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.

Richard is a very good, attentive host but only when you need him. The rest of the time he blends into the background, working on the farm. The Mill has been very tastefully restored with very good quality fixtures and fittings. Lovely comfy bed, which to me, with arthritis in my spine, is very important. Loved the log burner, lit it twice, took me back to my childhood. As someone else has said, the roads are a bit tricky in places, a lot of single track, twisty roads. Can thoroughly recommend the Mill and the owners.

The cottage is family friendly - we travelled with our 10 year old son and his friend. The property was very clean and in good condition and made very homely with furnishings and equipment. The property overlooks a field and was very quiet. It was a few minutes walk to the village centre and about 10 minutes to the ticket office for Tintagel Castle. We all had a lovely time at the castle and the cove - fantastic views. The King Arthur pub was great - we ate there a couple of times - very generous portions - the staff were all very friendly. We also enjoyed a day at St Michael's Mount - about 1.5hrs in the car. We would highly recommend the cottage to other holidaymakers. Thank you Pam for a lovely stay. Mr Ginger (the cat) also came to visit us!
