  • “The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure people staying have everything they need so there is nothing to criticise there.”

    They are happy to answer any queries on the facilities or places to go. For people planning to stay there I would say that if you think the owners description of how to find the cottage is over-detailed then it is not. Be prepared to navigate several miles of single track roads and to lose contact with your Sat-Nav a few times :-). The instructions are vital. For techies like me, bring enough USB plugs as there are only two USB points in the cottage. Maybe that is fine for most people but half my suitcase is always filled with USB powered devices and chargers :-) There is free WiFi but mobile signals might be an issue for you so make sure you have WiFi calling enabled.

About the location

LUCKETT

Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwellham Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.

Note: Spring water. Four steps down to main entrance (alternative side entrance without steps). Sofa bed for alternative sleeping.
