    “The cottage is in a quiet secluded location ,access to the property on the unmade Road needs a bit more information for lower sitting cars .”

The property

Set peacefully in woodland, about 2 miles from Gulworthy, a detached stone-built single-storey cottage, once serving nearby Wheal Josiah, the richest copper mine in Europe.

With the mine long abandoned, the cottage has been thoughtfully restored.

Lime-rendered walls and oak floors complement stylish decor, and your own 4-person hot tub and private woodland garden (table/chairs, barbecue) complete an idyllic spot to unwind.

Beyond the garden, acres of woodland and the Tamar Trails for walking/cycling; activity centre (tree-surfing) and café, around 20 minute walk.

Nearest pub, 1½ miles. From terrace at the front, ceiling-high, glazed bi-fold doors into living/dining room (woodburner, TV/DVD, iPod dock); smart kitchen (slimline dishwasher, combi-microwave, fridge, electric oven/gas hob).

Double bedroom (6' zip-linked bed or twin).

Bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand-shower, separate shower).

Use of washing machine, by arrangement.

Spring water.

A peaceful and picturesque retreat where you can choose to do as little or as much as you wish. 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).


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, Nat.
