Always dominant, but often threatening, and sometimes majestic, Bodmin Moor acts like a gateway into south and west Cornwall. The county’s peaks “Brown Willy” and “Rough Tor” sit towards the northern edge of the moor and the weather over the moor can sometimes be very different to that elsewhere in the county. Around this magnificent landscape are some of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. With historic houses set around a classic village green, Blisland is probably one of the most photographed villages in Cornwall, but no doubt closely followed by St.Kew, St.Tudy, St.Mabyn, St.Breward and Altarnun. Cycling fans head for Cardinham woods or the Lanhydrock Estate.
