RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Wow what can I say, we have the most amazing stay at tuckermarsh cottage, everything about it is beautiful including the views. Everything you need is there. The next door neighbour Frank was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our evenings eating tea on the decking admiring the gorgeous views. The cottage is beautifully layed out and very very clean, it made us feel very homely. I have read on other reviews problems regarding the access to the cottage which was not a issue what so ever for us and we have a Vaxuhall zafira 7 seater and had no problems. I would 100% recommended tuckermarsh to anybody you will not be dissapointed, thank you for making our holiday so amazing x
WOW. What an absolutely lovely cottage in the most spectacular and beautiful setting. The garden goes all the way down to the rivers edge where you can enjoy watching some amazing nature. Ignore the other negative comments about the access. I drive a mondeo Estate and had no issues with crossing the bridge. The cottage has everything a family needs to spend a week there and there is nothing wrong at all with the shower. The walks from the cottage are great. The trip on the train over to Calstock is good and we had a meal in the Tamar Inn which was lovely. Morwellham Quay just a short drive away is a must. Frank next door at number 1 is a lovely bloke and very helpful. He was there to greet us and even helped unloading our car. He gave us loads of info as to where and what to visit. This is a proper break away from the hussle and bustle of everyday life and having no WiFi meant we actually spoke to each other as a family instead of having our head buried in gadgets all the time. All in all you must come and stay at this beautiful cottage.
Hair raising access
I usually begin reviews with the positives but I'm going to break with tradition here, because the major issue with this cottage is the access.
The cottage is reached down a mile long lane which is barely a car's width in some places, although there are some small passing places. The worst bit, though is when you have almost reached the parking area. Before this is a narrow and rather rickety 'sleeper' bridge, with a sharp right turn off it. Local people just shrugged their shoulders when we mentioned we found the access difficult, but it was quite telling that many had cars with a few scrapes and dents. We were told, with some glee, that it wasn't unknown for people to come off the bridge and end up in the stream beneath. We didn't actually think this was too funny.
The cottage itself is OK. It's an ex miner's cottage so is small and atmospheric. There is a washing machine but no dishwasher, and no WiFi access. The woodburning stove is a welcome feature.The beds are comfortable. The shower is rather feeble, and the drainage from it is not good.The garden is delightful and leads down to the river Tamar. One review I read said there was a pub/restaurant about a mile away, which may be so, but meant negotiating the bridge and lane again, so we gave this a miss. You can access the pub on foot but it's a steep upward climb on a stony track.
This is a beautiful and comfortable cottage in a really beautiful and quiet setting with plenty of walks to choose from. Just off the edge of Dartmoor a good location as a centre for visiting sites of Devon and Cornwall.
We adored the cottage and location and we will book again.
