“Lovely cottage, peaceful natural site - a pleasure”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Lovely cottage - in an amazing site - it was like living in a nature reserve for the week. Great for those without a car - plenty accessible from the train and bus. Good quality bed, the sofa was comfortable to sleep on too. You should know that the quilt and pillows are feather (in case you are allergic) and that the kitchen equipment is of a high standard (if you are planing to cook for yourself).

“Truly a hidden gem on the Tamar”

If your body is flagging and your spirits flat, this is the spot to go to recharge. Doubtful you can find a place so tranquil and with such stunning vistas which still allows you easy access to the very best of Cornwall and Devon's stunning coast and moors.

We stayed in March with our spaniel and were able to watch the spring break out all around us. Dawn chorus of wild birds with no background manmade hum anywhere. Sweeping views East and West along the Tamar with Cormorants, Geese, Woodpeckers, Nuthatches to name but a few. Make sure you take your binoculars.

The 2 properties are small and intensely private, affording you complete seclusion and tranquility. The owner, Nick, has made sure everything you need is available in the warm and well equipped Kitchen space complete with log burner with available log supply which keeps you bubbling in the cold nights. Really comfy big bed and super smart bath/shower room. Wi-fi is available but switch your mobile off as there's no signal and frankly if your staying here you shouldn't be looking at your phone!

Big focus on eco-living which is reflected in the build of the converted mine workings which add to the feel good factor. Lovely walks all around you back down into still unspoilt and pretty Calstock. 2 good quality 'local' pubs, The Boot and The Tamar with more than good offerings even on a Sunday evening. Cracking cafe - Lishe - lovely owner who's a dab hand with her cakes and pastries.

It's impossible to fault this place for a break. It's not for those looking for fun and frolics - it's a haven and respite from modern living - a tonic for the soul.

“Perfect base for walking holiday.”

Set in beautiful peaceful county with stunning views over the River Tamar and abundant wild life, the Count House made for a fantastic 'away from it all' base. We walked for miles in the surrounding area visiting many local dog friendly pubs on route. With a branch line to Plymouth and villages in between, there was no need to use the car all week.
Accomodation was clean and warm with plenty of hot water and a very comfortable bed. The property was good value for money and highly recommended if you are looking for peace and quiet.

“Beautiful rural retreat”
Reviewed March 21, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The Count House surpassed all expectations. It is a perfect retreat for nature lovers. The view was breathtakingly beautiful. The cottage was very cosy, tastefully decorated and well equipped. It is well situated to explore both Cornwall and Devon. We really did not want to leave and look forward to going back.

“A relaxing retreat”
Reviewed February 22, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This little cottage / hideaway is perfect for two people to escape to. It is in a perfect location. Lovely walks in the area and two little pubs in walking distance. The view from the cottage is beautiful.
