Property Description

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.

Detached, contemporary, stylish property with full-length glass walls, oak and stone elements. High vaulted ceilings in living/dining room with French doors to large sundeck. Contemporary kitchen, slate floor. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower cubicle, toilet.

  1. Great location with amazing views of the river Tamar and a fabulous garden. Peace, quiet and restful. Plenty to do in the surrounding area providing you have transport. Very comfortable accommodation with everything we could have needed. May 2012.
  2. Property had 3 cottages.Wi-fi access was a feature of properties but could only be accessed within one cottage. Oct 2011.
  3. After a wonderful welcome we settled in to the beautiful location immediately. Some wonderful suggestions from the owners helped us find some fantastic quiet spots and avoid the crowds. I could not recommend this property highly enough for a relaxing break. Beautiful views, quiet unspoilt location and the owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Aug 2011.
  4. Ideal for visiting most areas of south Deven. Views to die for. The Garden Ideal if you have children and good weather, pool looks great but unable to use! Great walking area with good food in the pubs. Do not miss the Four N.T. houses in the area. The owners very helpful. May 2011.
  5. Peaceful and quiet. May 2011.

  10. Very well presented contemporary/country property in very good condition. Beautifully well kept grounds and personal garden. Aug 2010.
  11. Idyllic. As soon as you opened the gate into the garden you knew that it was going to be a home away from home. The dogs thought that they were in 7th Heaven as well! Only used to decking and chippings normally, now they had grass with a great big tree in the centre to chase one another around. Bryony, the owner was always available but never intrusive. Her sponge cake though is to die for. Sod the diet, you are on holiday. July 2010.
  12. The property was large for a 2 bedroom property, very light and airy with excellent views. July 2010.
  13. Very clean, comfortable, private and stylish, as well as extremely dog friendly and relaxed. Fantastic views and garden. Lovely hosts who were always on hand if needed but never intrusive. We found nothing that we could fault. May 2010.
  14. Cleanliness, equipment and the views. May 2010.
  15. The property is beautifully situated with spectacular views of the Tamar Estuary. It was immaculate both inside and out and was very well equipped. The gardens are very well kept and available for our use. The owners are extremely welcoming and friendly, both to us and to our dog. May 2010.
  16. Excellent views over the Tamar Estuary, accessability to both Devon and Cornwall and good walks for us and the dog. Feb 2010.
  17. The cottage itself was great, as was the situation. Oct 2009.
