Bedrooms: 7
A conveniently situated and highly attractive Victorian house with excellent character in a stunning position with outstanding views, together with a successful holiday letting business and just under 7 acres in all.


This beautiful, non-listed, Victorian house stands overlooking the Kensey Valley, which provides the most tremendous views to the horizon over the open countryside. The main house accommodation is wide ranging and benefits from large rooms with high ceilings and much inherent character.

Conveniently placed, just a mile from the A30 and Launceston town, access and amenities are easily sourced. The property provides the opportunity to step into a successful holiday letting business, with three barn conversions and a shepherd s hut providing substantial income. The potential exists, subject to planning consents, to increase the glamping offering within the land. In particular, with the west side facing the views.

In all, the property provides a rare lifestyle home and income opportunity/smallholding, situated within easy reach of shops, schools and road connections.


The property is situated a mile from the Launceston A30 junction, as well as the town centre. Launceston is a former market town that offers a wide range of shops, including supermarkets, M & S Foodhall, doctors, dentists and vets, and schools, including the popular private day school, St Josephs. There are also two 18-hole golf courses as well as sports and social clubs.

The A30 connects to Exeter and Truro, with Plymouth via the A388, all being around 45 minutes drive. The nearest train station is Okehampton, which is approximately 20 minute s drive, with direct trains to Exeter (30 minutes) and onto London if required. The property lies quite central within the county, the north and south coasts being easily accessible, with the north being around 18 miles. Along this coastline lie the excellent surfing beaches of Bude and Widemouth bay, followed down the coast the well-hidden but beautiful Crackington Haven and further on the renowned Boscastle and Tintagel. Landrends also lies close to both moors, 20 minute s drive to west Dartmoor and 10 minutes to Bodmin moor. The property, therefore, sits within the perfect spot for an easy access country holiday or luxury short break exploring the best that Cornwall has to offer.
