About Harewood

meadowwalk Held in a beautiful bow on the Tamar River, our smallholding comprises 25 acres of pasture and woodland that was once part of the Harewood House Estate. It includes remnants of a once grand house and gardens occupied by the Trelawney family.
Harewood occupies a rich place in history that dates back to the Bronze Age. Our home was once a Hill Fort who’s foot print still rests on the land. The site of a Roman Villa and Garrison is within 5 minutes walk from our door. Across the river is Morewellham Quay once one of the most important Copper mines and Ports of the Victorian era and this side of the Tamar River is Okel Tor more mining history, that ranks this area as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In fact our home sits within the World Heritage site, it is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) a Special Area for Conservation (SAC Site) and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)

 

 

 

 

We are blessed with frontage onto the River Tamar at perhaps one of the most beautiful and tranquil stretches of the river… at the turn of the tide the surface is flat, reflective and incredibly peaceful. Up stream, the trip to Gunnislake Weir is stunning and down river is National Trust gem Cotehele House.

We have a small boat that visitors may use. Canoe and kayaking are popular on this stretch of the river and the Village of Calstock is an easy paddle down river with it’s pubs, village store and live music most weekends.

 

 

The historic viaduct provides an imposing backdrop to the village and is a reminder of the importance of the area in times gone by but Calstock is far from sleepy or hollow and is a vibrant village with a strong and active community. It hosts a Motorcyle show,  a Regatta,  Art Exhibitions and  a host of events at the Arts Centre and in the village Hall.


We Love it here and we hope you will too!
