Bodmin Moor is of one the last great unspoilt areas in the South West first farmed over 4000 years ago by bronze age settlers. Much of its prehistoric and medieval past remains untouched by the passing of the centuries. Granite tors tower over the open moorland, providing inspiration to writers and poets.
The moorland is a wonderful area for walking and brings you closer to the fascinating variety of landscape. Named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, most of the moor has been declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Bodmin Moor has also been awarded World Heritage Site status which recognises the importance of the tin mining industry dating back over 4,000 years.
Boasting the two highest peaks in Cornwall, the views are spectacular as you gaze from a great height upon ancient buildings and medieval farms. This land is full of history and waiting to be explored.
Reaching from Bodmin Moor to Dartmoor and another Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is the Tamar Valley. The estuary is an important habitat for wildlife. Again, great walking country but visitors can explore the area by train or boat.
