 View Points

A familiar sight as you travel around the local area, Kit Hill is the highest point in the Tamar Valley, and on a clear day has fantastic panoramic views across Cornwall and Devon. 

Brentor, with its iconic hilltop church, sits on the edge of Dartmoor and has wonderful views across the moors and Devon.

Smeaton's Tower originally stood on the Eddystone Rocks, 12 miles off the coast of Plymouth. After more than 100 years of service, the lighthouse was dismantled and rebuilt on Plymouth Hoe, where you can now climb the light house's 93 steps to reach the top and enjoy panoramic views across the city and beyond. 


Our neighbours at Tamar Valley Vineyard offer tours of the vineyard during the spring and summer months, giving a great insight into the history of the vineyard, as well as the wine making process. You also have the opportunity to taste their wine too, and stock up on a bottle or two to take home!

Lydford Gorge is a beautiful National Trust site on the edge of Dartmoor. Follow the 3 mile circular route along the river taking in the spectacular White Lady Waterfall and the Devil's Cauldron along the way.  

In the historic Barbican area of Plymouth, you can wander the cobbled streets from the Mayflower Steps through to the famous Plymouth Gin Distillery. Walk up to Plymouth Hoe and take in the wonderful views of the Sound or cross the harbour to visit the National Marine Aquarium.

The world famous Eden Project is just an hour's drive from the Count House, where you can explore the spectacular Rainforest and Mediterranean biomes and enjoy a range of events throughout the year.


Calstock Arts is a fantastic local venue with a varied program which includes regular live music, cinema nights and workshops. Set in a converted chapel overlooking the river, it is a magical place to spend an evening. 

Plymouth Arts Centre is home to an independent cinema showing both new releases and classic films, and often organise outdoor screenings around the city in the summer months.
