The Surroundings
Blisland is one of the most sought after villages in the county. At its heart is the village green which is possibly the largest in Cornwall. Overlooking the green is the Blisland Inn which is a former CAMRA pub of the year and the parish church of St Protus and St Hyacinth (originally Norman) about which Sir John Betjeman said “As a restoration – even improvement – of a medieval church, this can hardly be bettered”, There is also a shop and post office which offers a super range of provisions as well as the internet cafe. A number of substantial granite houses and pretty cottages overlook the green.There is a village website www.blisland.com.
The expansive areas of Bodmin Moor are a short distance above the village, and in contrast below the village to the west is the beautiful Camel Valley with the trail which will take you along the former line of the steam railway to Padstow (bikes are available to hire in Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow). The Forestry Commission have extensive woodland at Cardinham where there are both marked paths, play areas and mountain bike course as well as a very good cafe.
