A detached holiday cottage in the grounds of the owner’s property, with views across the open countryside and down river. A perfect retreat for active couples who enjoy cycling, canoeing and hiking, or for those who are just in search of picturesque settings, quiet walks and visits to the local pub. Set in the pretty riverside village of Calstock, in the heart of the Tamar Valley . It is a great base from which to explore many areas, including the market town of Tavistock, Dartmoor with rugged tors, rural mid Cornwall, or even the sweeping beaches on the north and south Cornish coastlines. There is a public slipway into a tidal river available in the village. A local motorcycle festival takes place in the village during the first weekend in August each year. Shop and pub ¼ mile.
there was no shop in the village granted out of your control...
Comfortable and warm for an autumn break. Very quiet despite the occasional train going past behind the cottage. The drawbacks are no wifi or mobile signal but this might be a positive for some people. No shop in the village but two good pubs. The directions on the website are up the creek...for right read left! Many good walks from the house but all end with a final slog up the hill.
A lovely stay at a very picturesque cottage! The owners were very welcoming and our cream tea on arrival was great! The directions to the house I think should be reviewed but that’s a very minor negative! The surrounding area was beautiful and lots to do short car drives away. We would definitely recommend and come again!
Beautiful, clean accommodation. Excellent location with 2 pubs within walking distance, river side walk and beautiful scenery. Lots to see and do within the surrounding area.
The property has everything needed although the shower room could be slightly bigger and would have been better on the first floor. There are lots of good walks in the area which makes it a good choice if you have a dog.
The Little House was perfect for our holiday. It was small but adequate with modern, clean fixtures and fittings. The bedroom was amazing. It is situated at the top of a fairly steep hill but not far from the centre of the village. Being at the top of the hill meant there were lovely views across the valley and river. Calstock is a lovely village and probably the most tranquil holiday experience we have ever had! There's a great pub in the village and lovely walks along the riverside. The surrounding area is beautiful. As dog owners we couldn't recommend a better place to holiday -spoilt for choice with woods, rivers and hills. We shall be back!
This was a delightful cottage - home from home - it had everything that you would need! The owners lived next door and were very friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The delicious cream tea was much appreciated - Thank you! We hope to return.
Our stay November, 2019
Stayed at the Little House for a week in November. The weather wasn't very good but the house was perfect. It had everything you could want and was very comfortable and warm. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Little House and pay a visit to the Tamar Inn where you will find good food. I would recommend contacting the owners in advance to get some better directions to the property as the ones supplied can be misleading.
