Located in the heart of the Duchy of Cornwall is the pleasant traditional English village of Herodsfoot. If your idea of a great holiday is one that offers peace and quiet, then a Herodsfoot holiday rental house is the perfect option for you. A Herodsfoot holiday offers a small range of activities, particularly wonderful for those who love being in the Great Outdoors.
The emphasis of a Herodsfoot holiday is rest and relaxation and so there is a limited number of activities to be found here. Having a Herodsfoot holiday rental house is a brilliant base for lots of walking and cycling trails in the immediate area, in particular Deer Park and Pendruffle Woods. For those who love nature, cycling, hiking, photography or painting, a Herodsfoot holiday is the perfect getaway. Other activities available in the immediate area of the small village include golf, tennis, sailing, swimming, fishing, horse riding and paragliding.
If you have had enough relaxation in your Herodsfoot holiday rental house, then it is time to venture outside for some fresh air. One of the best places to go is Bodmin Moor, which is approximately 20 minutes north of Herodsfoot. This craggy, granite moorland is a very popular place with walkers and is steeped in history and legend. As well as the highest peak on the moor to explore, Brown Willy, visitors will find the Dozmary Pool. This lake is believed by many to have been the site where Excalibur was thrown to The Lady of The Lake by Sir Bedevire, as well as the place where Tregeagle had to spend eternity scooping water from the lake with the shell of a limpet. Bodmin Moor is a great place for a bit of fresh air, a relaxing stroll and some spectacular views.
