We live on the eastern edge of Bodmin Moor in an old tin mining village called Pensilva. It is one of the highest parts of Cornwall (350 mtrs above see level), rugged but beautiful and oftens sees some snow in the winter. The views are startling to the north and south coastline. However it can be windy!
