Explore the moors:
Cornwall’s best kept secret!

Bodmin Moor is one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets. It covers an area of 150 square miles and is a fantastic place for all ages and abilities to explore. It was once the heart of Cornwall’s tin mining industry and is steeped in history with ancient buildings, standing stones and medieval farms. It is also home to two of the highest peaks in Cornwall and the famous Copper Trail, a walking route which extends almost 60 miles around Bodmin Moor taking in the beautiful landscapes, lakes and ancient landmarks.

Here at Cornwall Services we have hand-picked a driving route which takes in the moors and some breathtaking scenery and includes some interesting places to visit on your way!
