Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Calstock, Cornwall, England
Unusual romantic retreats for 2 people - offering peace, tranquility and beautiful elevated views across the River Tamar. Ideal for honeymoons, wedding anniversaries (especially 10th which is 'Tin'!), birthdays or just as a cosy hideaway to get away from it all. You will feel like you are miles away from anywhere, yet the village of Calstock is only a short 10/15 minute walk along the river bank - this quaint Cornish village has a shop open from 8am to 8pm, two pubs which serve food, an art gallery, and branch line railway station with regular services to Plymouth. The National Trust's enchanting Cotehele House is also within walking distance and the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail actually passes through Okel Tor. Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor and the sandy beaches at Whitsand Bay on the south coast are just a short drive away.

This was our fourth visit to Okel Tor but our first time in the Count House. Both the Count House and The Smithy are very comfortable and well equipped but the Count House has amazing views out over the river Tamar. We had some lovely...More
