Wilson Cottage 

Truly an escape from reality

Wilson Cottage feels remote but is easily reached, being just half a mile off the A386 three miles north of Tavistock on the Okehampton Road.

Near the village of Mary Tavy is the most fantastic countryside and walking on the moor to enjoy. Other local activities include horse riding, cycling, fishing, gliding or even just enjoying a pint of local real ale in one of the many cosy country pubs. 

The historic market town of Tavistock is just 10 minutes away, where there is a fabulous pannier and farmers' market. Head across the moorland towards Okehampton, or visit the natural waterfalls at Lydford Gorge or Brentor Church, before heading to the north Devon and north Cornwall coastline.

Some other activities to keep you busy include:

  • Sample the many local pubs and award winning restaurants.

  • Enjoy car free days out with the local bus service into Plymouth or take the local train with stunning views over the Tamar Valley.

  • Route 27 Cycle way is nearby along with the Granite Way, Tarka Trail and Drakes Trail which all offer easy cycling along entirely traffic free former railways and paths.

Wheal Betsy

Wheal Betsy is an old Engine House just beside the A386 between Okehampton and Tavistock just outside Mary Tavy. In the 17, 18 and 1900 this area was very important as a mining centre. The mines yielded tin, lead, zinc and silver. Wheal Bestsy is also well known for its leaning tower. The site is in an exposed position so received strong gusts of wind and rain, over the years the National Trust have had tore point the tower and stabilise the walls to ensure it doesn’t fall down.
