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 5 miles; Plymouth 18 miles.
The small rural village of Gunnislake lies on the steeply wooded banks of the River Tamar. It has village pubs and a small selection of shops. Notably, the village sits at one end of the scenic Tamar Valley Railway - with regular services along the river bank to Plymouth. The area is perfect for exploring Dartmoor, the south and north coast beaches and the attractions of Cornwall’s far west. Close to hand, the Dartmoor town of Tavistock with its pannier market, pubs and restaurants is a must, as well as the popular fishing village of Calstock, renowned for its crafts and festivals, while the Donkey Sanctuary and Cotehele House and Gardens (NT) are just 10 minutes away. Enjoy a round of golf at St Mellion (8 miles), explore the restored Victorian mining village at Morwhellam Quay (4 miles), search for otters and deer along the Tamar Valley footpath, visit the National Trust owned Lydford Gorge, or take a trip to the beach and picturesque harbour at Looe (25 miles) - there’s something for everyone. For something really different, why not ride the scenic Tamar Valley Railway into Plymouth and spend the day in the fabulous Marine Aquarium or strolling the historic Plymouth Hoe?
