Coombe Farm has stables for horses, and can provide secure storage for bikes upon request. Here are a few ideas of good places to explore:

Cardinham Woods

This mixed woodland is beautiful, and a great place to enjoy the marked trails for walking, cycling or horse riding. Bikes can be hired onsite. There is also a children playground and a yummy coffee shop. Free entry, parking charges.

Caradon Trail

This trail, popular with cyclists & walkers, covers a 17 mile stretch (though as options for smallers trails) over some of the most beautiful parts of Bodmin Moor including The Hurlers, and Cheesewring. Download the App!

Camel Trail

(Wadebridge to Padstow) This is 5.2 miles, and should take around 30 minutes to cycle, but it may take you longer as you stop to soak up the fabulous coastal views. It is an easy, traffic free, flat ride with good surface. Ideal for young children.


(National Trust, entrance fees apply) In the wooded estate of this Victorian Country house, trails have been specially designed with cyclists in mind. They are graded from green – red to cater for everyone. Bikes are available for hire. A copy of the trails map can be downloaded from their website to help you plan your routes in advance.

Tamar Trails

No booking required, just turn up and explore 25km of trails through the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bikes can be hired here and the stone and gravel trails are open all year. Explore the remains of old mines or jump off your bike and try your hand at one of the trail activities. Water sports also available, and if you fancy a non-water-based type of surfing, tree-surfing involves swinging from the tree tops! Go on… why not?
