    “We had a great stay at 20 Tamar Cottages.”

    Lovely area with lots to do. The cottage itself was fantastic, extremely clean and beautifully decorated with many personal touches, and everything we needed in the kitchen! The welcome basket of wine and biscuits was a lovely touch along with a note from the owner. Unfortunately the note also informed us that we would be unable to use the balcony, which was a real shame, especially as the weather was warm, and something we feel we should have been informed about long before our arrival as the ...

    Lovely area with lots to do. The cottage itself was fantastic, extremely clean and beautifully decorated with many personal touches, and everything we needed in the kitchen! The welcome basket of wine and biscuits was a lovely touch along with a note from the owner. Unfortunately the note also informed us that we would be unable to use the balcony, which was a real shame, especially as the weather was warm, and something we feel we should have been informed about long before our arrival as the issue was a safety one (wood rot in the handrail that had clearly been there a while). We also felt the description of the cottage implies a bathroom with a toilet and an additional toilet, which is not the case, and there are no locks on the bathroom or toilet doors!! Whilst this may not bother some people not everyone would be happy with this! Our only other difficulty was drying washing - there was only a single airer which made drying washing for 4 adults and a 6 month old baby problematic! An outdoor washing line or use of a drier would have been very much appreciated, like some of the other cottages on the site have. However, a lovely holiday was had by us all in spite of the few points mentioned.

The property

This reverse-level home, 20 Tamar Cottages, is located on Honicombe Park in the market town of Callington, Cornwall.

The cottage is the perfect home base for a family wishing to enjoy both the country and the shore.

It can accommodate six guests, has an open-plan living layout with a private balcony overlooking the community grounds and flexible sleeping configurations.

To get to your social hub, take the stairs up to the first floor; there, you may relax and watch one of the numerous DVDs on hand, cook and eat meals together, and have a cup of tea while looking out over the lush green lawn at the back of your home.

Enjoy three tastefully decorated bedrooms on the ground floor, including a single room (put-me-up bed available on request) with direct access to your private patio filled with vibrant flowers and two double rooms, one of which has a Smart TV.

The cottage comes complete with a bathroom that is readily accessible to all bedrooms.

Set off towards Callington and the other villages.

The Tamar Valley Donkey Park, great for kids and adults alike, the 25 km of forest trails at the Tamar Trails Centre, suitable for walkers and bikers to explore, and the expansive Tamar Valley AONB, with a variety of hiking trails to choose from, are all nearby.

You can drive to the town of Tavistock to visit the local museum, take a leisurely stroll along the River Tavy, or, if you're a golf enthusiast, play some friendly competition on the 18-hole course.

The National Marine Aquarium, The Mayflower Museum, which covers maritime history beginning in 1620, and Royal Citadel, a 17th century fortress on the Devonshire coastline that is a must-visit for history buffs, are just a few of the many attractions in Plymouth that can be easily reached from 20 Tamar Cottages.

With 20 Tamar Cottages as your home base, explore Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

CALLINGTON

Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles; Plymouth 14.6 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.
