Located in a country setting 7 miles from popular Launceston, the town’s Norman Castle, independent shops and local food producers.

There are two bedrooms in this property, one double and one bunk bedroom, which benefits from French windows to the garden. The bedrooms share a family bathroom with overhead shower and WC.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Buttermilk farm cottage. It was very well presented, clean and functional. The play area for the kids was a great addition and gave them something extra to do whilst waiting for dinners etc. The location was great with places of interest/beaches within 20 or so minutes in any direction. The owners are extremeRead morely friendly and were exceptional with our two young children, allowing them to tag along and help with feeding of the animals. Highly recommended!!! Hide

This is a lovely barn conversion situated right on the farm. An ideal base for exploring all of North Cornwall (and further afield).
