Situation


The property lies in the small rural hamlet of Downinney on the outskirts of the small village of Warbstow with its thriving village community and well respected primary school. The town of Camelford is some eight miles from the property with supermarkets, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgery. The small village of Wainhouse Corner is some four miles distant with its post office / general store catering for day to day needs, well respected public house and garage / filling station. The former market town of Launceston, known as The Gateway to Cornwall, is some nine miles distant with a comprehensive range of shopping facilities including a 24 hour supermarket, fully equipped leisure centre, two testing 18 hole golf courses and access to the vital A30 trunk road. The A30 links the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and well respected international airport. The majestic North Cornish coast can be accessed some five miles distant from the property with its extensive sandy beaches and cliff walks and the A39 Atlantic Highway allows easy exploration of this fantastic stretch of Cornwall from Wadebridge to Barnstaple.
