If you are looking for an idyllic setting for your holiday in Cornwall, this quaint stone cottage is the perfect place. Waverley Cottage is nestled in the pretty hamlet of Burlawn, situated between Padstow and the beautiful beaches of Rock and Polzeath, with the town of Wadebridge 2 miles away. It’s the ideal retreat for the whole family to make memories together, including those with four paws. It offers a sumptuous, cosy lounge with a lovely woodburner, which is perfect for warming up next to after a brisk walk along the beach, and the large contemporary kitchen and farmhouse table are great for socialising and planning the next day’s adventures. If you’d rather sit back and relax at home with a drink in hand then the woodland and countryside views, with birdsong and beautiful sunsets are all on hand from your seat in the garden.

For the more energetic, the picturesque Camel Valley cycle and walking trail is just minutes away. Hire some bicycles for the day and enjoy the stunning trail which has picture-postcard views along the sandy estuary to Padstow; the perfect place to stop off for pub lunch. Head the other way and you’ll find the Camel Valley vineyard and Bodmin’s 18th century Jail (as seen in Poldark) – just don’t forget to look out for the steam train as you approach Bodmin!

Holidays in Wadebridge

The charming market town of Wadebridge is located in a picturesque location on the River Camel estuary. This scenic town is popular with walkers and cyclists, with idyllic coastal and countryside walking routes and the Camel Trail cycle route on the doorstep. With some of Cornwall's most beautiful beaches just a short drive away and a fantastic selection of independent boutiques, art galleries and eateries in the town itself, Wadebridge has everything you need for a memorable holiday in Cornwall.

Perched on the edge of the River Camel estuary, this pretty market town in North Cornwall is great for walking, cycling and foodie holidays, and perfect for discovering beautiful beaches and trying out some watersports.

Top tip

Hire a bike and cycle the Camel Trail to Padstow and back.

Things to do in Wadebridge

The Camel Trail

Connecting Wadebridge, Padstow and Bodmin, this scenic cycling trail has been created on the old railway line. The whole trail is 18 miles long and it's all traffic-free and quite level. Hire bikes in Wadebridge and cycle 5.5 miles alongside the estuary to Padstow, or 5.75 miles through countryside and woodland to Bodmin. From Bodmin, you can then cycle just over 6 miles to Wenfordbridge.

Walking

Wadebridge is home to Saints Way, a 16 mile cross country walking route, forged in ancient times by Celtic saints between Padstow and Fowey. The walk takes you past pretty creeks and villages, and through the ancient town of Lostwithiel. Bodmin Moor is also nearby which is fantastic for walking and there are numerous coastal paths near Wadebridge to discover as well.

Boat trips & watersports

The River Camel estuary is a playground for activities on the water, with boat trips running between Padstow and Rock, speedboat tours and watersport lessons and hire. You could have a go at stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, water-skiing or banana boating.

The Regal Cinema

The Regal cinema in Wadebridge first opened in 1931 and has a retro vibe. It's the perfect place to chill out with some popcorn and a movie when you've had a bit too much sun.

Shopping

Wander the streets of Wadebridge and you'll be spoilt for choice with independent shops, boutiques and galleries, as well as numerous cafes and pubs where you can refuel. Head into nearby Padstow for a plethora of art galleries and seaside gift shops.

The Royal Cornwall Show

Taking place every June, the Royal Cornwall Show is the biggest agricultural show in Cornwall. The showground comes to life with horse jumping, judging of cattle and other animals, live music, crafts, falconry, trade and food stalls, a fairground and much more.

Dining out in Wadebridge

Warne's Bar and Restaurant

Located in the heart of Wadebridge, this family-friendly restaurant has some mouth-watering menu choices including burgers, steaks and seafood dishes, with a separate gluten free menu too.

The Stepping Stone

Serving a selection of modern British cuisine, made from local Cornish produce, this hidden gem is not to be missed. Enjoy a relaxing dining experience and choose from a fantastic selection of delicious dishes.

The Tiny Thai

Situated in a riverside location, this authentic Thai restaurant serves food that is packed full of flavour. Expect a a welcoming and informal setting with a street food feel.

Route 39

If you fancy something a bit different on your holiday, why not check out this American style diner, serving fantastic pancakes, milkshakes, burgers, grills and other dishes you would expect to find in the states.

Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery

No trip to Cornwall would be complete without sampling a Cornish pasty. Malcolm Barnecutt's are arguably the best pasty-makers in this part of Cornwall, and sell a delicious range of sandwiches and cakes too.

