Launceston is a historic market town situated in North Cornwall right on the Cornwall/Devon border offering good access to the Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor. The town is famous for the castle which dates back to medieval times and dominates the landscape sitting proudly at the highest point.

Launceston benefits from facilities including several supermarkets, schools and well-regarded local butchers and bakers. Items of interest include the castle itself which is maintained by English Heritage with a visit providing historical information and a fantastic view across the town. There is also the Lawrence House Museum which is run by the National Trust and offers a ‘step back in time’ set in an 18th century Georgian town house.

In terms of industry, the town offers a bustling centre and on the outskirts are two industrial estates at Pennygillam and Newport. Launceston and the surrounding areas offer a fine array of properties from large rural estates, historical cottages and town houses to numerous modern developments.

From Launceston, Plymouth is within easy reach via the A388 (approx 26 miles) whilst the A30 trunk road offers good access west to Truro (approx 47 miles) and east to Exeter (approx 41 miles). The nearest mainline train stations can be found in Gunnislake and Liskeard, being approximately 16 and 20 miles respectively from Launceston.

Total Floor Area of Retail Units 
287.5 sq m / 3092 sq ft

Site Location 
The site location offers a balance of commercial and residential elements being located within 60 metres of the town centre, very close to the local multi storey car park and enjoying unhindered views to the historic castle opposite. Highly visible commercial units from one of the main thoroughfares in Launceston.

The current requirements within Launceston for new homes are being met to a certain extent by the new developments on the edge of the town. However these developments do not satisfy the need for a large number of new buyers, due to price, that this project would be able to service.

The North Coast is easily accessible from Launceston and includes numerous beaches and towns including Bude, Widemouth Bay and Crackington Haven. The North Coast also offers numerous restaurants and public houses with fantastic settings alongside footpaths enjoying the panoramic views of the coastline and sea.
