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.

The setting is very pretty and the cottage is nicely furnished and very fresh. Mark and Tracey are very welcoming and their daughter quickly collared our son for a play around the property with some friends; he felt right at home immediately. And then there's Nelly, the family bundle of white fluff -- she's a cutie...a dog by the way. I booked the cottage for my family during the week of my birthday so on the day and after a trip down to The Minack Theatre (a must) for an afternoon performance, Mark (a chef with a lovin' touch) prepared a very special birthday feast for us in the evening with some of my favourite things -- yum! Can't recommend this property enough...haven't even mentioned the sauna and hot tub yet. Book and find out!
