Spotlight on a Tamar Valley Tourism Member : Kingsmill Farm Cottage

Wake up to birdsong in this waterside cottage, nestled in unspoilt countryside, on the banks of a sleepy creek of the river Tamar, at the heart of the Tamar Valley AONB, yet only 30 mins drive from Plymouth. 
Kingsmill Farm Cottage is located in a wildlife reserve, and is a delight for nature lovers, with an abundance of birds and other wildlife. The surrounding 5 acres include a variety of different habitats - a wildflower meadow, large freshwater pond, and undisturbed wooded areas, providing additional habitats to the saline tidal creek. This has attracted an abundance of wildlife -  buzzards, owls, ducks, herons, swans, little egret, grebe, cormorant, kingfishers, badgers, stoats, foxes and deer. The cottage is ideal for birdwatchers, photographers, painters, and naturalists, as well as walkers and lovers of the peace, beauty and tranquillity of the countryside – and all from a convenient, stylish and comfortable base.
Quiet and private, the cottage is just a few meters from the banks of the tidal creek, with uninterrupted views of the water, oak woodland and fields beyond.
Despite its peaceful and secluded setting, Kingsmill Farm Cottage gives easy access to essential amenities. It is only about 10 mins drive from Waitrose and Lidl, 15 mins from Saltash with its thriving high street, and 30 minutes drive from historic Plymouth, with its numerous attractions.
Sleeping up to 6, with 3 bedrooms, and 2 bath/shower rooms, the cottage is fully furnished and very comfortable, with WIFI and oil fired CH plus wood burner stove. Well behaved dogs are welcome, and the enclosed garden is stock fenced. There is free parking for up to 3 cars.
Available all the year round, the cottage is popular for holidays, short breaks, staycations, and longer lets off season. Faithful visitors return year after year, but other guests have included people needing a temporary home while commuting to Plymouth, during a house move, or when visiting local friends and relatives.
