Callington Holiday Cottages
Discover the Tamar Valley with a stay in one of our Callington holiday cottages, an idyllic spot in south-east Cornwall around fourteen miles from Plymouth. A small 15th Century market town once home to a large mining community, Callington is famous for its unique Mural Trail created by professional and amateur artists. Every corner brings something new, with colourful works of art portraying Callington's past, present and future emblazoned on various walls and buildings. A Heritage Centre opens at weekends in summer showcasing local artefacts, including mining memorabilia, while other points of interest include St. Mary's Church, the Old Clink and Dupath Well House, an ornate granite building containing holy water.
Attractions near your Callington holiday rental
Stride out from your Callington holiday home to Kit Hill Country Park, where you can climb up to a wonderful viewpoint over the Tamar Valley and nearby national parks of Bodmin and Dartmoor. There's a network of way-marked trails, archaeological and mining remains, some good picnic spots for that lunch with a view and seasonal events like the Kit Hill Run in June. Other local festivals include Callington Carnival (July) and Honey Fair (October).
Travel underground by narrow-gauge train to the old copper mine at Morwellham Quay, a World Heritage Site with lots to see and do for all the family - historic port, Victorian farm, museums etc. Or glide on Shamrock, a beautifully restored barge at Cotehele Quay, part of the National Trust estate which also features a stunning Tudor mansion, cider press, formal gardens and walking trails.
