Calstock, Cornwall, England
Unusual romantic retreats for 2 people - offering peace, tranquility and beautiful elevated views across the River Tamar. Ideal for honeymoons, wedding anniversaries (especially 10th which is 'Tin'!), birthdays or just as a cosy hideaway to get away from it all. You will feel like you are miles away from anywhere, yet the village of Calstock is only a short 10/15 minute walk along the river bank - this quaint Cornish village has a shop open from 8am to 8pm, two pubs which serve food, an art gallery, and branch line railway station with regular services to Plymouth. The National Trust's enchanting Cotehele House is also within walking distance and the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail actually passes through Okel Tor. Dartmoor, Bodmin Moor and the sandy beaches at Whitsand Bay on the south coast are just a short drive away.

This is an unusual retreat and as the overview says it offers peace, tranquillity and beautiful elevated views across the River Tamar you can lay in bed and look straight down the Tamar valley and the only thing looking back at you will be the animals. The cottage is very tastefully and suitably decorated with all the facilities you need....

This was our fourth visit to Okel Tor but our first time in the Count House. Both the Count House and The Smithy are very comfortable and well equipped but the Count House has amazing views out over the river Tamar. We had some lovely walks along the river to Cotehele and up Kit Hill. Our dogs were pleased to...

Thank you for your review - it was lovely to see you again. We look forward to your next visit and, hopefully, it won't be quite so cold!

We booked the Count House for a week at the end of January, not the ideal time of year, but it looked such a nice place to have a week away from everything for my partner's birthday. The owners were really helpful through the booking process and went out of their way to answer every question I asked. On arrival...

Management response:

Thank you! We really appreciate you taking the time to write this review and, wow, what a list of birds you spotted. There are a few that have eluded us so we must be more vigilant. We're particularly pleased that the barn owls were seen as we've been concerned lately that they had disappeared. The friendly pheasants are a peculiarity...
