Coombe House Liskeard is a five minute walk from Coombe railway station, or a thirty minute walk from the centre of the town. Public transport covers the whole of the town, with a good bus, taxi and rail service. Looe is half an hour away, with Bodmin moor a taxi or bus journey from the home.
Liskeard is a thriving market town in the heart of South East Cornwall. The centre of the town is populated with a range of shops, from individual arts and books stores to fashion retailers. Major chains are represented with national chemists and supermarkets, while an out of town shopping centre includes the usual and recognisable brands.
An active town museum is worth a visit, and the tourist information centre has information on lots to do and explore in the area. Close to the beauty of Bodmin moor and a short car journey to the coast, Liskeard is a hub for South East Cornwall.
All the major religions are catered for in the town, with St Martin’s Church, (1428) the focal point of the town’s landscape.
The cities of Truro and Plymouth are easily reachable by train or bus, with Liskeard served well by public transport and being just off the major A38 trunk road.
