Ridgegrove Farm enjoys a delightful position within the attractive rural Kensey Valley. The farm is conveniently located just outside Launceston and 1.5 miles from the Launceston A30 junction, yet in a very peaceful and private position.
At Launceston there is access to a comprehensive range of shopping facilities including supermarkets, wide range of shops, banks, professional services, agricultural suppliers, veterinary surgeries, doctors, and dentists, together with a leisure centre, two testing 18 hole golf courses and numerous sports and social clubs.
There are some of the country's best surfing beaches just 17 miles away to the west. As well as sandy beaches there are cliff top walks along the rugged North Cornish coastline and excellent opportunities to sail, gig row and fish.
Dartmoor National Park lies 11 miles to the SE and again offers excellent walking and outdoor pursuit opportunities. The A30 trunk road connects the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter and provides dual carriageway access to the National Motorway Network at Exeter.DESCRIPTION
