Great little cottages, had everything you would want including a little courtyard plus it the way it was decorated took you back in time. The hosts Louise and Rob were great and generous. We will be back

Excellent location, fantastic cottage for couples, we were provided with more than enough breakfast provisons. Laundry facilities were 100% too.We stayed in the irish cottage twice, it had a spa too. We started our holiday at Alices and returned there two weeks later before flying home. Ziggy and Thomas the cat were very friendly too. Off street outside cottage parking... More

We loved our three-day stay in these cozy, quaint and comfortable cottages.Located in a quiet residential area, but only a 10-minute drive from town center, we found the bed very comfortable, the claw foot bath tub with salts and bubbles most relaxing, and the breakfasts sustaining for our daily adventures in the Cataract Gorge, hiking Dove Lake, and Tamar river...

We stayed here for 2 nights and the accommodation was great. We were provided with a basket of goodies for our breakfasts over the 2 days. The room was decorated to suite the name of the suite. We stayed in the Boudoir Room which is cute and has a spa at one end. There was plenty of room for us... More

We stayed in one of the "shambles" cottages, consisting of a kitchen, lounge, bedroom and bathroom. These are tiny cottages lovingly restored and furnished according to theme. Our Scottish cottage had books by Scottish authors,tartan, paintings of Robbie Burns and more. They are a very short walk to cafes, pubs and the city centre. Launceston is known for its heritage...

we stayed two nights in the Welsh Cottage in January 2015. It was like spending time in a cross between an antique shop and grandma's house. If you are the type who prefers modern all white décor this place is not for you. Ourcottage had a huge 4 poster bed, massive spa bath, lovely fireplace (not enough kindling though for... More

We stayed there the first night we flew into Launceston and also for 2 days on returning to Launceston at the end of our holiday, where we felt like we were coming home it was that lovely a place. To make it even better it is such an easy place to find when driving from the airport. It is also... More

I knowingly squeezed our family of four in the English Cottage and it turned out to be a wonderful stay. I loved every single bit of the old world charm. You could tell the detailed and careful decoration. It brings to you back to the yesteryears. The hosts were friendly and helpful. They had a few cats outside the garden.... More

Booked the stand-alone Aphrodites cottage for 3 nights which is comfy and well-equipped with living room,dining room, kitchen and one bedroom. Very good for our own private moment. You could couch in the living room and waste your time over at Launceston. That's how comfy the cottage is. Get discount if you book for 3 nights or more. Nothing to... More
