Gateway to the moors and the coast, discover the delights of
northern Cornwall from a Launceston cottage, situated in and around
this ancient Cornish capital on the Devon/Cornwall border.
Lose yourself amid the narrow streets of this delightful market
town, steeped in history and dominated by an imposing Norman
castle. Delve into stylish galleries and appealing shops selling
exclusive gifts and mouth-watering produce. An indoor weekly market
and monthly open-air Butter Market ensure your Launceston
cottage's fridge will always stay stocked!
Follow the town trail and find St. Mary's Church with its
elaborate carvings and Launceston House Museum, a fine Georgian
building. For a bird's-eye view of the town's intricate
layout, not to mention sweeping views towards Dartmoor and Bodmin,
climb up to Launceston's ancient keep. Two long distance
walking trails also start here: the Two Castles Trail linking
Launceston with Okehampton and the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail.
Step aboard the Victorian carriages of the Launceston Steam
Railway, which chugs along the Kensey Valley to and from the hamlet
of New Mills, home to a small farm park. You'll also find a
couple of other family parks a short drive from town, as well as
the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre - a must for lovers of the
cute and furry!
Also look out for rural shows and other countryside events like
the Steam and Vintage Rally. Or get out and about in the Tamar
Valley, a designated AONB.
At the end of the day, enjoy a meal out in one of
Launceston's restaurants or simply unwind in your cosy
