Discover the Extraordinary

Awarded best Luxury Rural Retreat Bed and Breakfast in Cornwall, Sandhill House is the perfect countryside retreat to escape and enjoy exclusive accommodation in the heart of the breathtaking and ‘hidden’ Tamar Valley.


Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and World Heritage Site, this select Bed and Breakfast is the ideal gateway to explore the Tamar Valley’s natural environment and its ‘world changing’ heritage. Dartmoor National Park is on the doorstep, with wild Bodmin Moor and the historic Naval city of Plymouth, no distance away. In addition, Sir Francis Drake’s historic hometown, Tavistock, is less 10 minutes drive away. Sandhill House is also ideal for exploring National Trust and Royal Horticultural Society properties, or for business if you prefer to avoid the 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 a great mine owner’s ‘Manor’. It has recently under-gone sympathetic refurbishment with facilities including sumptuous king size beds and beautifully appointed en-suites. There is an extensive breakfast menu choice, offering the best ethically and locally sourced produce, served in the Georgian dining room.

Self-catering Barn

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

With the stunning Tamar Valley Railway Line, at the end of the carriage drive, Sandhill House is the perfect place for walkers and cyclists exploring Devon and Cornwall. Alternatively, you can just take an exhilarating journey to Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth or take a beautiful river boat trip down the Tamar River, from Calstock, have a wonderful meal at the Barbican and take the train . 

Real Relaxation

You are welcome to relax in the tranquil, horticultural ‘treasure trove’ gardens. We regret that extensive ornamental ponds make Sandhill unsuitable for children. There are also our dogs here to ‘meet and greet’.
