On the Devon/Cornwall border at the historic Tamar Bridge, this detached barn is perfectly located for walking, mountain biking and tree surfing nearby.

Sitting on the Devon side of the border in the parish of Gulworthy, Tamar Barn is located just above the river at the scheduled ancient monument, Tamar Bridge (built 1520) crossing into Cornwall at Gunnislake. The Tamar Valley is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are many delightful areas to see and explore. Tamar Barn is a detached, converted stone building, which lies adjacent to the owners’ home and has a patio area and enclosed garden for children and dogs to enjoy. Gunnislake has a good range of local shops and pubs, as well as the benefit of a railway station linking you to Plymouth and bus service to Tavistock and Liskeard. Nearby, the Tamar Trails Centre offers a wide range of outdoor activities including walking, mountain biking, archery and high wire tree surfing. Other highlights in the area include the historic mining port of Morwellham Quay and a boat trip down the River Tamar from the pretty village of Calstock. Tavistock has an active local market, and there is access up onto Dartmoor National Park from there. At Plymouth you can stroll across The Hoe or visit the National Aquarium. The coast at both Devon and Cornwall are accessible (beaches 16 miles) and the international golf resort of St Mellion is 15 minutes away. The renowned Horn of Plenty is only ten minutes walk away and offers quality dining. Beach 16 miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants 500 yards.

    We had a lovely comfortable break at the barn. The Barn was very cosy and clean and perfect for us and our dog! The property was very safe for the dog and the location is easy access to both Devon and Cornwall with lovely walks and great country surroundings 😀

    Overall the cottage had character, enough space and most amenities that we needed. I liked the location in the Tamar Valley World Heritage area. The nearby road had little impact on our stay. There was plenty to do within reasonable driving distance and lots of places of interest nearby, especially if you have any interest in industrial history. I do think it was misleading to advertise Tamar Barn as having wifi - all four of our party had limited success in getting a connection. This was unfortunate since wifi was an important reason why I chose this property. It was also a minor irritation that the upstairs shower lacked a shower head!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Really sorry to hear about problems with WiFi, if we'd known we would have tried to get it sorted during your stay. We have now changed the WiFi access point and this should have resolved the issue so that WiFi is working. We have improved the upstairs shower so that the two bathrooms are in excellent order. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Tamar barn is situated on the Devon/Cornwall border in a quiet village with a few shops and pubs within walking distance up a steep hill. The barn itself is beautiful with everything you need for a relaxing stay and a lovely enclosed garden perfect for dogs. Gorgeous train journey into Plymouth on the Tamar line well worth a visit. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Some beautiful walks close by but can get a bit muddy so take your walking shoes. We had a lovely week at the Tamar Barn with some glorious sunshine making full use of the garden and bbq on those days.

    Lovely Barn but needs finishing touches. Have to travel by car to get anywhere as situated on a busy main road, not safe to walk out. Garden was not fully enclosed so at the time not safe for the dog or children to play out alone, also garden access was a distance from the kitchen,if eating out.
