The property is very well equiped for a family stay. Spacious, lots of books and plays, badminton, croquet and more. A really secluded, lovely big garden.
Situated almost on the Hamar river bank it also has lovely views.
It is remote though. We got problems with the car and then you can be a bit stuck. Far from everything except for walks 😉
But we can really recommend the North Ward cottage. Comfortable. Nice fresh eggs from the neighbour. A good place to unwind and relax. Nice beds that give a good rest.
Sheviock is in the "forgotten corner" of Cornwall. The Rame peninsular is easily missed having crossed the Tamar in to Cornwall on the A38. The closest shop is in Crafthole some 3/4 mile away. Torpoint is the main shopping centre.
Being a peninsular there are many waterfronts and interesting places; our favourite was Kingsand and Cawsand. The Rivers Tamar and Lynher, with many inlets, make it a long way round by road to Plymouth but the day is saved by the ferry from Torpoint.
Looe is only 10mile/20min. away
Tawny Cottage is a modern conversion of an old farm building and is ideal for a couple(although sleeps 4); one bathroom/toilet is only a problem if every one wants to use at the same time.
The open kitchen/living area was not a problem(for two of us) and all facilities were available including a freezer which I do not recall being mentioned in the general description. We were lucky with the weather and the outside table and chairs were used in the evening. There was ample car parking space.
We received a warm welcome from Mike and Tine and they were on hand should the occasion arise. We did not get to meet Frank and Doreen.
Care needs to be taken when exiting the grounds as the gateway is on the inside of a bend and and visibility could be a problem. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend.
