  • “The owner, Helen, was so lovely and friendly and made us feel very welcome.”

    The cottage was beautiful, extremely well equipped and is in a lovely peaceful spot. Every comfort has been thought about and we felt it was very luxurious. We will certainly return to this wonderful property.

The property

Lifton 1.6 miles.

Lying in the quiet hamlet of Liftondown, not far from the village of Lifton, is this beautifully finished barn conversion; Langham House Cottage.

Next door to the owner's home, the cottage boasts a reverse-level layout, incorporating classic country style with fresh contemporary features, it's the perfect romantic escape for two in Devon.

Step up into the property and first discover the beautiful ground-floor bedroom where a luxurious super-king-size bed presents a welcoming spot to wind down in at the end of the day, with ground-floor underfloor heating to keep you warm.

Opposite this room is the stunning ground-floor bathroom; take time to indulge in a relaxing soak in the large double-ended tub with a handheld shower, or feel refreshed with a shower in the large walk-in corner enclosure in here too.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor where you'll spend long relaxing evenings with your loved one, with a homely woodburning stove perched in front of the feature wall, and a Smart TV great for watching the latest Netflix release while snuggled up on the large sofa.

Head across the room to the stylish fitted kitchen and dining area where a host of appliances are at your fingertips for rustling up delicious romantic meals for two.

On a balmy summer evening, take the conversation outside to the lovely first-floor decking, great for soaking up the last of the evening sun as you drink in the incredible rolling countryside views alongside your glass of wine, with an enclosed lawn space below too, great for letting your dog stretch their legs.

The hamlet of Liftondown is just a stone's throw from the village of Lifton where you can find all you need from the fabulous farm shop, Strawberry Fields Lifton, selling locally sourced fresh produce, perfect for your self-catered stay, along with several pubs including The Arundell Arms which features in the Good Pub Guide.

Enjoy a day exploring the nearby town of Launceston, once the capital of Cornwall, it is home to the imposing remains of a Norman castle dominating the skyline, with two town trails to help you discover the heritage of this market town.

Hop onto the wonderful Launceston Steam Railway for a journey back in time in a restored Victorian carriage, taking you through the unspoilt countryside of Cornwall, with Newmills Farm Park being a stop on the way so you can enjoy a fun day out before catching the train home.

Wildlife enthusiasts won't want to miss a chance to see the cute creatures at the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre where British and Asian Short Clawed Otters live along with fallow deer, wallabies, meerkats and several birds of prey, an exciting day out for all!

Walkers can delight in exploring the stunning Tamar Valley, Dartmoor National Park and Bodmin Moor, all of which boast a wealth of marked walking trails, or try something new like going canoeing along the River Tamar.

Whatever you decide to do, return each day to the wonderful Langham House Cottage.
