LOCATION The hamlet of Bathpool is situated in the Lynher valley on the south-east fringe of Bodmin Moor about 5 miles north-west of Callington and only 9 miles from Launceston.
Launceston benefits from facilities including several supermarkets, schools and well-regarded local butchers, bakers and greengrocers. Launceston also plays host to the Launceston Butter Market which is held on the 1st Saturday of every month from March to December in the town square. The market is an excellent place to browse the stalls and purchase local produce, gifts and cards whilst the Town Band plays creating a relaxing atmosphere in an historic setting.
Originally a Saxon settlement and mentioned in the Domesday Book as Calwetone, Callington is now a busy market town in southeast Cornwall between Dartmoor to the east and Bodmin Moor to the west and is also the home of Ginsters Cornish Pasties. Callington is conveniently located at about 7 miles north of Saltash providing good links via the Tamar Bridge to Plymouth and 9 miles south of the ancient Cornish capital and popular market town of Launceston.
Stable front door accesses directly into the kitchen. The original front porch is now used as an outside store.
