Full Details

The historic town of Bodmin is famous for the old jail, which in recent times has been redeveloped creating a luxury hotel. Once the County town and centre for the Law Courts in Cornwall, the town today is a bustling community well supported with a wide range of schooling, shopping, commercial, leisure and health facilities, including a hospital. It has always been a favoured location being central to the County midway between the north and south coasts and south of the iconic Bodmin Moor. This site is bounded on two sides by Council roads that connect with the A389 main road into Bodmin, the A30 and the A38. Bodmin Parkway railway station is approximately 2 ½ miles away and there is good access to major towns within the region, such as Liskeard 12 miles, Plymouth 30 miles, Launceston 22 miles, Exeter 63 miles and Truro 26 miles. Newquay airport is 19 miles away to the west whilst the old market town of Wadebridge and the Royal Cornwall Showground are just 9 miles away.

The Land
These two fields are located on the south eastern fringe of Bodmin, bounded along one side by Castle Canyke, an Iron Age hillfort and protected monument. The fields slope gently in a south-westerly direction and are enclosed by mature Cornish hedging. There is currently good access off Canyke Road, directly into the upper field.
