Bodmin Moor on your doorstep offers an abundance of good walks - with woodland trails and cycle routes for all ages at nearby Lanhydrock House and Cardinham Woods. Siblyback lake, a 20 minute drive offers watersports, walks and a cafe for a well deserved cuppa. Equidistant from the coasts, Fowey is the nearest coastal location, with Looe and Polperro a short drive away. Padstow and Port Isaac are a 40 minute drive - famous thanks to Doc Martin!

The mining heritage sites of Minions and Caradon Mines are an easy 15 minute drive away. The Hurlers, Sharp Tor and the Cheesewring are all great walks - so don't forget your walking boots. Bodmin Moor's famous largest Tor (Brown Willy) overlooks the famous smugglers inn, Jamaica Inn. The scenery from the top of the tors is stunning and well worth a visit on a sunny day.

St Neot village is a five minute drive from Bandylegs (or a 2 mile walk). It offers a local shop, a beautiful church, childrens park, gardens and a fantastic old pub, the London Inn, which serves great food. Carnglaze Caverns are a short walk from St Neot.

Bodmin is 10 minutes away by car and offers supermarkets, restaurants and leisure facilities. Lanhydrock golf club, Bodmin Jail, the Camel Trail and Bodmin Steam Railway are all situated in or around Bodmin town.


Bandylegs was built in around 1780. The cottage stands on the old coach road between Bodmin and London. The whole cottage has been renovated recently. There is a woodland theme running through the cottage. It is bright and airy, but maintains the feel of a cosy Cornish cottage.

And you may ask.......Why Bandylegs?!

The cottage is named after an old cat of ours - who at the end of her very long life had extremely bandy legs. Her real name was Pixie - sadly departed but dearly missed.
