Find cottages in Callington and the Tamar Valley

A picturesque market town steeped in history and a stone’s throw from Tamar Valley, Callington is the perfect destination for a culturally inspiring holiday.

Located in the South East of Cornwall, Callington was once a busy mining town famous for its markets and fairs. Today the area still retains that lively community spirit through unique local produce and arts projects.

At the heart of the town is the 15th century church of St Mary''s, with the original well that once supplied the town still flowing nearby. Budding historians will not be disappointed with the wealth of Celtic relics, ancient tombs and 13th century heritage. Granted a market charter in 1267 by Henry lll the town continues to regularly hold its famous Honey Fair and Pannier market.

Having recently constructed a high-tech honey extraction unit, the production of local honey is continuing to thrive. As part of the Tamar Grow Local cooperative, Callington has become a leader in the drive for locally sourced produce sold through established markets in the Tamar Valley. A definite winner for foodies and families alike, local eateries range from traditional pub fare, to exquisite fine dining at Langmans.

Keep your eyes peeled for the colourful murals painted across walls and buildings that depict the unique heritage of Callington and the surrounding landscape. Enveloped by Cornish farmlands, Kit Hill overlooks the town with its landmark ancient mining stack. Providing spectacular views of Bodmin Moor, this countryside park has footpaths horse riding, picnic spots. Venturing further out still will bring you to Newbridge and the fantastical woodland walks that follow the Lynher River.

Well loved by the Cornish as well as a culture packed destination for tourists, holiday cottages in Callington provide the most authentic way to experience the town while staying in a relaxed, superbly maintained environment.

    National Trust Property

    A most beautiful National Trust estate, set on the banks of the River Tamar, Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. This magnificent Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. In the gardens and grounds of Cotehele, you can easily lose yourself exploring this most tranquil and beautiful location. Admire the stunning, formally planted terraces of gorgeous, colourful plants, or wander down to the Valley Garden, which includes a medieval stewpond and dovecote, which in turn leads down to the River Tamar. Sit a while and seek tranquillity in the beautiful Upper Garden and explore the orchards planted with local varieties of apples and cherry trees.

    From early spring, bright flowers adorn the grounds and the colourful herbaceous borders are simply stunning in high season. With orchards bearing fruit in the autumn and dainty snowdrops peeking through in winter, there will be horticultural activity all year round. This very popular National Trust property appeals to people of all ages, but Cotehele will be available to guests in early mornings and after the day visitors have gone home.

    In the 19th century, local industries boomed and Cotehele Quay bustled with vessels loading and unloading cargo. Paddle steamers came upriver to see the Tamar Valley’s famous blossoming orchards, and small boats carried market-gardening produce back down the river for sale at Devonport Market. The restored sailing barge Shamrock is moored at the quay and a proper Cornish cream tea can be enjoyed in the Edgcumbe tea room. The Discovery Centre here tells the story of the Tamar Valley, offering a gateway to the wider estate and is just a short walk through the Morden Valley to the sister property Cotehele Mill. Cotehele welcome dogs and there are some great walks on the miles of paths around the estate, at the quay and in the mill grounds. Dogs are also welcome in the outside seating area of the restaurants. Assistance dogs only are welcome in the house and garden.
    The enchanting hamlet of Botherick is on the southern edge of the Cotehele Estate. It grew up in the 19th century, probably to house miners working in the nearby silver-lead mines and the men working in the limekilns and on the quays beside the river below. Tremletts 4 is the end cottage in the row, with lovely views over open countryside. On a clear day, you can see all the way down the Tamar Valley to the two bridges at Saltash.
