The West Country region
Cornwalls visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britains premier holiday destinations.
Launceston is situated on the Devon and Cornwall border and is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle which sits high above the town. Launceston also offers wonderful architecture including exquisite Georgian buildings. Just three miles away is the Tamar Otter Park and taking a trip on the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley on a 5 mile round trip is essential. Other places to visit are the stunning Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor and with delightful seaside towns nearby, Launceston is a perfect base all year round.

"Lovely rural retreat in Cornwall"
This barn conversion is on a hill overlooking a valley with wonderful views of farmlands and part of Launceston. It is spacious and well appointed with oven, hot plates, microwave, toaster and washing machine. Accesss is via a bitumen driveway with a good parking area adjacent to the barn. You can enjoy a walk along a path through wooded area at the bottom of the farm.
The barn has underfloor heating which maintained a constant cosy temperature throughout our stay. There is also a good towel warmer in the bathroom. Shower over bath but the bath is shaped to provide a good standing area for showering which is really good. The bed was comfortable.
The barn is beautifully presented and welcoming. It provides a great base from which to explore Cornwall and adjacent Devon, with Tintagel and Port Isaac about 40 minutes away, The Eden Project about 45 minutes drive and Lands End about 1hr 40 minutes away. Alternatively the barn also provides a pleasant relaxing environment and if the weather turns sour, it provides a cosy retreat with good TV options. There is no WiFi access so I had to detach from the internet and relax for the week.
Overall this barn provides a lovely rural retreat in Cornwall and we would love to come back some day.

Just arrived back from a lovely three nights at middle barn.The barn was faultless sparkerley clean tastefully decorated, and the most compfy bed, nice and cosy.Arrived to a warm welcome from the owner, who I might add didnt bother us but we could contact if needed.Arrived to a nice cold bottle of wine and many extras we didnt expect.The veiws were stunning, situated on top a hill over looking fields and some woods, our yorkshire terrier loved the walks in the woods, we see lots of dears in the wood to.All in all a truley lovely place.The town was five mins walk away but to be quite honest I would'nt bother.We didnt use any of the local pubs as we felt they all looked a bit rough.A car is a must as you will need to travel to go out for the day.

No problems with booking or access. Launceston is not an exciting holiday location, but both coasts and several attractions are within reasonable distance. The cottage and it's situation are gr… More
