A little further afield you can visit the glorious sandy beach at Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs. Equally accessible are Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park with undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments - a rambler's dream.

Set in an enviable position on the South-Western edge of the Tamar Valley Resort, Dartmoor Lodges are ideally positioned to enjoy pleasant views, provide ample living space indoor and out and offer easy access to the various facilities on offer. Detached, well equipped and each with their own terrace, the Dartmoor lodge offers guests a comfortable and peaceful holiday, with space to relax and unwind. All lodges are ideally placed for those who fancy a more active break in Cornwall with tennis courts very nearby and the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, bar/restaurant, shop and reception a short walk via an easily navigable pathway winding through the resort. During the school holidays there is a busy programme of entertainment including quiz nights and karaoke plus sporting activities including archery, rock climbing, canoeing and abseiling (subject to seasonal opening times).

Dartmoor 1 is spacious and bright, with big windows capturing the very scenic and green landscape beyond. Where better to sit and dine around the table together, or open the patio doors and venture onto the patio with a hearty breakfast or lunchtime pasty set against this glorious country backdrop. The open-plan living space is great for socialising and creates various spaces for all the family to do their thing; watch TV, play board games, sit and read or simply relax after a day of adventure. The kitchen has lots of storage space and worktops for cooks to get creative.

About the location

CALLINGTON

Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles.

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwhellam Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
