Stoke Climsland is a picturesque village with a 15th century church and roots dating back to the Domesday Book as one of the seventeen Antiqua Maneria situated in the Duchy of Cornwall, originally listed as Climson.
Callington is a short drive from Stoke Climsland and has a good selection of local amenities, including a Tesco, a number of good pubs, doctors surgeries etc.
The Tamar Valley is a stunning, quiet, picturesque region with some beautiful villages including Calstock with its impressive Viaduct dominating the village, Calstock Quay was originally used for transportation of tin as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides, although the construction of the Tamar Valley Railway in the early 20th century led to most cargo being transported by rail. Further up stream is Morwellham Quay with its fantastic open air museum, Morwellham Quay has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO, the cultural arm of the UN, and is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. Tavistock is just over the border in Devon, an ancient stannary and market town on the edge of Dartmoor, it has a wealth of fine pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions including ruins of a Benedictine Abbey which was founded in 961.
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Domesday Book.
Dartmoor is one of our National Parks and covers 368 square miles of Devon, from tors and moorland, to valleys with streams and waterfalls, Dartmoor is rich with Neolithic and early Bronze age hut circles and standing stones, there are dozens of walks from easy strolls to demanding hikes. The highest point is High Willhays at 2037ft above sea level with stunning views in all directions. Princetown in the centre has the renowned Dartmoor Brewery with the famous "Jail Ale" named as a reference to Dartmoor Prison, this can be sampled at the Prince of Wales which originally was the home of the Brewery (it has now been moved to a purpose built facility just down the road!), alternatively the Plume of Feathers pub offers fine, warming, food, fires and awarding beer from St Austell Ales.

Guest from Scunthorpe stayed for 7 nights.
We enjoyed a pleasant and relaxing week at Manor Barn, a delightful cottage in a lovely out of the way village. Our hosts were really friendly and most thoughtful, providing for us a light high tea to welcome us to Manor Barn - most welcome following our long car journey. We found the location perfect for our needs, allowing us to plan day trips to North and South coasts, and to visit family nearby. We did find the wifi connection very intermittent though so you need to be aware of this when considering a booking, and the 'over the bath' shower simply dribbles so baths rather than showers were the order of the day. However, all things considered, we thought Manor Barn good value for money and enjoyed our stay there.
