Launceston itself offers a variety of shops of which some are old, established, family firms. The A30 road which runs by Launceston makes it easy to go further down into Cornwall and up into Devon.

A wide variety of houses and sites are available for purchase, both in the town and the surrounding villages, to suit every taste. Newcomers can be assured of the same friendly welcome that awaits the holiday visitor and the district is very suitable for those wishing to retire in restful surroundings.
