In 2000 and 2001, some of the remaining buildings and all of the chimneys were consolidated and the shafts made safe as part of the Tamar Valley Regeneration Project. New paths enable you to walk through the site and view many of the original mining buildings and features.
The Count House was the mine captain's office of the mine where the ore was assayed and the miners were paid. The Smithy was where the miners tools were repaired. The cottages are about 15 metres apart and screened from each other with vegetation, both are Grade II Listed and situated in an elevated position within approximately 16 acres of natural woodland and lowland heath on the banks of the River Tamar with beautiful views of Devon. There are a number of interesting ruins and an abundance of flora and fauna.
The Smithy offers central heating and a log burning stove, 1 double bedroom, and 1 shower room, open-plan living room with sofa-bed, flat screen TV, music system with iPod dock, kitchen and dining areas. There is a south-facing covered verandah enjoying views across the river.

The cottages are situated within 16 acres of woodland - access is via an unmade public bridle path which is suitable for most vehicles. The cottages feel quite remote yet are only a short walk from the village of Calstock. There is WiFi, albeit slow, and limited mobile reception - the best network being EE.
