Fun and adventure near your Bodmin cottage
Get out and about on Bodmin Moor, a wild, sweeping landscape
scattered with remote villages and dominated by huge granite tors.
This is real adventure country made for boots and binoculars and,
as well as extraordinary scenery, you'll find Bodmin ponies,
ancient stone circles, mindboggling sunsets and the legendary
Jamaica Inn of smuggling and Du Maurer fame - a great spot for
refreshments. Another option is to walk or cycle the 17-mile,
traffic-free Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow.
Treat the kids to a day out at Colliford Lake Park and Kids
Kingdom, or hop aboard the Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway and
explore the countryside with Paddington Bear. Other local
attractions include the Eden Project, Pencarrow House & Gardens
and the Lanhydrock House and Garden, where you can tinkle the
ivories of a Steinway in the Long Gallery.
