Why move to Launceston? Set amidst the rolling green Cornish countryside, Launceston is known as the gateway to the county and sits on the Devon border. The town’s skyline is dominated by the ruins of a Norman castle that stands high on a hillside with dramatic views over Bodmin moor and Dartmoor. The castle was a strategically important building after the Norman Conquest and its green was used for executions until the 19th century. Launceston is situated between the north and south coasts, so is convenient for beaches and the Cornish countryside. The surrounding area offers leisure for all types; facilities include two golf courses – Trethorne and Launceston – and Roadford Lake Country Park where visitors can fish for trout, sail, windsurf, cycle, row, kayak and camp. Launceston has a busy pedestrianised shopping centre with plenty of big names alongside quirky independent shops. Out of town there is a big Tesco, Argos and Pets at Home. There are plenty of places to eat out in Launceston, including the award-wining Launceston Fryer, the Countryman Inn at Langdon Cross, the Eliot Arms at Tredadillett and the Arundell Arms Hotel at Lifton, where there are also shooting and fishing rights. A town with literary connections… Once the ancient capital of Cornwall, Launceston is steeped in history and featured prominently in Daphne du Maurier’s smuggling classic, Jamaica Inn. The inn itself sits between Launceston and Bodmin and visitors can travel back 300 years to experience something of the romance, folklore and villainy associated with this historic coaching inn and the area. Great local schools Launceston has some great schools including the ‘good’ Ofsted-rated Launceston College for children aged 11 to 18. Windmill Hill Academy is a ‘good’ primary school and the ‘outstanding’ St Stephen’s Academy is a primary school with an excellent special needs centre.
