Great location, clean and comfortable

A lovely cottage for everyone but especially for those who like steam trains. At 140 years old Lilian is still a working train alongside her slightly younger engine shed mates, Covertcoat & Dorothea. The cottage owners who are working on the railway most days, are very helpful & welcoming. The kitchen is well equipped & spotless as is the rest of the cottage with comfortable beds & pillows. The chairs & sofa in the living room are also comfortable with free sat if you want to watch a little TV at the end of the day & there is a separate dining room. The garden opens onto the platform & the cottage has its own large parking space in the lane in front of the cottage. The famous Jamaica Inn is a 20 minute drive away serving breakfast & dinners & is only one of many places to visit in this very beautiful part of the UK. ...

We had an excellent break, Nigel and Kay are truly superb hosts-on hand when needed and very welcoming, we had a very memerorable holiday. Railway cottage is highly recommended by us!

Absolutely loved our week here. The setting was beautiful and so lovely to enjoy the steam railway. The owners were around if you needed them and wonderful with their hospitality and local knowledge. Launceston is a really nice interesting town and handy for trips out in any direction - coast, rural or city. Really recommend a stay here....

A great base for anyone interested in steam railways. Several National Trust and English Heritage properties, the North Cornish coast, Bodmin and Dartmoor are within easy reach.
