We had enjoyed our first bike ride so much we decided that we would do another one. This time in Cornwall going from Wadebridge to Padstow along the Camel Trail  

 We really enjoyed Padstow and once we had parked the bikes up we enjoyed a coffee overlooking the bay, a lovely walk up the hill towards the beach and the husband enjoyed an original Cornish Pasty before cycling back to Wadebridge to drop the bikes back.

We decided that we really wanted to visit Lands End, it was a two hour drive from where we were staying but I’m really pleased we decided to make the trip. The views from down there were just breathtaking. It also helped as it was quite quiet despite being a Sunday so we didn’t find it too touristy.  

   Lunch with the most amazing view! 

After a walk around the costal path we headed to St Ives. We decided to do the park and ride (which is actually a train) as I had read that the parking in St Ives was quite difficult. Add to that it was fast turning into a gorgeous afternoon I think the train from Lelant was the best choice. The train comes in along the coast so you get some amazing views over the different bays on the way in. 

I must admit, we loved St Ives, from the different bays and beaches, the seafront walks, the harbour and the coastal path we could have spent much longer there.  


For our last day in Cornwall we decided to take it easy and just go for a nice beach walk. We headed along the coast to Watergate Bay which has a gorgeous beach and is dog friendly.  

We all loved Cornwall so much and will be returning that’s for sure! 

To break up our return journey we planned to stop off for a few days in North Wales, though the thought of taking the tent down then putting it back up again was far too much so we heading back to the wood pods for one night visiting Ludlow on the way.  

We then made our way to North Wales for a few nights before heading home. 

We were really lucky with the weather and enjoyed watching the sunset with a glass of wine back at the campsite.  


Our last day was another lovely walk around the Welsh coastline.       

Before heading back to pack our home from home up.     

We had a great trip and didn’t stop the full 11 nights we were away, which was proven when my Fitbit stats arrived!  

This trip showed me that I can camp in complete comfort for longer than 3 nights and now the quest is on to find somewhere just as good for next year! 

Anyone been to any amazing dog friendly Cornwall campsites?
