With Bodmin Moor on our doorstep, we are spoilt for choice for lovely moorland and country walks. Just by the cottages is the Two Valleys Walk along the River Fowey and over farmland, open moorland and forest. It is a good walk for a sunny afternoon and passes by the London Inn in the picturesque village of St Neot.
Less than a mile away is Golitha Falls where the river rushes through a steeply sided wooded valley in a series of spectacular cascades - one of our favourite walks.
The moorland village of Minions is also a popular destination for walkers. Here you can explore the Hurlers Stone Circles, dating back around 4000 years (pictured above), the iconic Cheesewring and mining engine houses, chimney stacks and other relics of the Caradon Mining District that form part of an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
