Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed a relaxing stay in both The Smithy & Count House. Many guests like the fact that the mobile reception is poor so they can get away from it all! You can pick up Orange/T-mobile/EE in the garden and occasionally inside the cottages, but we have the landline phones in each cottage which guests can use if they need to. We look forward to welcoming you back!

“Really stunning”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

On a scale of 1 to 5 I would have to score everything as a 10! What an amazing place! I fly for British airways and have seen a lot of the world as part of my job... But I can honestly say okel tor mine was a little piece of paradise that I've never experienced anywhere else. So tranquil and perfect for relaxing, and we felt everything had been though of... To even have games and walking maps waiting for us! The smithy was warm when we arrived (and we were even there early). The log fire in the evenings was a real treat after walking, and the cosy away from everything atmosphere was just what was needed. It's so beautifully done I wouldn't dare insult The owners by making any suggestion for improvement, I just can't think of anything. We cannot wait to come back!

“If you want to get away from it all, this is where to go . . .”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Almost monastic in it's isolation and seclusion, Okel Tor mine cottages provide peace, quiet and a totally relaxed stay - very relaxing. The view from our 19th Century Assay Office across the Tamar river valley was absolutely fantastic, with so little noise that you can hear the river flowing many feet below you - and sheep bleating the other side of the valley. At night it's so dark the stars look twice as bright, there's no man made light to spoil it. There's a twenty minute walk to the village, where there's a great pub with very good food (The Boot) and a 'corner shop'. Particularly recommended is the railway journey into Plymouth through wonderful countryside at very reasonable cost. Chloe's restaurant in Plymouth is also recommended. A good trip out is the underground rail trip through the old mine not far away. Highly recommended.

“A beautiful place to be”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We wanted somewhere different, scenic and off the beaten track...this was all of those things.
We were made to feel very welcome and would love to go back again. There is so much to explore in this area and it is stunning.
What a view!
Calstock locals were very friendly.
