J21 - Miners Dry
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
About a mile from Gulworthy, set in 2 acres of Nat. Heritage Site woodland, a totally private, secluded little detached single-storey house surrounded by a woodland garden (table/chairs, barbecue, 3 steps) - a fantastic spot for those seeking complete calm and oneness with the natural environment. The distinctive call of the elusive nightjar can be heard here, and don't be surprised by deer walking through the garden. Once a drying house for miners' working clothes, now an immaculate cosy cottage. From the garden, 3 shallow steps to door into living/dining/fitted kitchen (washer-drier, microwave) with inglenook (woodburner - logs included), TV/DVD and exposed high ceiling beams, through to roomy double bedroom (6' zip-linked bed) with en suite shower-room (suite). Miles of woodland walking on the Tamar Trails from your doorstep (maps provided). No children. A brilliant, romantic, chill-out place.

The West Country region
Devons River Country: Devon's middle. This is farmers' Devon. You come here to be amongst them: to walk and admire their beautiful, rich-soiled, hilly and wooded farmland and enjoy their excellent, proper pubs in usually hill-top, compact, unspoilt villages; and to fish for trout and perhaps salmon in the deep wooded and very beautiful valleys of the rivers Torridge, Taw, Tamar and Exe especially and for trout in reservoirs. Great, magnetic views of Dartmoor and Exmoor from most hill-tops, and it's an easy drive to both. But don't think a daily trip to the sea will be a doddle.
Tiverton is the main town (you can go barging on its canal); Crediton, in its red-soil vale, Torrington, where glass is blown, and South Molton are the others. All have proper, individual, useful, and, in some cases unusual, shops, for the locals firstly. Cider is made at Winkleigh, and it's a good place for lunch. Hatherleigh is good for several things, including its market.
Gulworthy: hamlet (Horn of Plenty restaurant) 3 miles west of Tavistock, deep in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just on the Devon side of the river Tamar (canoe expeditions). Nat. Trust Cotehele House and Buckland Abbey, 4 and 6 miles; Morwellham Quay (location of BBC's 'Edwardian Farm'), 4 miles. Plymouth with its shops, theatres, Nat. Marine Aquarium and historic Barbican, 11 miles.
