Welcome to Te Chy Bed & Breakfast

Te Chy is a luxury bed and breakfast which occupies an amazing position, overlooking the idyllic
Bodmin moor, in a small historic mining village situated between Liskeard and Launceston.

Just a short walk away are mystical stone circles, with powerful Ley Lines the Hurlers, and legendary Cheesewring stones. The village is adorned with myths and legends and Tin Mines that are just asking to be explored as you walk, breathtaking scenes you have to see to believe.

Our accommodation is a spacious, detached, ground-floor property with a lounge, bedroom and en suite, and fridge. You can enjoy breakfast in the Tearoom, and we can provide a Salad or Light Snack in the evening as you watch the amazing sunsets, in the privacy of your own lounge.
Indulge, relax, enjoy!

Te Chy is situated at the highest Post Office, Shop & Tearooms in Cornwall. In a small historic mining village between Launceston and Liskeard.
We are on the edge of Bodmin moor, home to outstanding views, amazing walks and as many myths and legends as you could ask for.
Now adopted by The Minions as their preferred place to have a Cornish Cream Tea. A short walk away are the famous stone circles, the Hurlers, and the Cheesewring stones which in themselves tell some fantastic stories.
Minions is surrounded by beautiful moorland offering a wealth of archaeological interest from early Bronze Age to the Tin and Copper Mining which finished early in the last century (the last to close being the Prince of Wales Shaft, closing around 1914). Minions area is now designated "World Hertiage Status" also an area of "Outstanding Natural Beauty"
It is the perfect place for a relaxing break, or an adventure holiday with so much to see, do and explore.
You'll want to come back time and time again!
