Holiday Cottages in Cornwall

Launceston, an old town with a compact shopping centre, sited at a major road junction, which was once the county capital.

The town has a tourist information centre in Market Street.

Ideal if you like churches, try St Mary Magdalene for it's 16th century granite carving, St Thomas's for the largest font in Cornwall, and St Stephen-by-Launceston, 1.5 miles north by the Golf Club, as this church was the mother church of the town.
