Planning a trip to the Tamar Valley?

Launceston is a great place to base yourself to explore the Tamar Valley but if you want to get out of the city and be close to the wineries, here are three suggestions for accommodation with soul, right in the heart of the valley.

Glamp It Up

Wingtons Glamping, Clarence Point

Nathaniel and Graham, the charming hosts of this newly opened venture, say this is camping the way it should be. Lockable safari tents with Persian-style carpets and luxurious queen-sized beds evoke the glamour of a 1930’s Grand Tour.


House Party on the Riviera

Beachside, Beauty Point

Built in 1950 and lovingly cared for by the present owners, this is a house with plenty of character and lovely views over the Tamar River. Make the most of the record player & vinyl collection then slumber on in one of the three bedrooms.


Farm Stay Chic

Wines for Joanie, Sidmouth

Owners Prue & Andrew O’Shanesy have sheep, grow grapes and run their cellar door on this picturesque property. They’ve renovated this cute 1940’s cottage so you can enjoy their delicious wines and fall into bed.
