More 2 see on the Moors

Much more to see and do on the moors!

Moor2Sea Cottages are geographically blessed, located between the sea and two wide expanses of moorland. Bodmin moor is close by and still wild and wonderful to explore. Dartmoor has SO many outdoor activities on offer; walking, cycling, horse riding, canoeing, climbing, letterboxing & geocaching. Let 2018 be the year you get out and explore this natural environment – then return to comfort of your holiday cottage and relax…

2. Eden – Biomes, SkyWire, Canopy Walkway, Soft pla & amazing plants! (only 35 mins from M2S)
