The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Caradon Inn (2 ½ miles)

A peaceful, traditional inn opposite Sterts open-air amphitheatre on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Children are catered for.

Nearest beach

Bodigga Beach (9 ¼ miles)

Use the car park at Millendreath and walk in an easterly direction, the beach is below the cliffs. Watch out for the tide as a rock scramble may be necessary. There are areas of sand with some shingle. Good for swimming and snorkelling but no facilities.

Nearest walk

The Hurlers and The Cheesewring (1 ¼ miles)

Take the opportunity of staying in this area to explore Bodmin Moor - a bleak wilderness quite unlike the traditional expectation of landscape in the West Country. The moor has many stone circles and standing stones, of which The Hurlers and The Cheesewring are two of the best known. From Minions, the highest village in Cornwall, just outside Liskeard, it is just a short distance to The Hurlers, three Bronze Age stone circles dating back to around 1500 BC. From here it is about a mile across the moor to The Cheesewring. So called because of its shape, The Cheesewring is a towering stack of a rock formation created by glaciation and weathering over thousands of years. A climb to the top provides breathtaking views into Devon in one direction and far into Cornwall in the other. As a reward, treat yourself to a cream tea back at The Hurlers Halt in Minions, known as the highest cafe in Cornwall.

A WOW of a walk!

This is a real WOW of a walk! The views are amazing and although it is partly industrial landscape it is still stunning. It is an easy walk round The Hurlers up to The Cheesewring although a bit rocky and steep close to The Cheesewring but still manageable. The nearby village of Minions is quaint and boasts a pub, shop and tearoom.

Outstanding Views

The walking countryside here is outstanding on a clear day - you can see for miles and miles. The Cheesewring stack itself is a fairly easy climb that is well worth it just to stand on top and admire the countryside mapped out below you.

The Cheesewring looks like it has been stacked up by a passing Giant. Great for picnics, with panoramic views on a good day.

Magical

There is something magic about the wide open expanse of Bodmin Moor. Climbing up to the top of the Cheesewring, seeing the moors laid out below you, with views stretching into Devon and Cornwall provides a great sense of space, and certainly blows the cob webs away.

Beautiful views.

As well as spectacular views on a clear day the Hurlers cast a magical spell on those visiting them. The Cheesewring is well worth the walk and again a spectacular structure of granite.

Nearest town

St Cleer (¾ mile)

High on Bodmin Moor, St Cleer is set amid some of Cornwall’s most dramatic countryside. Step onto the moor itself and the views in every direction, across bracken and gorse clad hills with the ruins of old mining wheal houses dotted about, are glorious. Walking here you’ll share the landscape with wild ponies and a teeming population of moorland birds but it is the overwhelming sense of peace that brings ramblers back again and again.

A beautiful sunny day by the sunny

We enjoyed a lovely trip by train to Looe (3 adults and 2 children cost in total approx. £10 return). It's about a 10 minute walk from the station to the town but there is lots of lovely shops, quaint narrow streets and activities for children. We went on a trip out to see on a glass bottom boat, but didn't see anything below the water! Crabbing is very popular and a simple kit cost £3 and kept the children entertained for quite a while. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Courtyard Bistro. A quick visit to the beach and an ice cream back to the train completed a great day out.

Very scenic journey

A very pretty little branch line that drops dramatically down through the wooded valley. There is always plenty of bird life and wading fowl on the water as you go by, and the walk into Looe from the station is short and level. Highly recommended, lots of pubs and restaurants in Looe make it a nice winter's day trip, with a pub lunch by a real fire an added bonus! You can get off at some of the little stops on the way and do circular walks from those stations.

Golitha Falls (2 miles)

A moderate riverside walk to the falls but to fully experience the breathtaking cascade a visit after rainfall is a must!

Walk through woodland to Golitha falls

There is a free car park (always helpful), with a toilet block (although it was locked up when we went). The walk through the woods along the river is stunning. It was a sunny day when we visited, so the light coming through the green leaves was amazing. Some paths are good, others are more tricky because of exposed tree roots. But the walk is so well worth just taking your time. The falls themselves are tiny, 3 little tumbles. But the darkness due to the foliage made it an ideal spot to experiment with my photography and capture a 'smooth water' image of the falls. So remember to bring your dSLR and tripod!

Golitha Falls near Siblyback Reservoir. Well worth a visit to this FREE attraction. However, as you venture towards the Falls the paths are rather tricky to follow as they are not very well marked. Breathtaking in more ways than one! If you have the agility of a mountain goat then you will be fine. The Falls are magnificent and worth the struggle to see them in all their majesty and wildness.

The Eden Project (16 miles)

It hardly needs any introduction…This global garden with its iconic Biomes is home to millions of plants and flowers reflecting the diversity of our planet. Marvel at the largest greenhouse in the world, see internationally-acclaimed architecture and art inspired by nature, or go to a gig at the renowned Eden Sessions. Children can learn about humans' complex relationship with nature in The Core interactive education centre or go free-range and explore trails, hideaways and sandpits. A wide range of cafes and restaurants provide delicious, responsibly-resourced refuelling stops and the shop is crammed full of interesting gift and souvenir ideas. An organic project that just keeps on growing, a visit to The Eden Project is an awe-inspiring experience. You can also have a go on the new zip wire, reported to be the longest in England - go on, you know you want to!!

