  • “This cottage is simply wonderful!”


    It has absolutely everything you need, to make an enjoyable stay. The hot tub is very nice and in an enclosed veranda It looks out to the most beautiful garden, I have ever seen! Inside the cottage, my favourite room is the front room, the decor, very much to my taste and the ambiance is just so relaxing!!! The study area, perfect for reading the odd book or playing a board game (not that we used this room, to be honest.) The dining room, very spacious and perfect to host everyone for a family meal!! The kitchen and utility room, again, very well catered for and very much to my taste! Out of all the places I have stayed, I have never felt so at home and I really mean that. There is a cosy little hideaway, which lets in lots of sun or perfect for listening to the rain too!!! It also has a PS4 for any of those gamers out there....... There are three very large bedrooms, all with I think, king size beds. One bedroom has ensuite and there is a family bathroom for the other two bedrooms, the bath is to die for! Again, all rooms decorated and furnished with such style. The bear theme around the house really does make this cottage and the bear at the top of the stairs is simply beautiful. I love this house and will be back, just not sure when, with all the madness in the world at the moment! Thank you very much for a lovely stay and for the Presecco and chocolates, what a lovely touch!

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.
