We visited the pub twice during our stay. The first time we visited we had the Sunday lunch. The food and portion size was excellent value for money. The service was slick and friendly. A great experience. The second time we visited for an early evening meal during the week. The food was still up to a great standard but we one waitress serving, taking orders, clearing tables, etc and one person behind the bar, the service was slow (approx. 1 hour from when we arrived to when we received our food). We didn't stay for dessert because of this. I would still recommend and re-visit if I'm in the area.

Nearest beach

Crackington Haven (13 miles)

Picturesque little sandy and pebbly bay, shelterd by Pencarrow cliffs to the north and Cambeak headland to the south. Close to beach shops, pub and cafe.

A wonderful day on the beach

A quiet, secluded and sheltered beach. Not very busy, but very lovely. There is a car park and a very short stroll onto the beach. The beach is pebbley/rocky. It is sheltered due to the headlands. We sat and read, soaked up the sunshine, had a paddle in the sea and took photos. A short walk enabled us to get a takeaway cup of tea to bring back to the beach. Perfect!

Launceston is an upbeat town with a fascinating history and good range of shops. I recommend the castle, if you don't mind heights!

A great little find

We stopped here for afternoon tea and cake. The have a lovely selection of fresh food, cake and ice cream. There is a lovely terrace and a little garden with views over the valley. A great place for a quick bite to eat.

Perfect for lunch

My favourite place for lunch. All local and organic, with their own home grown vegetables and salads. Beautiful patchwork on display with a shop where you can buy materials and gifts. Book for one of Jo's patchwork courses if you're here when one is on.

Launceston Steam Railway (2 miles)

Straight out of Thomas the Tank Engine, this is a fun-filled excursion whatever the weather. Learn about the little locomotives, or just sit back and enjoy ride.

A quirky little train journey! We were glamping at Western Meadows (near New Mill Farm Park) and caught the quaint little steam train from the Farm Park into the town of Launceston for a look around. The children loved the 2 mile journey through countryside, it really did feel like we were stepping back in time.

New Mills Farm Park (50 yards)

Great fun for all the family with pets corner, skittles, play barn, ball pools, trampolines and giant slide (to name a few). No need to bring a picnic as you can enjoy great value food from the Hungry Farmer Cafe. Plus it's the only farm park to have a steam railway right outside the door to make the journey as much fun as the day.

Great place for young children.

New Mills Farm Park is a quaint family run park where young children will be in their element. Plenty of space for all sorts of play and plenty of animals to meet and pet. Really reasonable price for an all day outing and a great little cafe on site too (you are welcome to bring your own picnic too). The cute little steam train runs to and from Launceston throughout the holiday season (run by another company). All in all, a great day out for the children.

Could do better

I visited here with my two children (aged 4 and 7). Whilst they enjoyed themselves as an adult I guess I looked more at the detail. Some of the ride on go-karts/toys needed some TLC (broken pedals, bent wheels, sticking chains), the zip wire was pretty lame, I didn't get the concept of the 'toboggan' at all - going down a piece of sheet metal on a skateboard? The children enjoyed holding the rabbits but this was under parent supervision. OK, if parents are supervising. Whilst the park didn't close until 5pm, we found that some of the facilities had been locked away by 4.30pm. I know it's not expensive to get in but still...

Launceston Castle (2 miles)

The impressive keep sits high above the town, with a display charting its 1,000 years of history.

A lovely ruin!

It's worth climbing to the top of the keep (which sits on a huge mound) for the lovely views. The grounds are a good place to picnic (having bought a pasty at the baker's in the town).

The Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre (2 ¾ miles)

The sanctuary is home to orphaned otters and also runs an otter breeding programme, don't miss feeding time at 12pm and 3pm. There are other animals to see including fallow deer, wallabies, muntjac, and a variety of bird of prey.

The Otter Sanctuary is a lovely day out for adults and children alike. We enjoyed watching the otters being fed and listening to the knowledgeable staff talk about them. We strolled throught the woodland, fed deer, patted the rabbit and held a kestrel. There are plenty of places to enjoy a picnic and also a lovely cafe.

Tamar Otter Park

A great place to visit with children. An enclosed wooded walk area where the deer and wallabies are free to roam. Watch the otters swimming about and being fed. A lovely place for a picnic or alternatively there is The Countryman Inn at the end of the road that serves great food.
