The River Tamar
On the Cornish side of the River Tamar. Devon is across the water. As is the case with Calstock, Gunnislake is a superb location from which to the explore the AONB, its nearby National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an internationally important maritime city and one of South West England's finest bays.

The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
It's fashionable to publish articles on 'secret gems' or 'hidden gems' within the UK travel media. Having spent years travelling, researching and photographing South West England, we'd argue that this is the region's best kept secret. Whilst it's extraordinarily beautiful, it's also home to some top historical and cultural goodies. So, if you're into the great outdoors and history then seriously consider a holiday here.

UNESCO World Heritage Site
Morwellham Quay is part of the fascinating Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

We'd also recommend visiting the National Trust's Cotehele House and Gardens, Buckland Abbey and Antony House.

Walking
Walk part, or all, of the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail. There's nice walking in nearby Kit Hill Country Park. The views from here back to Dartmoor National Park are superb. Clearly, there's some fine walking available in the National Park. On the southern fringe of the Tamar Valley AONB, try also the South West Coast Path.

Stunning coastline
The South West Coast Path will take you through some exceptional coastline. Whitsand Bay is one of our favourites. The area around Cawsand is a delight.

Nearby attractions
In addition to the attractions above, we'd suggest day trips from the Tamar Valley AONB to Plymouth and Looe, Tavistock and Fowey. Plymouth is an internationally important maritime city with a compelling story.

The Eden Project is a Cornwall must-see and the National Trust's Lanhydrock House and Gardens a beauty.

Explore Dartmoor National Park and discover the South Devon AONB.
