In addition to stocking all the basics they have an enormous range of specialty foods, gluten free, exotic spices, ciders, home bakery, weigh your own, local game, handcrafts and home baking. Penny's' Pies are famous, my own favourite is the steak and stilton.


The Market Inn- beautifully preserved old inn opposite St Cleer Church. A truly local pub which has escaped commercialisation. Very dog friendly and a superb beer garden.

Trago Mills is Cornwall's famous discount outlet. The old water mill is situated underneath a viaduct in extensive landscaped gardens populated with every kind of fowl from Rhode Island Reds to shrieking peacocks. Lurking in the foliage you'll find spooky statues of infamous Eurocrats, The Inland Revenue and other vile specimens.

Carnglaze Caverns is an old slate mine which is now a museum. The caverns were used during the war to house the Navy's rum store. Live music events are held in the auditorium and Rick Wakeman is a regular performer. The caverns are also popular as a wedding venue and there is a beautiful underground lake. There's also an extensive woodland walk which is quite spectacular in May when the bluebells bloom.

There are two very good museums in Liskeard.

Stuart House is famous for having accommodated Charles 1 during the civil war and has an excellent exhibition of the civil war, a coffee shop and a sewing shop which also stocks vintage lace and linen at very affordable prices. Outside there is a beautiful walled garden where you can sit and enjoy afternoon tea if the weather is kind.

Liskeard Museum has a wealth of material about the industrial heritage of the region and a museum of childhood. There is also a reading room which holds extensive documents relating to local history.

Admission is free to both museums and the staff are very friendly and willing to share their knowledge with visitors.

Liskeard Cattle Market still hold livestock auctions occasionally and there is a thriving small market where you will find antique tools, an excellent second hand book unit, locally grown plants and beautiful handmade Cornish soaps and bath products!
