From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

    Beautiful cottage with stunning views. We were made to feel welcome whilst at the same time being left alone. We had a wonderful week at Boxwood and can't wait to return.

    A lovely little cottage. Just right for myself and my husband and 2 dogs. Comfortable and well equipped. Would have been a bit of a squeeze if there had been any more adults in our party. Nice little sitting area outside and easy access to fields and footpaths for the dogs. Lots of nice walks from the cottage. Enjoyed the beautiful gardens and the pool, although no view of the Camel River from this cottage. Plenty to do and see in the area. We had a lovely holiday.
