About Sam Herbert
We have loved the South West and Cornwall in particular since our very first visit in the 1980s. We used to come here every summer for family camping holidays when the kids were small. It seems inevitable that we would end up buying a property here.
Why Sam Herbert chose Wadebridge
We bought this house in Wadebridge in 2003. We liked Wadebridge because of its location on the river Camel. It isn't as as crowded or busy as some of the resorts on the coast but the nearest beaches are only 15 minutes by car. In 2010 the whole family completely refurbished the house and added a roof terrace overlooking the river Camel. Each year we use the winter months to improve and maintain the property so that it stays in top condition for the rental season.
What makes this House unique
We love to sit on the roof terrace and watch the tide ebb and flow on the river Camel. The town centre is a 2 minute walk away across the river which is very convenient for shopping or going out in the evenings. One of our favourite beaches at New Polzeath is only a 15 minute drive away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Very comfortable, well appointed house that was very convenient for the town.
We had an enjoyable stay at Camel Prospect. The house was comfortable, clean and well equipped. An added bonus was its closeness to the town centre with all the shops and amenities - just a two minute walk across the bridge. The entrance lane was a bit scary to start with but we soon got used to it. If we return to Wadebridge sometime we would certainly consider staying there again.
Really glad to hear you enjoyed your holiday at Camel Prospect and that you made the most of being able to get to Wadebridge on foot so easily. Sorry about the narrow entrance way to the courtyard, glad to hear that you got to grips with it - hopefully it was worth it for the private parking! We'll look forward to welcoming you back if you fancy another holiday here in the future :)
Maybe a need of a little TLC downstairs, bedrooms felt damp & beds in need of replacement
Great location for Camel trail 👍
Really sorry to hear that you weren't fully impressed with your stay. If you'd let us know at the time we'd have loved to have been able to help improve things for you, which is why we leave a contact number in the welcome notes. The house has a heat recovery system which could have been adjusted if you felt the bedrooms were damp. We recently had another guest review on Owners Direct which complemented the house for having 'very comfy beds' so its a shame to hear that they weren't to your taste. I really hope you had a great holiday of it all the same and that you enjoyed cycling the Camel Trail straight from the house.
Great house in central location
Had a great week. Everything you could need. Great location for beaches & tourist attractions.
Hi Lynn, Glad to hear that you had a great holiday of it and you enjoyed the local beaches and attractions! You'll be very welcome to stay again in the future!
Lovely accommodation in a perfect location, loved everything about it.
We have just come back from a week at Camel Prospect and absolutely loved it. The accommodation was lovely and had everything you needed whilst away from home. It also had very comfy beds which is such a bonus when you are on holiday. The location is ideal just a minutes walk into the town which means you can have days without having to use the car. We cycled the Camel Trail to Padstow day and also went to the Regal cinema in Wadebridge one evening which is an absolute must whatever is on. There is lots to do and see nearby a great relaxing week all round!! Thanks. Liz
Thank you for your lovely review Liz! Really happy to hear that you enjoyed Camel Prospect and that you had a great holiday based in Wadebridge! We really love that town is such an easy walk across the bridge too, glad to hear that you made the most of some local days without having to use the car. It's nice to have found a fellow lover of the Regal cinema too!
This is our first time staying at Camel Prospect and it certainly did not disappoint. Superb location and base to visit the many incredible places and charms Kernow has to offer. Also, the opportunity to get more acquainted with Wadebridge as the walk in and around the town was always a delight.
The property is first class and set-up perfectly - the bottle of French red on arrival particularly pleasing!! Sam was always helpful and super approachable which makes a big difference to your stay.
Hopefully, in the very near future we'll be back to stay again.
Thank you for your lovely review! Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Camel Prospect and you made the most of being able to explore Wadebridge and the lovely spots around the area . Great to hear that the house served you well and that the red wine hit the spot! You were ideal guests and we'd be delighted to have you stay again whenever you're next heading to Cornwall!
Great place to stay
Camel Prospect was ideal for two families with two toddlers. We were visiting friends and the property was ideal for that. The property was very safe for the toddlers and well set out for sharing the house. The path up to the house is quite narrow but everyone managed! It’s very close to lots of beautiful beaches, not too far from Padstow and close to shops, restaurants and pubs.
Thank you for your lovely review, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Camel Prospect! Really happy to hear that it suited you as two families sharing the space and that you enjoyed the local beaches and Wadebridge's shops and restaurants. Hopefully you had a good chance to explore Daymer Bay and Polzeath beach. Glad to hear that the narrow entrance to the courtyard was negotiated well by you all - it takes a bit of getting used to at first but the trade off is a nice quiet space with no passing traffic! You're very welcome to stay again in the future when you next fancy a holiday based in Wadebridge :)
