Map & Local Area

Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a remote, bleak heather covered upland granite moorland which is still grazed by moorland ponies and bisected by the main A30 road, St Breward lies on the North West edge and has a history of granite quarries and china clay, in fact granite from the De Lank Quarry was used in the construction of the Eddystone Lighthouse just off Plymouth 1882), Beachy Head Lighthouse (1900) and also of Tower Bridge (1890). The Moor was densely populated during Neolithic times and there are numerous stone formations including the Trippet ...

Stone, Stripple Stones Henge, the Jubilee Rock, King Arthurs Hall and Trethevy Quoit all worth a walk across the moor! The moody atmosphere led Daphne du Maurier to write her novel Jamaica Inn, after she got lost in fog while riding across the moor and was only saved when her horse led her back to the Inn. Jamaica Inn was the perfect base for smuggling operations during the 18th century due to its remote location, now the A30 dual carriageway goes past the front door.

Port Isaac has gained notoriety over the last 2 decades, in 2000 a low budget British comedy movie called Saving Grace was released about a pensioner selling marijuana to pay her debts and the local doctor was played by Martin Clunes, taking inspiration from this role Clunes then played the title character in Doc Martin, set in the fictitious Port Wenn and filmed on location in Port Isaac. The Fishermans Friends are also based in Port Isaac, there have now been 2 films based on their story and they have sung at Glastonbury Festival. The traditional village is still quaint and charming in equal measure.

Polzeath is a small village and is home to a fantastic beach and is one of the world’s most renowned surfing destinations. The beach is a magnificent stretch of golden sand situated between Pentire Head to the north and the mouth of the Camel Estuary. It was a favourite haunt of the late Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman, and is celebrated in some of his verse. The name of Tintagel immediately conjures images of King Arthur and the round table. The ruins of Tintagel Castle brood over the coast, but no one can say for sure whether this was the place where Uther Pendragon seduced the Queen of Cornwall. The remains of the 13th-century castle are much more recent than the times of the legend, although there are signs of much earlier settlements. Whatever the truth, it is worth a day trip to cross the new Tintagel Castle Bridge, visit the island and see the wonderful bronze sculpture "Gallos" (derived from the Cornish word for Power) which depicts the ling holding Excalibur. Tintagel Village was originally called Trevena ("village on a mountain"), with the (probably) French name Tintagel reserved for the castle. However, with the rise in popularity of the old Arthurian legends in the 19th century, the once-sleepy village became a Victorian tourism hotspot. It was renamed after its famous castle, and began its new life as a visitor destination.

Boscastle is a tiny port with a natural harbour, set in a narrow ravine, and boasts some very attractive thatches and white-washed cottages. Before the railways, Boscastle was a thriving port, serving much of North Cornwall. It has come to prominence recently as a result of the terrible floods in the summer of 2004. Following the footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the Lookout, one of the most wonderful vantage points from which to see the rugged coastline. Much of the land in and around Boscastle is owned by the National Trust
