East Cornwall

Hugging the edge of the Devon border, the stark, barren expanse of Bodmin Moor dominates East Cornwall and is the county’s wildest and weirdest landscape. Pockmarked by bogs and treeless heaths, Cornwall’s ‘roof’ is well worth taking the time to explore: lofty peaks loom on the horizon, stone circles are scattered across the hills, and ancient churches nestle at the foot of granite tors.
