Bodmin Moor - southern England's wild country

Bodwin Moor is just one of several areas of outstanding natural beauty in Cornwall; a remote, granite moorland, which has been grazed by moorland ponies since time immemorial. Just north of the A30, visitors can explore the two highest peaks in Cornwall: Rough Tor, and the slightly taller Brown Willy. Over 100 Bronze Age clusters of huts have been excavated around Rough Tor, along with a medieval chapel and various other historic discoveries. If you're staying in or around Camelford, Bodmin Moor is certainly worth a wander.
