Just 2 miles from Launceston, ‘Gateway to Cornwall', with its castle and heritage steam railway, this delightful detached stone barn conversion is your base for a tour of the Cornwall/Devon border area. One of a complex of five properties, it stands in rolling farmland and is reached by a quiet lane. From this dog-friendly nook, choose between clifftop or moorland walks, beach days, pretty harbour village visits, leisurely lunches at great country pubs, or outdoor activities like fishing or horse-riding.

A stand-out feature is the large barn windows giving you huge views and marvellous light in the spacious and well-equipped open-plan living/dining/kitchen space. Comfy bedrooms await upstairs. Outside, sizzle up a BBQ in your private patio and lawn area while sampling local craft ales and ciders. Children will love the large shared lawn area, with slide and trampoline. In this complex of properties, extended families or large groups can book together, for a linked holiday and easy transport arrangements.

Launceston is the local shopping and dining hub offering excellent local Cornish produce. Crackington Haven (21 miles away) is a deep cove great for a varied beach day, with sand stretching before you at low tide and rock pools to investigate with net and bucket, or there's Bude's popular Summerleaze Beach for a classic Cornish seaside visit within 20 miles. For walkers, Bodmin Moor's bracing open terrain begins 11 miles away – heading back, rest your legs at the pub in postcard-pretty Altarnun village on the edge of the moor.

The cottage is fantastic, we really enjoyed our stay and we felt secure in the fact that our cockapoo was settled in the property with no means of escape.

A beautiful cottage and really well equipped. Our children loved playing on the trampoline and watching the sheep and cows. The owner was away when we stayed, but her parents were on hand when needed and were just lovely, welcoming people. Lots of places to visit within 30 minutes. We visited Bude, Tintagel Castle, Boscastle, Lydford Gorge (just beRead moreautiful). We had one rainy day, but felt grateful for a day to laze around in the beautiful accommodation. Fully recommend this holiday let. Hide

Beautiful cottage in a great location for exploring north Cornwall. Our girls loved watching life on a real farm, and our own wee garden area as well as use of the trampoline was great. Finding scones, jam and cream waiting for us on arrival made our day.
