Holiday Rental Description

Holiday home
Orchard End is a cottage in the village of Boyton, attached to the owners' Cornish farmhouse in an idyllic rural setting alongside the magnificent river Tamar, just 5.5 miles from Launceston in East Cornwall and can sleep five people. This all ground floor cottage has a double bedroom with pull-out single, a twin bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburner. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and a private, lawned garden with furniture. With fishing nearby and the opportunity to take part in some art and photography classes, Orchard End is an ideal holiday base.

Accomodation Details
All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double with pull-out single, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and separate WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with woodburner.

Launceston is situated on the Devon and Cornwall border and is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle which sits high above the town. Launceston also offers wonderful architecture including exquisite Georgian buildings. Just three miles away is the Tamar Otter Park and taking a trip on the steam train from Launceston through the beautiful Kensey Valley on a 5 mile round trip is essential. Other places to visit are the stunning Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor and with delightful seaside towns nearby, Launceston is a perfect base all year round.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

When we arrived, the owners gave a friendly welcome and we walked into a lovely clean cottafe, with fresh picked flowers and an amazing welcome basket of goodies, a lovely touch that set the high standard of expectations, which we where not disappointed (which we enjoyed biscuits and chocolate throughout our stay). Large rooms, very clean and homely. Heaters when cold or even better enjoy the wood burner fire. Lovely Garden and fields to walk round, down to the river and back a good 30-40min walk. The owners have thought of everything to make our stay as welcoming as possible, from kitchen utils, foil, dish cloths to tea, coffee and sugar (saving us that dash to shops for the 1st shop) and a chance of a cuppa on arrival. Quiet days in, cupboard full of games when it rained. Absolutely loved the place. Only downside: wifi is intermittent, so if you have children or rely on it for searching your next days visits, can be annoying. Wifi speed is fast but internet access is intermittent. Would we stay again - absolutely without a doubt. This stay has set a high standard for others to follow.

A lovely spotless cottage with large rooms and everything you need for a quiet and peaceful week away. The Gardens and the scenery views from the windows are fabulous. Very well looked after with an array of wild birds constantly swooping in on the feeders. There is a large Woodburner in the lounge that's very easy to use and a basket of logs are provided. Easy off road parking. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone. Situated on a working farm and far away from the madding crowds. A truly fabulous week away.

This place is perfect! The setting is simply beautiful, the location is quite easy to find to so close to amazing places to visit. I strongly recommend this place for a base to come back to whilst exploring Cornwall/Devon. Go to Tintagel Castle/Merlin's Cave, Dewerstone Woods, St Necturns Glen, Lanhydrock, etc. and bring back some groceries on the way for a nice home cooked meal. Note that the kitchen is fully kitted with cooking instruments and such!

We had a lovely holiday using Orchard End as our base.. We enjoyed the beaches at Bude and also explored places like the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan as these were only an hour away. Cottage was as listed. Clean and spacious, kitchen well equipped. The rest of it was more sparse, probably due to Covid restrictions, but didn't affect our holiday experience.

Good and very quiet and peaceful location, clean and roomy accommodation with lovely views and surrounding.. Any issues were addressed quickly, light bulb changed, tap that stopped working fixed. Would be more that happy to stay again if in the Cornwall Devon boulder area.

Wonderful location, fabulous grounds and farmland, great views and countryside all around.. Kitchen utensils & crockery exactly what we needed; cosy and well heated; quiet and peaceful, friendly and approachable hosts. Wifi is not very good but it did work with one or two short breaks (which is just part of being in this location I expect) and we did have some phone signal.

An excellent cottage.. It was well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We liked the flowers and goodies provided at the start of the holiday! The cottage is very well situated for local attractions. We would certainly recommend and hope to go back ourselves again.

If you are looking for a quiet and beautiful spot in the country after a day of touring, this is the place for you.. Lots of birds, beautiful garden, farmers fields and local roads to walk. All in all a terrific stay. We would definitely choose Orchard End for another visit.

This was our second visit so we knew what to expect and wasn’t disappointed.. Lovely place, quiet and well situated for traveling to different places. Bude beach was a winner with the kids too and not too far to reach either. Highly recommended

Cottage very well equipped, everything you could need & more, clean & tidy and comfortable, exactly like home.. The 'personal touch' shone through. Beautiful area, scenery and gardens & views to wake up to. Very relaxing. Photos don't do justice. Owners very welcoming & friendly.Highly recommend Orchard Cottage. Didn't want to come home!Would love to go back there again.

Superior accommodation unspoiled views.. would recommend this as a place to stay. can't wait to go back.
Mrs Gould

Cottage was peaceful, clean, and well equipped with wonderful views.. The owners were friendly and on hand in case of any problems. Our only one was that at first we couldn't get Wi-Fi but it was soon sorted. If you didn't fancy going far there's a lovely walk down to the river, or we found a stroll round the village after supper enjoyable - the church has a wonderful graveyard with stones going back to the 1700s. There's so much to do quite close. Both Dartmoor and Bodmin, but the beaches are also not far - although we were there for Moor walking really so didn't get to the coast. We did visit the Otter Sanctuary and Davidstow Airfield Museum, both we would highly recommend. Our four night stay was just perfect and we would highly recommend the property. OK is this too good to be true? Here we go then I've found a moan ....... The very hard British Isles Jigsaw has a corner piece missing!!!!!!!
