The property

Tavistock 3 miles.

A well-presented, converted coachhouse, situated on a quiet family-run campsite, in the hamlet of Gulworthy near Tavistock, on the border of Devon and Cornwall in The Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The site has also been awarded a David Bellamy silver award for conservation and is considered "bee-friendly". This lovely cottage is close to historic Morwhellam Quay, and within a 10 minute drive of the popular pannier town of Tavistock, making it an ideal base for friends and families to explore this lovely part of the country.

This delightful cottage is set all on the ground floor and has underfloor heating throughout, with the electricity supply and hot water supplemented by solar panels.

Having oak floors and exposed stone walls, this spacious and warm cottage combines character and charm with modern furnishings.

There are two double bedrooms, both with TVs and sharing a wet room.

The open plan living area is an attractive room with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, where you can relax with friends and family.

The woodburner, and large basket of logs, will give that extra boost of heat on cooler evenings.

In the summer, you will want to spill out into the enclosed rear garden for a barbecue or to walk around the area, visiting the rare breed pigs, collecting fresh hen eggs or stroking the miniature Shetland ponies.

The owners offer an extremely warm welcome and will introduce you to their prized animals or sell some of their own tasty farm produce for you to cook in the cottage.

Morwhellam Quay is a fascinating historic village open to the public, and the Tamar Trails Centre offers a network of family trails and outdoor activities in this unique and stunning area of Devon, which is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

Tavistock has a good range of shops with some renowned restaurants and pubs, while the slopes of Dartmoor nudge the town, making the area very popular with walkers.

This stylish barn conversion offers a fabulous base to explore the Devon and Cornwall border.
