The vast, windswept and atmospheric Bodmin Moor is a place of myth and legend.
Of ancient stone circles and medieval farms, ancient woodland and granite tors. Couple this with its 4,000 year old tin mining heritage, and it’s no surprise that Bodmin Moor has been given World Heritage status.
Bodmin’s 150 square miles of wild moorland and dense forest is a magnet for hikers, with a myriad of trails for all abilities criss-crossing the moor. Hike up to the peaks of Rough Tor or Brown Willy for spectacular views across the county, and visit Jamaica Inn to discover why Du Maurier found this place so compelling.
In stark contrast to rugged Bodmin Moor, the Tamar Valley is a lush and peaceful wooden valley and a haven for wildlife. This tranquil corner of Cornwall stretches from the moors all the way to East Devon, and is home to market towns, tranquil gardens and some of Cornwall’s finest private houses.
