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.

    A lovely location, with great views over the Tamar valley, although you inevitably pay a small price for being in such a beautiful setting - the nearest village is a good 15 min drive away through some very small country lanes. However the nearest Village (B. Alston) is better equipped than most with a train station, 3 village stores and a butchers. The cottage was spotless - we could not fault the cleanliness in any way - and very well-equipped. There is a communal pool which our children loved. All rental cottages have quirks - Boxwood's is that the tumble dryer and freezer were across the drive in an outhouse; this was not an issue for our short stay in summer. The only real negative we could think of is that the cottage has no attached garden. Even this has been considered, with a separate section of the garden (complete with BBQ and summerhouse), allocated to the cottage. This suited us fine, but had we brought our dog the lack of an attached garden could have been an issue. Would definitely come again.

    Our family of 3 had a great 4 night break staying at Boxwood. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The cottage is very spacious for a family of 4 with the added benefit of the shared use of an outdoor heated pool as well as a private large garden with a barbeque area and views of the estuary. The pool kept our young teenager happy after a day of sightseeing. A large welcome chocolate sponge cake and flowers were a nice touch. There was also access to a large DVD library, 2 televisions, a large free standing bath and a well stocked kitchen including a dishwasher and washing machine.

    Ideal location for access to boatyard on Tamar, and for long country walks with dog. Friendly, helpful hosts coping with building works and snowstorms. Beautiful surroundings.

    Lovely cottage and very friendly hosts. As it's an old place the heating can take a little while to get going but they helpfully provide blankets to snuggle under. Only thing that could have improved it would have been basics like a pint of milk and some tea bags on arrival as your reliant on village shops a short drive away which might not be open when you get there. Overall would use again :)

    Lovely cottage and location but not dog friendly and very remote. Felt we were being watched by owner whole time, couldn't use pool on only sunny day, smoked out of harden due to bonfire and kicked off garden so lawn could be mowed. Won't be going back.
