Bodmin Moor

landscape | bodmin


The Moor, which first became famous more than 4000 years ago by the Bronze age settlers has so much to offer the adventurous visitors: imagine a terrain with crystal-clear streams, horses and sheep grazing, big boulders of granite outcrops, historic earth works, moorland villages, and to sum it all a sense of being away from it all.

This spectacular landscaped Bodmin Moor has inspired writers, sculptors and poets to produce works of art and has generated a blending of folklore and legend passed down from one generation to the next.

The Moor is not huge, extending just about 10 miles by 10 miles in area. The place evokes a sense of isolation and remoteness, hence the explanation why it is always ignored as people pass by speedily on the road to somewhere else.
In fact, if you ask people about Cornwall, the chance of Bodmin Moor being mentioned is very slim. It does not blend in with the wonderful beaches and spectacular gardens of Cornwall but is maintains its stunning countryside views and rural setting that evokes total relaxation.

However, just because you think Bodmin Moor seems isolated does not mean it is not worth a visit. You may be surprised at the things you can find in the place, like the chance to explore the caves at Carnglaze Caverns. Bodmin Moor provides you a chance to enjoy the sound of birds and the countryside, quite a change from the hustle and bustle of the modern life in the city.
