Wadebridge was originally a market town. It has an amazing 15th century bridge with 17 arches over the River Camel, which is definitely worth a visit. It is said the bridge was built on wool as this was how the wealthy landowners in the area made their money. From the day the bridge was built the town became known as Wadebridge.
Both Wadebridge and nearby Camelford are both centrally located in order to explore the nearby hills and moors. Wadebridge is an excellent place from which to discover the Camel Trail, a walk and cycle track following the old railway route from Bodmin to Padstow. There is wonderful scenery and plenty of wildlife, including fantastic sightings of wading birds to see on this serene trail and bikes can be hired from the start. From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Steins empire in Padstow.
The Royal Cornwall Show ground at Wadebridge hosts the county show every June, come rain or shine, opened each year by a member of the Royal Family. Cornish Farmers have had to diversify in recent years and so has the show, but they have kept their traditional roots with steam engines being shown next to the shiny new high-tech tractors. It's not every day you get to see formation JCB digger dancing in the main ring. The National Trust have three properties nearby, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Pencarrow House & gardens is also nearby.

First time in Wadebridge. Greeted by the lovely owner Jenny on arrival, toured the cottage and made to feel very welcome. Gorgeous cottage and cosy. Ideal location for visiting the local areas of Padstow, Rock and the north coast.
Guest from Brighton stayed for 7 nights.
We had a lovely stay in Spring Cottage. There were 4 adults, 2 children and a dog and the hosts were so welcoming and generous during our stay. The cottage is lovely and has many original features. You can see where the cottage was originally joined to the main house which creates an intrigue. There's a lovely garden where we enjoyed BBQ's. Wadebridge was our base and we visited different bays and beaches, with recommendations from the host. We hired bikes, went on boat trips and ate really well. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely come back to Spring Cottage.
Guest from Wimborne stayed for 7 nights.
We stayed in Spring Gardens Cottage in August 2018 and had lovely time. The cottage is in a great location near the centre of Wadebridge but situated just off the beaten track so is peaceful and quiet.The owners who live next door were helpful and friendly Would definitely return again
Guest from Larbert stayed for 14 nights.
Had a great 2 weeks here! Cottage spotlessly clean and well appointed. Great location too - we were a short drive from the beaches and Wadebridge itself was great for meals out and the Camel Trail. We also ate in the cottage and our only request would be for clearer instructions for the oven - but we managed!! All in all, fabulous holiday cottage with great owners nearby. Would definitely stay again!!
Guest from Trowbridge stayed for 7 nights.
We stayed at the cottage for a week and were really pleased with our choice. Jenny was lovely and as they are only next door was available if we had any queries. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay and the courtyard was a fantastic little extra and a good little sun trap, we used this alot during the week. Location is great, we were right on the Camel Trail so if you have bikes you can cycle to Padstow and Bodmin very easily, both only 7 miles away. We would definitely stay at Spring Gardens Cottage again.

I stayed at Spring Gardens Cottage for one week with my partner and my parents. It was a welcome haven for us - cosy, quiet, spacious, and in a perfect location for exploring Cornwall. Although we were out and about everyday, the cottage provided for us a space to enjoy a leisurely breakfast and to sit in the warmth of the cottage after a day's travelling - unfortunately as it wasn't quite warm enough, we couldn't use the outdoor space, however, the cute half-door gave the feeling of dining at least half "al-fresco"! The cottage is really well-equipped with everything you need. Located off the main road, and with the door facing onto a private outdoor space, you really are cocooned in a lovely quiet space. Jenny, who looked after us on arrival was lovely and welcoming. You are a stone's throw from The Ship Inn - we booked this for our first night and it didn't disappoint. A great start to our holiday. Over the bridge is a large Co-op so you can stock up for the week. There's also Tom's Bakery on the corner, which sells fresh-baked bread. On our first day we walked the 6-mile camel trail to Padstow, and treated ourselves to RIck Stein's fish n' chips on arrival. We followed this with a walk up the hill from Padstow to the WW1 memorial and took in the view below. Sunday, we had booked on the Trevibban wine tasting tour - well worth a try. Then on to Port Isaac where we walked from there to Port Gavern. During our week, we took in the usual sites - Eden Project (crazy busy) and Lost Gardens of Heligan (if you're torn between which to visit, I would say Lost Gardens, but then it depends if you have kids or not - we didn't - however I think they would enjoy both) We also visited Charlestown, Mevagissey, Fowey - all of which were stunningly beautiful places and each has some kind of coastal walk to enjoy. We also rented bikes in Wadebridge and experienced the camel trail on wheels! That day we also took the passenger ferry from Padstow to Rock and walked a 6-mile circular walk down in to Polzeath and back along the coast. Spring Gardens was really a home from home - very relaxing, an oasis of calm! I would definitely return and recommend it anyone.
