LIVING IN CORNWALL
The Atlantic coast of North Cornwall stretches for over forty miles along a wildly rugged and breathtaking landscapes. The vibrant coastal towns, harbours and villages are each steeped in history, huddling against the majestic cliffs as if seeking protection from the wild and unpredictable sea. An easy commute by road from the South East of England, or by air to Newquay, Exeter or Bristol airports, North Cornwall is a hub for thrill seekers who can choose to get active both in or out of the water. The north coast bays are popular with sailors, surfers and swimmers as well as a myriad of other water sports, while inland, golfers, walkers and families alike can make the most of the many facilities and attractions on offer. The area sucessfully combines the hip and happening, an increasingly excellent choice of food & drink with some truly breathtaking natural scenery.
We occasionally sell some premium properties in the nearby market town of Wadebridge, voted one of the Sunday Times best places to live in Britain:
"This is a cornish pasty sort of a town — solid and reliable. People know the names of each other’s dogs. It is also thoroughly liveable, yet it has every reason to show off. The schools are good and the Camel estuary, Bodmin Moor and long, sandy beaches are just 20 minutes’ drive away."
Set at the mouth of the Camel River just inland from Padstow and Rock, Wadebridge offers a good mix of independent shops, interesting restaurants and is also the mid point of the popular Camel Trail that runs along the River from Padstow to Bodmin.
