    “Beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean.”

The property

Callington 3.9 miles.

A characterful holiday cottage resting within the quaint village of Pillaton, set within striking distance of the beautiful Tamer Valley AONB.

This quaint accommodation is the perfect base for you and your partner to explore all that this corner of Cornwall has to offer, from the glorious coastline to the wonder of the Dartmoor National Park, offering the best of both.

Step into the open-plan living room, which enjoys a contemporary design, boasting a sleek kitchen area where you can rustle up some home-cooked delights and a plush sofa, which you can sink into after an action-packed afternoon.

Once the evening draws to a close, make your way up the staircase to find the stylish bedroom, where characterful beams frame the elegantly-presented double bed and the ample storage space for your holiday belongings.

Concluding this self-catering holiday home, is the deluxe en-suite, boasting a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, head to the adjacent Weary Friar Inn, where you will be delighted by the delicious dining menu and the welcoming atmosphere to complement.

Head into the nearby Callington, a bustling market town, where you will find further eateries and shops for picking up any essentials.

For those wishing to brush up on the local history, a scenic drive will take you to the National Trust property of Cotehele, a medieval house with Tudor additions or slightly further afield is Buckland Abbey which is considered to be an ancient gem in the Tavy Valley.

If you are feeling energetic, the landscape of the Tamar Valley plays host to a plethora of enchanting walks, or head into Devon to explore the wild and open moorlands of the Dartmoor National Park.

From the cottage, you could also venture to the coastline to spend the day at the port city of Plymouth or enjoy a traditional seaside day at Tregantle Beach.

Friars Rest is a wonderful retreat for you and your loved one to explore this part of Cornwall.

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.
