Two historic former Cornish-mine buildings cloaked in woodland with breathtaking elevated views across the River Tamar - peace and tranquillity guaranteed! The Count House and The Smithy each sleep 2. Dogs accepted by arrangement.
It's not often you get to sleep in a Scheduled Ancient Monument, World Heritage Site, AONB and SSSI where there are badgers, kingfishers, cettis warblers, herons, barn owls, otters and rare mosses! The two cottages – converted buildings of a former Victorian tin and copper mine – sit in a fairytale landscape of ivy-clad ruins and tree-covered hillsides. Totally hidden, even from each other, with sweeping views over the river Tamar, their small but well-considered layouts are perfect for a romantic retreat.
Open-plan living areas are cosy with their wood-burning stoves, deep red sofas, rugs on flagstone floors and a table by the window for the views. A simple kitchen and, for wet-weather days, books, games and DVDs. Their bedrooms are fresh, bright and unfussy, with compact functional shower rooms with handmade soaps.
Stroll to the village of Calstock and have a meal in one of its pubs, a coffee in the quirky cafe or perhaps enjoy an ice cream by the river. After browsing the art in the gallery walk further along the river, past the charming Danescombe pottery to the National Trust's enchanting Cotehele House. Have a day exploring the Tamar Valley Trail or visit Morewellham Quay port and copper mine. Within 30 minutes you could be enjoying Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor or Whitsand Bay. Return to your private decking, birdsong, river views and serenity...
Calstock with its railway station and regular bus services to Tavistock and shop is a 10/15 walk away meaning you can easily enjoy a car-free holiday! Both cottages are centrally heated by a carbon-neutral wood pellet boiler and each have log burners with a supply of wood harvested on site. Electricity is from a green energy supplier and there are full recycling and composting facilities.
Short breaks are available out of season (min 2 nights) with 7 nights Friday to Friday throughout the summer months. Prices range from £349 to £725 for 7 nights, with short breaks starting at £122. Dogs are welcome at £25 per booking.
