Landscape near our boutique hotel Cornwall being protected by new project

A new research project had been launched which will look at the importance of the Cornish landscape, and how it can be protected for the enjoyment of future generations.

The study is being run by Plymouth University in partnership with the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and consultants Fyfe Associates. The project aims to examine how people use the varying landscapes, and how it affects their health and wellbeing.

The project will then release their findings to the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which will aid in the protection, management and improvements of Cornish landscapes in the future.

Cornwall is home to some iconic landscapes and scenery, and is worth millions of pounds to the economy. More than a quarter of these are located within the Cornwall AONB, which is why it is important to look after these areas as best we can.

A number of geocaches are located across the region, including in areas around Liskeard and Bodmin, which are located only a short distance from our boutique hotel. Cornwall is a place where people come to relax and enjoy, so these geocaches contain cameras, sound sticks and questionnaires, where people can leave behind their opinions and perspectives of the landscape around them.

People are also being invited to download the free Rate My View app on their smartphones, where they can take pictures of landscapes which are important to them. This will help to give a wider view of which areas are important to both people and visitors alike.
