  • "Had a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage."

    All mod cons including a washer/dryer which was a bonus. Having a evening meal on the balcony looking across the fields with sheep and cows was really wonderful. Huge bed was great after a day of walking. The welcome gift of goodies from Stephen and Helen was much appreciated. Would highly recommend this property

    Lovely cottage in great location to get to numerous places for days out, whilst owners live in house adjacent they are on hand if require any assistance but give privacy, great enclosed areas for dog to run around, with lovely views across the countryside would certainly look to book again

    The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. A great location for both north and south coast. Fresh eggs were very much appreciated. Helen and Stephen made us feel very welcome. It was good to be able to use the field as there were no animals to let the dogs run off the lead.

  • "Langham House Cottage is amazing."

    Helen and Stephen made myself, my husband and our 4 1/2 month old Labradoodle feel exceptionally welcome and we could not fault everything about the cottage or the hosts. The most fantastic location with the most outstanding views of the countryside….. Seeing Cows, Sheep, Chickens, Pheasants and an assortment of birds was delightful and sitting on the balcony eating breakfast watching the world go by (well animals) was something that you cannot imagine by just reading the write up on the cottage. We didn’t want to leave!! We never really want to visit the same place twice, simply because we have been there but we will DEFINITELY visit LHC again in the future. Probably the best staycation we have ever had !!

  • "Stunning cottage in an equally stunning location."

    The owners are nice, friendly and helpful people. Our stay at the cottage was extremely comfortable as everything had been thought of the only very small downside was the chairs to the table on the balcony. We really enjoyed our evening meals on the balcony but couldn't sit for to long as the chairs became quickly uncomfortable. Please people except that as a very minor complaint as the whole experience with this cottage is amazing it's a really must try cottage. Being here is a really central place for visiting north and south coasts.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are happy to hear you had a lovely stay. We have spoken to the owners and they have advised that there are cushions located on the coffee table for the outside chairs. Property Owner

  • "The photos do not do this property justice."

    What a lovely place to stay, the bed was so comfy if you do not have a great nights sleep then I dont know where you will have a better one. The bathroom is of a high standard. I would advise the owners to just check and adjust the shower doors as they were not closing as they should be and I would hate to see the lovely flooring get damaged by water from the shower. The kitchen and living room area has everything you need to have a nice relaxing breakfast or evening meal after you have been out for the day. The weather was mixed so didnt get a chance to sit outside and enjoy the view. It was very quiet which is just perfect for myself and my partner. I can not recommend this place highly enough and I would book this property again.

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.
