Area The town of Launceston, situated on the Devon and Cornwall border, has wonderful architecture, including some fine Georgian buildings in the central square and is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle sitting high above the town. Visit the Tamar Otter Park just 3 miles away or take a trip on the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley on a 5 mile round trip.

It was a lovely quiet retreat, the owners are lovely, the views and area it is in is lovely. Ideal for walks and also the cottage is convenient for Devon and Cornwall. Really did not want to leave, have booked with Sykes for several years now and always been pleased with cottages but this one excelled expectation.
Lovely setting on a country lane with beautiful views and lots of peace and quiet.
Fantastic property, quiet location and right out in the countryside!
Lovely cottage, lots of interesting places to visit.
Lovely cottage, very peaceful, just what we needed, getting away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives! Set in lovely countryside, and easy access to lots of places to visit. The owners were very helpful.
Very nice location, nice and quiet with not much traffic.
The cottage had everything we needed
It was very clean and comfortable
Very good location for touring around - as we did
Only thing we were disappointed with was the height of the ceilings upstairs
My husband is over 6 foot and he could only stand upright in the middle of the bedroom
I was fine being 5 foot 6 inches. I think it should state the ceilings are low in the bedroom and bathroom
I would come back - but with my daughters not my husband
