    On arrival at Halfpenny Cottage we were met with the owners who were just a delight, very warm and welcoming, we were made at home within minutes of stepping through the door. This is a 5 Star cottage with 5+ star owners who go above and beyond to welcome and help in any way if you do have an issue. Little touches like tea, coffee and sugar when you arrive, and soap on every sink unit add to the joy of being here. Oh and as a welcome, a fresh handmade cake was made for us which was delicious and very moreish. The accommodation is spacious and super clean, two bathrooms a godsend and a well equipped kitchen makes this a home from home. Space for two cars ... fantastic. The gardens to this property are beautiful and a joy to sit in, late evening all one can here is bird song. The view from the balcony is just beautiful. The property has an adjacent outdoor pool which guests have access to, and is private and secluded, and when the sun is out a real sun trap. A great place for a family holiday and a retreat from the rat race . Wifi is also included which was a real bonus especially for the teenage granddaughter. I cannot recommend this place enough its just beautiful and Harrowbarrow is far from the madding crowd, but within easy reach to everything you want. A great base for a Cornish adventure.

The property

Halfpenny Cottage is set amongst charming gardens in the Cornish village of Harrowbarrow in the Tamar Valley AONB.

With a beautiful outdoor area and much of Cornwall to be discovered nearby, this lovely countryside cottage can be enjoyed by couples, families and friends alike.

A modern, open-plan living area graces the ground floor, where you can do everything from sitting and unwinding on the sofa in front of the TV and electric fire to rustling up a delicious home-cooked meal in the fresh, well-appointed kitchen.

This floor also houses two of the immaculate bedrooms and a glistening family shower room, allowing you to get ready for your day in a stylish fashion.

A carpeted staircase brings you to the first floor, set comfortably under the sloping ceiling, where you will find a further double bedroom and shower room, completing the interior of the property.

The gardens at Halfpenny Cottage are its finest feature; take your pick of peaceful spots to unwind in, whether it be relaxing on the well-kept lawn, swimming in your private heated pool, or even spending some time watching the birds in the tranquil wildlife garden.

In the surrounding area, you can visit the popular market town of Tavistock, its variety of amenities and charming architecture make it a wonderful day out.

If a day by the beach is what you desire, the popular port city of Plymouth is accessible by car and makes for a fun-packed trip.

About the location


Tavistock 5 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

Harrowbarrow, set in the AONB of the Tamar Valley, is one of many small rural villages close to the steeply wooded banks of the River Tamar, which forms the border between Cornwall and Devon. There is a selection of village pubs and local shops around Harrowbarrow, with more amenities on offer in the town of Callington. Harrowbarrow lies close to the Tamar Valley Railway, a scenic 14-mile route with regular trains taking in wonderful views of quiet countryside, Plymouth’s Naval Dockyard and the Tamar estuary. The pannier town of Tavistock sits on the edge of Dartmoor, and offers a market, pubs and eateries, while the waterfront city of Plymouth offers history and character in abundance. Visit NT Cotehele House and Gardens, take in a festival in Calstock, challenge your handicap with a round of golf at St Mellion or spend the day on the beach at Looe.
