Conveniently located just south of the A30, near the Devon Cornwall border, in a peaceful settlement close to the Tamar Valley, your stay in our historic family home will provide a quiet and relaxing base for days out exploring this fascinating area of the Country.
Set out each day in a different direction, and whatever your interests, you will experience new delights. To the East lies Tavistock and Dartmoor, to the West Launceston and its castle, the Tamar Valley with its mining heritage, Bodmin Moor and Jamaica Inn. Cornwall’s dramatic North coast is within easy reach, or to the South the Maritime City of Plymouth, and a softer coast line.
If outdoor activities are your thing there are a wide variety of walks and cycle trails, as well as a climbing barn close by, sailing at Roadford and Siblyback reservoirs, and of course surfing on the North coast of Cornwall.
