Getting around

The Tamar Valley branch line station of Calstock is a 20 minute walk from the cottage so it's possible to visit by train (shortest journey time from London Paddington, including 1 change at Plymouth, is approximately 4 hours). You can take the train into Plymouth to explore the historic Barbican, Mayflower Steps & Hoe, and during the summer there are ferry trips back to Calstock. There is also a ferry service to National Trust's Cotehele during the summer or you can walk there in approximately 40 minutes. There is a bus stop in the village with regular services to Tavistock and Callington. It's quite easy to enjoy a car-free holiday!

Interaction with guest

Nick, the owner, lives on site in the former Miner's Dry. Nick is usually available to deal with any problems but will respect your privacy. His dog Jess may visit to say hello!

Very Good

“Beautiful quaint rural”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2017

We had a lovely week in the cottage, romantic retreat away from the hussle n bussel of the town where we lived. We drove 30-40 min drive to Dartmoor and then looe beach on various days but there are short walks from cottage, ideal location for dogs. Voyage was clean and tidy, lovely comfy bed with nice linen. Host was lovely said hello but then left us in peace and privacy , thank you

“Lovely stay”

“The Count House, utterly perfect!”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2017

Whether you've your own transport or not, this is a perfect holiday getaway, for it's with in easy reach of the local train station (I came by public transport from London. It was a doddle). The accommodation is exactly as pictured, but it's beauty can only be truly appreciated by coming here. The scenic view is inspiring, sheltered and peaceful. The habitat wild and full of life, with great walks. And a variety of historic sites to explore. The accommodation was first class. Cosy but spacious enough to spread out and make yourself at home. It's spotless and nicely furnished. And it does have EVERYTHING you'd have at home (scales to measure out pasta, veg peeler for carrots, sharp selection of knives). There's a proper cooker with oven, microwave, fridge, tv with Sky and DVD, wifi, wood burner, and plenty of hot water for a shower after a muddy walk. I could go on, but if you're looking for timeout, look no further. Greg & Nick are brilliant too. Nicely organised, welcoming and helpful. I shall definitely be making this an annual break.

“Absolutely stunning!”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Me, my partner and our Frenchie stayed at this cottage for three nights, we had the most amazing and relaxing time. This is perfect if you are looking for beautiful views and a peaceful time by the fire. We will most definitely be coming back!!

“Natural Beauty and Pure Relaxation at its best”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2015

The peace and tranquility that we experienced at Okel Tor far exceeded our expectation. All of our needs were catered for in a comfortable and understated manner, which is a reflection of Nick, the owner, who welcomed us on our arrival and was on hand to assist us when we requested. Wonderful walks and good local pubs.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review of The Count House. We're delighted to hear that the cottage exceeded your expectations, you felt welcome and comfortable and enjoyed the local walks and pubs. We hope to see you again!

“Another wonderful birthday treat”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2015

Stayed for a weekend in The Count House, really cosy and comfy, complete with Christmas tree. Great to drink tea in the morning and look out over the river Tamar. Wonderful location for a pre-Christmas chill out.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. We're delighted that you had anther enjoyable birthday at Okel Tor and look forward to welcoming you back!

“The best Birthday .... EVER!!”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2014

We stayed in The Smithy just before Christmas for my birthday and absolutely loved it. We arrived in the dark and woke up the next morning to a view of the mist over the Tamar Valley which was spectacular. There was a Christmas tree in the house too which was a lovely touch. This little place is a real gem, so peaceful, cosy and warm with wonderful views. We've already booked again for this year.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your birthday so much! We look forward to welcoming you back in December 2014!

“If you need to relax, it's here”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2013

Just got back from a weekend away at Okel Tor and I have to say that I couldn't be happier. If you are looking for a quiet, cosy weekend away then this place will tick all the boxes. Due to putting off my booking too long we actually got to stay in both cottages on the same visit and both are as good as each other. They are well set out and comfortable places to stay, the Smithy has a slightly better kitchen but that doesn't mean that you can't cook in the Townhouse (we certainly did). It is just a short walk in to Calstock which has a lovely local pub (The Boot Inn) and a very useful shop. A word of warning, there is no wifi and no phone reception at the cottage so when you are getting away from it all, you are really getting away from it all but thats a good thing in my view. I can't wait to come back here soon.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. We're delighted to hear you enjoyed a relaxing stay in both The Smithy & Count House. Many guests like the fact that the mobile reception is poor so they can get away from it all! You can pick up Orange/T-mobile/EE in the garden and occasionally inside the cottages, but we have the landline phones in each cottage which guests can use if they need to. We look forward to welcoming you back!

“Absolutely lovely”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2013

We enjoyed two nights at The Count House, the perfect place to relax and unwind. We had a warm welcome from the owner, and found everything we needed at the cottage. The scenery was beautiful - lots of walks and fresh air. I wouldn't arrive after dark as the drive down to the house is not for the faint hearted! and take slippers as the flagstone floor is cold!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review of The Count House - we're pleased to hear that you found the cottage and location perfect for relaxing and enjoyed the scenery and walks. Thank you also for liking our Facebook page - we look forward to welcoming you back!

“Pure serenity and relaxation”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2013

A perfect cosy hidey hole ideal for couples in a peaceful location, but within walking distance there are a couple of pubs. Stunning views across the valley.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Trip Advisor review - we're pleased you enjoyed the tranquility and views at Okel Tor and hope to see you again.