Further afield, there's Rick Stein's, Paul Ainsworth at Number 6 and Rojano's Italian restaurant in Padstow, as well as a fabulous range of seafood restaurants in Rock and Port Isaac

Lovely cottage

We had a fabulous stay at Waverley cottage it’s warm and cosy and lovely spacious rooms. Drive way was plenty of room and the welcome pack and information was fab thank you

Great location for biking/walking. Lots of places nearby to visit. Very nice clean property with everything you would need.

Lovely spacious cottage, very peaceful. Need to be prepared to go out by car most days as very little in the way of walks from the cottage.

I wish we could give a good review of this cottage but we were very disappointed. On the plus side it was very clean on arrival, the living room is comfortable, the fridge/freezer is huge, there is ample room for food storage and the dining table gives plenty of space for meal times. However other issues really let this cottage down. The only shower is accessed via the kitchen and utility area which are both very over looked by the property to the rear and there are no privacy blinds. The kitchen equipment is of low quality and the worktops are extremely high - chest height for a 5 foot 4 female. The parking is fine for one car but unless cars are smaller than average it would be extremely tricky for 2 cars.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are very sorry to read that you were disappointed on this occasion with your stay at Waverley Cottage. As per each description, we do our very best to write the walk through in a way that guests will know exactly where each room is and with this property, we make it clear to any guest wanting to book the cottage, that the shower room is located through the kitchen and to the other side of the utility room. With having no previous comments regarding the shower room being overlooked and upon speaking with the owners, we can see that there is a 6ft fence that is placed on the raised patio which would avoid any overlooking into the bathroom area. If you are in fact meaning that the exit to the utility into the kitchen is something that is overlooked, which we understand has no blinds and is therefore overlooking the rear of the property, the owner is taking this into account and looking to get blinds installed to that area of the property. When it comes to the parking, the owner has taken the time to contact us to confirm that they have had an Audi Q3 and Landrover Discovery parked beside each other in the space that is available to guests and having seen the images to help reassure us of this, we are confident that the space is to an appropriate size for 2 cars. The kitchen worktops are of a slightly higher height than most standard kitchens, but the owners will certainly keep this monitored moving forward. We thank you again for your feedback and hope to see you again soon. Lucy, Customer Services

Love Waverley cottage and it’s quiet location but only 20 mins drive to so many places and some lovely walks from the doorstep.

Lovely spacious property. Very peaceful. Beautiful local walks.

Beautiful cottage in lovely, peaceful village location and well provided in terms of equipment. Comfortable bed with lovely fresh linen and towels provided and thoughtful welcome package on arrival (milk, tea, coffee, wine and nibbles). Nice specification throughout although disappointed with the shower room and parking could be tight / difficult for 2 cars. Lots of nice coastal walks to be had in surrounding areas and lovely front garden.

Beautiful cottage in a quiet location, really enjoyed our weeks stay to wind down and relax after a hectic year.

Waverley cottage was welcoming but driveway was was tight if you have big cars and more than one be aware as there isn’t any off street parking . The location was excellent with beautiful little village shops . We used Waverley cottage as a base which was excellent however if you have dogs please be aware the garden isn’t dog proof .

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed Waverley Cottage. It certainly is in a great location isn't it? Ideal for exploring this beautiful part of the country! It is definitely worth bearing in mind that the garden is only partially enclosed, if you are bringing your dog with you. We try to make this as clear as possible within the description, so we do hope that this was what you had expected. The access to the parking is on the narrow side, which could prove more difficult for some. Our Property Manager for that area will get some measurements next time she is over that way, so that we can better advise guests in future. Thank you for your helpful feedback on this. We hope that we will see you here in Cornwall again soon and thank you again for your review. Lucy, Customer Services

The property is well located and has had some modernisation with a good kitchen and dining area. All of the property needs finishing off to this standard.

A very attractive and well-appointed house in excellent condition. It was very comfortable, lovely finishing touches, clean and well equipped. The welcome pack was a lovely gesture and went down well with everyone! The ‘games room’ was a great additional benefit which the boys made good use of and gave us adults some peace and quiet! The location was quiet and tucked away but everything is just a short drive away. There are also some lovely walks to be had from the house which Lola our Labrador especially enjoyed. The owners have taken real care and consideration and this shows in every detail including the comprehensive information booklet.

Waverley Cottage is in a stunning location and provides a very comfortable, spacious and relaxing space for a family holiday. It is exceptionally well kept and clean, especially as it is pet friendly. It was a pleasure every time we came back from a day out to look up and see the house and front garden area, we were sorry to leave and can’t wait to return again soon.
