Thinking of spending a couple of days cycling the Camel Train in North Cornwall.

I'd like to stay somewhere close by so we can get cycling straight from the pitch, anyone know of a CL or CS that fits the bill?

Whilst my kids are competent cyclists I've left it a bit late to learn to ride, as I've just bought my first ever bike aged 49! So I'm thinking the Camel Trail will be great for me as it's off road and level, being an old railway line. Any tips welcome!

There is one right on the trail at the bodmin end - i will find out what it is called! Looks fairly pretty!

Just had a look and can't find the one at dunmere bridge - might find it with a more detailed search. But - it did remind me of one, which is ruthern valley 3/4 mile away. That is a lovely site! Up in the woods with great play areas for the kids, but no club house, so quiet. Owners are very nice, has all the usual facilities including on site shop.

One of those close by but out the way sites - bodmin is also good for touring cornwall as it is right in the middle!!

We stayed a couple of nights at...

http://www.padstowtouringpark.co.uk/how_to_find_us.html

OK. Showers good. And a lovely walk into Padstow through fields initally and then down the road and Camel Trail plus bike hire is at the bottom. To the left is Rick Steins popular fish and chip shop and to the right is a walk along the river. Straight on is wet. Just going to see if I have any pics.

yers some..

Bet that hurt. :D ON their website they have made dramatic improvements getting an AA four star and have new roads, some new toilet blocks and other things I cannot remember but it is in the News section of the website.
