    “The house is lovely and the photos do not do it justice, everything you need is there, plenty of space for everyone to relax and when you do want to be together some lovely communal spaces.”

    Beds were comfortable, and throws provided for the sofas. The garden is large with lots to explore and our dog enjoyed this space. We had an issue with the hot tub but this was fixed as soon as we reported it, excellent service. Just a note for others our dog needs to go for a walk and you need to get in your car and drive back to the town as there are no pavements and the road is narrow and busy and most do not keep to the speed limit so bare this in mind. One other tip would be to include what 3 words to locate the property more accurately. Overall an excellent stay.

The property

Penlaurel is a stunning all-white detached Grade Ii Listed property with beautiful sash windows, in the hamlet of Daw's House just a mile outside of Launceston.

Resting equidistant from the north and south coastlines of Cornwall, this charming cottage is perfect for families, couples and friends looking to explore a fabulous region.

The serene surroundings make it very easy to relax and unwind, within a romantic setting.

Infused with modern features, the interior comprises a kitchen sweeping round to a TV area, with patio doors opening out into the mature gardens.

Cook up a feast for your loved ones and enjoy dining under the glow from the woodburning stove nestled at the head of the table.

The study offers a quiet spot to get lost in a book and the lounge oozes elegance and style, adorned with picture frames, lamps, upholstery and plush carpet.

Store your boots in the utility after a long country walk.

The cloakroom next door conveniently assists you on the ground floor.

Upstairs, crisp linens welcome you into three delightful bedrooms.

Relieve you aches and pains, with a hot soak in the bath before laying down to rest.

And in the morning you can wake up to a refreshing shower in the en-suite.

Outside, enjoy the luxuries of the hot tub, a sparkling glass of bubbly compliments the setup wonderfully, with bordering trees sheltering you from the rest of the garden.

The local area offers much to be explored with theatrics in a canopy-covered moorland amphitheatre at Sterts Theatre and the heather-clad moorland of Bodmin Moor.

Visit the Tamar Otter Park just 3 miles away or take a trip on the steam train.

For an action packed day out, be sure to travel to Liskeard, where The Giant Swing and 450m long zip wire are based at Adrenalin Quarry.

The seaside resorts of Bude and Padstow are also within driving distance.

A beautiful location to be enjoyed from a magical getaway.

About the location


Bude 19 miles.

The town of Launceston, situated on the Devon and Cornwall border, has wonderful architecture, including some fine Georgian buildings in the central square, and is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle sitting high above the town. Visit the Tamar Otter Park just 3 miles away or take a trip on the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley on a 5-mile round trip. Launceston is within driving distance of the seaside resorts of Bude and Padstow to the north, and Plymouth to the south, as well as the stunning Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. A superb base for exploring Cornwall and Devon.
