Luxury self-catering accommodation in Gunnislake

Perched on the border of Devon and Cornwall, where the River Tamar narrows and curls, this old mining town offers valley walks and river fun.

The former mining village of Gunnislake flaunts history and greenery for guests seeking an accessible weekend away. Just off the main roads that cross the county line, the village has well-stocked shops and pubs to keep you in supplies for the many walking routes around the verdant terrain. Following the pretty pathways along to Chilsworthy, just east of town, the ramble takes in a non-tidal quay and old engine houses; keep a lookout for osprey, barn owls, spoonbills, peregrine falcons, beautiful kingfishers and the occasional dragonfly.

Surrounded by water, aqua enthusiasts will want to hire a canoe and paddle down river, past stunning banks of beautiful scenery. The route takes in Morwhellam Quay; stop off for a look at the Mine & Craft Centre to read about the rich history of the area. Children will love the fun underground train ride, and adults will appreciate a side visit to the brewery (bottled ales sold in the local shop). Back in the canoe, Calstock is a great place to haul in, a lovely river village with sweet cottages and shops lining the narrow streets, and its own 120-foot tall viaduct.
