Shiny happy people…
We really are in the best location for exploring Cornwall, right on the edge of Bodmin Moor with both the rugged North coast and charming South Coast in easy reach. We’re about 20 minutes drive from the Eden Project and about 30 minutes from Plymouth. What’s more there is so much to do without getting in your car, not to mention plenty to keep you amused within our 20 acre site itself.
We are located between the villages of Rilla Mill and Upton Cross right on the Eastern Edge of Bodmin Moor. There is an excellent, walkable local pub in Rilla Mill which serves proper, home cooked food. It’s very popular with our guests. There is a well stocked village shop and Post Office in Upton Cross if you need to pop out for a last minute pint of milk or bottle of wine. Both villages have many activities and we provide details of local going on in our accommodation.
Upton Cross is home to the fabulous Sterts Theatre and there is a footpath from our front gate to the theatre itself. What a treat to be able to walk to the theatre in such a rural location!
There really is not better place for walking. We have a couple of short walks within our own grounds. You can walk through the woods to the viewing point and enjoy looking down on Rilla Mil. Or you can meander through the woods to our lake and riverside. There are many great local walks that you can enjoy without going anywhere near your car. We provide local walking information in all our holiday properties. Of course there is walking on Bodmin Moor itself which really is a treat with so much to explore with the Cheeswrings, Hurlers and engine houses all very nearby. Or explore the nearby Stara Woods which span the River Lynher in the parish.
