Bodmin Moor, North Cornwall

While staying ensconced in your peaceful retreat is tempting if you fancy venturing out, there is plenty to explore in the surrounding area. First, enjoy a trip down to the Camel Trial, with over 19 miles of off-road track, eventually ending in Padstow, a beautiful harbour with an excellent variety of shops and restaurants. Next, visit the quaint village of Blisland, with a unique local pub and its beautiful 12th-century church. Blisland church is the only one in the UK devoted to a pair of saints, St Protus and St Hyacinth. Sir John Betjeman has written and spoken about Blisland Church on several occasions: 

"Of all the country churches of the west I have seen, I think that Blisland is the most beautiful.” These words have resonated with many of the visitors who have come to see the church. 


        Cycling and walking

The Camel Trail is an 18-mile, essentially traffic-free, surfaced and virtually level multi-use trail. It provides access to the beautiful Cornish countryside along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. The route is suitable for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. In addition, the trail has various pit stops ranging from cafes to pubs. This is within a 10-minute drive from the property. 


Our hidden treasures.

 There are so many reasons to visit Cornwall, or Kernow as it’s also known, from the beautiful beaches to the famous pasty; Cornwall also boasts the longest Coastline of any English county, over 1000km of it, and you can experience it all from the comfort of Moorland Breeze. Here are some things you can do in England’s most southwest county.



Cornwall is also the home to the largest captive rainforest in the world. The Eden Project
houses two biomes which hold over 1000 varieties of plants from Southeast Asia, West
Africa and Tropical South America. Due to the environment these plants live in, the
Biomes have to stay at a warm temperature, anywhere between 18 to 35 degrees


You can’t visit Cornwall without trying some of the local delicacies; the Cornish Pasty
being the most famous, historically the lunchtime choice for Cornwall’s miners, it’s now a
staple for visitors from all over the world. Follow that with some clotted cream on a
scone or a Cornish split (Just remember the Cornish way is jam first, then cream).


Cornwall has a long history with pirates, it was in Cornwall where they would smuggle goods in and out of the country, and you can visit tunnels in Perranporth and Penzance that smugglers used to get their loot into the hands of the merchants. Polperro was infamous as a smuggler's haunt. Visit the Jamaica Inn and relive the smugglers' experience at their Smugglers Museum – it houses the most extensive collections of smuggling artefacts in the UK.


Cornwall has more coastline than any other English county, over 1000km of it, so you can
get out and experience clifftop walks like nowhere else. Take in the breathtakingly
beautiful Minack Theatre, or track down locations from the most recent series of Poldark,
with filming taking place in St Agnes, Charlestown and Porthgwarra, or visit the magical
Lost Gardens of Heligan.




Make a splash

Cornwall is famed for its beaches, they attract more than 5 million visitors a year, and it’s
easy to see why. Golden sands and turquoise waters, protected by sheer cliffs, many of
Cornwall’s beaches look like a tropical paradise. The beaches are family-friendly, with over
Fifty beaches are watched over by lifeguards. We are set between the coast and these can be easily reached within a 25-minute drive. 



If you want to take your trip to the beach one step further then surfing is that step,
Cornwall offers some world-class surfing, Fistral Beach & Perranporth are some of the
most famous spots, but you can surf all over Cornwall, just remember to bring your wet
suit, the waters aren’t quite tropical temperatures.

Scenic towns and villages

A little mooch 


Cornwall’s beauty lies in the small towns and villages scattered throughout the county, from Falmouth to Padstow, Looe to Polperro, each with unique quirks and attractions. From the Fal Estuary at Falmouth, St Michael’s Mount near Penzance, and
famed seafood restaurants in Padstow, where fresh seafood is served that were caught locally earlier that day, you can’t get fresher. Looe and Polperro are within 35 minutes and offer idyllic villages to explore; visiting Looe Island, once a
holy pilgrimage site, is now a sanctuary for rare plants and wildlife. 

The tricky part will be choosing what to do first...
