About the location


Tavistock 5 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.

The small rural village of Gunnislake lies on the steeply wooded banks of the River Tamar. It has village pubs and a small selection of shops. Notably, the village sits at one end of the scenic Tamar Valley Railway - with regular services along the river bank to Plymouth. The area is perfect for exploring Dartmoor, the south and north coast beaches and the attractions of Cornwallís far west. Close to hand, the Dartmoor town of Tavistock with its pannier market, pubs and restaurants is a must, as well as the popular fishing village of Calstock, renowned for its crafts and festivals, while the Donkey Sanctuary and Cotehele House and Gardens (NT) are just 10 minutes away. Enjoy a round of golf at St Mellion (8 miles), explore the restored Victorian mining village at Morwhellam Quay (4 miles), search for otters and deer along the Tamar Valley footpath or take a trip to the beach and picturesque harbour at Looe (25 miles) - thereís something for everyone. For something really different why not ride the scenic Tamar Valley Railway into Plymouth and spend the day in the fabulous Marine Aquarium or strolling the historic Plymouth Hoe?

The accommodation was perfect. The owner was very warm and friendly. A great place to holiday.

Mrs Jones, London, November 2013

This property, along with the owners exceeded all expectations. I cannot praise the whole experience enough. This was my first holiday since 2005, so was not sure what to expect, but I cannot wait to return. So tranquil, all you hear is the brook nearby. Bliss! Mouse Cottage is decorated to a very high standard, and that alone is worth a weeks holiday. The owners are a joy, so kind and friendly, but never intrusive.

Mrs Peters, Ferndown, September 2013

We enjoyed staying at Mouse Cottage. The cottage was very spacious. The lounge was very comfortable, and a great place to relax. The kitchen was also very roomy having everything you could need and more besides!

Mr Briggs, Harwich, September 2013

My husband and I found Mouse Cottage to be a tranquil haven. It was extremely well equipped and comfortable. The owners were delightful and helpful. There was so many things to do in the area that attracted us to this particular cottage, and we were not disappointed with anything.

Mrs Williams, Birmingham, August 2013
