My wife and I chose Launceston as a location because it was an ideal base for all the places we intended to visit. i.e. the north and south Cornish coast, Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. Railway Cottage, right on Launceston Steam Railway station, fitted the bill perfectly. The cottage was clean, warm, cosy and well equipped and a delicious cream tea was waiting for us on arrival. Our host, Kay, welcomed us soon after arrival and made sure we were happy and that everything was to our satisfaction. Although the railway was closed for the winter, Kay and her husband Nigel (who jointly own the railway) invited us for a footplate ride on one of their steam engines down to Newmills on our last day at the cottage and followed this with an escorted viewing of their workshops and museum. They are enthusiastic about the railway and their achievements and love showing it to their guests. To conclude, this was an ideal cottage in an ideal location with ideal hosts and if you love steam railways then this is the place for you.
