What is there to do?

Visiting North Cornwall

St Breward's history is broad and rich.  A village that developed around its mining of granite, it boasts a thriving village pub (The Old Inn & Restaurant), a Parish Church and a local village shop (St. Breward Stores and Post Office).


Bodmin Moor

St Breward is situated on the moor, so you are never far from a moorland walk.  However Palmer's Farm is located just at the edge of the moor so it is just a few minutes walk to the cattle grid to take a leisurely walk towards Candra, with Alex Tor and Brown Willy within your sights.  Perfect for walkers, ramblers, cyclists or a nice drive, Bodmin Moor can offer something for everyone come rain or shine.  Teeming with grazing animals, it is perfect for an escape from your hectic lifestyle.
