    “We very greatly enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again some time in the future.”

    We live in the South East and very much wanted an escape from all the busyness of the world. We were not disappointed. The cabin is perfect for a retreat but it is close enough to beautiful and interesting places to also have a holiday. In fact we took advantage of the trails that pass right past the cabin and took the long walk past the old mine workings and along the valley and down to the quay.

    We live in the South East and very much wanted an escape from all the busyness of the world. We were not disappointed. The cabin is perfect for a retreat but it is close enough to beautiful and interesting places to also have a holiday. In fact we took advantage of the trails that pass right past the cabin and took the long walk past the old mine workings and along the valley and down to the quay. These walks are mostly through pine plantations with occasional views of the beautiful valley and fascinating for anyone with even the most casual interest in Victorian industrial archaeology . Anyone wanting more open countryside can take a short drive to Dartmoor which is as open as you could ever get! We had a fabulous lunch in Tavistock and at every turn we were surprised by how quiet (in a good way) everything was. Even Totnes and the South Ham's coastline is only an hour away so if bad weather requires something different this place is perfectly situated. Catherine, our host, was helpful and friendly and when I foolishly left my laptop charger behind she quickly returned it without my having to ask or pay for the postage. She made the cabin inviting for our arrival with scones and cream, which once heated up in the oven created a problem by way of awakening a taste for these delicious treats. Most importantly she allowed us to bring our very elderly cat, a very important personage without whose company we wouldn't have been able to come. The cat appreciated the warmth of the cabin and also enjoyed sitting outside with us soaking up the sun. The cabin is situated by itself so there is total privacy, peace and solitude. The very occasional person walks past on one of the trails but this in no way spoilt the solitude of the place. The only sounds are the wind in the trees and bird song so all in all - for anyone seeking escape from noise and bustle - this location is a winner.

The property

Within two acres of National Heritage Site woodland about a mile from Gulworthy is this secluded little single-storey cottage.

Magically surrounded by a woodland garden, it is a very special place for couples to enjoy a romantic break.

A few steps lead you up into the open plan living space, once a place for miners to dry their clothes and now a comfy and lovely room with beams and cosy wood burning stove in the inglenook.

The en suite double bedroom is a romantic place for peaceful nights in this private setting.

Enjoy outdoor suppers around the barbecue in the garden and you may hear the nightjar or spot shy deer around you.

With the Tamar Trails on your doorstep, head out with the map provided for long walks or cycle rides.

Or why not pick up a paddle and join the canoe expeditions on the interesting River Tamar?

The National Trust houses of Cotehele and Buckland Abbey are fascinating to visit, as is historic Morwellham Quay.

The nearby Horn of Plenty restaurant is renowned or maybe eat out in the old market town of Tavistock or the bustling city of Plymouth.

Miners Dry is a fabulous place for chilling out or enjoying quality time with your nearest and dearest.
