Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016


We stayed at The Bothy from 10-14 September. It is a charming and tasteful restoration of a former gardener’s cottage in the beautiful grounds of a large mid-Victorian house. The sympathetic restoration retained the original character of the exterior and quaint cobbled courtyard: the inside has been decorated and fitted out to a high standard. The Bothy is very private and tranquil. It is located a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the village of Calstock which has a thriving arts community and usually something going on throughout the year. There are two pubs in the village which serve good food as well as traditional beers. There are also many walks in the area (eg Kit Hill, Cotehele to name just two) and the train station, linking Calstock to Plymouth, is a couple of minutes’ walk from the rear of the grounds, accessed by a private door to the footpath to the station. Although it is close, the train is not noisy. The owners, Malcolm and Lauren, were welcoming and helpful. All in all, the Bothy has much to commend it. It’s ideal for a secluded romantic getaway to a beautiful part of the world. We look forward to our next visit.

“Born Again Bothy”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
person found this review helpful

My wife & I were delighted to find this charming old Bothy brought right up to date. Lauren & Malcolm have made a wonderful job of saving this old potting shed & turning it into a charming 1 bed cottage. We used it as a base for a week whilst we explored Devon & Cornwall. The Bothy has been finished to a very high standard & sits in a huge garden to the main house, it even has its own gate access to the local train station of Calstock, how cool is that?

Wonderful stay at the cottage nestled within beautiful gardens. The hosts were warm, welcoming & very knowledgable on local history, culture, walks. The cottage itself is clean, tidy & comfortable with a little fireplace. Perfect accommodation for a romantic getaway, we will be back
