Charming single-storey cottage tucked away in the quaint village of Metherell, an ideal place to stay for anyone seeking a peaceful break

Located on the border of Cornwall and Devon, this is an ideal base for touring both the north and south coasts and all the many treasures in between. From your doorstep there are a host of walks that lead you through the Tamar Valley, with its World Heritage status, and the rugged Dartmoor National Park.

The historic town of Tavistock with its pannier market isn't far away and offers a wealth of restaurants, pubs, shops as well as cinema and swimming pool.

You can relax in the cosy and welcoming lounge, with TV/DVD and snuggle up in front of the charming traditional wood burner. The dining area is pleasantly situated by the double French doors which lead out onto the patio. Moving across to the kitchen, you will find everything you will need including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Just off the lounge/kitchen/diner you will find the comfy double bedroom complete with TV and en-suite shower room with WC.

Stepping outside from the living area, you can relax and unwind in the delightful enclosed garden with patio area, garden furniture and BBQ. You will also have access to the large shared exercise paddock for pets, and even a hot and cold outdoor shower for dogs. There is ample off-road parking available just outside the cottage for cars.

We had a wonderful week at The Lantern. They location was ideal for us as we like the quiet of the countryside, yet were central to all the fab hamlets and coastal walks that Cornwall has to offer. The cottage was well set out, comfortable and the outdoor seating area was good to have. We travelled with our dog and had use of the hosts paddock whicRead moreh was a great addition. We would definitely return here if we plan another trip to Cornwall Hide

It was perfect for us as a couple wanting a relaxing break with our dog. The owners were friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The extra outside space for our dog was brilliant.

As the accommodation was built specifically for the purpose of holiday letting it ticks virtually ever box. The property is excellent for natural light and the immediate surroundings are green and verdant. Although next to the house the cottage is private and the hosts friendly and helpful without being in any way imposing. Perhaps worth noting thaRead moret for this part of the world the WiFi was impressive. Hide
