This former mine captain's house tucked away on Bodmin Moor, to the east of Caradon Hill, is reached by moorland track. Now an upland hotel with 8 ensuite rooms, it claims to be the highest in Cornwall, affording panoramic views to both Cornish coasts and Dartmoor. It has a cosy small bar, popular with locals and visitors, with a separate dining area offering 'proper' home-cooked food, which is served from 12:00 until at least 20:00. Accommodation has expanded to include bell tents and hobbit houses, and a Gypsy caravan. Pork sausages, bacon and hog roast are sourced from the owners' farm.
