The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it’s a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to its position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall’s highest point, the heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall’s stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Stein’s empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.

Perfect place for a family Christmas holiday
As soon as we walked into the barns and saw the lovely decorations and festive gifts we knew we were welcomed. Having the 2 barns connected was ideal for our family to enjoy our Christmas celebrations. The play barn was a great addition to the setting.