Guest from Ballymena stayed for 7 nights.
The location of this cottage was perfect set in the heart of all the local attractions ,I think the cottage we stayed in was on the small side and definitely overpriced,I would also have concerns about a suitable fire escape,as the windows seemed to be sealed shut ,there was a fire risk assessment done which was much too simple and vague and needs urgent attention
Guest from Swindon stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely cottage with all expected facilities. Great location, near to town centre and near main roads to nearby towns but still very quite and peaceful.
Guest from Bath stayed for 7 nights.
This is a comfortable cottage, quiet and in a great location for the Camel Trail, and local shops. Jenny and Steve are helpful and friendly.
Guest from Warrington stayed for 7 nights.
Had a fabulous time at the cottage and it's a perfect location to explore North Cornwall and places like Padstow, Rock and Newquay. Hopefully will return in 12 months!
Guest from Romsley stayed for 7 nights.

Guest from Southampton stayed for 4 nights.
Nice touches, fresh eggs and a bottle of wine. Helpfull and freindly owners.....................?...................................
Guest from Manchester stayed for 7 nights.
Pros Wine and flowers on arrival was a nice touch Nice outdoor area Reasonable size living area and bedrooms Good location - five minute walk to town centre Comfortable beds Washing machine and dishwasher Cons / issues Very over priced - lots of other options for the same price in the area No fire extinguishers or fire escapes, as windows don't fully open Appliances not pat tested for 3 years Not particularly clean, especially grubby sofa, wallpaper, carpets and bathroom Dusty drawers and shelves Lots of cobwebs, several spiders and some woodlouse Unfinished flooring in living room and bathroom with gaps between floor and walls Musty smelling wardrobe and cupboards, so had to leave doors open to stop clothes smelling Unclean cutlery and crockery, which all needed rewashing due to musty smell BBQ unusable as was filthy. Had to buy disposable one. Patchy wi fi signal Dated decor - looks much better on pictures Below par bathroom, with grubby, slow running shower cubicle and now shaver point for shavers or electric toothbrushes Exposed boiler on landing, not on pictures Thin rug, which was very difficult to clean, suggesting it doesnt get cleaned much Thin curtains, so very bright in bedrooms from sunrise One parking space for property with two double bedrooms. Should be first come first served with B&B Inadequate oven instructions with print rubbed off, which spoiled two meals General comments I booked Spring Gardens Cottage for my family of four, including my pregnant wife, her parents and their small dog, hoping wed get a good mix of old and new. The pictures, descriptions and selected reviews gave the impression that wed have a nice cottagy feel , but with all mod cons and a few luxuries. At over £900 a week with the dog peak season we spent a bit more than intended and there were literally hundreds of places we could have booked in Cornwall, including a more modern three bedroom, three bathroom property just up the road. How we all wish we went for the other property. Spring Gardens Cottage proved to be an unclean and pretty unloved cottage, with lots of corners cut. It turned out to be very basic accommodation, where we ended up paying 4 star prices for a 2 star stay. Ignoring the fact it was a cottage it felt more like a student house, rather than a quality holiday let. Unless the owners are prepared to clean the place up, keep on top of maintenance, replace the bathroom, box in the boiler and thrown in some nice touches like soft towels and toiletries my recommendation to anyone looking for somewhere to stay would be to keep looking. As the owners live on site and share the communal space there isnt as much privacy as some may like, and this also made it awkward to complain, as wed see them coming and going throughout the week. The last thing we would want to do is create a bad atmosphere when we were trying to enjoy our holiday. We shared our feedback with them after our visit and they proved not to be interested, which says a lot.
Mr W sent an email to us after his departure threatening that he would leave a poor review of the property should he not receive money off his holiday. Under no circumstances will we EVER consider any refund with the threat of a poor review of a property. Neither ourselves nor our clients will be effectively blackmailed with such threats and we are happy to publicly rebuke those that do. As the reader can see from many reviews left on this property, it is an older cottage with considerable character and charm and has had plenty of well received reviews.
Guest from Eastleigh stayed for 3 nights.
Spring Gardens Cottage was an absolutely lovely long weekend break away for myself and my partner. Polzeath beach was only a 10 minute drive away, and only half an hour from Newquay. Situated in Wadebridge, the town centre was a 5 minute walk over the bridge, and had plenty to offer in terms of food shopping and general shopping as well as tourist shops and keep sakes. Despite our late arrival in the evening, Jenny still took the time to show us around the cottage to show us where bits were and how to work the boiler etc. We were even welcomed with a bottle of wine and chocolates. The cottage itself was beautiful, with a log fire and basic essentials such as sugar, salt, teabags etc. The bed was very comfy and warm as the nights were a little cold. Overall, our stay was perfect and we could not have asked for more. Jenny has made Spring Gardens cottage a wonderful holiday cottage.
