Barkleys B&B Information


Barkley’s Bed and Breakfast is in the market town of Wadebridge between Port Isaac and Padstow in beautiful North Cornwall. The landscape and stunning beaches which make up the dramatic North Cornwall Coastline stretches for miles, with many hidden away gems along the way. Wadebridge itself has its origins in the 14th century with the River Camel passing through the town on its way down the estuary to Padstow. The Camel Cycle/Walking Trail (originally the thriving railway line), runs along side so there are many opportunities to relax, enjoy the town and other easy to reach attractions. Barkleys has three en-suite guest rooms to choose from, a large bright breakfast room and cosy lounge for guests relaxation. Renovated in 2016 this Edwardian house sits just a two minute walk from the centre of Wadebridge where there are many interesting independent shops, a selection of pubs and quality restaurants for you to enjoy. The rooms feature comfy beds dressed in fresh white linen with soft fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries. They have modern televisions the front rooms with DVD, hairdryers and either the latest “jet shower” wet room or private bathroom with bath and shower. There are tea and coffee making facilities in each room. Breakfast at Barkleys is a truly local affair freshly prepared to your requirements. It doesn’t have to be the “full Cornish” every day, there is a breakfast buffet table with cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts and fresh juices and other alternatives such as smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or porridge. If it is the full “Cornish” you can look forward to local sausages and bacon along with tomatoes and mushrooms all topped off with fresh free range Cornish eggs cooked just how you like them. With a cafetiere of Fair Trade coffee or a pot of Cornish tea, local preserves and bread from the towns bakery I aim to make breakfast the best start to your day.

My name is Linda Dutton and I am the host and owner of Barkleys Bed and Breakfast in Wadebridge. Barkleys has been open since 2016 and I have been delighted to welcome new and returning guests each year since. In 1986 with some family already living in Cornwall I decided to move away from my London city banking life to bring up my newly born daughter in a beautiful part of the country. This is where my career in hospitality began. Through hardwork and taking the opportunities as well as some risks that came my way over the years I built a very successful outside catering business. I catered for wedding, parties, charity events and also had several large event contracts the last being with the Eden Project during its build. My fascination and drive to open my own Bed and Breakfast came after I moved away from outside catering and worked for five years as the Manager of the Padstow Tourist Information Centre. It was an interesting time and I experienced and learnt all about Cornwall’s tourism products and the needs and desires of the visitors. With this knowledge I decided to convert my house to welcome guests and in June 2016 Barkleys Bed and Breakfast was born.
