Remembered by many as home to the Dobwalls Adventure Park and the famous Forest Railway, founded in 1970 by the Southern family, at its height, the railway featured two miles of track and a fine collection of miniature steam locomotives. The name of the site, Southern Halt, was specifically chosen to reflect and fondly recall the historic use and ownership of the land.

Located in east Cornwall between Liskeard and Bodmin, Southern Halt offers easy access to both the north and south coasts.
Liskeard is an historic market town and sits impressively at the head of the Looe Valley in the ancient Hundred of West Wivelshire, featuring an array of fine buildings, shops, cafés and restaurants. Six miles away, Bodmin Moor is waiting to be discovered – an epic granite moorland famed for its myths, legend and beautiful landscape. Drop down onto the coast where you’ll find the charming harbourside communities of Looe and Polperro. Surf the waves of Polzeath and Newquay – two of the world’s finest breaks – before visiting the cathedral and shops of Truro; head west and explore the studios and galleries in St Ives.
