About this property

About 2 miles from the little hamlet of Gulworthy, surrounded by woodland is Rock View Cottage. This detached stone-built single-storey cottage, with your own 4-person hot tub, once served nearby Wheal Josiah, the now abandoned, but one time richest copper mine in Europe. The cottage has been thoughtfully restored, lime-rendered walls and oak floors complement the stylish decor, creating a luxurious and rustic feel. Ceiling-high, glazed bi-fold doors flood the sitting room with light. There's a little dining area, a wood burning stove and a smart kitchen. The double bedroom has a huge bed, demanding long lie-ins and easy starts, and the lavish bathroom has a fabulous roll-top bath. Outside is a private woodland garden with a table, chairs and barbecue - an idyllic spot to unwind. Beyond the garden are acres of woodland and the Tamar Trails activity centre for walking/cycling around 20 minutes walk away. Nearby are the historic market town of Tavistock, The Nat. Trust's Cotehele House, Buckland Abbey and Morwellham Quay location of the BBC's 'Edwardian Farm'. Further afield, Plymouth has shops, theatres, the Nat. Marine Aquarium and historic Barbican. Rock View Cottage is a peaceful and picturesque retreat where you can choose to do as little or as much as you wish.

A delightful award-winning market town on the River Tavy, nestling in the south-west slopes of Dartmoor. Tavistock has an indoor pannier market, a diverse range of shops, an excellent choice of pubs, bistros, restaurants, a theatre and a cinema, as well as a leisure pool.

    We had a great holiday and didn't want to leave.

    The location is really secluded and if you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to go. Literally all you can hear is the birds. Lots of walks right on your door step, and a massive hot tub big enough for 6.... So with just two of us was very luxurious. The cottage itself is very well equipped with everything you could need, bed is huge and really comfortable. The only negative I'll say is the seating whilst modern and new... Were not the most comfortable.. they have low backs, so you cant lay out. But that is a minor thing and didn't impact our holiday as we often sat outside, or were in the hot tub. In terms of the location you are far enough removed to have a quiet woodland holiday, but a 20 minute drive will take you into Plymouth, or Cornwall, so close enough for the town's. We ate out a couple of times (horn of plenty is a must try) but mostly cooked at the cottage. The kitchen is fully fitted with every kind of pot/pan you could need. Overall this gets a 5* from us and we will be looking to book again next year.

    The cottage had everything you could possibly need and very, very comfortable. A very quiet and peaceful location. We highly recommend Rock View Cottage and would definitely return. Thank you Nick and Karen
