Description

Boxwood is a high quality property, exquisitely presented and sleeps six guests. The beautiful woodland area is fantastic for dog walkers.

Located in a tranquil, rural setting on the beautiful Bere Peninsula, the tiny hamlet of Hewton nestles within a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the rolling fields that run down to the Tamar Estuary, which forms the Devon/Cornwall border. The properties are superbly appointed and a real credit to the owners. From the extensive 5-acre gardens there are the most spectacular views down the valley and over the river where yachts lie moored. The owners’ formal garden is beautifully landscaped and is home to many unusual and exotic plants, a koi pond and large, mature trees. The outdoor heated swimming pool is surrounded by decking and there are sun loungers and garden furniture for guests to relax on and admire the view. There is a large field towards the bottom of the gardens and a mature wooded valley. These properties offer complete tranquil relaxation in a truly picturesque setting - ideal for couples as well as those with children. On the doorstep are splendid walks, cycle routes and horse riding with tennis, golf, fishing, sailing and canoeing available locally. The ancient stannery town of Tavistock, Dartmoor and several NT properties (including Cotehele and Buckland Abbey) are close by, and the beaches of South and North Devon within an hour’s drive. Shops 2 miles.

    Boxwood cottage was a really wonderful place to stay. It was a home-from-home, but also a lovely holiday place as well. Beautifully equipped with everything one would ever need, plus more (i.e. many books, games, etc.) if required. Cottage very comfortable, bed absolutely splendid. The family, plus cat and dog, were very welcoming and one felt that they were very approachable, but never pushy. At Boxwood we had the use of the summer house in the owners' garden, which was a blissful place where one could sit inside or outside and we were able to enjoy our sketching, painting, etc. It was great to be able to wander through the owners' magnificent garden; we admired the swimming pool, but the weather was not really conducive to swimming whilst we were there. On the day we went home, we both wished that we had booked for a fortnight.

    Loved the price and location and the kids loved the pool. The owners were lovely and the home baked cake was great when we arrived.
