What’s Going Down in Bodmin Town

Guests making the journey to Mother Ivey’s Bay over the coming months will no doubt notice that Cornwall Council are busy making considerable changes both on the A30 & in nearby Bodmin.

The route through Bodmin is a popular alternative to the traditional scenic & towing routes into the Holiday Park, and a common stop off for supplies on route.

Work is currently underway on the ‘Building a better Bodmin’ project. This is a series of highway improvements which aims to improve traffic flows, make it safer for people walking and cycling in the area and provide a catalyst for the regeneration of Bodmin town centre.

One exciting aspect of the project is to create a cycle link between Lanhydrock, the Camel Trail and Cardinham Woods, connecting Bodmin to these local attractions, popular with families & mountain bike enthusiasts.  If you’ve not yet explored these awesome estates and trails, get on your bike and add them to your itinerary.  The kids will love them!

Check out this video from Cornwall Council which showcases the area’s cycling facilities and explains the planned works.

How To Avoid Delays Into North Cornwall

There are diversions signposted through Bodmin town however during this time, we recommend that visitors to Mother Ivey’s Bay avoid Bodmin town centre altogether and instead follow one of the two routes recommended on our ‘How to Find Us’ page.  These routes involve either following the ‘North Cornwall / Wadebridge / Camelford / A395 (A39)’ turning off the A30 or, if towing, follow the A30 beyond Bodmin to the ‘Indian Queens’ junction & following the signs for Wadebridge until reaching the signpost for Padstow.

How Long Will The Bodmin Works Go On For?

We’ve spoken to the team responsible for the works and they have told us that the works are likely to be complete in time for the Royal Cornwall Show weekend at the beginning of June.

However you choose to get to us this spring, the team here at Mother Ivey’s Bay Holiday Park look forward to offering you a warm welcome.
