There is an excellent, fully equipped, wood and granite kitchen
for your use (except B&B). This has everything you need for
preparing gourmet or quick and simple meals. Including fridge, microwave
oven, large oven, dishwasher, deep fat fryer, crockery, cutlery,
glassware, and tea towels. We will also come and cook for you (pre-arranged)
and for schools the young people can assist in this process.
This is the perfect base for your
walking, cycling or active holiday. With extensive tracts
of moorland, heathland and woodland nearby you'll not be short of
a new and invigorating experience each day.
The Cornish Way is part of the national
cycling network which is a visionary project to create 9,000 miles
of routes for cyclists and walkers by 2005.
Tor View is alongside network route number 3 - The Coast and Clay
trail, which is a 45 mile (71.5 kilometres) section of the network
which presently starts in Bodmin and ends in Truro - an unspoilt
walking haven through woodland, along a former tramway and beside
the water leats.
The Camel Trail is ideal for
wheelchair users and fantastic for off-road cycling and walking.
Tor View lies on the Saints Way and
is perfect for exploring the network of rights-of-way and bridleways
in and around the area.
There are traffic free cycle routes:
the Camel Trail (mentioned) Pentewan Valley Trail (alongside the
White River through woodland and wetland) and the beautiful valley
and woodland at Cardinham Woods. There are plenty of places where
you can hire bikes or bring your own. Tor View has lockable storage
Bodmin Moor is Europe's least-eroded
moor and contains Cornwall's two highest points, “Brown Willy”
and “Rough Tor” - and of course, is home to the famous
“Dartmoor Ponies” and an abundance of wildlife.
The Eden project is only 10 minutes
by back roads helping to miss all the traffic and priority at the
entrance! The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a short drive away as
are wonderful beaches and coastal villages.
With so much to see and do, and with
such a variety of activities and facilities for the active visitor,
Cornwall is the place to be!
