Why stay here ...

Our CL is a tranquil site, set on a small holding in the countryside, which is part of the Tamar Valley A.N.O.B Cornwall. Adults, children and pets are all welcome. The site        itself stands on its own at the top of a large field, this is flat with electric hook ups,  and plenty of space. There is also a separate toilet and sink. The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area, with Cotehele House and walks through stunning countryside, all within easy reach. We have a Donkey park which is a 10 minute walk away and you can also take an organised canoe trip on the river Tamar. We have two Public Houses in the village and they both serve food. The near by town of Tavistock  (which is in Devon and only 10 minutes drive) has Supermarkets, resturants, Historic Buildings an indoor Panier market, a Cinema, Swimming pool and Tennis courts. There is a bus stop nearby and the Railway Station to Plymouth is one mile away. The train from Cornwall into Plymouth takes 45 minutes and takes you over the Calstock Viaduct. We are very close to the Cornwall and Devon boarder, you can reach Lands End (the tip of Cornwall) in under two hours, the Eden Project in 45 minutes, so you can see we are very central.

All weather track now installed.

Great Owners /Decent site

South View
All, Stayed at South View single axle caravan 2 occupants Aug 2021. Easy place to find [dont use sat nav]. Easy access into a large field [not the campsite] along a track past some rustic farm machinery/vehicles. The CL field is fairly large plenty of room for 5 set ups. Surrounded by hedges which restricts the view...but also protects the field from wind [you cant have both]. A water tap and grey waste in the corner for all to use as is the recycle area for waste. Electric hook ups on the edges of the field. No shower[s] but being built right now....single toilet..a second being built right now too i believe. No pot wash [not sure if one is being built?]. Chemical waste yes. Would we stay again........yes we would defo...great owners Chris [and Knikki]...great location for sight seeing/walks/NT locations/shops/fuel. No WIFI [not that I knew of]. 8/10 It worked great for us. Thank you guys....

A Peaceful and Relaxing Stay in the Tamar Valley

South View
Myself, my husband and our dog have just spent 8 nights at South View and we can heartily recommend this small, friendly site. The owners, Niccy and Chris were super friendly and helpful, taking time to chat and provide information about all of the local beauty spots and walks. The camping field was enclosed by bird friendly hedging and trees, providing a serene feel and plenty of birdsong. There is a handy water tap in the field along with bins and recycling facilities. The toilet and sink is closer to the entrance to site and was always clean and equipped with plenty of loo roll. We loved the local area; if you like walking, kayaking or cycling, there is plenty to explore within the local vicinity to keep you busy for a week! The walk from site, down a wooded stream to Calstock (such a stunning place) was simply beautiful as was walking to Cotehele (National Trust property) and around its grounds. Kayaking on the Tamar was a great experience, we put in at Cotehele Quay and paddled to Morwellham Quay - make sure you get the tide times right! Further afield we walked on Dartmoor and visited Looe. If you wanted more trips out, there are plenty of fabulous places accessible from the site but in the current climate, we were more than happy to enjoy the glorious local scenery. We enjoyed Tuesday Steak Night at the local Carpenter's Arms, fish and chips from Dave's just outside Gunnislake and the food and beer from the Tamar Inn in nearby Calstock which is sited right on the quay and has glorious views of the river. Thanks Niccy and Chris for a lovely holiday and for making us and Meg so welcome!

Lovely site and lovely owners

South View
We stayed en route to west Cornwall and what a discovery. The countryside is stunning and there’s so many places to explore that we HAVE to return. It’s a peaceful site and the owners are really welcoming and helpful.

Super hosts and a tranquil field

South View
We've just had 9 nights at South View, it was wonderfully peaceful and in the perfect spot for us to visit both Cornwall and Devon. During our stay we managed to fit in visits to the following places: Cotehele NT property, a cliff top walk from Talland Bay to Polperro, The Carpenter's Arms in the village, a cliff top walk from Port Quin to Port Isaac, Tintagel, Torpoint, Port Wrinkle, Plymouth, Totnes, Paignton, Torquay, Truro, Tressilick NT property, Boscastle, Launceston and Kit Hill. The owners Chris and Nicky were very welcoming and friendly. They keep the field extremely well and mow the grass regularly, it has hedging all around it and it's a great suntrap. The recycling and rubbish area is extremely tidy and neat. The toilet and basin were kept very clean and there was an abundant supply of loo rolls, bleach, Domestos sprays, liquid soap, handwash gel and paper towels. If you ready this Chris and Nickly, thanks for a great stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and not having to use the caravan loo just made it even better. It was great to talk to you and hear about the alterations you are planning, your pond is looking fantastic.
