    • “We love going to Miner's Dry. It was out 5th or 6th visit and we go back every year for a rest from life break. Rosie is a great owner and is lovely. On this visit we knew we would be late arriving so she put a heater on and set the wood burner so we could just light it when we arrived. Would thoroughly recommend visiting here. The location is amazing, the quiet is perfect and it's just for 2 adults (dogs welcome too - ours love it too)”

    Mrs Murray, Salisbury, January 2019

    • “I was able to book this holiday through Sykes very easily. They contacted me when they said they would and the whole transaction was seamless. Miners Dry cottage is beautiful and the surrounding walks are amazing.only 12 minutes drive from Tavistock for all the shopping you need. Such a chilled out holiday! I’m looking forward to booking again.”

    Mrs Tate, Hayling Island, September 2018

    • “We loved how secluded the cottage was whilst still being close enough to civilisation should we need help. The Tamar Trails are literally on the doorstep so there are great walks easily accessible but the rest of Devon and Cornwall are within driving distance too. The cottage had everything we needed for a week away with no frills or excesses. It was clean and cosy and the owner was lovely and welcoming. Normally when we go on holiday we charge around doing stuff but here we spent quite a lot of time just chilling and watching the wildlife from the table and chairs in the front garden, it was so quiet, relaxing and beautiful. We have already recommended it to a friend.”

    Mrs Haigh, HOOK, August 2018

    • “This was our 4th stay at Miners Dry. We enjoy the peacefulness of its locality and the nearness to the Tamar Trails which we enjoy walking with our dog. Also location is ideal for travelling to many tourist attractions.”

    Mr Hind, LEICESTER, April 2018

    • “Absolutely great !........ Wonderful welcome - cream tea etc. Cottage warm, cosy and friendly, area brilliant and peaceful - much needed...... and thank you so much for arranging the perfect weather . We will be re booking.”

    Mr Buckle, BRISTOL, April 2018

    • “Miners Dry is situated in superb walking country within the wooded Tamar Trials and the historical mining area. Didn't need a car for first 4 days as walked from the cottage, also good for birds, deer, bats etc. Recommend it.”

    Mr Burgess, Shrewsbury, April 2018

    • “We love Miners' Dry. We try to get there at least once a year for the secluded and peaceful area. Our dogs love the trails. The owner is lovely and friendly and we love a homemade cream tea. Tavistock is not far away and a lovely town. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here”

The Property

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.
