    Parking is a bit limited, we struggled to park the first few days, resulting in someone hitting my car when it was parked, and causing damage to the bumper then driving away and not leaving a note

The property

Lying on the wonderful Honicombe Holiday Village in the picturesque Tamar Valley is Bird's Eye View, a reverse-level cottage offering a family of six a fantastic base for adventures in Cornwall.

Enjoying the added benefits of the on-site swimming pools, play areas, pub and shop, Bird's Eye View boasts stunning countryside views from its long balcony, and a spacious open-plan living room for all to relax in.

Following a fun day outdoors in the Tamar Valley AONB, return to your home away from home and head straight upstairs to the open-plan living space; relax on the sofas to enjoy watching the Smart TV or gather around the dining table to tuck into a post-adventure snack.

Enjoying the gorgeous backdrop of rolling fields from the windows, head into the fitted kitchen to rustle up some delicious home-cooked food, with ample appliances to assist you, or treat everyone to a meal at the excellent on-site pub/restaurant.

Spend time out on the balcony, the perfect spot for your morning coffee and evening drinks later on.

Travel downstairs to discover three charming bedrooms, including a king-size, a twin, and a double all boasting attractive furnishings and décor for you to unwind in, and served by two shower rooms to freshen up in before and after your big adventures.

Begin your days with a relaxing swim in the indoor heated swimming pool, or on warmer days head to the outdoor pool instead, with a children's play area that little ones are sure to love, and a charming shared space with a duck pond being perfect for picnics.

Nearby is the National Trust's Cotehele, a grand tapestry-lined house with beautiful gardens to explore which overlook the River Tamar, offering a picturesque day out all round.

The wonderful Tamar Valley Donkey Park is just a stone's throw from Honicombe Holiday Village, home to 'Cornwall's happiest donkeys' along with goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits and guinea pigs all available to feed and pet, creating a fun-filled and memorable experience for all ages!

For a truly relaxing and immersive way to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Tamar Valley AONB, head out on a fantastic canoe safari with plenty of local organisers offering tours along this idyllic river, with the chance to spot wildlife along the way and learn about the area from your guide.

Discover the town of Tavistock where you can browse their renowned Tavistock Pannier Market, a large indoor market occurring regularly, ideal for picking up local produce and gifts, as well as visit the Tavistock Museum and take a peek at Tavistock Aqueduct.

Embark on walks from the Tamar Trails Centre, an exciting centre offering activities, bike hire, canoes, and zip wires, home to the sit of Devon Great Consols, once the largest copper mine in the world!

Other attractions include Morwellham Quay and Kit Hill Country Park, whilst further afield along the coast is Whitsand Bay for fun beach days, the South West Coast Path and the old fishing town of Looe.

There's so much to see and do nearby in the Tamar Valley from the wonderful base of Bird's Eye View.

About the location


Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 miles, Plymouth 14.6 miles.

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwhellam Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
