The property

Nestled in the hamlet of Rilla Mill, Little Hamlin is a short distance from the wild granite landscape of Bodmin Moor, and within easy access of the south Cornish coastline.

Siblyback Lake is just 6 miles from the property with a 3 mile walk around the lake, a cafe and other activities to keep you busy.

Close to the Cornwall- Devon border, it makes a superb base from which to discover both counties, with tranquil creeks and rivers, beautiful woodlands and fabulous seaside resorts ready for exploration.

Coastal footpaths and inland walks are plentiful.

Golitha Falls is a nearby captivating destination, with spectacular waterfalls that weave their way through ancient oak and beech woodlands.

The fascinating prehistoric and geological sites of Bodmin Moor can be reached from Minions which is two miles away, popular among walkers for its heritage centre located in the disused engine house.

Located within a short drive are the formal gardens at the National Trust owned Lanhydrock,Cotehele and Antony House, famed for their stunning blooms.

The renowned Eden Project, whose biodomes are filled with flora and fauna from around the globe are a naturalist's paradise.

The expansive surfing beaches at Whitsand Bay, Seaton and Downderry and the scenic south west footpath are also within easy reach.

The neighbouring village of Upton Cross is home to The Sterts open air theatre offering entertainment and dining facilities.

Little Hamlin is a pretty, two storey end of terrace, cottage style property, next to the owners own residence.

Situated on a traffic free lane, the modern and welcoming accommodation has a first floor sitting room and bedroom.

Doors from the bedroom lead out to a private balcony with table and chairs for alfresco dining, and boasts scenic countryside views beyond.

The popular Manor House Inn and Restaurant is within a very short stroll and serves fine food and refreshment.

A stroll through the park with the river running through it is a relaxing way to end the day.

About the location


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.
