“Idyllic”
Reviewed 16 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018
1
person found this review helpful

If your looking for a secluded, quiet getaway, then this is ideal. no traffic, no light pollution just nature and a few people as neighbours. Plenty of walks and a friendly village of Calstock near by, with good pub food especially the Tamar Inn that does some vegan food.
Have now stayed twice and will do so again without hesitation.

“peaceful, comfortable, convenient to the village.”
Reviewed 26 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We visited all the country houses, mines, cliff walks, restaurant pubs, bridal-path walks, Dartmoor walks in the area and really appreciated the Count Hours as our base, especially on those days sitting on the deck reading looking over the valley.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your two weeks in this wonderful part of the country. You certainly crammed a lot in - and still had plenty of time to relax and read. The Count House library has many new books in its collection. Thank you!

“Faultless stay in stunning location”
Reviewed 15 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We have just returned after the most amazing break away in The Count House. Nick and Jess live close by who are both so friendly. The property literally has EVERYTHING you could wish for - a real home from home and is immaculate. To wake up each morning eating breakfast out on the decked terrace was like a tranquil dream come true - all we could hear was birdsong and the view of the River Tamar/rolling hills/cattle was breathtaking. The week flew past as we enjoyed many lovely days out and the town and its people of Calstock were all so welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended if you are lucky enough to choose this beautiful place

“Idyllic location. Pretty cottage. Warm welcome!”
Reviewed 4 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The cottage is comfortable and well appointed. Nick, the owner, is on hand to give directions and details on possible excursions and points of interest. Maps and leaflets for places locally are available in the cottage.
Calstock, the village within 5 minutes walk, has two pubs and a wee coffee shop. It does not any longer provide a shop however, which can be inconvenient, as the nearest store is not within walking distance.
The cottage itself is very comfortable. It is scrupulously clean and tidy. My overwhelming impression was essentially of a no frills approach as there was basic provision of towels, tea towels and even basic condiments. While “bath towels will be provided”, was the case, an extra hand towel would make the visitor feel a bit more loved! Similarly, some fresh milk, maybe some bread/cake on arrival would be most welcome, particularly given the isolated nature of the cottage, and the potentially long journey experienced by some of us to get there.
With some additional consideration paid to things like having coffee, some basic foodstuffsn, and even a spare bin liner!, the Count House could be elevated from very good to excellent.

Thank you for your lovely review and especially your comments about how we can make the Okel Tor Mine experience even better. Although the cottages are self-catering we appreciate that providing a few essentials and a little treat can be very welcome after what may have been a long journey down. We do provide teabags, coffee sachets, dairy and soya milk mini pots - also a bag of locally made Devon fudge! We are, however, looking at being able to offer a little more but, with people's individual dietary needs and ethical stances, it can be quite a challenge. We're working on it!
We're pleased to say that we've added hand towels in the kitchen - in addition to the bath and hand towels already in the bathroom. Spare bin liners are always in the cupboards.
Again, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback..

“Great place for walkers”
Reviewed 1 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018
1
person found this review helpful

The setting is idyllic, tranquil, fabulous views, full of history. Best for walkers as I visited with my husband whose mobility had deteriorated after booking. A great retreat though. I am a writer and artist and the setting was perfect. But I found the parking is very challenging. Access is via an unmade road, then reversing through narrow gates to park alongside a drop.

Many thanks for giving us four bubbles. We're delighted that you found the location so inspiring but sorry you found the access a bit challenging. It can appear rather daunting for the first time we agree. To reassure others we would just like to say that the vast majority of our guests don't have a problem and the gate opening (at ten feet) is wider than many of the Cornish country lanes!
