Swimming Pool and Hot Tubs
From May to the end of September, guests can enjoy the shared used of a five metre heated outdoor swimming pool (additional charge applies). Our recently installed decking area by the swimming pool provides the ideal place to sit and relax overlooking our lovely gardens. There is also a covered seating area with barbeques in the gardens.
For guests at Beech Cottage, there is now a private hot tub available all year. We appreciate that a hot tub may not appeal to everyone, hence the hot tub is an additional facility to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity if you wish. There is an additional charge for the hot tub - see prices. Please note no children under 6 years of age are allowed to use the hot tub.
Guests at Oak Cottage also have the option of a private hot tub available from September to the end of June. The hot tub is an additional facility if you wish to use it. There is an additional charge for the hot tub - see prices. Please note no children under the age of 6 years are allowed to use the hot tub.
Wildlife and Recreation Areas
At the bottom of the courtyard a traditional 5-bar Devon gate leads to our area of tranquillity. This incorporates an orchard, children's play area, sheep and lamb paddocks, pig pens and seating for relaxation and the enjoyment of Carpenter's pure natural environment.
Keep strolling towards the next gate which leads to the River Tamar meadows. We have purposely left these meadows as a natural environment with the river, pond and woodland trails.
If you have the patience and the time is right, you can see Red and Roe deer, birds of prey soaring in the thermals, kingfishers sweeping and darting along the river, and majestic otters playing. The idyllic river setting with peace and quiet allows some good fishing, fish include Trout, Roach, Grayling and in late autumn Salmon returning to spawn.
We have a flock of sheep which we lamb in Spring. As with nature we do have orphan lambs, which gives you a rewarding chance to bottle feed them. We also have some pigs who love to say hello!
Experiencing the animals and countryside is our thing. We as a family always welcome and enjoy any help, be it assisting in feeding the animals or general countryside involvement.
We are open all year round. To see how the seasons play out at Carpenter's Tinney click here to read more - 'The Seasons at Carpenter's Tinney'
