  • "Delightful property and lovely hosts."

    Cream tea was welcomed and having a pint of milk in the fridge gratefully received after a long journey. Property close to Launceston for shops, restaurants and takeaways. Lots of good information provided by hosts in folders in the property. Another great break with Sykes in Cornwall.

  • "An ideal location for exploring North, East, & West Cornwall & South Devon."

    Be warned, tho', that the seclusion of this property comes at the cost of a mile long single track road with no passing places. Also the shared conservatory is not attached to the property but across the garden. Really lovely place.

  • "Lovely cottage, friendly owners who make you feel welcome."

    Lovely setting with great views. Only Ithing I would say is that the fridge/freezer is a little small so with family of 4 it is a challenge. But that wouldn't stop us returning as it was very comfortable and great spot.

  • "A nice clean well-appointed cottage in rural Cornwall."

    An easy drive to both the north and south coast beaches. We struggled with the Wifi, there was plenty of signal strength but the internet connection was very intermittent and slow. I had to purchase a 5 day BT Openzone pass to connect via a nearby property.

    The cottage was perfect foe me and my 2 children. I could not fault the cottage itself, nor the facilities!! The hosts were truly lovely - nothing was too much of a bother and we were welcomed with a cream tea...LUSH! There was nothing that hadn't been thought of - fully stocked kitchen ware (even the small things had been thought of!), washing machine, tumble dryer, and a fab shared room of which beach towels, body boards, board games, books etc were all free for guests to borrow. Beautiful location, peaceful and quiet and lots to do in the surrounding areas. I highly recommend!

    A great location from which to tour the North Cornwall area. A very cosy and comfortable cottage with a really lovely reception from the owners (scones awaited our arrival and a really helpful pack which they produced of local walks). Returning to the cottage each evening was something to look forward to - we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you!

  • "This Cottage was the perfect place to stay to explore North Cornwall with its beautiful beaches, gardens and harbours full of character."

    With only 30min to the northern coast and 45min to the south, you can always tailor your day out and not go very far to explore new things every day. We had a lovely welcome from the owners and some tasty scones, some milk and butter in the fridge as well to get started. The cottage has all a family needs for a stay of a week or two from a washing machine and iron up to crabbing basket and outdoor games. Really pleased and so were the children with the cars and wendy house to play in the garden. Definitely, recommend.

    From the location, I was able to visit all the towns in the north of Cornwall, and I also managed to go to Charlestown, St Austell and spent a wonderful day at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Lorraine and Ulli were very hospitable. There is plenty of seating in the large garden and a sun room to sit out of the wind. There is a large lawn area which my dog enjoyed running around when the weather was fine. I would recommend this property

    I went with my partner and two young children. They loved the giant garden and fish pond, and the kids toys available kept them occupied whist we enjoyed the sun loungers! The owners were great and welcoming, and provided all the necessary information and tourist leaflets. At night it was silent, and ensured a great night sleep. I would highly recommend this cottage, and I would definitely go back again.

Trevosper Barn

An attractive group containing three stone cottages and a barn conversion, in a countryside setting with fabulous views over the fields from the garden. The cottages are next to each other in a courtyard and lie within the hamlet of Polyphant. The owners also live within the courtyard in a converted farmhouse. This is a quiet, peaceful rural location, 5 miles west of the historic town of Launceston but within minutes of the main A30 route through Cornwall. The large, half-acre communal garden outside these Launceston cottages backs onto open countryside, and has a conservatory overlooking the wildlife pond; visitors can enjoy some quiet time here, with the added benefit of a small library of books and coffee-making facilities. There are some fabulous traditional pubs nearby, most of which are child-friendly and many of which accept dogs. The nearest to these Launceston cottages is only 1.5 miles away. This group of Launceston cottages are in an ideal location for exploring a whole range of pursuits, especially the dramatic North Cornwall coastline, including Widemouth Bay, which is particularly good for surfing, rock pools and beach games and is also dog-friendly. Walkers are spoilt for choice, with Bodmin Moor on the doorstep, dominated by dramatic granite tors which tower over the sweeping expanses of open moorland. Why not take a family cycle ride along the gentle reaches of the nearby Camel Trail, a traffic-free route following the course of the river through woodland and moorland? These Launceston cottages offer a great base to explore and unwind together.

About the location


Launceston 5 miles; Truro 41 miles.

Just inside the county boundary, this delightful village is situated among rolling meadowland, wooded valleys and winding country lanes. A few miles to the east, the ancient county town of Launceston with its shops, leisure centre, Norman castle and local history museum looks out over the deeply wooded valley and the River Tamar, while in the other direction lie the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, with its craggy tors, spectacular scenery and Daphne Du Maurier’s famous Jamaica Inn. With a wealth of tiny hamlets, country pubs and interesting walks nearby, there is also superb fishing, abundant wildlife and a number of golf courses to tempt the visitor. The north coast beaches are only 14 miles away and the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within 40 minutes; Penzance and the far west are just over an hour by car and to the east there’s the wild open spaces of Dartmoor. A magical area for those seeking peace, tranquillity, stunning scenery and a wide range of attractions.
