Nearest pub

The White Horse Inn Launceston (2 miles)

Situated in the heart of this ancient market town, call in for great traditional pub food and real ale. Dogs are welcome and there's a childrens menu available.

Nearest beach

Widemouth Beach (14 miles)

Just along the coast from the busy resort of Bude, Widemouth is a long, long stretch of sand backed by high cliffs. Unusual rock formations on the beach are a magnet for climbers while the Atlantic surf brings bodyboarders, kayakers and surfers here in their hundreds. Widemouth Bay is home to a scattering of houses, pubs, cafes and restaurants but there remains a definitive sense of having strayed off the beaten path here. There is a section open to dogs all year round, loads of parking and several surf schools.

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 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.

Launceston Castle (2 ¼ 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).

Lifton Hall (2 ½ miles)

Bar and restaurant in a Grade II listed building, parts of which date back to the 1600s.

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.

Lifton Strawberry Field Farm Shop (2 ½ miles)

Spend an afternoon plucking plump, juicy strawberries in the fields, then try to resist the aroma of freshly baked bread and hot pies luring you into the Barn farmhouse restaurant. If you want to stock up on West Country produce, the farm shop is bursting at the seams with local goodies.

You just can't beat pick your own Strawberries, they taste gorgeous and with a traditional farm shop alongside that sells everything you could possibly want, with the added bonus of it all being locally sourced and home-grown, you have to pay them a visit.

Great for a Sunday roast, and then you can pick up locally sourced veg, meat and bread straight out of the oven.

A Farm Shop with a difference.

Whether you want coffee and cake, a full blown roast lunch, a Cornish pasty or Saffron buns - this is the place - the cafe is open every day (you will need to get there early for Sunday lunch). Cooked on the premises the pies, pastries and cakes are to die for. The farm shop always has a good selection of fresh seasonal produce and the butcher's counter has a wide variety of locally farmed meat. For those of you with a cold box there are also pasties, pies, veg and fruits available from the freezer. Well worth a quick detour off the A30.
