The Count House


A unique self catering cottage for two on the banks of the River Tamar


Just above the tidal waters of the River Tamar, nestled amongst the trees on the south facing bank, lies the Count House. Steeped in history and surrounded by nature, it is a peaceful riverside retreat that exudes calm and cosiness. Over the years it has had many uses, but has now been lovingly converted into a quiet and comfortable hideaway, filled with artwork, photos and books from another age.

"Perfect place to sit still and do absolutely nothing while watching the tide go out .. and come back in again. Wonderful hosts, relaxed atmosphere and licence to switch off from the world .."
