Location: Tremaine is a small village in east Cornwall 10 miles northwest of the historic market town of Launceston. Launceston sits right on the Cornwall/Devon border offering good access to the Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor. The town is famous for the castle which dates back to medieval times and dominates the landscape sitting proudly at the highest point.
Launceston benefits from facilities including several supermarkets, schools and well-regarded local butchers, bakers and greengrocers. Launceston also plays host to the Launceston Butter Market which is held on the 1st Saturday of every month from March to December in the town square. The market is an excellent place to browse the stalls and purchase local produce, gifts and cards whilst the Town Band plays creating a relaxing atmosphere in an historic setting.
From Launceston, Plymouth is within easy reach via the A388 (approx 26 miles) whilst the A30 trunk road offers good access west to Truro (approx 47 miles) and east to Exeter (approx 41 miles). The nearest mainline train stations can be found in Gunnislake and Liskeard, being approximately 16 and 20 miles respectively from Launceston.
