A little bit more about the location of Bodmin

Bodmin, with all its amenities, is just a few minutes’ drive away, having recently undergone a huge transformation into a cycle hub and offering many shopping, banking, schooling and recreational facilities. Perfectly located to access the many renowned sandy beaches and historic coastal towns such as Padstow, Fowey, Charlestown and Port Isaac with the Camel Trail passing through the town and following the route of the old railway into Wadebridge and beyond to Padstow.
