Bodmin is an unspoilt town nestled into the green Cornish countryside where you are as likely to see ponies from your holiday cottage window as you are remnants of the mining era. The town is shrouded in Cornish history from the dominant and somewhat eerie attraction of redundant Bodmin Jail to the elegant Pencarrow House.

Once you have tasted the delights of the cafés, restaurants and traditional pubs you may like a walk on the famous Camel Trail which will take you through Wadebridge and onto Padstow for a little paddle in the sea.
