    “Phone service was not as good as suggested on the property description but other than that it was great!”

The property

Launceston 6 miles.

Set on the fringes of Egloskerry, just six miles from Launceston, is this charming cottage, Hillside.

This fabulous property has a lovely mixture of authentic, traditional features.

Be welcomed into an open-plan living space with a compact kitchen wonderfully appointed to the front of the cottage and hosting a range of appliances for all your self-catering requirements.

From here, it leads you into a sitting room; cosy up on the plush sofa and unwind in front of the TV as you while away the hours until bed time.

Once the evening draws to a close, retire to the bedroom which comes with a double bed inviting you to get some much needed rest for the days ahead.

A modern shower room can be found towards the front of the property and has deluxe fixtures and fittings for all your needs.

To the front of the property is a wonderful patio terrace with a table and chairs, making the perfect spot to bring your cup of tea and a good book as you watch the sun rise.

Take a drive into the bustling town of Launceston and visit one of many delightful eateries where you can indulge a variety of delicious Cornish delicacies.

Visit some of Launceston's best sites including Launceston Castle, Launceston Steam Railway and Lawrence House Museum to name a few.

If you're a history fan, you might consider venturing through the moors and marshes of Bodmin Moor towards Dozmary pool which has been considered as the final resting place of the King's sword which he pulled from the stone, Exaclibur.

Further afield is one of Cornwall's magnificent Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pentire Point, also a National Trust area with dramatic headlands and hugely popular for walkers and cyclists who can join the South West Coast Path.

Within this area is the seaside village of Tintagel whose name springs images of the legendary figure King Arthur.

Said to have been born at its historic Tintagel Castle, this well-known attraction invites visitors from all over the world to explore its castle ruins, bask in the magnificent views across the Atlantic coast and soak up all of its rich history.

Stop off for some fresh produce such as fresh milk from the popular Cornish Moo and Davidstowe Cheese.

Surfers are also welcome, with Crackington Haven just 11 miles from this property and outdoor space for surfboards, there are many breathtaking cliff-walks along the coast too. Hillside is the perfect place to be for sightseers interested in Cornwall's rich history.

About the location


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. Visit the Tamar Otter Park just 3 miles away or take a trip on 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.
