About the neighbourhood
Demelza is an idyllic rural hamlet enjoying tranquility and beautiful countryside. It is situated between the towns of Wadebridge, Bodmin and St Austell and is well known for its local bridleways and footpaths through beautiful farmland and woodland, criss-crossed with streams that eventually form part of the river Camel. To the south is the popular Eden Project with its diverse bio domes, ice skating rink in the winter and year round music concerts. To the north are wonderful surfing beaches and the Camel Estuary whose waters are ideal for swimming, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing.

You will need a car as there is no public transport from Demelza. Although the apartment seems to be off the beaten track, the A30 and A39 are easily accessible and quickly gets you to other areas of Cornwall.
