In the height of summer, when the crowds in other parts of Cornwall can rival central London at peak hour, Bodmin Moor always feels spacious, if not deserted.
You can’t talk about Bodmin without mentioning the stories which have originated here. Legend says that Dozmary Pool is where the Lady of the Lake presented King Arthur with his sword, Excalibur, and where it was returned once he died. Dozmary Pool is also reputed to be a place of eternal damnation for Jan Tregeagle, who made a pact with the Devil.
History buffs will appreciate that Bodmin is one of Cornwall’s oldest towns, mentioned in the Domesday Book but inhabited for thousands of years prior to that. It was the starting point for the Cornish Rebellion of 1497, and has an interesting jail and courthouse. The Grade I listed St Petroc church is impressive and Bodmin churchyard includes the 14th century ruins of The Chapel of St Thomas Becket and a holy well.
Bodmin is in almost in the centre of Cornwall. It is handy for western beaches around Padstow, and the east Cornish coastline around Looe and Polperro. If you want a self-catering Cornish holiday without fighting for space with other tourists, Bodmin is ideal.
