Escape to bodmin Moor
Part of North Cornwall Bodmin Moor covers a large area that is between Bolventor all the way down to St Neot.
Our recommended route would be to start at Bolventor, travel down to Golitha Falls, over to Millpool via St Neot and back up the A30 via Temple to Bolventor.
Places of note to visit
Bodmin Jail. This has to be one of the scariest places in Cornwall with a history of scary stories and a number of hangings.
Golitha Falls. This is a great place to go for a walk or even if you fancy, dip your toes in for a little paddle. Along part of hte River Fowey, you’ll find it flows through the woodland of Draynes Wood with waterfalls and more.
Minions. No, not what you initially think of with Gru and his minions… although could be fun! Minions is the highest village in Cornwall. A very interesting spot to visit where you’ll find that the moor meets areas of archaeological interest. Tin and copper mining took place here until 1914. There is an old Engine house from one of the old mines is now a museum.
Cardinham Woods. If you are taking your mountain bike with you on your trip, then this place has a brilliant trail for you to try. The walks here are also excellent and for when you are done, there is a café here for you to recharge.
