  • "A fantastic cottage in beautiful grounds."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything that you would ever need for a great holiday

  • "A very warm, welcoming and cosy cottage for our Christmas stay."

    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.

  • "A fabulous week in a beautiful well equipped spotless cottage."

    The views from the windows are breathtaking. Both the lounge and the bedrooms overlook the gardens and grounds which are absolutely beautiful. Everything you could possibly need is provided in this lovely cottage. Coupled with the friendly host John I must say this exceeded our expectations. Hopefully we will return.

  • "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.

    Any issues were addressed quickly, light bulb changed, tap that stopped working fixed. Would be more that happy to stay again if in the Cornwall Devon boulder area.

  • "Wonderful location, fabulous grounds and farmland, great views and countryside all around."

    Kitchen utensils & crockery exactly what we needed; cosy and well heated; quiet and peaceful, friendly and approachable hosts. Wifi is not very good but it did work with one or two short breaks (which is just part of being in this location I expect) and we did have some phone signal.

  • "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 owners were really pleasant with a warm reception on arrival and the welcome pack and supplies were fabulous, nothing was too much trouble. In a lovely location for piece and quiet and within easy reach of many of Cornwalls attractions and coast lines.

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.

About the location

LAUNCESTON

Bude 19 miles.

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. You can take a stroll to the Dog friendly Willow Tree Cafe and Woodland Walk or visit the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley on a 5-mile round trip. Launceston is within driving distance of the seaside resorts of Bude and Padstow to the north, and Plymouth to the south, as well as the stunning Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. A superb base for exploring Cornwall and Devon.
