The cottage was lovely and warm. The owners made you so welcome. Lovely quite location, beautiful period property with all that you would want for a week away. If you are a railway enthusiast you actually back on to the station of the Launceston Steam Railway. It is a narrow gauge line.

A unique and worthwhile experience!

Nigel and Kay were very friendly and helpful

If you are keen on Steam railways you will love this place. Kay and Nigel are so passionate about running the Launceston steam railway and have devoted their lives to keeping it going by restoring old engines into tip top condition. Although it was closed to the public because of C-19, they gave us a special trip on our own, up the track for 2 miles, on their diesel engine. Great fun.
