    Idéalement situé pour rayonner dans la Cornouaille. Les propriétaires sont accueillants, charmants, discrets. Nous y retournerions avec plaisir.

  • "Lovely and quiet, ideal for exploring northern Cornwall and west Devon."

    No amenities nearby, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Very clean and you can tell the hosts take pride in the place with fresh cut flowers from the orchard awaiting you on arrival along with a welcome hamper (the homemade jam was very nice!)

    It has been upgraded significantly since the pictures were taken, we had a very pleasant winter break in the Cornish countryside. Everything works perfectly, the hosts are very helpful and the place is pristine. I can highly recommend it and we would definitely return in the summer to enjoy the beautiful garden! Thank you Jon and Vi

  • "The owners were very friendly and the cottage well appointed."

    The unreliable wifi was irritating despite being informed of this. We were expecting to be closer to civilisation, especially a local pub. There were no footpaths that we could safely use so did feel a bit stir crazy at times.

  • "This place is perfect!"

    The setting is simply beautiful, the location is quite easy to find to so close to amazing places to visit. I strongly recommend this place for a base to come back to whilst exploring Cornwall/Devon. Go to Tintagel Castle/Merlin's Cave, Dewerstone Woods, St Necturns Glen, Lanhydrock, etc. and bring back some groceries on the way for a nice home cooked meal. Note that the kitchen is fully kitted with cooking instruments and such!

  • "We had a lovely holiday using Orchard End as our base."

    We enjoyed the beaches at Bude and also explored places like the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan as these were only an hour away. Cottage was as listed. Clean and spacious, kitchen well equipped. The rest of it was more sparse, probably due to Covid restrictions, but didn't affect our holiday experience.

  • "Cottage was peaceful, clean, and well equipped with wonderful views."

    The owners were friendly and on hand in case of any problems. Our only one was that at first we couldn't get Wi-Fi but it was soon sorted. If you didn't fancy going far there's a lovely walk down to the river, or we found a stroll round the village after supper enjoyable - the church has a wonderful graveyard with stones going back to the 1700s. There's so much to do quite close. Both Dartmoor and Bodmin, but the beaches are also not far - although we were there for Moor walking really so didn't get to the coast. We did visit the Otter Sanctuary and Davidstow Airfield Museum, both we would highly recommend. Our four night stay was just perfect and we would highly recommend the property. OK is this too good to be true? Here we go then I've found a moan ....... The very hard British Isles Jigsaw has a corner piece missing!!!!!!!

The property

Launceston 5.5 miles.

A cottage in the village of Boyton, attached to the owners' Cornish farmhouse in an idyllic rural setting alongside the magnificent River Tamar, just a short drive from Launceston in east Cornwall.

Set in more than 120 acres of meadows and farmland, with an abundance of flora and wildlife, and freedom to roam, this Cornish cottage will certainly appeal to small groups wishing to enjoy the peace, tranquillity and relaxed atmosphere of this working farm.

The sitting room with woodburner and far-reaching views over the farmland, the well-fitted kitchen with dining area, the two double bedrooms and the bathroom all ensure that guests have plenty of space in this Cornish cottage.

From this wonderful Launceston cottage it is easy to enjoy a spot of fishing on the half-mile length of river on the farm, relax with an easel and paintbrush to capture the beauty of the landscape, sit and relax and listen to the birds or enjoy wonderful walks.

A ten minute drive away from this Cornish cottage is the old county town of Launceston with its imposing castle perched above the town, enjoyable steam train and Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre.

Further afield is Dartmoor National Park for fabulous walking, surfing beaches near Bude and a number of beautiful National Trust properties to visit.

A stay here in this peaceful Cornish cottage will refresh the spirit, and ensure you want to return.
