Liskeard is an ancient stannary and market town in south-east Cornwall approximately 20 miles (32 km) west of Plymouth. In a prime location between moor and sea, Liskeard is a fantastic hub from which to explore the delights of the county of Cornwall. To the south, the hidden coves and resorts of the lovely Cornish coast can be easily reached, whilst to the north of the town is the vast expanse of Bodmin Moor. Liskeard is an incredibly beautiful town, which is both architecturally and historically significant. The town boasts many original Victorian shop fronts and interiors in addition to a Guild Hall, a Clock Tower and a Town Hall. The recently renovated Stuart House is now a venue for the Arts and has a very attractive garden.
