Just show me Launceston Cottages

Gateway to the moors and the coast, discover the delights of northern Cornwall from a Launceston cottage, situated in and around this ancient Cornish capital on the Devon/Cornwall border.

Lose yourself amid the narrow streets of this delightful market town, steeped in history and dominated by an imposing Norman castle. Delve into stylish galleries and appealing shops selling exclusive gifts and mouth-watering produce. An indoor weekly market and monthly open-air Butter Market ensure your Launceston cottage's fridge will always stay stocked!

Attractions close to your Launceston cottage

Follow the town trail and find St. Mary's Church with its elaborate carvings and Launceston House Museum, a fine Georgian building. For a bird's-eye view of the town's intricate layout, not to mention sweeping views towards Dartmoor and Bodmin, climb up to Launceston's ancient keep. Two long distance walking trails also start here: the Two Castles Trail linking Launceston with Okehampton and the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail.

Step aboard the Victorian carriages of the Launceston Steam Railway, which chugs along the Kensey Valley to and from the hamlet of New Mills, home to a small farm park. You'll also find a couple of other family parks a short drive from town, as well as the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre - a must for lovers of the cute and furry!

Also look out for rural shows and other countryside events like the Steam and Vintage Rally. Or get out and about in the Tamar Valley, a designated AONB.

At the end of the day, enjoy a meal out in one of Launceston's restaurants or simply unwind in your cosy Launceston cottage.