Guest from Thundersley stayed for 7 nights.
Nice place to stay, was some building work going on nearby but didn't really affect us as we were out during the day. Really comfortable and would stay again. Courtyard is shared with the B & B so didn't use but was welcome to do so. Perfect base of us.
Guest from Gouda stayed for 7 nights.
We had a very lovely stay in Wadebridge. A good pub around the corner and a lot of day trip opportunities. Unfortunately it wasn't clear who the owner was, we spoke with a couple of people and we understood from one of them that the owner was away during our stay so that was a bit confusing. The house itself was fine; nice kitchen and living room with comfy chair and sofas. The bed was very good and there was a lot of space in the bedroom and bathroom. If there is one thing to complain about it should be how clean the house was. On arrival we found that the kitchen was not clean at all. There were breadcrumbs and dust on the worktops and the table and the fridge didn't smell very nice at all and hadn't been cleaned. I felt the need to clean everything first. There also a foul smell coming from the bottom kitchen cabinets.
Guest from Mansfield stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely cottage with friendly owners. Location is superb for walking into Wadebridge, cycling to padstow and exploring the coast nearby. The property has some minor 'rough edges' when you look closely but is full of character nonetheless. Would happily stay again.
Guest from Warwick stayed for 4 nights.

Guest from Hull stayed for 7 nights.
Great location for all the sights of Cornwall. Lovely cottage that was very cosy. Jenny was a great host and very helpful with everything. Will definitely look to holiday there again.
Guest from Matlock stayed for 7 nights.
No view but excellent location to see the sights Cornwall has to offer. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Cottage was well equipped with some basic provisions provided too. Shared courtyard with the B&B but we didn't see anyone else! Town centre 5mins walk over the bridge. Would recommend if you want to travel around, not for those that like a pretty view.
Guest from Wolverhampton stayed for 7 nights.
Had a lovely holiday , cottage is in a great location. Very comfortable all round . I would recommend a stair gate as it was difficult keeping the dog downstairs . Also the cottage would benefit from having more plates ,cutlery glasses etc as we couldn't use the dishwasher as kept running out of things so washed everything by hand which was a shame.
Guest from Coventry stayed for 7 nights.
This property is a few minutes walk from the camel trail and the beautiful views along the estuary. The cottage is well equipped and the owners who live next door are very friendly. The only downside is that the property is at the bottom of the hill so there are no views, but there is a pleasant courtyard to sit in.
Guest from Newton Abbot Devon stayed for 5 nights.
Enjoyable stay in nicely furnished cottage,but we thought that £5 per night for our puppy was to much.not over keen on sharing the courtyard which could with a tidying up, and a fresh coat of paint where appropriate.
Guest from Edenbridge stayed for 4 nights.
I have family in Wadebridge so know the area very well. We have travelled round a lot in north Cornwall and this time we were looking for something comfy, with parking, in Wadebridge and had room to accommodate a family gathering. We got it all. Spring Cottage was lovely, quirky, decorated well with some really nice original features and very spacious. The owners Jenny & Steve couldn't be more helpful, fresh eggs from the chickens, offers of more kitchen utensils when we had the family over. The cottage was very well equipped with white goods and had games, tourist information and a very informative welcome folder with all the info we needed. It was perfect for our stay as it took 5 mins to walk into town, we had parking and the rooms were lovely. Wadebridge itself has really grown to be a busy, friendly town offering lots a new & great restaurants, cafes, and shops with 2 supermarkets and 3rd I heard on the way. I will definitely and already have recommend people to come and stay here and will also stay again myself. Very enjoyable, relaxing long weekend, just a shame we had to come back home to work.
Guest from Evesham stayed for 5 nights.
Had a lovely stay at spring garden cottage, well situated for the town of wadebridge . Easy reach to padstow, port Issac , Newquay and all the other surrounding coastal areas. Cottage in well maintained with everything you need for a family of six situated in a small courtyard which is off the main road in a quiet location. This is the second time we as a family have stayed in the cottage and would recommend anyone wanting to stay in this location.
Guest from Fair Oak stayed for 7 nights.
We had a great stay in the cottage , it was warm and very comfortable. However there were a few cooking items and some china that needed to be replaced as they were cracked or very old, we did leave them out with note. I enjoy preparing meals even when on holiday and found several important everyday items missing. The owner was very nice and showed us around when we arrived and kindly left a bottle of wine. However she did admit that she had never stayed in the cottage herself which I think would have been a good thing to do then she would have picked up on the above comments herself. It was a good area to stay with a very good local pub 2 minutes away, Sunday evenings in Wadebridge is not a good time to look for places to eat. The best ones were closed. Overall it was a good week with lovely weather for October.
Guest from Evesham stayed for 7 nights.
