Nothing makes you enjoy a meal more than when you've earned it and that was true for our meal we had in a place called The Old Inn in St Breward on the Bodmin Moors. We've stayed at Coombe Mill for the past three years and every time we make sure that we visit this place as the food is yummy, the portions huge and the place very welcoming. It's claim to fame is the fact that it is the highest inn in Cornwall.
We try to make sure that we walk up to it which is about a 30minute walk up the public footpath. This is one of the most amazing walks you'll find. If walking from Coombe Mill you'll head through the deer field and over some walls. Along the way you'll be treated to some amazing views where you can really see for miles over to the west. The day we went was a little bit windy but the sky was blue and we stayed dry.
Making our way through the bracken and heading further up the hill to the summit which is 720 feet above sea level. Make sure you keep an eye open as on previous walks we've come face to face with roaming horses and you may also see some deer.
The walk was a real leg burner at about 1.3 miles through a muddy and rocky path you will certainly feel like you've earnt your food. The Old Inn was built-in the 11th century and has been reading as a public house since the 15th century. It's a very warm and welcoming place often with a beautiful open fire roaring away.
This is without doubt one of our favourite places to visit when we're in Cornwall.
