Nearby to The Keep
With plenty to keep you occupied on the 80 acres of luscious woodland and the tranquil river you may be content staying close by. However if you do wish to venture slightly further afield there is plenty to do.
Bodmin is the nearest town to The Keep, only twenty minutes away. This Cornish village is not short on historical interest and is home to the Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway. If you fancy doing something rather unusual, then visitors to Bodmin can take a tour round the 18th century jail. With a spooky ambience in the imposing old business this should definitely be on your to do list. Take a walk on Bodmin Moor, a great place of wilderness in North Cornwall. Owners Merlin and Lizzie also love Lostwithiel and recommend sampling some of the delicious food at The Duchy Nursery as well as perusing in the antique shops.
For keen cyclists, the 18 mile Camel Trail that links Padstow, Waderbridge and Bodmin is great for long and largely flat rides. For the wave hunters out there, George’s Surf School in Polzeath is great for those wanting to learn to surf.
There are numerous eateries nearby to indulge in. One of which includes The St Tudy Inn, a charming Cornish pub serving up the finest seasonal produce from the surrounding area. Or head to Coombeshead Farm for a delicious meal, where the food is foraged, grown or reared on the farm. You can also buy homemade bread from the on site bakery.
