OUR LOCAL RECOMMENDATONS:
? St Mawgan Village â?? a very local old fashioned village, the tearooms do the best cream teas with their own home-made jam, they also make their own cakes. The church dates back to the 13th century and the convent is an active monastery. The River Menalhyl runs through the quaint village with its lovely walks through Carnanton woods, the flat playing field is home to the local cricket team and home to many traditional events like the Feast Sports and Church fair. It is also home to some stunning Japanese Gardens and Bonsai nurseries.
? Wadebridge is an old fashioned town with many independent shops; it is also the mid-way point on the Camel trail linking Padstow and Bodmin. The Camel trail is perfect for walking or cycling (there are many bike hire shops in all 3 towns) whilst taking in the stunning views and wildlife over the Camel Estuary. The trail is reasonable level, with many picnic benches scattered along the way along with bird watching hives. The reason I suggest people explore the Camel Trail from the Wadebridge point is purely because the car parks are much more reasonably priced there.
? Bedruthan Steps - the view makes this an iconic part of Cornwall and it is walking distance from our site when you use the coastal footpath from Mawgan Porth beach. The Beach at Bedruthan Steps can be reached by descending just over 100 steps, tide permitting but it is the tales of the giant and the stepping stones that enthrall many. The National Trust Tea Rooms with local produce, cream teas, pasties and ice-creams make this a must see place to visit.
? Mawgan Porth beach â?? this is a clean, sandy beach where the river Menalhyl reaches the sea. There are many rock pools and caves to explore and tide permitting there is a small waterfall hidden in one of the caves. The beach is reasonably level and has lifeguards on duty for the main season, it is popular across the generations.
? Siblyback Lack â?? located on the moors, the lake is ideal for those who want to get back to the outdoor life style. You can explore the area around the lake on foot enjoying the scenery and wild life or for those who prefer life on the water there is the opportunity to hire rowing boats, wind surfing equipment and canoes. It is also possible to fish for rainbow trout here, provided you have purchased the permit of course.
