Launceston Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouses in Launceston, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location Yet Near Main Roads For Easy Access To Beaches, Moors And Towns.

Cullacott is a Grade 1 listed medieval Hall House situated in peaceful countryside near the Devon and Cornwall border. It is situated in a cobbled courtyard on a small working farm which has been in the family for 5 generations and commands splendid panoramic views over the Ottery Valley. The restoration of the property jointly won the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors' National Building Conservation award for best restored house. Its sensitive restoration has ensured the house has preserved its basic simplicity and yet great care has been taken to provide every comfort for the visitor. There are two self-contained units, the Longhouse and the Tudor Wing, both with entrances onto the cobbled courtyard and with a large garden and sunny terrace overlooking the fields running down to the river.

Details for The Tudor Wing Sleeps 5 (2 Bedrooms) 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 1 Bathroom

Sleeps 5. 2 bedroom farmhouse. The Tudor Wing is the 'modern extension' built in 1579, a fact carved in granite on the lintel of the main window in the parlour. It has very large spacious and airy rooms and contained the grand 'withdrawing' rooms and main bedroom when built. The bedrooms are reached by a wide slate turret staircase - one could almost imagine Rapunzel waiting for her Prince at the top! The twin room is accessed through the main bedroom. The bathroom is downstairs. The Tudor wing sleeps a maximum of 5 with a double and single bed in the large family room and twin beds in the other room which boasts a garde robe (an early toilet) now converted into a wardrobe. Although it will sleep 5 it is equally suitable for 2 people and a discount is given for couples staying there. It is a quiet, peaceful, off the beaten track place for a romantic break!

Suitability:

About Mary Cole

My family have lived at Cullacott Farm for over 100 years so we know every crook and cranny of the houses and of the surrounding land. We live on site so are available at all times to help guests in whatever way we can. We love the area in which we live and are eager for our guests to get the most out of their holiday with us by not only offering a unique building to stay in but also by using our local knowledge to inform them of events happening locally and interesting things to do to suit all tastes.

Mary Cole purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Why Mary Cole chose North Cornwall

As mentioned in my profile, my family have lived at Cullacott Farm for over 100 years.

It is situated on the Southern side of the beautiful river Ottery valley with fantastic views of the countryside.

It is in an ideal position for exploring both Devon and Cornwall, with Launceston the ancient capital of Cornwall just 3 miles away.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Cullacott farmhouse is a Grade 1 listed medieval Hall House on a small working farm and provides stunning unique self catering holiday accommodation. There are big airy rooms with huge open fireplaces, slate floors downstairs and polished wooden floors upstairs, a quirky maze of rooms and staircases with a medieval Great Hall in which to dine, maybe by candlelight, imagining oneself to be the Lord of the Manor or his Lady wife. Around every corner there is an historic feature yet the property is well equipped for 21st century living.

Enjoy the freedom to roam the farmland and surrounding area with walks along our lanes to the river or the woods taking in the abundance of wildlife.

Step back in time for a week

  • 5 of 5

One of our daughters chose the Tudor wing for us to stay in for our week in Cornwall. We did a lot of travelling around Devon & Cornwall - the location near Launceton is quite central.

We appreciated the accommodation: quiet, clean, secure but also historic. Mary (the owner) gave us a tour and introduction to the history of the place. She was attentive throughout our stay. There is all you need for a quiet week; do note that there is no internet access but we felt we could have a week without the internet. By the way the mobile phone signal is weak & erratic so don't hope for networking in this location!

Mind your head on the low lintels! Take care with those stairs, especially if you have to go down to the bathroom in the night.

Lovely to see the sparrows and house martins just outside.

One of our daughters can play the piano so we enjoyed her playing the harmonium.

Our youngest still misses Bruno (the owners' dog).

Characterful, charming and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Can't fault this gem of a place. We loved the sense of history and the peace and tranquility of its location despite being only a short drive from the A30. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and all needs were adequately catered for. We would highly recommend a stay and will hope to one day return.

A unique property 5 mins drive from launceston, ideally situated to explore the north coast

  • 4 of 5

We visited the tudor wing in spring with our young kids and their grandparents, & since the building has no central heating, being grade1 listed etc, they found it very cold on arrival. There was half a bag of wood left by the fire but no matches or lighter etc.

once the fire was lit (with paper lit from the oven grill) it warmed up a bit, but this is a big house. The storage heaters were dwarved by the property and really did little to cut through the chill.

We were a bit put out by the (upstairs) twin bedroom having no route to the (downstairs) bathroom other than through the master bedroom too.

In all, our arrival felt a bit like a cameo in Withnail and I.

However once we'd adapted our 21st century expectations we really did enjoy the place.

It's a huge space, from the working melodian in the lounge (apologies to the neighbours for the medieval starwars medley) to the working farm on site. Our daughter would never have witnessed ewes giving birth to lambs at a travel lodge.

The kitchen was fully modern, & well equipped.

All the rooms had what they needed and more, including a lovely big dining table in the lounge and a giant victorian dolls house in the master bedroom.

The boiler worked very well so with good use of the boost button it was possible to warm up with lovely hot bath.

The beds were all very comfortable.

John and Mary originally aimed to charge us extra for the extra person (our 10mnth old son) but in the end they didn't, perhaps because we purchased 2 extra sacks of logs. They even left us a perfectly baked lemon drizzle cake in the kitchen on arrival.

In all our stay was memorable, and despite our somewhat clunky adapting period we really loved it in the end, & will be going back if we can.

I wouldn't recommend staying here if you expect standard stop gap accommodation, since this place will demand to be the main event.

If you seek a unique and memorable holiday however, you'd struggle to beat it. Just remember, if its not in summer bring extra blankets!

Owner's Response: We are grateful for such a detailed review and appreciate the time and effort taken to write it. We work within the confines of our very special Grade 1 listed building so cannot change the layout of the rooms but will endeavour to ensure guests are aware of this and of the downstairs bathroom. A fire is always laid in with enough wood for the first day and matches left nearby. On this occasion we are sorry to have missed the lack of matches but as we live on site would have provided a replacement box had we been asked. The price issue was nothing whatsoever to do with the number of guests staying in the property. It was because the amount was incorrectly calculated initially and was not noticed by us until too late and emailed our guests to explain this. We had hoped to recoup the additional amount personally before our guests left the premises but in the interests of customer relations decided not to pursue the matter.

Adults could simply sit quietly watching for otters, kingfishers, damsel flies or dragon flies, even the odd heron which local villagers guard their pond fish from. Guests can walk through our traffic free private lane to the nearby Otter Park where there are otters, varieties of deer, owls and other little animals to see.
