On the edge of Bodmin Moor in South East Cornwall lies the pretty town of Liskeard. Full of Cornish spirit and stunning buildings including many original Victorian shop fronts and interiors, Liskeard is a market and mining town dating back to the 13th century. It is surrounded by the fabulous scenery of Bodmin Moor, providing a perfect setting for long walks through the countryside with all the family – don’t forget the dog as many of Liskeard's holiday cottages are pet friendly. Follow in the footsteps of Charlies II who once stayed at the 17th-Century Stuart House in the centre of Liskeard, or for something a little more strenuous, spend a day at nearby Adrenalin Quarry, home to one of the largest zip wires in the UK and one of the highest rope swings. Less a white-knuckle, but still comfortably healthy, you can hire kayaks and windsurfers to spend time on the waters of Lake Siblyback.

After indulging yourself in exploring the Cornish countryside, whether on foot on by car, the larger historic cities of Truro and Plymouth are only a short drive away. They combine wonderful historic buildings and watersides with a wealth of shops and slightly more cosmopolitan restaurants and cafes on the streets. But at the end of the day you can rest assured that the sleepy town of Liskeard is waiting peacefully for you to return to spoil yourself in the peace and quiet. Liskeard is just a short drive to the south coast of Cornwall, within easy reach of some fine beaches and the fishing villages of Fowey, Mevagissey, Looe and Polperro. Other easily reachable attractions that will also appeal to the visitor include The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Helligan and Dozmary Pool where Ling Arthur's sword, Excalibur first emerge from the murkey depths.
