Getting into Padstow & Wadebridge without a car?


Here at The Laurels we often get asked is it possible to get into Padstow & Wadebridge without a car?

The answer is most definitely YES

Whether you are a cycling enthusiast, love a good walk, like to catch the bus or prefer the convenience of a taxi there's options for everyone.

Take a look at the map below that we've put together that shows you how to walk or cycle from The Laurels down to The Camel Trail and then into either Padstow or Wadebridge.

We are VERY pleased to say that the council have cleared what was a very overgrown and boggy bridle path and put stone down so we now have a safe route to walk or cycle without having to go on or cross the main road. Please note at times the farmers end of the lane can still get muddy if the tractors are working in wet weather. 

 You'll also pass The Quarryman Inn, a lovely dog friendly pub perfect for a cheeky pint on the way home.

Distances to:

The Quarryman Inn 1.3 miles
Access to The Camel Trail 2 miles
Padstow (end of the trail) 5.5 miles
Padstow (Harbour) 6 miles
Wadebridge (Lidl) 3.75 miles

Please note if you know you need a taxi on a certain evening I would book well in advance (also book your return) as they get very full very quickly during peak times.
