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. Families staying in Blisland holiday cottages are also within reach of the world-famous Eden Project.

Owners are very freindy and helpful and even left us bottle wine on arrival. Very good location with plenty things to do nearby, would recommend staying in this cottage worth every penny! Hope 2 stay there again.

We did have trouble with the log burner but only because there were no instructions but Alan explained how to work it. Would definitely stay there again.
