Bodmin Moor, with its many secret corners, and the more familiar Dartmoor are each within a short distance, along with the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, and other great gardens of Cornwall and many National Trust properties including Lanhydrock, Antony and Cotehele. We are also just a few minutes away from the UNESCO Cornish Mining World Heritage Site at Caradon Hill.
