The Shippon




The Tamar Valley

The holiday cottage lies in the Tamar Valley in Devon, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, close to the border with Cornwall.  In 2006 Mining in the Tamar Valley was accorded a UNESCO World Heritage Status. 

The area is ideal for the Devon rambler being on the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail from Plymouth to Launceston. The quaint village of Weir Quay with its boatyard, is about an hour's walk along the river.  Discover the river wildlife by hiring canoes through Canoe Tamar.

The holiday cottage is within easy access of the village of Bere Alston and about eight miles from the picturesque market town of Tavistock on the edge of Dartmoor.

Bere Alston Station is on the Tamar Valley Line railway from Gunnislake to Plymouth where there are mainline connections..
