Catching up with some reviews from a weeks holiday to North Cornwall in October2020.
We stayed in a holiday cottage in Altarnun which is just on the very edge of Bodmin Moor.
Throughout our week we visited and walked to Rough Tor/The Hurlers/Minions & The Cheesewring. It made such a diverse change too from coastal & beach walks.
Fabulous areas to explore. So much to see & explore. Beware though some of the roads are a bit scary !!!!!

Are accommodation was situated on part of Bodmin Moor near St Neot. It was so peaceful with spectacular views across the Moor. Had to be careful when driving anywhere in the car due to cattle which didn't move and stood in the road, the wild horses and the sheep. Take a trip to the peaceful Colliford Lake it's lovely on a sunny day.
Just beware of the sat nav as you don't know what lanes it will take you down.

Was a little annoyed that on arrival there was no sign of Bobby Moore anywhere?! Just a load of cattle and endless heathland. And who wants that on a Moor?! Worst of all, it was free. I had expected to be parting with a wedge of my hard earned, but try as I might, could not find anyone to pay. Nor would any of the locals accept a charitable donation. One local told me that he hadn't seen Robert in town for at least two decades!!!
Needless to say, I shall not be returning.

Bodmin Morro is beautiful. wild , spectacular with view for many miles from the highest points. It's pretty boggy underfoot so wear suitable footwear. The ponies are everywhere. There are number of car parks from which you can walk and iwalkcornwall website suggests some suitable circular walks. T he one we did included Brown Willy the highest point on the Moor and in Cornwall

A two-star review for Bodmin Moor because....it's a moor!? The clue's in the name. Of course it's a bit wild with livestock etc. Complaining that it's too much of a moor is like complaining you didn't like the Atlantic Ocean because it's a bit wetter than you expected. Bodmin Moor was, well, windswept and bare with tufty heather, livestock and beautiful scenery. An excellent example of a moor.

Horses and bulls roam freely - not the best idea we had to walk the dog here!! It is extensively large and beautiful to look at with a gorgeous huge lake, but you could easily get lost. This is an adult place, children would not enjoy it.

I was always a bit apprehensive about wandering around the Moors for some reason, probably my mum's warnings of families getting lost in the mist - lol! But we parked up at the car park rached from Camelford down Roughtor road, and walked up showery tor, across to Rough Tor and the Logan stone, then across to Brown Willy to climb to Cornwall#s highest point.
Although the weather was changeable, it was mostly very sunny, and the views were spectacular.
When we were up Rough Tor, some people came and rounded up the ponies into what was no doubt the remains of an ancient enclosure used for keeping farm animals thousands of years ago.
We had a lovely time wandering about, and even came across a sheep kill with bite marks from teeth 2cm wide - a big cat kill? :p
We also saw the Charlotte Dymond memorial, some frogs, and had a lovely picnic in the shelter of some craggy stones on Brown Willy, before the rain came sweeping over.
On the southern end, you have more visible prehistoric monuments to see, like the Nine maidens, which is a stone circle you can walk around in and touch, a far cry from Stonehenge these days,
All in all well worth a visit, take a look at an OS map and decide which bits you want to see the most, and just enjoy the atmosphere and the wild, windswept landscapes.

This was like no other walk I have ever done. I had a hip replacement 8 weeks ago and managed this it was no problem soft underfoot and I climbed to the top of the rocks. The views are worth every second.

I adore Bodmin Moor, I live on the very edge, and about 50% of my journey's start by crossing some part of the Moor. The Moor is in constant change, new growth, new life, maturing nature, then decay to make way for next year's growth. Welcominging, happy playful and sunny. Sometimes spooky, gloomy, misty. Occasionally downright dangerous. In all it's moods, the Moors are stunningly beautiful, with a quiet majesty that somehow brings you back. Take time for a walk, slow down and just stroll, look at the plants the rocks the wildlife. I bet you end up loving the Moor as much as I do. I refuse to add a picture as it's face changes hourly. It's free, come and see for yourself, but please take care, shut gates, don't let dogs off leads and take any rubbish you find or bring with you to a bin.
