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.

This is a lovely place to stay. Indoor pool and grounds were great. Cottage itself spacious comfy and warm.

But the largest cottage Hawthorn has a lounge with seating for 16 as well as a dining table that we could all (just about) fit round. Loved having our own pool and hot tub & even managed a couple of sessions in the gym. The hosts were very helpful. All in a great trip. See separate review for Hawthorn cottage on its own

We spent many nights sitting outside enjoying the peace and quiet. There are plenty of walks for the dogs. We enjoyed using the pools however they did close at 5 pm except a Wednesday which was 8pm. The Manor House did not have entertainment which didn't bother us too much as we tended to be out and about till late. However the girls would have liked it open for wifi! A great base for travelling around to see everything however was 3/4hr drive to the beach (season is a good beach for the dogs)and seaside town of looe, which is lovely, the beach here is not dog friendly,but lovely, however all the pubs cafes etc seem to allow dogs.There are a few pubs within walking distance (30mins)for a nice meal and drinks sitting in a beer garden and callington is only 7 mins away by car for tesco and takeaways. We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great holiday but be prepared to drive (a sat nav is good) as not much near. Everywhere around here is very dog friendly which surprised us as not so much in Glasgow! Would definitely recommend seagull lodge and think it is one of the best properties within the holiday village definitely one with the best views and privacy but near a play park and tennis courts, would definitely go back here if travelling as far south again.
