The Count House is a beautifully appointed Cornish holiday cottage for two offering cosy self-catering accommodation in what was once the former Mine Captain's office at Okel Tor. It’s one of two cottages, the other being The Smithy. Set in 16 acres of natural woodland, this romantic country getaway offers a relaxing, peaceful retreat in the Tamar Valley AONB & World Heritage Site.
This cosy cottage retains its traditional charm with country style furnishings throughout. In the warmer months, the pretty garden provides an opportunity to watch and listen to the local wildlife whilst enjoying a spot of breakfast or afternoon tea from the cottage’s timber deck.
Chilly evenings are just made for romantic snuggling by the log burning fire or listening to music provided by the music system, i-Pod dock and cd/radio. For dinner, The Boot Inn and the Tamar Inn are a 10 minute walk away in the village of Calstock with its local amenities.
