  • Lynne

    “Miners Dry is a pretty stone cottage situated in the middle of a very large garden on the edge of the tamar valley it’s quiet and very peaceful with amazing walks on its doorstep for humans and their dogs.”

    Plenty of Dartmoor walks and reservoirs to walk around but the busy town of Tavistock to spend a day browsing its many shops, statues, churches, river walks and much much more.

The property

About a mile from Gulworthy, set in 2 acres of National Heritage Site woodland, a totally private, secluded little detached single-storey house surrounded by a woodland garden (table/chairs, barbecue, 3 steps) - a fabulous spot for complete calm and oneness with the natural environment.

The distinctive call of the elusive nightjar can be heard here, and don't be surprised by deer walking through the garden.

Once a drying house for miners working clothes, now an immaculate cosy cottage.

From the garden, 3 shallow steps to door into living/dining/fitted kitchen (washer-drier, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with inglenook (woodburner), TV/DVD and high beams.

Roomy double bedroom (5' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite).

Miles of woodland walking on the Tamar Trails from your doorstep (maps provided).

No children.

A brilliant, romantic, chill-out place. Gulworthy: hamlet (outdoor activity centre/café, Horn of Plenty restaurant) 3 miles from Tavistock, deep in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just on the Devon side of the River Tamar (canoe expeditions).

National Trust Cotehele House and Buckland Abbey, 4 and 6 miles; Morwellham Quay (location of BBC's 'Edwardian Farm'), 4 miles.

Plymouth with its shops, theatres, National Marine Aquarium and historic Barbican, 11 miles.
