I adore Bodmin Moor, I live on the very edge, and about 50% of my journey's start by crossing some part of the Moor. The Moor is in constant change, new growth, new life, maturing nature, then decay to make way for next year's growth....More

Bodmin Moor is an amazing place. Wild and rugged but also full of history from pre-historic standing stones to the remnants of the tin and copper mining days of the 19C. Sheep, cattle and ponies graze freely.

We spent most of our time with Susan of Heritage Safaris exploring areas of the moor. What a fascinating place it is even though we only saw a small part of it. Wonderful area to explore -- especially with a knowledgeable guide.

Wonderful rambling environment. There are so many historic sites on the moor and sites of former mining operations and ancient settlements.

It is not one of these places where you park, take some pics and drive on. It requires good walking skills and shoes to see everything and enjoy the view from the top.

This is a pleasant moor for a stroll. There are granite sculptures to see, wild ponies to look at, or just stroll in the peaceful clear air and relax. A beautiful and unspoiled landscape.

A beautiful place to find peace and seclusion providing you select the right part of the moor. On parts there are ancient stone circles and remains of stone built houses and enclosures. Ponies and cattle also roam parts of the moor. Weather can be very...More

Nice place to walk or drive around and relax in the country. There are great views, and lots of livestock to see. Unfortunately it rains a lot too!

One of our favourite places to drive around in Cornwall and look at the stunning scenery including the lakes and pools. Also discovered Warleggan this time which is a small village with free-roaming cattle which is a site to behold.

If you are using normal shoes just be careful it is all too easy to trip on hidden rocks and depressions in the ground and this could result in a twisted ankle without the support of walking boots.
