The small village of Bere Ferrers lies on the Bere peninsula, situated between the Rivers Tavy and Tamar. In bygone days this was a mining community for tin and silver lead ore, with much of the surrounding area taken up with daffodil farming and soft fruit, such as strawberries, cherries and grapes. Now it is a peaceful rural area with a railway link to Plymouth along the picturesque Tamar Valley line. With its riverside frontage and historic church, Bere Ferrers has always been well worth visiting but the recent addition of a visitor centre at the pretty railway station makes it popular with railway enthusiasts, who enjoy a cup of tea in the fully restored 1958 Pullman-style dining car. There is plenty to see including the 1950 LMS sleeping carriage with display booths, showing the history of Bere Ferrers, Bere Alston and the Tamar Valley. Just upstream from Bere Ferrers on the river Tamar is Morwellam Quay, a tiny harbour where half the world’s copper travelled through in the 1860s, and which is now a popular visitor attraction telling the story of copper mining through history. Two National Trust properties in the area are Cotehele, a Tudor manor house with glorious gardens stretching down to the river Tamar and Buckland Abbey, an estate on the river Tavy with craft workshops and family attractions.
