Self Catering in and around Liskeard and Bodmin Moor


A historic market town positioned between Bodmin Moor and the south coast; Liskeard flourished in the 19th century when copper was discovered on the nearby moors. These days it’s a quieter place but still has a buzz about it with a museum and arts and heritage centre.


A choice of rural accommodation

Being central to East Cornwall, Liskeard is a good base for exploring the whole area. The town’s Information Centre is a great place to start if you need inspiration and will have up to date details of what’s on in the area.

The coast is less than 10 miles to the south at Looe and Bodmin Moor five miles to the north.

  • Liskeard is eight miles inland, so it's easy to get to Looe (the nearest beach) by road or rail. There are also beaches at Seaton and along Whitsand Bay which are easy to access, and with the railway serving the town you can travel to places like Newquay and St Ives without using the car.

  • Liskeard has a nice selection of Independant shops, many in the pedestrian only Fore Street. It's still very much a hub for south-east Cornwall, so there's a mixture of useful shops and gift/craft shops, plus an award-winning book shop.

    On the outskirts of the town there are a couple of supermarkets and Trago Mills is less than five miles away.

  • Yes, and it's free!
