Our holiday cottages in Boyton are scattered about this small, rural community in the Tamar Valley, northern Cornwall. It's a picturesque region of wooded glens and valleys close to the Devon border, so Boyton cottage holidaymakers can discover the many delights of Bodmin and Dartmoor National Parks, west Devon and a generous chunk of Cornwall.
For everyday provisions, holiday souvenirs, meals out etc, the traditional market town of Launceston lies five miles to the south. Georgian buildings line its elegant streets and market square. You'll also find an ancient castle, golf course and steam railway offering excursions into the country. Another memorable daytrip is to the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre, where you can meet not only otters but also owls, fallow deer, Scottish wild cats, pheasants and other interesting creatures. Bring a picnic or head to the tearoom for a slice of something sticky and sweet.
Depending on when you plan your cottage holiday to Boyton, check the calendar for the biannual Cornwall & Devon Countryman's Fair held at the Werrington Park Estate and featuring displays, demos, parades and other country-based activities - great for a family day out!
