The property

Bere Alston 1.5 miles.

Clamoak Cottage rests on the edge of the River Tamar in the Tamar Valley AONB, in Clamoak, close to the village of Bere Alston.

This property dates from 1815 and can be found nestled within a majestic surrounding, offering the perfect base for a family or couple and their four legged friend looking to escape city life and enjoy the picture postcard views.

After parking your car at its superb off-road parking spot, you will instantly be welcomed by the tranquil setting of this property.

Stepping into the cottage you will look forward to spending time within the conservatory area which is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee, picking up a set of binoculars or simply admiring the changing tides, sunshine playing on the water and outstanding bird life on the foreshore and mudflats below.

You can also observe the dynamic views from the comfort of the living room, both day and night as birds can be seen gliding and soaring across the mudflats and channel below as the tide comes in and out – an ornithologist's dream!

During those chilly winter evenings, sink into the plush sofas with your loved ones, where you can get lost within a book or a TV programme while the warmth of the wood burning fire and the original exposed beams fills the room with charm.

Beyond here, is the amply equipped kitchen boasting both induction/electric and AGA cooking facilities as well as a set of traditional units and wooden worktops with all the appliances you could need to cook up a delicious meal for your family or friends.

As the evening draws to a close, retire for the night to the two well-presented bedrooms, sleep with the curtains and blinds open if you like waking to spectacular views.

Spend a moment or two within the side and rear lawned garden area, where your canine companion can stretch their legs.

Alternatively, there is a terrace patio area complete with furniture to the front of the property which overlooks the magnificent river views and distant Cornish countryside - a lovely spot to sit out and enjoy a refreshing beverage or a bbq, while watching the captivating sunset.

This outstanding cottage is blessed with close proximity to the wonderful market town of Tavistock which enjoys an undeniable uniqueness, with breath-taking architecture and a fine selection of shops and dining opportunities.

Bere Ferrers is a mile away (closer than Bere Alston); it’s where the Tamar and Tavy rivers join.

The Olde Plough is a lovely mixture of old and new; with locally sourced produce and a rear courtyard garden to catch the west-facing sun with views across the river, this pub makes a lovely evening out, a lunch spot after a game of tennis or indeed a well earned drink after a Devon cycle ride.

For the more adventurous guests, why not jump on your bike to the Tamar trails or the immediate locality, or for a more relaxed day trip, jump on the Heritage Valley Train line to wonderful Calstock and walk on to Cothele and its boatquay tea room.

Tamar Valley AONB is home to an extensive set of footpaths and designated routes for cyclists.

Clamoak Cottage is the ultimate location for friends, families and couples to relax and unwind and is a great location for walking, cycling and water sports.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

  • “What a lovely find this secluded cottage on the river is,just the place for quiet and a comfortable break from everything, sit on the terrace and watch the boats going up and down the Tamar on a sunny evening, then relax in the spacious cottage, or enjoy the garden with all the plants and shrubs which has been beautifully laid out.”

    Would thoroughly recommend a visit here,we had a lovely two weeks here and would definitely come again.

About the location


Tavistock 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

Bere Alston is a small Devon village in a beautiful location between the rivers Tavy and Tamar, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village was once a thriving port shipping tin from Dartmoor. Just upstream from Bere Alston 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. Trains run between Bere Alston and Plymouth, on the picturesque Tamar Valley line, following the river for much of the route. Bere Alston has a village shop and pub and there are plenty of stunning countryside walks. Two National Trust properties in the area are Cotehele, a Tudor manor house and glorious gardens stretching down to the river Tamar and Buckland Abbey, an estate on the river Tavy with craft workshops and family attractions.
