| Events in Virginstow | 10 Places to Stay

Virginstow is a small village set within a patchwork of green countryside in Devon, home to just over a hundred people. Situated just a few miles from Launceston in Cornwall and the wild dramatic Moorland of Dartmoor National Park, which will put smiles on the faces of walkers and artists, lovers of history can explore Launceston Motte and Bailey Castle, which stands high on a hill and will reverse the hands of time in an instant. Or why not step onto the Boardwalk at Dunsdon Farm Nature Reserve where wild flowers, meadow thistle, and grasses mix with the wild terrain and fascinating wildlife. Or maybe the chance to experience the golden age of steam travel will tempt a visit to Launceston Steam Railway for a journey to remember, or be prepared to be amazed at Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre which has the most breathtaking exhibits, and is home to the National Fairground Collection. For Georgian splendour Lawrence House Museum has intriguing exhibits spread over three floors. Or if Mother Natureí splendour is more for you it has to be the Lydford Gorge where the dazzling Waterfall thunders some 90í into a steep sided river gorge, woodland trails and unrivalled beauty, what more could be wished for.
