Local Attractions

The parish of Altarnun oozes charm and character in equal measure, something the Parish Council and residents work hard to maintain. From its picturesque Pack Horse Bridge and Church Hall by the Church, a variety of traditional cottages to the Village Hall which houses the local shop and post office to the surrounding moorland.

The Parish boasts a thriving primary school and pre-school, likewise, a football club, numerous adult and youth organisations and ther sporting clubs.

Three excellent public houses welcome anyone and everyone, offering good food, accommodation and of course good local ale– Jamaica Inn, Rising Sun & The Kings Head. 

Road links are outstanding and the local bus services allow those without vehicles to travel to nearby Launceston and Bodmin and beyond.
