Dozmary Pool is one of the sites that lay claim to be the home of the Lady of the Lake, where King Arthur rowed out to meet her and receive Excalibur, it is also thought to be where Sir Bedeveer returned Excalibur when King Arthur lay dying after the battle of Camlaan. Whatever the truth it is a stunning spot! King Arthurs influence stretches all the way to Tintagel where the castle could have been the legendary Camelot and the finding of 'Arthurs Stone' in 1998 has only fuelled these myths. - Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island.
North Cornwall is as famous for its rugged coastline as it is for its surfing. You can hire surf boards and equipment from Polzeath, up as far as Bude and Widemouth Bay. Boscastle is the only natural harbour for 20 miles and at low tides and certain weather conditions you can find a blowhole at the mouth of the harbour. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village.
The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell.
Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.
Guest from Truro stayed for 12 nights.
We needed a place to stay while we waited to exchange contracts on a bungalow we Bought, this was ideal for the 12 days we needed. The only fault we could find was the water pressure was low & the last day there was not hot water, we should have informed them but was busy, we found Fran & her husband very friendly.
Guest from Warrington stayed for 7 nights.
The location of the accommodation is great. Being fairly close to the A30 means that the rest of Cornwall is easy to access. The place was clean and we soon felt very settled. Almost everything is provided. We couldn't want for any more. The owners are really lovely people and made sure or stay was pleasant. I'd be more than happy to recommend this place to anyone visiting Cornwall. I'm sure we'll be looking to stay here again in the future.
Guest from Freshwater stayed for 14 nights.
Cornwall Cottages photo graph the holiday home as a cottage but do not state it is attached to the owners accommodation . The entrance is via two fields on a concrete field you have to open two gates and your car and yours shoes get covered in mud the worst is that they have dogs one in particular sat outside the holiday home and barked most of the day The cottages was nice and clean
Guest from Coalville stayed for 7 nights.
A clean spacious new build situated on a small farm, well placed for access to both the north and south coast. Avoid the roadwork's around Bodmin!
Guest from Worksop stayed for 7 nights.
I wanted a location that was central in Cornwall so we could fire off in different directions every day. Dozmary view was perfect for that. There was everything there we needed and the whole place was very quiet and cozy. The effort that has gone into it was amazing. The views were breathe taking.
Guest from Tunbridge Wells stayed for 3 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay here. It was so peaceful and quiet and right in the middle of nowhere which suited us. Fran and Brian (the owners) we're welcoming, kind and hospitable. The little bungalow was cosy and sweet and we wished we had stayed longer. Hopefully we will come back at some point.
Guest from Lincoln stayed for 6 nights.
Dozmary View is an excellent property. It is very clean and comfortable. Views across Bodmin Moor are stunning, with nearby Dozmary Pool to visit. Jamaica Inn is a short drive away, or 3 mile walk. It is very peaceful. The rest of Cornwall is easily accessible via the a30. The only recommendation I would make is be aware there are dogs next door, which is a working farm. They are working dogs and are there to protect the farm, so do bark when you walk past them. However, they are not a nuisance in any other way.

Location: Bodmin Moor
Occupying one end of a large converted threshing barn, this great one bedroom property is an ideal place for couples and those with very young families to escape and enjoy the peace and quiet of this rural location on the edge of Bodmin Moor. A brilliant place for walkers, yet within easy reach of both Cornish coasts. The wilds of Dartmoor are not too far away either! Really dog friendly, with an enclosed garden.
