The town is famous for its wonderful stone bridge that sits at its centre. There is a wide variety of interesting boutique shops and restaurants as well as all the local services you could ask for. Recreation plays a big part and there are numerous sports clubs, Football, Rugby, Cricket as well as Tennis and Bowls. The Camel Trail runs through the town and provides a wonderful route into Padstow alongside the River in one direction and a lovely country experience to Bodmin going inland.
