Lake View is in the Cornish village of Millbrook; a sleepy spot in an Area Outstanding Natural Beauty it is home to a pub and convenience store but the real attraction is the wonderful countryside and water based activities nearby.

River cruises can be enjoyed from the quay here or even a spot of canoeing with hire available at Calstock.

Surrounded by water on three sides, Millbrook looks across the Tamar to Plymouth which can be reached by car ferry from nearby Torpoint or on the passenger ferry from the Cremyll Quay.

About the location


Plymouth 6 miles; Liskeard 14 miles.

Saltash is dominated by the magnificent Tamar Bridge, Brunel’s masterpiece of engineering taking people from Devon to Cornwall across the Tamar River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Saltash retains much of its old Cornish charm with narrow streets rising steeply from the banks of the river, and plenty of shops and interesting inns. From the old quayside there are river trips up stream to Calstock, a pretty village with white cottages on a steep hillside. Here, the 120 foot giant 11-arched Calstock Railway Viaduct towers above the River Tamar and carries one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines down to the coast. Saltash offers some beautiful walks along the Tamar, and is only a five minute drive from Plymouth, with a plenty to occupy visitors including the historic Barbican quayside area with cafes, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium and several theatres. A perfect base for exploring the area along the beautiful River Tamar.
