Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Enchanted Wilderness, Tavistock, Tamar Valley, Devon, sleeps 2-14 in 5 bedrooms.
Sleeps 2 to 14:
Driftwood sleeps 2 - 5 + sofa bed
Unicorn sleeps 2 - 5 + sofa
Beehive sleeps 2 - 4
These neighbouring cottages are found in the most magical of places. Set next to the Tamar river estuary in the most glorious location, it is a long way from the sounds of traffic and urban life yet within easy reach of the local station and bus routes.
Driftwood Cottage can sleep up to 7. There is a king-size bed, with another single bed in the room. The second bedroom has 2 singles. In addition, there is a sofa bed for 2. Our resident artist has created paintings in the style of driftwood from his imagination and some furniture and furnishings are made from driftwood.
Unicorn Stable has a king-size bed in the main bedroom. A second bedroom has a double bed and a single. Our artist has created some magical creatures to complement the Unicorn Stable.
Between these cottages is a party barn that has a wood-burning stove, sofas, a music system and a table large enough to seat up to 12 guests (and up to 20 with prior notice).
The Beehive is a cosy tiny house with a double bed, and also a single bed and a bunk bed that is suitable for agile adults. A stone's throw from the river and surrounded by trees, it's the epitome of living in harmony with the environment.
All dwellings have views of the river and estuary, as well as the surrounding countryside shared only with a few sheep and the wild animals and birds that visit us daily. A footpath passes close to our property where you can walk for miles along the riverside. NT Cotehele is just across the river, NT Buckland Abbey, Morwellham Quay, Burrator Reservoir are close by.
The cottages are believed to date back to the late 17th, early 18th centuries. The river was once the highway to Plymouth taking local produce up and down it. You can enjoy the river too - bring your own small boats and kayaks. You can also fish for salmon, sea bass, and sea trout up and down the river (subject to seasons and licences). A resident seal visits us occasionally and you may be lucky enough to see an otter or fallow deer.
We can also give you a short tour of our bees, weather and time of year dependant.
