  • "Wonderful situation in the middle of Bodmin Moor."

    Has fantastic views. Extremely large space but could do with personalising- cushions, rugs as can be chilly at night and perhaps some books, DVDs on shelves. Nice clean bathrooms but kitchen a bit of a nightmare!

  • "Unfortunately the cottage we originally booked became unexpectedly unavailable at almost the last minute (literally only a couple of hours before check in)."

    We were offered to stay at Wheal Tor Cottage instead, despite there being no downstairs bedroom for our disabled mum/mum in law, we accepted and stayed here instead. Beautiful cottage with absolutely stunning views over Dartmoor, and despite the initial problems we very much enjoyed our stay here.

About the location


Liskeard 5 miles.

Pensilva is a moorland village with its origins in Cornwall’s tin mining history. This part of Bodmin Moor has all the raw beauty of a wilderness with many well known landmarks including the rugged Cheesewring Quarry, where granite was taken to build Plymouth’s Devonport Dockyard, and also the remote village of Minions, home of the famous Hurlers stone circles. Further west there are spectacular walks to Rough Tor and Brown Willy. There are a host of watersports available at nearby Siblyback Reservoir which is also an excellent spot for fishing. The market town of Liskeard is close by, while the famous fishing port of Looe on the south Cornwall coast is approximately 14 miles away and other noted coastal beauty spots such as Polperro and Fowey are all within close proximity.
