Type: Bed & Breakfast
Redgate Smithy is a friendly and professionally run Bed and Breakfast in Cornwall, and is situated on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor, in the heart of South East Cornwall; perfectly situated either for exploring Cornwall, visiting friends or relatives, or for business. The beautiful yet mysterious Golitha Falls are just down the lane.
Golitha Falls are set in the deep wooded valley of the River Fowey, as it tumbles over steep rapids down from the moor. They are tranquil, yet mysterious; peaceful, yet beautiful and foreboding, all at once. A King of Cornwall died here. Miners have toiled here. It is a place where legend lingers.
Redgate Smithy itself was built around 200 years ago, and has attractive cottage style bedrooms, very comfortable beds, and a very extensive and tasty award winning breakfast menu, served in the light and airy conservatory.
Watch the birds over breakfast!
There are excellent pubs and restaurants in the local and surrounding areas that we recommend for your evening meals. We have a lovely woodland garden for guests’ use, with a patio and other seating areas - sit back and listen to the buzzards mewing as they soar overhead! We have a large conservatory which guests are also free to use at any time, and comfortable beamed, well equipped cottage style bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own Freeview Digital TV, Wi-fi access, and tea & coffee making facilities. Downstairs we have a laptop set up for guests’ use, for internet access and email.
Our local village is St.Cleer, near Liskeard, and we are very close to Siblyback Lake and to the World Heritage Site for Cornish Mining at Minions. Birds and wildlife abound on and around the moor, and there are excellent walking, riding, hacking, and fishing facilities locally.
Bodmin Moor is the hidden heart of Cornwall, and has a rich, rugged and beautiful landscape and heritage. Among the tors found near Minions, there is the famous Cheesewring, above the old granite quarry, and the varied rock formations of Sharp Tor and Kilmar Tor. There are also several ancient Neolithic settlements to be found here, including the hill-top strong-hold of Stowe’ Pound; several stone circles including the well-known Hurlers; and many other ancient sites and burial chambers such as Trethevy Quoit. The area abounds with nineteenth century industrial archaeology; including the extensive mining remains up on the moor, the Wheal Victoria Copper Mine down by Golitha Falls, and the remains of the fascinating Liskeard and Caradon Railway, which linked the heights of Bodmin Moor with Looe on the coast. The very pretty Looe Valley Line still runs from Liskeard to Looe.
Please note we open from 15 March to 21 October (The Ides of March to Trafalgar Day!)
We are easily accessible from both the A30 on Bodmin Moor, and the A38 from Liskeard. Children over 12 welcome. Friendly dog welcome. Off-road parking.
