A great place for walking your dogs and enjoying the simple life and fresh air. We have enjoyed watching the sheep with their young lambs, the ponies with their foals and the long horned cattle roaming freely across the moorland.

Having family who live just off Bodmin Moor; I've come to know them reasonably well. There are wild horses here pretty much year round, which are quite friendly- especially for a carrot I might add! There are also a few 'tin mine holes' dotted about,...More
