WHILE ON THE MOORS -- STILL A BRILLIANT PLACE TO STAY
BECKY KEPT IN TOUCH WITH US IN THE LEAD UP TO OUR STAY. SHE MADE US FEEL REALLY WELCOME ON ARRIVAL AND HAD SCONES AND CREAM / JAM WAITING FOR US. THE COTTAGE IS SLIGHTLY OUT OF THE WAY ( ON THE MOORS ) BUT WELL WORTH STAYING HERE. THE COTTAGE IS CLEAN AND LOVELY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay in Mowhay Cottage at East Rose. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope you enjoy the rest of your trip, and hope to see you again in the future.
Bodmin Moor is a unique upland where more than 10,000 acres of unspoilt open moor has provided unfettered grazing for ponies, sheep and cattle for more than 6000 years. The sense of freedom that comes from being amongst this remote and most beautiful of areas adds to the richness of the holiday experience and makes a startling contrast with the nearby North Cornish Coast. Tranquil, remote and romantic, the ancient moor is a timeless place where it is easy to find peace away from the modern world. Climb the summit of Brown Willy and you have literally left the 21st Century behind. The rugged boulder-strewn tors have changed little over the centuries. The sense of freedom and the fascination with the wildlife, particularly to those who lead busy city lives, is immediately striking. The closest village to East Rose is St Breward. Located right on the edge of Bodmin Moor, it provides the perfect retreat for families with many great places for a picnic, and endless amounts of freedom for children and dogs! In complete contrast to the moor, yet so readily accessible, the superb North Cornish Coast offers everything you would expect from one of the most spectacular coastlines in the country; rugged cliffs, intimate sandy coves, sheltered harbours, fishing villages and beautiful open beaches. Tintagel, Port Isaac, Boscastle and Padstow are all within a gentle thirty minute drive from East Rose. To many, it is Tintagel, just seven miles from East Rose as the crow flies, that conjures up the spirit of North Cornwall; the spectacular Castle combined with the magical Arthurian Legend set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. To walk along some of the open, white, sandy beaches such as Rock, Daymer Bay, Harlyn Bay and Polzeath or to spend an afternoon in the intimacy of Bossiney or Lundy Coves is a holiday experience that will always linger in the memory.
