Escape to the Country at Sandhill House

Sandhill House in Cornwall is the perfect bed & breakfast countryside retreat to escape the ‘crazy world’, and relax in the heart of the breath-taking ‘hidden’ Tamar Valley.

Discover the Extraordinary

Set in The Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Devon and Cornwall World Heritage Site, this select Bed and Breakfast is the ideal gateway to explore the Tamar Valley’s outstanding, natural landscape and ‘world changing’ heritage. Dartmoor National Park is on the doorstep, with wild Bodmin Moor and the historic naval city of Plymouth, no distance away. Sir Francis Drake’s historic hometown, Tavistock, is less than a 10-minute drive away. Sandhill House is also ideal for exploring National Trust and Royal Horticultural Society properties or business, if you prefer to avoid big hotel chains.

Sandhill House and the self-catering Tamar Orchard Barn are exclusive but relaxed retreats.

The elegant and enchanting Grade II Listed Georgian home was the ‘Manor’ of the great mine owner in the 1800s. We have recently upgraded the house with facilities including sumptuous King size beds and beautifully appointed en-suites. The extensive breakfast menu is based on the best ethically and locally sourced produce and served in the Georgian Dining Room.

Self-catering Barn

The ‘dinky’ and ‘dog friendly’ Barn, set in our two-acre gardens, offers total seclusion and tranquility with a private, south-facing garden.

The stunning Tamar Valley Railway Line is at the end of the carriage drive, making this the perfect place for walkers and cyclists exploring Devon and Cornwall.

Alternatively, you can take an exhilarating rail journey to Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth. Take a relaxing riverboat trip down the stunning Tamar River, have a special meal on the Barbican Water Front and let the train take the strain’ home’.

Real Relaxation

You are very welcome to relax in the tranquil, horticultural ‘treasure trove’ gardens. We regret that extensive ornamental ponds make Sandhill unsuitable for children.
