Cottage Holidays in Tavistock

Communities have thrived in Tavistock for millennia. The remains of prehistoric stone circles and dwellings are visible on the moors above the town, which endured plunder and pillage by Vikings, plague and Civil War. Despite these tribulations, the town flourished, especially in the 16th Century when Tavistock-born Sir Francis Drake found favour with Elizabeth I. Its architectural heyday was in the 1800s when money from local copper mines was used to build elegant shopfronts, an imposing Town Hall and a stylish Guildhall, all of which are popular with visitors today. Start your exploration at the Visitor Information Centre in Court Gate on Bedford Square before browsing the stalls in the Pannier Market, specialist antique and book shops, galleries that showcase local artists past and present, and a farmers’ market voted the Best in the South West.

Many of the visitors enjoying a holiday in Tavistock come for the plentiful walking and cycling opportunities. Drake’s Trail links Tavistock with Plymouth, with walkers and cyclists sharing the 21-mile waymarked route that starts in the centre of town and heads out along the canal. Tavistock is on the 99-mile long Sustrans Route 27 which encompasses Devon’s coast and countryside, including sections along the River Torridge and the western border of Dartmoor National Park. Mountain bikers have the opportunity to test their skills on the Tamar Trails where there is access to 25-miles of MTB trails of varying degrees of difficulty.

Local attractions nearby include the Neolithic monuments at Merrivale - a great spot for a picnic and peaceful contemplation, and the Tudor house Cotehele that is managed by the National Trust. Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre has 45,000 square feet of beautifully colourful rides and games from a bygone era, while at Morwellham Village you can see one of the mines that made the region’s fortune. Countryman Cider has brewery tours and a shop selling their delicious scrumpy direct to the public, and beer drinkers can tour the Stannary Brewing Company instead. Plymouth is just half an hour away with an exciting day of museums, shopping, history, food and culture, or take time to explore picturesque Devon villages and towns like Lustleigh, Salcombe, Noss Mayo and Ottery St Mary, all of which are within an hour’s drive.

Tavistock remains a favourite holiday destination in every season not only for its welcoming community and excellent amenities that make self-catering simple but also for its landscape that is as beautiful as it is diverse. Energetic visitors can be as active as they please with plenty of opportunities not only for walking and cycling but also for climbing, caving, fishing, golf and horse riding. Foodies can eat their fill of delicious produce grown in the fertile soil of the area’s farms, while historians can delve into their favourite era thanks to museums and landmarks.
