The Wagon House is a cottage in a group in Polyphant near Launceston. The cottage has a double and a single room, a shower room, a kitchen with dining area, and a sitting room with a sofa and a large feature window.

The Wagon House is well placed to enjoy walking on Bodmin Moor, surfing on the North Cornwall coast, or cycling along the Camel Trail.

From the Cornish, meaning 'Frog Pool', Polyphant is close to the convergence of the River Inny and Penpont Water and is surrounded by miles of stunning countryside. Cornwall is a very temperate region of the UK and the beaches are very popular for surfing and other water-sports. The beaches of the north coast are just 14 miles away and also bring you into close proximity to attractions such as the world-famous Eden Project and the Victorian discovery, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A few miles west of Polyphant, you can take in the rugged beauty of Bodmin Moor with its granite tors, walking opportunities and secluded moor-land villages. The Camel Route, a famous cycling and walking trail is just minutes from here.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Lovely big garden with pond, large patio & conservatory. Great for gathering for drinks/bbq if you have friends in the adjoining Shippon & Granary cottages."

"A lovely little cottage, so cosy with a beautiful quiet garden and all the amenities of home. The sun hits the little table and chairs early enough to enjoy a cup of tea first thing. We had a wonderful holiday and will no doubt return for more! Thank you for a lovely holiday."

"We found the property central to the area we wanted to visit. It was well set out and very quiet. The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked a lot for ourselves. We spent most of the time out touring as it was not far from the coast or the moors, but when at the property it was comfortable and had all we needed."

"Very relaxing with a wide range of places to visit. The sunny/warm weather certainly helped make the holiday and made it a pleasure to be out and about. Some nice touches from the owners who supplied homemade scones, jam, butter and cream on arrival."

"The owners were incredible hosts, whilst being attentive to our needs they were considerate not interfere with our holiday. The cottage was lovely and just what we needed and very central to many locations. The info pack we received was brilliant and even outlined animal friendly attractions and pubs which we found really helpful. Would definitely recommend the cottage to others for a quiet sightseeing visit."

"My husband and I stayed here for a week recently, and had a fabulous time. This lovely quiet retreat is now under new ownership, and the four houses have all been recently updated. Ours was clean, comfortable, cosy, and had all the facilities we needed. It also had a nice patio and garden which would be really useful during the nicer weather! Excellent location, close to Launceston and ideal for all the sights of Cornwall. There is also a decent pub not too far away, I would guess a mile or so. We'll be back!"
