Bodmin moor with its miles of open moorland, mining heritage and prehistoric stone circles is within easy reach of Launceston

Towards Bodmin Moor

You don't have to venture far from Launceston before you notice the lush agricultural pastures are giving way to a wilder landscape with the rocky outcrops of granite tors visible on the skyline. Bodmin Moor is a mixture of farmland and moorland. The further you venture, the more you become aware of the peace and solitude of your surroundings.

On the edges of the moor but still within easy distance of Launceston lie self catering holiday cottages, farm b&b's and guest houses offering superb welcoming accommodation for those who want to walk, relax and explore the ancient villages dotted across the moor.   

Whilst Bodmin Moor is an excellent area for walkers, there are many other activities and family attractions in this area of Cornwall. Pencarrow House, The Camel Trail, Sterts Theatre are all nearby as are the attractions in Launceston. Jamaica Inn, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier's famous novel stands near the centre of the moor. Throughout the year there are events held in the local villages and attractions, including art and craft shows and local produce at farmer markets. Visit village pubs for local ales and a hearty home cooked meal after a tramp across the tors.

For those interested in flora and fauna, local heritage, landscapes or myths and legends, a holiday in the Bodmin Moor area offers diversity, seclusion and relaxation.
