The Camel Trail - Padstow to Wadebridge

Another walk we did whilst in Cornwall was a 5 mile stretch of The Camel Trail from Padstow to Wadebridge, following the route of the old disused railway line running parallel with the Camel Estuary.

I appreciate I've featured several walks recently on the blog, so please, do let me know if you're thinking "oh no, not another load of pictures from a walk"
Believe me, they won't feature that often as I'm not actually a huge fan of long strenuous walks!
But anyway, back to the route in hand...

Can you tell it was a railway line...?

  1. I'm absolutely loving these posts! I'm visiting the U.K. in about a month and we're planning on doing a few nice walks, so this is getting me all excited! We're not going to Cornwall, but to Cranbrook (which is Kent, if I'm not mistaken) but I can imagine it'll be just as lovely! Or so I hope at least.

    1. Ahh, glad to hear it! Kent is one place I've never been to, it's supposed to be really nice and I'd love to visit Margate (another faded seaside resourt like Blackpool!). Make sure you take lots of pictures :-) x

  2. Oh you've just brought back some lovely memories for me. The Camel Trail was the first bike ride I did with my bike and I adored it - so easy and scenic and calm and varied. Perfect!

    1. It's definately a lovely trail - gorgeous views and a fairly easy calm walk. A cup of hot tea from the lovely Dougal was an added bonus as well! :-) x

    1. Oooh, have fun! The bit between Padstow and Wadebrige is lovely and filled with flowers along the way :-)
      If you go to Padstow, I can throughly recommend The Chough Bakery and their Chicken, Bacon, Leek and Cheese pasty - delicious! x

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
