R76 - Turners Retreat
About the home
Perched ¼ mile above the centre of Calstock, surrounded by trees with great views over the river Tamar, a very smart, totally self-contained extension to a big detached house. It is surrounded by 5 acres of mature garden and meadow, full of wildlife, some chickens, a friendly dog, cats and spring-time lambs. Reputedly, it's where Joseph Turner found inspiration for his painting 'Sunshine on the Tamar'. Access is over 400 yards of single track lane, the last 100 yards of which is hardcore.
Inside, modern and immaculate. From decking (table/chairs, barbecue), patio doors to open-plan living/dining (TV/DVD)/kitchen (washing machine, microwave, larder fridge) with ceramic floor and woodburner. Double bedroom (5' bed) with glazed doors to garden, big shower-room (wet-room suite). Wonderfully private with footpath to village pub. No children under 10, except pre-crawling babies.

The West Country / Cornwall region
South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor's southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.
On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall's loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don't miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.
The Calstock area
Calstock: time-forgotten village on the wooded Cornish side of the river Tamar (pub, shop, single track railway station); footpath to Cotehele House (Nat. Trust), 1 mile. Fun canoeing expeditions. Once a thriving mining valley, now a World Heritage Site dominated by birdsong. Wonderful walks. Tavistock, 6 miles.
