Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Liskeard

The historic town of Liskeard lies between the edge of Bodmin Moor and the little fishing villages and beaches along the South Cornwall Coast. 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 Charles II, who once stayed at the 17th-Century Stuart House in the centre of Liskeard. 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 experience, but still comfortably healthy, you can hire kayaks and windsurfers to spend time on Lake Siblyback.
