The ancient market town of Liskeard is well situated for a cottage holiday, either for heading further inland, to discover Bodmin Moor, or towards the coast, in particular the pretty, unspoilt beauty of the nearby Rame Peninsula. The town’s market still runs each Monday and Thursday, and there are a number of interesting buildings of note, including Cornwall’s second largest church, and the Victorian Guildhall and clock tower. Close to Liskeard, Golitha Falls are a popular local beauty spot, a short half hour or so walk rewards the visitor with a picturesque woodland waterfall.
A drive around the scenic Rame peninsula or a stroll along Rame Head affords lovely coastal views, and there are some good beaches to be enjoyed, most notably the four mile sandy stretch at Whitsand Bay. Take time too to call in at Mount Edgecumbe Country Park and House at Cremyll – a country home in a glorious setting, formerly residence of the Earls of Edgecumbe.
