Follow the Mural Trail and take a Cornish pasty back to your holiday cottage or holiday rental home in Callington, Cornwall

Callington is a small ancient market town situated in southeast Cornwall, which is the most westerly county in England. It is home of Gingsters Cornish Pasties and is internationally famed for its mural trail. Although there are many other art colleges in Cornwall, such as St Austell, Falmouth School of Arts and Truro College, there has never been anything like these murals attempted before. There is a Tamar Valley Scene, The Eclipse, Callington in Bloom and so many more beautiful murals painted by the students of Callington Community College.

Places to holiday in Callington

Callington is not a typical Cornish holiday destination, as most people are drawn to the coastal towns of Newquay, Perranporth, Polzeath and Bude for the surfing, or the pretty ports of Looe and Polperro, Fowey, Padstow. Others want to visit the most southerly points of the UK and the surrounding areas such as Penzance, the Lizard and the Isles of Scilly. Hotels and guest houses have catered for family holidays for many years in these popular destinations.

Yet Callington has a great deal to offer and self catering accommodation is the new way to explore the area and take in the trendiest of resorts as well. Callington has many holiday cottages and estate agents in the area receive as many enquiries for holiday homes and cottages, as they do for houses for sale. Cottages give you more freedom to explore and offer a real home from home experience.

Callington is a town with a past and the Heritage Centre and Museum is situated in the old chapel on Liskeard Road. It attracts thousands of visitors each year and its interest extend to all facets of the economic and social history of Callington and the surrounding parishes of Bere Alston, Pengelly, Coombe, Trehill, Saltash, Tavistock, Menheniot, Liskeard and Launceston.

Things to do in Callington

Callington lies to the east of Bodmin Moor and is an area popular with walkers, cyclists, horse riders, nature and birdwatchers alike and to the west is the ancient market town of Launceston. Launceston is a mix of elegant Georgian architecture and medieval ruins surrounded by lush woodlands. Sites close to your cottage include the Holmbush Mine, Dupath Well and Morwhellam Quay. Other places to visit include Launceston Castle, Cotehele Manor and the Tamar Valley Line with its unusual viaduct at Calstock. Canoe Tamar gives you the chance to explore the valley by water in an open topped Canadian canoe. Calstock is well known for organic gardening and the ideal place to pick up local product to take back to your holiday cottage.

The Tamar Valley Trail covers thirty miles and Kit Hill Country Park's four hundred acres includes the highest point in the valley. If you are looking for somewhere special to eat Langman's restaurant is hard to beat. The Springer Spaniel is a delightful country pub and VG Deli in Launceston sells organic local Veg, sun drenched antipasti and flavoursome cheeses.

                                                              Superb holiday

                                                              Came for a short holiday because it had a pool and fishing. Very surprised at how nice it was inside and out. Fishing was good. If anything there are too many fish in the main pond, but the second one was a bit more challenging. Pool was very nice and enjoyed the swimming treadmill. Highly recommended

                                                              Lovely home from home

                                                              Robins Nest was a real treat to visit. It was well equipped and welcoming, felt like a home from home. Great base for visiting the area and Dee and Robin have taken great care to recommend lots of great places to visit. Lots to see and do in the area for all the family. We will be visiting again. Simply wonderful.

                                                              Large family get together & there was something for everyone. Fishing was perfect (right by the main cottage), kids loved the donkeys & play areas & games room. We all loved the China Fleet club. Even though weather was cold, we felt warm all the time. The owners were really helpful on advice for restaurants and beaches (Seaton was lovely!)
