North Hill is a conservation village lying half-way between Launceston and Liskeard (located here). It is perfectly situated for visits to both north and south coasts, and more widely into Cornwall and Devon.
The nearest shop is in the village of Lewannick, two and a half miles to the north west. There is a thriving village community centred around the village hall. Trebartha Estate in the next-door village opens its gardens and woodland on designated dates in spring and summer.
The village is 30 minutes' drive from the beautiful north coast ports of Boscastle, Bude (learn to surf with Sandymouth Surf School), Padstow and King Arthur's Tintagel, plus miles of dramatic coastline, sandy beaches and attractive harbours. Looe, Polperro, Mevagissey and Fowey on the south coast are just as convenient to visit and enjoy. Jamaica Inn, made famous by Daphne du Maurier, is in the heart of the moor.
The towns of Launceston and Liskeard are fifteen minutes to the north and south respectively, both with historic town centres, ancient buildings, restaurants, pubs, shopping and other attractions. Launceston with its Norman castle was the original county town; it also has a steam railway. Plymouth is only slightly further away.
Cornwall's premier tourist attractions The Eden Project and The National Marine Aquarium are within easy reach.
Nearby there is a wealth of famous tors and moors, criss-crossed by hundreds of public footpaths and bridleways. Also nearby are Dartmoor National Park, Dozmary Pool, the final resting place of Excalibur, and numerous other lakes and pools offering scenic walks.
