Straddling the Devon and Cornwall border
In South West England straddling the border of south west Devon and north east Cornwall. The Tamar Valley AONB runs into Dartmoor National Park to the east and covers the area around the Rivers Tamar and Tavy. Plymouth is to the south and east of the AONB.

Rivers Tamar and Tavy
Steep hills thick with trees rise from the Rivers Tamar and Tavy. Further towards the coast, there are wide, long stretches of water in the estuary. Fine views south to the Tamar Bridges. Deserves its status as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

UNESCO World Heritage Site
Part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site, Morwellham Quay is a fascinating open air museum.

Calstock Viaduct and Calstock are magnificent. We'd also recommend visiting the National Trust properties of Buckland Abbey and Cotehele House and Gardens.

Stretch your legs at Kit Hill Country Park for amazing panoramic views of the Tamar Valley AONB, mid Cornwall and Dartmoor National Park.

The Cornwall AONB
Just to the south is one of the 12 areas that make up the Cornwall AONB. We'd strongly recommend visiting Whitsand Bay as well which is on the south coast on the fringes of both the Tamar Valley AONB and the abovementioned area of the Cornwall AONB.

Bodmin Moor is to the west of the Tamar Valley AONB.
