Cornwall has some lovely ancient market towns and choosing cottages with hot tubs in Liskeard will mean you are close to Plymouth, Bodmin and the Devon border. It’s a great base to explore the area and it’s location at the head of the Looe Valley gives you easy access to the gorgeous Cornish coast and the natural unspoilt beauty of Bodmin Moor.
The town itself has kept much of its Victorian charm with many of the buildings and shops still having original features. Stroll round the pretty streets with a great choice of shops as well as cafes and pubs to enjoy the local food and drink and the weekly livestock market should not be missed. To find out more about the area visit the Liskeard and District Museum and the town church, St Martin’s, is one of the largest in the county dating back to the 15th century.
Rail enthusiasts can enjoy a trip on the Looe Valley Line, nearly 9 miles following the East Looe River with wooded valleys, wildlife and glorious estuary views. The Golitha Falls are well worth a visit, a series of spectacular cascades and waterfalls along the River Fowey as it flows through ancient woodland. If you like stone circles, and who doesn’t, The Hurles, four miles north of Liskeard, is a unique group of three circles and a short drive away is the extraordinary monument Trethevy Quoit, a Neolithic burial chamber.
This is a great base for walkers and only the second town in Cornwall to gain ‘Walkers are Welcome’ status. The town has a heritage trail and a lovely selection of circular walks and with a network of paths across open moorland to explore on Bodmin Moor you will be spoilt for choice. There’s a great choice of cycling routes along quiet lanes and off road tracks that whisk you away into unspoilt countryside.
