In 2014 Charles Causley’s house was lovingly restored to provide comfortable living accommodation. The two reception rooms have been reinstated to just how they were during Causley’s lifetime and there are many of Causley’s artefacts, furniture and artworks situated throughout the house. The house is available for rental on certain weeks.
The house is primarily used as a centre for literary activities. Alongside this the Trust has now made it available for short-term lets to those with an interest in literature and the arts; not least those seeking a quiet environment in which to study and write.
The Trust is grateful to Cornwall Council, Arts Council England, Literature Works and Launceston Town Council and the many other donors and supporters whose funding and expertise made the restoration possible.
