  • "Perfect place to stay to relax and a great location to get to other areas of Cornwall and Devon."

    The added benefit of the swimming pool especially on the hot days was great and the owners leave you to get on with relaxing but also offered a pizza night for any of the guests in any of the cottages. Beautiful part of the country and would love to visit again in the future.

  • "Lovely stay at The Old Apple Tallet, the location was beautiful, quiet and peaceful on Alison and John's farm just outside Launceston."

    The cottage was gorgeous, well equipped with everything you needed and amazing WiFi! The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom lush. Alison was reassuringly nearby should we have needed anything but honestly everything had been thought of. Loved it made our trip just perfect.

  • "The cottage was amazing and the owners made our stay perfect."

    However the information from Sykes was inaccurate. The list of pubs and places to eat showed had pubs closed down 2 years ago. Leaving us tired and hungry having driven to these places after a long long drive. I would recommend the place to stay but not Sykes.

  • "We had a great time in this cottage, it's exactly as described."

    The pool is 10 steps from the door & my son (age 7) loved the park & fields. It is in the middle of nowhere so alot of travelling needed but that was fine by us. The cottage was well equipped they had everything you would need at home so no need to take anything. I would recommend taking wash powder just in case you need to do a wash as we did after being at the beach a few times. Widemouth Bay was a must, gorgeous beach. We also went to watermouth Castle which was great for young kids. I would highly recommend taking food for the first night if your not getting a delivery as the town is about a 15-20 min drive away on single track roads which can be challenging sometimes (not any reflection on cottage). You can take your own floats which was a must for the kids to play with. We would definitely go back there with the grandkids.

  • "We loved the accommodation."

    The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Although there are others staying on the complex, we still felt we had our privacy. Due to Covid 19, there was a time slot for each family for the shared pool. We think this worked really well and preferred having our 1 hour swim with just our family. Great location. A little farm shop up the road with fresh milk vending machine! Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.

    ! The owners couldn’t have done more for us especially when we arrived late in the evening in the middle of a mild storm! The cottage was lovely from top to bottom (we really enjoyed having a log fire on the go on a rainy evening) And we couldn’t have asked for more from the cottage or owners!!!

  • "The cottage was clean and had everything you would need but failed to mention extremely low beams on the upper floor."

    the front of the property was very over grown and didn't entice you to sit outside. the pool was great and warm enough to use well into the evening. the property was in the middle of nowhere, and the roads weren't great for going walking on. to get to many of cornwalls attractions we had to drive 30-60 minutes each way everyday. wouldn't recommend the property or area.

  • "The cottage was in a lovely quiet location."

    It was clean and spacious, and Alison had kindly left biscuits, tea bags, milk and apple juice for us on arrival. There were a few evenings which were a bit cool when we got back from our walk, but the central heating was easy to operate and soon we were plenty warm enough. It was almost a pity it wasn't cooler so that we could have lit the log burner! The bathroom was also spacious and the monsoon shower was very relaxing. One evening it was warm enough for me to use the heated outdoor pool, and this was a lovely experience, watching the sheep in the meadow and the trees waving in the beeze. We had everything we needed for a very enjoyable holiday, and would both recommend the cottage, and hope to return sometime.

This delightful property also has an outdoor heated swimming pool which is shared with two other holiday homes within the grounds.

As you step inside you will feel the characterful...

Waterloo Farm

Waterloo Farm boasts spacious accommodation with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and is centrally located for visiting all of Cornwall and Devon, within very easy reach of the sandy beaches and rugged cliffs of the North Cornwall coast. There are numerous award winning restaurants, local food festivals, gardens and golf courses to visit, among many attractions easily reached within the area, such as The Eden Project, Plymouth Aquarium, and King Arthur's Castle at Tintagel, providing fun-filled action the year-round. Alongside the farm with its magnificent livestock and amid colourful hedgerows and flowers, live an abundance of wild birds, butterflies and animals such as foxes, otters and badgers. A wildlife hide overlooks the River Ottery for peaceful viewing outdoors, or should you wish to stay within the cosiness of the interior, the natural beauty can be viewed from the TVs based in every cottage. Webcams have been carefully set up around the farm, so you may just behold swallows eggs on the verge of hatching or baby bats leaving their nursery. There are lots of fun-filled activities on the farm as well as acres of lush Cornish countryside and two miles of riverside walks to explore. Try clay pigeon shooting or river fishing and enjoy the wonderful outdoor heated swimming pool, games room and giant sandpit. Meet the lovely farm animals on-site, to your surprise there may be calves and lambs to feed or eggs to collect, depending on the time of year you visit. Consider a stay on Waterloo Farm for an unforgettable family holiday.

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.
