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.

Weather in Callington

Callington's climate is mild in line with the rest of Cornwall, but if you are travelling to the north Cornish coasts it will feel slightly cool if the north wind is blowing.

Ideal for a family break. Well equipped. Very comfortable and good sized bedrooms. Access to main bathroom via bedroom not ideal and hallway very small but didn't cause us problems. Met owner on arrival.......very friendly and helpful. Secure garden good for dog. Convenient for both North and South Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor. Reasonably priced. Would recommend.

                                                                                                      We stayed here for a week over Christmas. We had between 10-12 people staying at any one time including an 18 month old baby. When we first arrived, we were gobsmacked by the house...it had been decorated for Christmas and we were greeted with huge multi-coloured pom poms and fairy lights hanging in the hallway and two Christmas trees in the living/diner. It was a wonderful surprise! The house was huge and our 18 month old had the time of his life running around and making the most of all that space. A cot and highchair were provided which was very helpful. The master bedroom was enormous and the bed so comfortable. The kitchen had everything you would need, although some feedback...some weighing scales would have been helpful. The kitchen pantry had some essential items which were useful and the fridge was definitely spacious enough to fit food for 12 people. The pantry also has a drinks fridge which freed up space in the main fridge freezer. Some more feedback...towels were meant to be included but there were none in the rooms so we had to look in the hallway cupboards. We found some but there were only just enough for us, a couple had to use hand towels as bath/shower towels which wasn't ideal but not a massive problem. We also found that the shared bathroom on the first floor flooded as it didn't have a 'lip' on the tray so during a shower the water went everywhere. Ken was really responsive and quickly fixed a broken lock in the house, excellent service considering it was Christmas eve! I won't hesitate to recommend Avery House to others. This was the first time our whole family had been together in three years - Avery House didn't disappoint in providing us with a truly wonderful place to celebrate Christmas. Thank you Anita & Ken.

                                                                                                      This was the perfect place to get away from the pace and stress of London for the new year break. My girlfriend and I drove down from London on New Year's Eve and although the roads were dark and we did mistake another cottage for this one, once we had arrived we knew we had booked the right accommodation for our long weekend. The cottage was the perfect size for the two of us and could comfortably fit a small family. The bed was huge and very comfortable and warmed up nicely on those cold winter nights. The bathroom is reached via the bedroom and we had no problems at all. The kitchen also comes fully fitted, with glassware, cookware and utensils. In the living room, there is a TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs and a small choice of puzzles and board games, which are perfect for couples and families as well as some books. One thing I would advise is to bring slippers as the living room and kitchen floors are stone so do get cold in the winter. The location of the cottage was extremely practical, with the main road from Tavistock to Okehampton close by. The cottage sits on its own is totally peaceful. Animals do come and go as mentioned in the listing. It is also a great location to drive or walk further into the park. However, a lot of the walks mentioned on the internet do fall further south and east of the cottage. This should not be much of a problem if one has a car. We spent a day and a half walking the moors and as inexperienced walkers, we were lucky to have a wonderful day of sunshine and clear skies to tackle one of the easier walks from Princetown. We also took a day trip to Cornwall, with Land's End a two hour drive away, on another gloriously sunny day and this is also a perfect option for those who wish to see a different type of beauty on their trip. The hosts, Helen and Robin, were friendly but not intrusive. The welcome pack of biscuits were much appreciated. Finally, my girlfriend and I must thank them once again for helping us to jump start our car after a particularly cold night. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of a break in this part of the country to seriously consider this listing. It is a cosy retreat in acres of space. Again, the perfect getaway for two city dwellers to escape from it all.
