Bodmin Moor Area

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

Bodmin Moor, in Cornish, Goon Brenn, spans the central high ground of Cornwall stretching from St Cleer and St Neot in the South East of Cornwall to Davidstow and beyond in the North.

Numerous moorland towns and villages including Altarnun, St Breward, Blisland, Bolventor, Cardinham, Minions, St Clether and Temple offer a unique view into this heartland of Cornwall.

Rock strewn tors and windswept hills abound at Rough Tor, Brown Willy, Kilmar Tor and Caradon Hill.

Dozmary Pool, a location famous for its association with Arthurian legend lies at the heart of the moor.

Archaeological monuments and ecclesiastical treasures abound with ancient clapper bridges, stone circles, standing stones, holy wells located right across the Moor and its towns and villages.

Ponies, cattle and sheep graze on open stretches of the Moor so please take care when driving on unfenced roads and lanes as it's likely you could encounter a group of them meandering down the middle of the road.

Bodmin today gives its name to the moor which in former times was known as Fowey Moor because of the River Fowey rising here.

The towns and villages of Bodmin Moor offer a unique insight into Cornwall's granite uplands and its history.

Beyond the moor lies Launceston, known as the gateway to Cornwall.

Holiday accommodation is widespread and varied across the towns and villages of this area offering something to suit every visitor and the moor is an ideal place for horse riding and cycling.
