Near the head­quar­ters of Poldark Tours in Launce­s­ton, this Grade II-listed Ge­or­gian house is mo­ments away from the town’s 13th cen­tury cas­tle.

Ea­gle House, an im­pos­ing red-brick man­sion, has up to 15 bed­room suites with bath­rooms.

The 11,150 sq ft prop­erty was used as a prison for Napololeon­ic naval of­fi­cers, who are thought to be re­spon­si­ble for the French ea­gles over the gate pil­lars.

More re­cently, it was used as a ho­tel but has re­ceived plan­ning per­mis­sion to be changed back into a res­i­den­tial dwelling.

It has four re­cep­tion rooms, a con­ser­va­tory, a ter­race, a lawn and a stretch of wood­land. Agent: Knight Frank (01392 247883; knight­frank.co.uk)
