    “Just returned from a lovely, relaxing week in the the stunning Railway Cottage.”

    The rear garden backs onto the railway platform and it was amazing to be able to see the fabulous steam trains coming and going right in front of us as we sat with our coffee and cream tea. The owners Kay and Nigel couldn't have made us feel more welcome and the cottage contained everything we could possibly need and much more. The location is great for exploring Devon and Cornwall but we really didn't feel the need to venture very far from Launceston.
