Trebetherick lies on the North Cornish coast by the Camel estuary and near popular Padstow. The village itself is midway between the villages of Polzeath and Rock, both of which can be reached on foot. Trebetherick has two pubs offering quality food and there is a handy village shop just at the end of the cottage drive.
Wadebridge is the nearest large town with several supermarkets as well as specialist shops offering local crafts.
Padstow, on the opposite side of the estuary, can be reached by regular taxi boat from Rock (weather and tides permitting) and is well worth a visit. Often described as ‘Padstein’, it is the adopted home of Rick Stein and boasts his famous seafood restaurant as well as his café, fish and chip shop and delicatessen.
Polzeath is a surfers' paradise. The large sandy beach is very popular with families and there are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants in the village.
The coastal village of Rock, as well as sailing, offers pubs and useful shops and the walk back to Trebetherick at low tide is a must.
