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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The garden and field which was available to the occupants of Boxwood, would have been a wonderful addition if the weather had been better. The lounge furniture looked good but was not all that comfortable. June 2012.
  2. Well situated, if quite remote, cottage. Very clean and comfy interior and everything that you need is supplied by owner, including lovely home made cake and vase of flowers on arrival! Sept 2011.
  3. Beautiful cottage with beautiful garden. Swimming pool excellent, although its hit and miss as to whether can use or not due to weather. Lovely complimentary home baked cake on arrival. Even soap, dishcloths etc, were provided. Owners very nice and helpful. Area very peaceful and secluded but still close to all major towns. Would highly recommend. Photos do not do not do it justice. Sept 2011.
  4. The location and our own private garden area were outstanding, with lovely views over the Tamar estuary. There were interesting walks and gardens to visit quite near. This meant we did not spend too much time in the car. June 2011.
  5. Nice clean comfortable cottage. Would benefit from an upgrade to shower. May 2011.
  6. It was clean, tidy and well equipped. Oct 2010.
  7. Fantastic, comfortable, clean and spacious cottage set in a wonderful area. The cottage itself has absolutely everything you need with a welcoming homemade cake on arrival that you will eat well before the end of your stay! Sept 2010.
  8. Well equipped, clean and comfortable. July 2010.
  9. It was quiet, great views, and had everything in terms of accommodation, appliances, TVs, gardens. April 2010.
  10. Fabulous views, well stocked cottage, beautiful gardens. June 2008.
  11. Very pleased with the cottage it was comfortable and easy for us to lok after while we were there a perfect home from home. March 2008.
  12. We didn’t feel intruded upon in anyway and upon arrival the owners left a few groceries and a very nice home baked sponge cake. A very quiet cottage and very well decorated and comfortable. The area surrounding is very pleasant. Overall, a very relaxing and pleasant break. March 2007.
