Stay in a cottage at the end of a platform on a narrow gauge railway! In a quite unique position, Railway Cottage is a well presented cottage at the end of the platform of Launceston Steam Railway. Brilliant for the young and old and when open, you may have a number of free rides on the trains! It is a quaint property with a homely feel and great access to Launceston and, being close to the A30, link roads to Bodmin Moor, Padstow, Tintagel and all points west!
The property is positioned at the end of the platform for Launceston Steam Railway which is run by the owners. If you rent Railway Cottage, during the season, when the LSR is open (details can be found on their website at LauncestonSteam Railway you will be allowed to take a number of free rides on the train, what better way to keep the young (or old!) railway enthusiast amused than getting to grips with some beautifully restored 2'0" gauge Victorian engines.
