This Grade II listed cottage is attached to the owner's home in the village of Langore, and can sleep two people.

Carpenters Cottage is a Grade II listed cottage in the village of Langore near Launceston, attached to the owner's home where wagons were made. The cottage sleeps two people and has one double bedroom (zip/link can be twin on request) with en-suite shower. Also in the cottage are a kitchen and a sitting room with dining area. Outside is off road parking for two cars, a front patio with furniture and a rear lawned garden with furniture. Situated on the Devon and Cornwall border, Carpenters Cottage is a lovely romantic base all year found.


stairs were difficult
The stairs in the cottage are uneven and crooked. I found them difficult to use ( I do not normally have problems with stairs). This detail was not included in the property description and I think that it should be, so that prospective tenants can make an informed decision before booking. Sticking a sign on them saying "TAKE CARE ANCIENT STAIRS" is not adequate. The bedroom floor is very uneven, with a pronounced slope. Again, this should be mentioned in the property description.

This was our second visit to this property and will not be our last. Everything is perfect. The owners are charming, the place exudes peace and tranquillity and the area is beautiful. There is nothing to dislike, just enjoy.
Mr Edmondson

I can say that this was one of the best turned out decorated and equipped we have been to. In an excellent position for both north and south Cornwall as well as Dart and Bodmin moors. The Cottage was very warm and cosy. We particularly enjoyed the TV in the bedroom, handy parking and quiet village.
Mr Gill

The cottage was first class everything you could possibly want, the owners were so helpful. It was a privilege to use this wonderful cottage.
Mr Terry

The Cottage was wonderful and the owners where very helpful. The Cottage was exceptional, well equipped with everything you could need. The location was superb and Cornwall as a county was fantastic.
