About the neighbourhood
East Rose is perfectly located to explore the wonders of Bodmin Moor - on foot or cycle, or to explore all that Cornwall has to offer. We are only a 10 minute drive to the main A30 that runs through Cornwall. One of the closest towns to East Rose is Wadebridge. You will find several restaurants and pubs, and quaint shops.
Local attraction include The Camel Trail - an off road cycle route running from Wenford Bridge (10 minute drive from East Rose) to Padstow, following the Camel Estuary, Camel Valley Vineyard, The Eden Project, Lanhydrock House, as well as the towns and villages of Padstow, Port Isaac, Rock, Newquay and Polzeath. Within 1.5 hours of East Rose, you can drive to Lands End, the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall.
Getting around
East Rose is located in a rural setting on Bodmin Moor. A car is essential to get around to see the sights. St Breward is the closest village, a leisurely 35 minute walk.
The closest train station is Bodmin Parkway (located out of Bodmin town itself), and cars can be hired from Bodmin town. You can arrange for a taxi to collect you from the station to take to you the town centre.
If you are feeling energetic, you can bring your bike and cycle around the moors (on the roads). This will be a great way to see the sights and nature of the moors at close hand. The Camel Trail (cycle route from Wenford Bridge to Padstow) is also only a few miles from East Rose, and definitely worth a visit.

Although in a very rural moorland location, all of Cornwall is very accessible from East Rose as we are only a short drive from the main A30 road that runs through the county. A car would be recommended for a holiday at East Rose. East Rose is located on Bodmin Moor above the ancient Delphy Bridge between the villages of Blisland and St Breward. It is a leisurely ½ hour drive to Padstow, the North or South Coasts and the Eden Project.

Please find below, directions to East Rose whilst the A30 road works are under way (Spring 2015 - Spring 2017).

March 2016 update: **Due to the road works, the Temple turn on the A30 which leads to St Breward is currently shut**
