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 Telford stayed for 7 nights.

Ideal base for exploring

A very comfortable and tastefully decorated morden cottage. Even better with the free Wi-Fi to keep three teens happy. Spacious and comfortable, and we were felt welcomed during our stay. The location is fine with local shops nearby, and very convenient for exploring northern part of Cornwall. We are very happy with the added bonus of excellent weather during our stay!
