Lanhydrock House (above) is one of Cornwall's grandest houses set in a glorious landscape of gardens, parkland and woods overlooking the valley of the River Fowey. The house dates back to the 17th Century including the magnificent Long Gallery with its extraordinary plaster ceiling depicting scenes from the Old Testament.

Launceston Steam Railway (above) links the historic town with the hamlet of Newmills. Travelling through glorious countryside your train is hauled by veteran locomotives built in the 1880's and 1890's by the Hunslet Engine Company of Leeds. They worked on the slate carrying lines high in the mountains of North Wales.

Attractions within easy reach of Oakside

Cornwall offers a huge number and variety of attractions: from its legendary beaches to the world-class Eden Project; from its romantically-wild moorland to celebrity-run restaurants. But here’s just a few of the many places to visit just within a few miles of Oakside.

 
 

Trethorne Golf Course (right) creates unique challenges demanding the skills of power, placement and fine judgement upon the discerning golfer.
The 18 holes are in a pleasant parkland setting with good views of the Cornish country side and distant views of rural Cornwall, magnificent panoramic views overlooking Launceston's Farm lands.

Padstow (left) is an example of what Cornwall does best - it's a working port which wears a holiday hat. Hotels, guest houses and holiday cottages are never more than a seagull's cry from the waters edge. Nestling on the beautiful Camel Estuary Padstow offers unrivalled holiday opportunities. The Town with its colourful harbour surrounded by pastel-washed medieval houses is an attraction in itself.

First farmed over 4000 years ago by bronze age settlers Bodmin Moor (left) is of one the last great unspoilt areas in the South West and much of its prehistoric and medieval past remains untouched by the passing of the centuries.
The Moor is dominated by dramatic granite tors which tower over the sweeping expanses of open moorland. Marshes and bogs on the high moor drain into shallow moorland valleys before the rivers cross onto softer shales around the Moor and carve themselves deep river valleys, providing shelter for rich, damp oak woodland.
