Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. 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 a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. 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 Domesday Book.
To the east lies the Tamar Valley which is a stunning, quiet, picturesque region with some beautiful villages including Calstock with its impressive Viaduct dominating the village, Calstock Quay was originally used for transportation of tin as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides, although the construction of the Tamar Valley Railway in the early 20th century led to most cargo being transported by rail. Further up stream is Morwellham Quay with its fantastic open air museum, Morwellham Quay has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO, the cultural arm of the UN, and is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. Tavistock is just over the border in Devon, an ancient stannary and market town on the edge of Dartmoor, it has a wealth of fine pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions including ruins of a Benedictine Abbey which was founded in 961. Plymouth has the National Marine Aquarium and host the National Firework Competition on the Hoe over two nights in August.
The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it’s a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. Closer to home, the Parish of North Hill and Bodmin Moor area feature in several of E V Thompson's novels. Local amenities:- Sterts open air theatre with varied programs through the summer, Trethorne Leisure Farm, Launceston indoor skate, scooter and BMX park with cafe and soft play area. Jamaica Inn 7 miles, Tintagel 20 miles, Tavistock 16 miles, Looe 18 miles making the north and south coasts equidistant at approx. 20 miles.
Guest from Grimsby stayed for 14 nights.
Had a fabulous holiday. The barn was of a very high standard, well equipped and had plenty of space. It felt like home from home, there were plenty of things for everyone (pool table, hot tub, swings, board games) and a small library of book swaps. With two master bedrooms with ensuite it was perfect for two families. The owners were very welcoming, baking rock buns for our arrival, and also very accommodating in storing our bikes. The location was convenient for both Cornwall and Devon and there was certainly plenty to see and do. We would definitely stay again.

Fantastic accommodation in a lovely part of Cornwall. Definitely recommend a stay here. The hot tub was very inviting after walks on the moors and days at the beach.
Guest from Yeovil stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely location to look out onto the moor. Really spacious upstairs. Snug with 2nd TV a good benefit. Hot tub was really excellent! (Difficult to get the cover off the hot tub but that does mean it's not going to blow away!) Stove was really hot - don't open the door on the stove whilst it's flaming, you will be too hot.

We had a wonderful week. The barn itself is luxurious, warm, cosy and has every amenity needed. The owners Lynda and Phillip were very friendly and helpful and we arrived to some delightful home made cakes. We made use of the hot tub and the bath robes were an amazing bonus. The location was perfect as it was not too far to drive to the the south or west coast. We would definitely return. Thanks!

Guest from Tidworth stayed for 7 nights.
We stayed in late October for my wife's birthday. The cottage was an excellent choice with all the amenities we needed for our stay. The weather wasn't great for the first few days and we where forced to stay in, but we never felt bored or cramped as there were plenty of things to do and lots of room in the cottage ( there was 6 of us staying and a dog). The owners where also very helpful and made our stay very special.I would recommend this cottage to anyone and i will be revisiting next year. Thank you for a lovely stay

Guest from Cambridge stayed for 7 nights.
Fabulous place to stay - loved everything about it! Lanxton Barn met all our expectations and more! Perfectly suited for a large family group it was a hit with everyone from the moment we arrived. Lovely big bedrooms, comfortable beds, everything very tastefully furnished and plenty of bathrooms. The upstairs was amazing! A fantastic, spacious area with cosy sofas, a well-equipped kitchen containing everything you could possibly need, big family tables inside and out for meals and the children loved the additional TV room which they claimed as their den. Peaceful evenings in the hot tub were a favourite end to wonderful days out exploring. Linda and Philip made us very welcome and were on hand to help if needed. Really enjoyed some interesting chats. We loved staying at Lanxton Barn and would highly recommend it. Didnt want to leave!
