Visit Launceston

Commonly referred to as 'the Gateway', signifying the border between Devon and Cornwall, the skyline of the picturesque village of Launceston is dominated by the magnificent ruins of an 11th century Norman castle. Its cobbled streets are adorned with charming shops and cafes, and the Launceston Steam Railway provides a delightful day out for families and couples alike. It’s a great destination for a Cornish holiday.

Wildlife watching in Cornwall

With miles upon miles of unspoilt coastline and range of diverse habitats, Cornwall is one of the best places in the British Isles to see marine mammals, sharks and seabirds from the land and sea. But with dozens of places around Cornwall’s coast where you can spot wildlife in action, where are the best locations to get up close and personal with the giants from the deep, or the best time of year to go birdwatching or seal spotting?

A local's guide to Port Isaac

An enchanting little village on the rugged north coast of Cornwall, Port Isaac is home to Doc Martin, the endearingly named 'squeezy belly alley' and a maze of narrow streets inviting you to explore.

A Cornish Gateway

Perfectly positioned for just about everything in the South West, Launceston is just inside the Cornish border, so you can easily hop across to Devon if you fancy it during your stay.

Sandwiched between Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park, you’ll never be short of options when it comes to rural strolling, and with fantastic beaches on both the north and south coast of Cornwall, you’ll have your pick of the pack if it’s a lazy day on the sand you’re after!

Launceston’s 11th century castle ruins offer a wonderful glimpse into the history of the town, and dominate the pretty skyline of the area. Meanwhile, if you’d rather stay more grounded, the Launceston Steam Railway will leave you chuffed after a day spent on the tracks.
