A warm welcome awaits you at
Tamar Views Bed & Breakfast
Penny, the landlady of Tamar Views.

Gunnislake is the first village in Cornwall, situated in the Tamar Valley, (designate an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

The village has three pubs, two of which serve excellent food, two general stores, a Post Office, and a bazaar - which sells the most unusual things, amongst several other shops. You’ll also meet William The Miner sitting on the seat opposite the traffic lights.

We offer 3 very large comfortable family sized rooms all with en-suit, colour TV’s, central heating and tea / coffee making facilities. Rates are £25 per person per night, with discounts available for long stays. We are pet-friendly - well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Although you cannot see the River, two of our rooms have superb views across the Tamar Valley, (there are several trails to help you discover the Tamar Valley which start in Gunnislake). The Gunnislake to Plymouth train service (the Tamar Valley Line) is one of England’s most scenic railway branch lines.

The dining room.

The Ancient Stannery Town of Tavistock is just a few miles away and well worth a visit. The birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, whose statue stands prominently overlooking the town. The tavy river runs through the meadow area in the town centre, which is also home to bowling greens, tennis courts and a children’s play area. Further along the meadow there is a swimming pool and the Wharf centre, which incorporates a cinema, theatre and exhibition hall. The main street has many quaint and interesting shops and there is an indoor pannier market open every day except Monday and Sunday.

If you lust after the larger shops and stores Plymouth is 17 miles away, and has a great selection of things to see and do. The Barbican, The Hoe, The National Marine Aquarium and the Plymouth Pavilions, with its fun pool and ice rink, to name but a few.


One of our spacious rooms.

The wild and beautiful moors are just beyond Tavistock, with their wild Dartmoor ponies and sheep roaming freely – a great day out for everyone.
