SITUATION Located in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Tamar Valley is known for its awe inspiring scenery. The property sits peacefully above the river, just along from Greystone Bridge, making for an ideal vantage point of which to observe the abundance of wildlife which resides on its banks including Kingfisher, Peregrine, Falcon and Otter. Greystone Bridge is a Grade I Listed medieval bridge built in 1439 using local stone and incorporating eight arches in to its design. This ancient crossing point over the River Tamar has historically carried traffic using roads between Launceston in Cornwall and Tavistock in Devon on the route which is now known as the B3362.

Located approximately 4 miles away is the town of Launceston. Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

Access to Plymouth, Exeter, Truro via road are all within an hour's travelling time. The city of Plymouth offers sea and rail links being approximately 29 miles from Launceston. The city of Exeter has rail links and an international airport being approximately 40 miles from Launceston.

Located approximately 9 miles away, Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional attractions include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.
