Tamar 14 is a modern holiday home in Tamar Valley Resort, a development of purpose built and privately owned self-catering holiday cottages in Callington.
The villa-style accommodation is well placed for guests looking to explore both Cornwall and Devon and has some fantastic local attractions nearby.
Tamar 14 is a well appointed holiday home with heavenly views towards Dartmoor and across the Tamar Valley and oodles of space to sleep, eat and play.
An immaculate, homely interior popular among families and walkers, the open-plan living room is well arranged with squishy sofas, a chunky dining table and a modern kitchen, that is one of the few on-site with a washing machine.
Enjoy the picture window views at mealtimes or, if cooking is not on the menu, a good pub/restaurant is a walk away.
Located away from the roads and traffic noise, guests will sleep soundly on comfortable beds after days out exploring Cornwall's great outdoors.
There is one double and two twin bedrooms furnished with heavy wooden furniture and pretty bed linens plus a pristine family bathroom on the ground floor.
Children can let off steam on the communal lawn whilst parents keep a watchful eye from the private balcony with a glass of something chilled.
Tamar 14 sits centrally on the resort, with a children's outdoor play area and the tennis courts within easy reach.
During the school holidays there is a busy programme of entertainment including quiz nights and karaoke plus sporting activities including archery, rock climbing, canoeing and abseiling (subject to seasonal opening times).
Within a short drive is the National Trust property, Cotehele, a Tudor house and valley garden estate set above the River Tamar.
A little further afield you can visit the glorious sandy beach at Whitsand Bay with dramatic scenery and sheer cliffs.
Equally accessible are Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park with undulating moorlands and a myriad of historic sites and monuments - a rambler's dream.
About the location
Tavistock 9 miles; Launceston 11.5 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.
