Redgate Smithy is a quality B&B perfectly situated on the edge of Bodmin Moor, just above Golitha Falls, and in the heart of SE Cornwall; either for exploring Cornwall, visiting friends or relatives, or on business. Golitha Falls are tranquil, yet mysterious; peaceful, yet beautiful and foreboding, all at once. A King of Cornwall died here. Miners have toiled here. Legend lingers.
Built around 200 years ago, Redgate Smithy is now a friendly and professionally run Bed & Breakfast in Cornwall, with attractive rooms, 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!
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.
There are excellent pubs and restaurants in the local and surrounding areas that we recommend for your evening meals. Bed and Breakfast costs £35 per person per night, or for single occupancy, cost is £45 per night. There are three rooms available; the Double (ensuite), the 'Garden' Double (with its own private bathroom), and the Twin (ensuite). We accept Credit and Debit Cards.
We are easily accessible from both the A30 on Bodmin Moor, and the A38 from Liskeard. We have been awarded AA Four Stars for Guest Accommodation, and have also been awarded the AA Breakfast Award, and the SGA Secta Green Acorn Sustainable Tourism Award (see our website).
