Tresmeer Station sits on the section of Launceston to Padstow railway line which was closed under the Beeching cuts of the early 1960’s.  The property has retained its inherent character with substantial three reception (one reception has an en suite WC and has been used as a 4th bedroom) three bedroom former Station Masters family house.   The waiting room and associated offices provides an adjoining annex unit ideal for holiday letting or

Splatt is a tranquil village at the heart of North Cornwall with rolling farmland in all directions. The village does not experience a great deal of through traffic and thereby provides a safe environment for the family.  

To the north the stunning Cornish coastline offers exceptional stretches of National Trust cliff scenery with popular sandy 
surfing beaches and quaint former fishing villages including Boscastle, Tintagel, Bossiney, Strangles, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay. 

To the southwest are the wide open spaces of Bodmin Moor ideal for walking and riding and to the east is Dartmoor National Park.  Running southwards is the hidden beauty of the Tamar Valley steeped in 18th Century mining history and renowned for Salmon fishing.  The Tamar runs out into Plymouth Sound on the south coast with all its yachting facilities. 

Launceston (some 8 miles) provides a full range of social, commercial and shopping facilities.  Beyond Exeter (a further 42 miles) provides intercity rail link, M5 motorway and international airport.  Plymouth to the south (35 miles) provides continental ferry port and intercity rail link.
