The Little House is a detached cottage in a pretty riverside village with views across the open countryside and down river. This is the perfect retreat for active couples who enjoy cycling, canoeing and walking, or for those who are just in search of picturesque settings, quiet rambles and visits to the local pub. Set in the pretty riverside village of Calstock, in the heart of the Tamar Valley (a quiet area of Cornwall close to the border with Devon). This is an area rich in beauty and history, possessing some of the finest scenery in the West Country. The valley is marked by ancient towns - Launceston in the north with its Norman castle and Tavistock to the east is a gateway to Dartmoor – and historic buildings such as Buckland Abbey, the former home of Sir Francis Drake. Launceston, once the capital of the old Duchy, is the gateway to Cornwall. It is quintessentially Cornish, with its Georgian houses, narrow streets and market square. Launceston Castle dominates the surrounding landscape - perched on top of a large, natural mound - in a strategically important position controlling the river crossing in and out of Cornwall. Tavistock lies below the slopes of the Dartmoor National Park just over the border in Devon. It is an exceptionally attractive town owing as much to some fine Victorian architecture as to its picturesque location on the banks of the river Tavy. The Campaign for the Protection of Rural England rates Tavistock as the Best Market Town in the country. Reputed to be the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, his statue within the town is the original of the replica to be found on Plymouth Hoe.