Great for families

We've been several times and always had fun. You can get annual tickets when you gift aid your entry which is very worthwhile as it isn't cheap. Went twice over Easter week once going in as it opened and enjoying the biomes in the pouring rain! Core building also great for kids and not as busy as biomes. We went again later in the day another day and discovered that you can have an evening meal in the Mediterranean biome midweek from Easter to October which was a lovely treat and then they give you a lift back up the hill afterwards! Staying til it closes gives you a quieter time too!

A fun day at Eden

Myself and my two children (aged 4 and 7) visited Eden Project during the school holidays. We had a great day out which was enjoyed by all. The Biomes were busy at times but there was plenty of little hideaway places outside to get away from the crowd and recharge the batteries. We took our own picnic so don't know about pricing / food of the onsite eateries but I can say that the ice creams were lovely and in my opinion great value at £2 each.

September 2012

We went on a rainy day in the summer hols and understandably everyone else had the same idea so it was packed. It was nice to see the iconic biomes and interesting to look round but we thought it was very expensive for what it was - £60 for 4 of us plus we ate there so an extra £40 for that. We also seemed to spend a lot of time queuing for food, to look round the biomes, for the park and ride etc . We would go back but perhaps out of season to have chance to explore fully. We'd also look round for cheaper tickets!!

Have wanted to visit here for many years. It was quite interesting, the Biomes were amazing to look at from the outside. We bought tickets from the tourist information centre before we visited which they sell at discounted prices and also went after 3.30pm when entrance is less. The cakes in the cafe were all a bit stale, at nearly £40 for a piece of cake and a drink for 7 of us we thought they would be lovely and were not so good. Maybe it was a bad day for cake. Glad to have visited, would probably only go once.

good value with stores vouchers....

Visited for the first time 10 years ago, and of course in 10 years it HAS changed...more grown up, but we remarked to each other many times that it didn't feel as "magical" as the first time we wound our way down to the domes. The large 'flags' have gone that marked the way down the paths.....perhaps that was it? entrance was £23 each for adults & £9.50 each for kids....So to be honest we really wouldn't have visited had it not been for a certain store voucher scheme that meant we payed £5 each and the kids £2.50 each ...so we did treat ourselves to lunch..£5 for most mains with salad or new potatoes....YUMMY, filling & VERY good value, with free pitchers of water on the tables and help yourself mugs hang above - all very handy. Plenty to see and do although our kids sped around the place and ended up where they REALLY wanted to be..in the shop. A great day out though , as they slept like logs on the way home!

What a wonderful way to spend a day. The weather was perfect for us, but that didn't matter as it would be okay on a poor day at Eden. It was early in the year when we visited but still plenty to see and do.
Had lunch there and it was very good value for money.
We will be back!

We felt that £20 per adult was a lot to pay, yes there was plenty to see; however, on a wet, cold, windy day walking the outside paths was not great.The two domes well worth seeing, but again not worth £40. We came away saying to each other that we felt the Eden Project to be a great Educational Centre for children, schools and colleges to visit, there were other gardens we visited in Cornwall we felt much better value.

Eden Sessions

There aren't may concert venues where there are no queues for the loo or the bar! A great venue with staff who actually smile - and if you don't like the band you can always wander around a biome (or two).

Amazing

The Eden Project really is somewhere very special. Leave loads of time to look around and I would recommend staying for the evening as this is when the place really comes alive. The lighting and scenery in the evening has to been seen to be believed, it’s so beautiful.

A great day out with loads to do for all ages. In winter, skating on the ice rink is great fun and the hot, tropical Biome is a great antedote for the winter blues. There's lots of delicious food to choose from in the cafes and restaurants too.

Fabulous day out

The biomes are amazing, and the educational centre is interesting too. Watch the film on the making of Eden. It's a good couple of hours long but worth it. With ice skating and gigs playing at this exciting venue too it makes a good day out for all the family.

Eden Sessions and Biomes

My trip to The Eden Project was amazing. I visited in the summer to see a band and included in the ticket was access to the rest of the grounds; we went early and took a trip around the Biomes before the gig started. The sound quality from the open-air gig was fantastic, I would definitely recommend going if you get the chance (but remember tickets sell out fast!).

Plants and gigs!

A visit to the Eden Project is a must. The biomes which house the plants from all over the world are amazing! And if you get chance to see a gig then it will be an experience you will not forget - tickets are often sold out!

Open air theatre.

Take a cushion and a warm coat. Some of the productions are excellent, particularly the local musical (a different one each year). There is a good little restaurant or bring your own picnic to eat in the grounds beforehand.

Odd to find this covered outdoor theatre on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Mostlly amateur productions, but the musicals can be of a very high standard. Take a cushion and a warm coat.
