Bodmin Moor is a wild, rugged and romantic place, steeped in history and legend. From Bronze Age stone circles and tombs to tin mines, from Poldark to Jamaica Inn we are lucky enough to have it all on our doorstep and it is our "go to" place to lift the spirits and recharge the batteries. It has so much more to offer besides the stunning views so we have put together a tour that will let you experience it.
This is not a walking tour but there are walking opportunities included. We have packed in so many different locations and experiences that we drive between them but you will have the time to walk in the landscape and feel the history - you can literally put your hands on ancient sacred stones that that have stood in place for 5,000 years!
The tour takes a full day and the itinerary includes:
Minions village - stone circles, Bronze age tombs, the Cheesewring, old tin mine engine houses
Trethevy Quoit - best example of a Cornish portal tomb or dolman
St Cleer Holy Well - ancient spring and a cure for insanity!
King Doniert's Stone - ancient memorial to a 9th century Cornish King
Golitha Falls - where the river Fowey cascades through beautiful woodland
Dozmary Pool - the only natural lake on the moor and legendary resting place of Excalibur
