Walking in Bodmin
The Bodmin area has a range of walking opportunities, some within the town and some in the surrounding countryside and moorland. For serious walkers, there’s the coast to coast trail, the Saints Way, that passes through the parish of Lanivet, which is just three miles from Bodmin or indeed the wild landscape of Bodmin Moor has hiking opportunities. The two highest points in Cornwall, Rough Tor and Brown Willy, offer some wonderful walks and some truly spectacular views.
If you fancy a walk that the whole family can enjoy, the Beacon Nature Reserve, just a short walk from Bodmin Town centre, is a good choice, with several paths that loop around the 144 foot high monument; or a wander along one of the many paths at the National Trust’s Lanhydrock Estate is a beautiful place for a family stroll plus you can finish up with a tasty cream tea in the café whilst the kids use the last of their energy in the fun play park.
