Advertising feature - Trevadlock Hall Park
Trevadlock Hall Park is just six miles from the market town of Launceston – once known as the gateway to Cornwall, and just over the border from Devon. The park enjoys breathtaking views over Bodmin Moor, a couple of miles distant, and the surrounding countryside. The local village of Lewannick, within walking distance, has a busy post office, shop, surgery, pub, village hall and a beautiful country church.
The majority of homes on seven-acre Trevadlock Park have generous plots and purpose-built garages. There is a daily bus service to Launceston and a fishmonger and mobile library call at the park.
Residents meet socially in an informal group known as the ‘crafties’ and there are several social clubs and societies for the more mature person in the nearby village of North Hill. The park’s managers, John and Norma Lansley, live on site.
As well as Bodmin Moor, the Dartmoor National Park is within easy reach, as are the seaside resorts of Bude and Looe.
