Did you know...Scarlet’s Well is rumoured to cure ailments with its waters?
Perched beneath Bodmin Moor, Bodmin is an historic town perfectly positioned amidst Cornwall’s treasures.
Aside from the stunning moors on its doorstep, Bodmin is also within convenient distance of both the north and south coasts of Cornwall. Nearby Wadebridge and Padstow are beautiful beach resorts, with dozens of sandy beaches and coves to choose from for some family time on the shore. Padstow is also home to some impressive restaurants - perfect for rounding off a day by the sea.
Those who have read Daphne Du Maurier’s ‘The Jamaica Inn’ will find it easy to see why the moor inspired such a dramatic tale. There are hundreds of walks to choose from, taking in wildlife, historic sites and industrial remains. Bodmin Moor is also perfect for Letter Boxing, so why not combine a Bodmin walk with the opportunity to find a new stamp! Refreshments can be few and far between while on the moor, so pack a picnic!
