Comfort Wood Cottage is a former barn adjoining Newton Farm near the Cotehele Estate, which enjoys a delightful, rural outlook and a private garden. Walking directly from the property, visitors can enjoy numerous walks through the idyllic, adjoining woods which lead to the beautiful Tudor Cotehele House, Quay (tidal slipway provided), gardens and 1,200 acre estate, all owned by the National Trust and open to the public. Further, the village of Metherell is within easy walking distance and offers an excellent local pub. The Tamar Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a world heritage site, provides a wealth of archaeological and historic interest with its fascinating history of mining and trading along the Tamar River. The pretty and vibrant village of Calstock is situated 1.5 miles away and has further hostelries for eating and drinking and within 15 minutes drive is the well known St Mellion Golf & Country Club. Other activities available include canoeing and on and off-road cycling, which the owners will be happy to arrange. You will even be greeted by delicious homemade cakes or a bottle of wine on arrival.
Newton Farm is an organic Cornish small holding run on a Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall ethos. There is a flock of Lleyn sheep, bullocks, horses, chickens and Cornish black honey bees. Organic eggs usually available for sale. To find out what goes on at the farm check out www.newtonfarmcornwall.com.

Property reviews for Comfort Wood Cottage
We really liked Comfort Wood Cottage and had the most restful relaxing week there. The walk to the Cotehele Estate was lovelyl as was the National Trust property. So pleased we gave Toad Hall a second chance after the less than perfect week at Rock Lea, Aveton Gifford last year. The properties could not have been more different. It was a part of Cornwall that none of us had visited before and an area we hope to visit again in the future. Thank you so much for a perfect break. Comfort Wood Cottage is most certainly a wonderful hidden gem.
