Sandhill House Country Retreat

Sandhill House is the perfect countryside retreat to escape to and enjoy select bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of the breathtaking Tamar Valley. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Site, this select B&B Cornwall is the ideal gateway to explore the fantastic natural environment of the Tamar Valley and its world changing heritage, Dartmoor National Park, Bodmin Moor and historic Naval city of Plymouth. In addition Sir Francis Drake's hometown, Tavistock, is less 10 minutes drive and both the rugged north and sandy south coasts being just 30-40 minutes away. It is also ideal for exploring several National Trust properties, or for business if you prefer to avoid the big hotel chains.

Historic Sandhill House and the self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn are exclusive but relaxed retreats. The elegant and enchanting Grade II Listed Georgian home was originally the great mine owner, John Williams', 'Manor'. Recently restored to it's former glory with facilities including king size beds, beautifully appointed en-suites, free wifi, and Freeview TV/DVD and hospitality trays. There is a breakfast menu choice, offering the best ethically sourced produce, served in the Georgian dining room. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept dogs in the house because of our own, who are not on 'general release'.

The self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn, set in the 2 acre gardens, is dog friendly, offering total seclusion with a private, south facing garden. Please ring 07713 077877 to enquire.

With public transport, including the Tamar Valley Railway Line, at the end of the carriage drive, Sandhill House is the perfect place for walkers and cyclists and for those wishing to walk to the local pub! . Other local activities include tree-surfing and canoeing on the beautiful Tamar River.

Guests are welcome to relax in the tranquil, horticultural ‘treasure trove’ gardens. We regret extensive ornamental ponds make Sandhill unsuitable for children.

 Peaceful and tranquil a delightful setting with beautiful views over the Tamar Valley. We were greater on arrival by the owner and welcomed us with a lovely pot of tea. Couldn't be more helpful and friendly.
