Launceston is on the Cornwall and Devon border within the picturesque Tamar Valley and is the gateway into Cornwall with the A30 passing just to the side of the town.
This is an old town with a lot of character, independent shops, narrow streets and Launceston castle.
Launceston is a convenient location for Cornwall's North and Sout coasts, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.
