Emma Place is a semi-detached, Victorian house situated on a quiet lane, just off the centre of Bodmin, with its own peaceful garden providing the ideal family home from which to enjoy this amazing county. The house is steeped in history and was once the home of Emma Gifford, the wife of poet Thomas Hardy, who lived there from 1860 to 1868, which is why it’s called Emma Place.The town of Bodmin is located in central Cornwall and has many attractions, most of which are within walking distance, including museums, Bodmin Gaol and the Camel Trail which links the town with Wadebridge. If you are feeling energetic, make the most of the cycle path towards Padstow beach where you can enjoy one of the many restaurants. The romantic and dramatic Bodmin Moor, home to Jamaica Inn made famous by Daphne Du Maurier, is close by and offers a beautiful location for a leisurely walk. A must see is Golitha Falls, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lanhydrock House and Gardens is within a short drive of the property and is a beautiful Gothic country house. From the property you can often hear the sound of steam trains blowing their whistles from the local Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway, which runs down the valley to Bodmin Parkway station. Beach 10 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub 30 yards, restaurant 60 yards.
