Things to do

-Outdoor activities: There are notable circular walks that incorporate Blisland. The most accessible starts at the Blisland Inn and takes visitors through the Lavethan Woods and several farms before circling back to Blisland. A more strenuous trail starts in Blisland then navigates its way to Pendrift Downs over the course of approximately five miles. Many trails around the area are also suitable for cycling and horse riding.

-Golf: St.Kew Golf Course is located a few miles from Blisland holiday homes and offers a highly rated short course with beautiful greens and fairways. The course is ideally suited for an afternoon out and welcomes visitors throughout the year. A little further afield, keen golfers will find excellent courses at Lanhydrock Golf Club in Bodmin, St. Enodoc Golf Club in Wadebridge, and Carlyon Bay Golf Club in St. Austell.

-Food and drink: Visitors staying in Blisland holiday accommodation flock to the village’s CAMRA award-winning pub. The Blisland Inn is a family owned and operated pub featuring six real ales, homemade food, and a cosy atmosphere. The house specials are the chicken and ham pie and vegetable soup. Patrons of the pub have their choice between a number of locally brewed ales dispensed from hand pumps.

-Family attractions: Bodmin, which is fewer than four miles from Blisland, is home to several notable family friendly attractions. Dragon Leisure Centre has an excellent water park with an indoor heated pool. Also popular with kids is the Bodmin & Wenford Railway, which still operates steam locomotives and takes visitors through the picturesque Cornish countryside.

We found Par an excellent point to explore the south and west coast's and very convenient for the Eden Project.

It has everything you need for a comfortable stay in Charlestown. It has character and in a perfect location. Walking distance to various eateries & hostelries! ..& of course so close to the wonderful harbour. This year we were lucky to even see a little of Poldark filming. We had trips out to Mevagissey, Truro & St Austell & a shopping trip to the Cornicopia Cornish indoor market. We met the owner Amanda who was lovely and welcoming. Can't wait to return!
