Dear Guests . Richard and I retired to Gunnislake in 2014 and renovated his family's house after his father passed away. Richard was in the hospitality business for most of his working life and we have been fortunate enough to have lived in various islands in the Caribbean but have spent the last 20 years in the USA in New York , and Virginia . As empty nesters living in this gorgeous location we look forward to welcoming you to this special place. We will do everything in our power to make your stay with us memorable. We prefer to keep a low profile so that our guests can enjoy their private times and to feel free to come and go as they please ,but we will always be on hand to see to the requests and comfort of our guests.
The wildlife -spotting opportunities all around the Tamar valley are vast. There are an abundance of trails and hikes to choose from close to our house , some of which take you through the mining history of this area . We are in close proximity to Dartmoor where you can either walk the moors or you can view this magnificent scenery from Horseback. We are conveniently located to visit North or South Cornwall beaches. Just down the road from us is the famous Morwellham Quay and Cotehele House. Plymouth is 40 minutes away where you can enjoy the historic Barbican district and visit the Mayflower museum and Plymouth Hoe. You can quite easily catch the train from Gunnislake to Plymouth and enjoy the views of the Tamar valley . Only 4 miles away is the famous Stannary town of Tavistock where Sir Francis Drake was born (his house Buckland Abbey is also close by). Enjoy the Pannier market and shopping/dining in this historic town. Canoeing and boat trips are available from Calstock which is 2 miles away. The Tamar Trails centre is only one mile away and offers a wide selection of enjoyable activities such as ,archery , tree Surfing, biking, hiking, & canoeing.
