Carpenters Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed cottage, full of character with slate floors, low beams and even lower doorways, situated next door to the site of the old forge and attached to the site of the old wheelwright's shop where wagons were made, in the village of Langore, near Launceston.
This is a romantic, William Morris-inspired cottage, perfectly located in a quiet setting, but close enough to visit all the many historical towns in the area and also sample the vast selection of pubs and restaurants available.
All the internal joinery is grade II listed, (where you will be able to find the original roman numeral carpenters marks carved on the somewhat uneven floor).
Ancient wooden stairs lead up to the bedroom with its high vaulted ceiling and en-suite shower room.
The sitting room with dining area has a stone fireplace with a decorative cloam oven and old range stove.
The well-equipped kitchen comes complete with granite worktops adding to the character.
Outside there are two patios to capture both the morning and afternoon sun, whilst on the other side of the cottage there is a garden area just perfect for watching the sun go down at the end of the day.
The village of Langore has two acres of open access land including a delightful woodland walk and dog-friendly paddock adjacent to the village green.
Close by is the ancient town of Launceston with its old castle keep and range of shopping and leisure facilities.
Also nearby are several coarse fisheries, two golf courses, Launceston steam railway and the delightful Cowslip Workshops, which offer monthly craft/patchwork workshops, as well as a shop, cafe and occasional exhibitions.
A section of the National Cycle Network route 327 follows the beautiful Kensey River valley from Launceston to Egloskerry.
The cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful countryside in Cornwall and you could drive to Plymouth, Liskeard or Tavistock enjoying the delights of this part of the country on the way.
Carpenters Cottage really is the perfect romantic retreat for any time of the year.
