Visiting the Tamar Valley

The Tamar Valley is a wide wooded river valley reaching from Bodmin Moor to Dartmoor, from the beaches of East Cornwall to the towns of West Devon, dotted with ancient mines, Tudor houses, stunning gardens, and rivers to explore and fish.

The Tamar Valley brings together fishing, mining heritage, sailing, gardens, art, canoeing, and eating out with accommodation from hotels to holiday cottages, from B&B’s to camping and caravanning, all along the River Tamar, from North Cornwall down past Plymouth to the Rame Peninsula. 

Families will find the most relaxing, flexible holidays here in the beautiful AONB with something to suit every family appetite for adventure, budget and thirst for the great outdoors. 

The area is also a dog lovers dream with plenty of dog friendly accommodation on offer across the huge national park as well as pooch friendly pubs, restaurants, attractions and days out to enjoy. 

Couples won’t be stuck for ways to spend a little quality time together in the Tamar Valley, whether hunkering down in a cosy self catering cottage or accommodation together or building a holiday filled with outdoor fun for two.  There is something for every couple. 

Those looking for an accessible holiday to enjoy won’t be disappointed in the Tamar Valley either. A hugely diverse range of accessible accommodation options, things to do, places to go and days out to enjoy await everyone who wishes to enjoy this beautiful part of the world.
