  • "Beautiful peaceful setting."

    Excellent walks for the dogs, thank you for welcoming them. Thanks also for the lovely treats left for us, very much appreciated. Our second trip and won't be our last

  • "A very relaxing week away in beautifully peaceful setting, spotlessly clean and comfortable."

    Mrs PetersNov 2021

  • "Great break away, so isolated and such a great setting to stay."

    Mr MurrayNov 2021

  • "For a late Autumn break Miners Dry was a perfect location, it also ticked the box that let us stay in an idyllic property away from it all."

    We were comfortable, cosy and wonderfully quiet, with superb walks on the doorstep.

  • "The miners dry was exactly what we look for in a holiday cottage, and we will be booking again."

    Mr LittleAug 2021

  • "Lovely stay at Miners Dry."

    .a perfect very quiet little cottage away from it all.. very very peaceful. All very clean, everything you need for a very relaxed stay and a very thoughtful welcoming cream tea on arrival which was delicious.. Thank you

    Miss BakerAug 2021

  • "Great situation with Tamar valley on your doorstep and comfortable cottage to come back to even when weather poor , which made the difference and break enjoyable ."

    Dr WardAug 2021

  • "This was our 3rd stay at the Miners Dry and it's as great as ever!"

    Lovely and isolated but not too far from civilisation. The added extras on arrival such as fresh flowers, scones, jam and milk were a welcome treat.The walkes from the cottage were quite and peaceful, we even saw deers right next to the cottage. The Miners Dry now has wifi, it like the mobile signal is patchy. If you really need wifi and a good mobile signal then maybe this holiday is not for you, but if you plan to leave all that behind then this is ideal. Definitely will be returning again and again.

  • "What an amazing place this is."

    Tucked away in a stunning location you could not ask for a more private retreat; it's no wonder so many people return time and time again. Good facilities in cottage and a lovely welcome pack of goodies and essentials on arrival.

    Mrs NellJun 2021

  • "If you want a get away ,pick you up break in the most beautiful quiet location this is the place."

    Our only disappointment was only having two days to explore .

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.
