Things To Do in Camelford
Your tranquil location where you can play a game of tennis or two during your stay isn’t far from the Cornish North Coast and you can be at the historic harbour town of Boscastle in under 20 minutes. Here you can visit The Cobweb Inn near the quay, a former liquor warehouse dating back to the 1700s. It serves a good range of local ales now and the freshly caught mussels are on the menu most days. The Cobweb is famous for its live band and pirate nights. The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic is harbourside too, where you see thousands of objects and ever-changing exhibitions relating to magic, the occult and witchcraft. Boat trips run regularly from the harbour to Long Island, where puffins and seals are in residence. You could also opt for a stint of wreck fishing for conger and bass.
Beyond Boscastle, there is the unspoilt beach of Trebarwith Strand, which is excellent for bass fishing.
Walk for five minutes along the cliff top to arrive at this beautiful stretch of dog-friendly beach. A rocky plateau accesses it, so wear sensible footwear, but once you are there, the long stretch of golden sand is great for soaking up the sun and watching the surfers and bodyboarders in the water. If you are up for trying it out for yourself, there are places to hire equipment. There are also a couple of cafes and a pub near the beach.
Inland you can spend an entire day going to or going through some of the most characterful villages in the UK, stopping for a light bite or stretching your legs on the iconic moorland surrounding the ancient town of Bodmin.
Instinctively holidaymakers are drawn to the top Cornish coastal spots such as Port Isaac, Rock, Falmouth, St Ives, Newquay and Bude, but there is so much more of this beautiful county to discover. Further up the north coast and inland, there are certainly not as many crowds, especially during high season, and it is an area that is still Cornwall’s hidden gem.
Position yourself in this exclusive complex that is out of the way but not off the beaten track and is centrally located so that you are within even distance to inland towns like Camelford and Launceston, historic harbours like Boscastle, and stretches of pristine coastline.
Inland Camelford is about four miles from Water’s Edge. It was once on a main medieval trading route and its importance is evident in some of the ancient buildings that still stand. The main street and marketplace have two greengrocers and a traditional Cornish butcher. If you are a keen walker, there is a scenic ramble on the River Camel, and you can stop for some lunch at the Riverside restaurant.
The cottage made for two is an ideal romantic retreat and it comes with a beautiful riverside aspect where you can dine alfresco on the private patio and enjoy the birdlife and gentle sounds of the flowing water.
