It’s lovely here, so peaceful in your own private cottage perched above the Tamar; the views over the river are glorious and steep steps lead to the shore and a little jetty – borrow a canoe and paddle up stream. Rowers, geese and herons glide by on misty mornings; the woodland garden is full of spring bulbs, vegetables you can pick, free-range hens and chattering guinea fowl.
Settle on the cushioned window seat in the sitting room with toasty wood-burner, books, art and family photos; pewter jugs on a deep slate sill brim with flowers. The kitchen has a lived-in, charming feel with a cosy Rayburn. Sip coffee on the sheltered terrace that catches the morning sun. The light-filled bedroom has a comfortable bed, thick curtains and that view to wake to.
Delightful Trish can give you routes for good walks, lend you a map and suggest places to visit, boat trips to take. Nearby Tavistock has independent shops and a Saturday market.
