Nestled by the scenic Tamar River and enveloped by the Tamar Valley's rich beauty and historical charm, this cottage offers a truly remarkable setting for any aspiring guest. The designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) showcases some of the most exquisite landscapes in the West Country, and the estuary serves as a vital sanctuary for various wildlife, including avocets and little egrets. As a result, this escape is ideal for enchanting hiking trails and exploration opportunities for guests of all abilities. The historic World Heritage town of Tavistock, just 7.5 miles away, beckons with its pannier market, boutique shops, and numerous cafes. A short 5-mile drive leads to the captivating National Trust property, Buckland Abbey, while those looking for a unique experience can venture further to explore Plymouth Gin (15 miles) or enjoy a day at Pennywell Farm (30 miles).

Upon stepping into this exquisite retreat, you'll immediately be struck by the luxurious, airy design that graces the entire cottage. The sliding doors seamlessly merge the indoors with the outdoors, providing guests with a breathtaking panoramic view of the river. The initial area is a bright and inviting open-plan lounge, kitchen, and dining space, with the well-equipped kitchen boasting all the essentials needed for a stress-free stay. The lounge area features plush sofas and armchairs for relaxation while enjoying entertainment on the Smart TV. You can snuggle up on chilly evenings in front of the double-sided wood burner (or enjoy the dancing flames from the bedroom). Completing this area is a dining space which is an ideal setting for casual meals. From here, a transition leads to the generously sized king-size bedroom, replete with a lavish en-suite bathroom featuring a bath, waterfall shower, and a WC.

Sliding doors open to a private patio terrace, offering the perfect spot to savour the views right from your bed, making it an idyllic place to start the day on those fresh Devonshire mornings. The cottage benefits from its own patio terrace which can be accessed from the private driveway, or via the living and bedroom spaces. Relax on the comfortable outdoor seating and fire up the BBQ to enjoy while taking in the stunning views across the river. Take the short steps from the property up to the secluded hot tub - your own little bit of luxury at this unique retreat. In addition to this, there is also a shared, heated indoor swimming pool just up the lane which can be booked for private use too.
