Property Location


Milton Combe is a village in Devon approximately 2 miles from Yelverton and 8 miles from Plymouth. The name Milton Combe is derived from the village's historic name, first mentioned in 1249, of 'Mile Cumbe' literally meaning 'Middle Valley'. The Post Office gave the village its current name in 1890, to distinguish it from the many other 'Miltons' in the nearby area. During the Second World War, the village used by inhabitants of the Royal Navy Hospital at Maristow, the American Army Camp at Bickham and RAF Harrowbeer. The village has its own small War Memorial dedicated to Milton Combe's men who fell in the Second World War. Milton Combe is known locally for its annual duck race along the Milton Brook starting from The Who'd Have Thought It public house through the village. In the 16th century, the resident of what is now the pub decided to apply for a licence to sell alcohol. His fellow villagers were unconvinced that he would be granted the licence. For a while, he was the talk of the village for his crazy idea, however shortly after he received a letter from the authorities acknowledging his application and, far more importantly, shortly after that he received another letter granting his application. On opening his letter and obviously in a state of shock, he opened the front door, letter in hand and shouted out across the village “Who’d Have Thought It!” The rest is history. The Duck Race takes place down the stream through the village on Easter Monday and is a great well-supported event.

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 tin transportation as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides. However, the Tamar Valley Railway construction 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 founded in 961.

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 "Jale Ale" named as a reference to Dartmoor Prison. This can be sampled at the Prince of Wales which originally was the Brewery home (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.

Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to 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 Cornwall's 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 old railway route 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 Stein's 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 won awards for their homegrown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have several 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 housed the Crown Jewels and the Domesday Book during the First World War.
