Property description

Situation Situated in the heart of this extremely desireable village.

The real beauty of Altarnun is that it is unspoilt and has a wealth of stone fronted cottages. It has one of Cornwall's very few village greens and has won 'Best Kept Village' on numerous occasions. The parish in area is the largest in Cornwall, occupying over 15,000 acres and nestles in the valley of Penpont Water. A tributary of the River Inny runs through the village, crossed by a 15th Century pack horse bridge. The parish Church of St Nonna sits peacefully beside the river, also known as the 'Cathedral of the Moor', built largely in the 15th Century and supporting a tower 109ft high. Public Houses can be found at both Five Lanes, 'The Kings Head' and on the edge of Altarnun, 'The Rising Sun'. The village also boasts a Post Office/general store and Community Primary School, all within walking distance of the property.

Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

Access to Plymouth, Exeter, Truro via road are all within an hour's travelling time. The city of Plymouth offers sea and rail links being approximately 29 miles from Launceston. The city of Exeter has rail links and an international airport being approximately 40 miles from Launceston.
