaside towns provide opportunities to use local shops, pubs and visit attractions.

 

Visitors can easily hire bikes in Padstow, Wadebridge, Bodmin as well as at Wenfordbridge which is at the other end of the trail where there is also free parking and public toilets at Snail's Pace cafe & Bike hire. The trail provides access in to the heart of North Cornwall, experienced cyclists can make off, away from the trail exploring the many villages and country lanes which lie close to the trail." 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The kids take a little paddle no matter what season it is! 

 

 

 

 It looked beautiful in the winter sunshine. I'm sure we'll be back again in the summer.
