Top quality accommodation, well stocked with kitchen equipment. Nice & quiet location with only sheep & cows as neighbours. Will definitely consider this property if we go back to that part of Cornwall. Close to the A30 so made getting around very easy. Try a walk into Launceston we did it a couple of times
