Almost an island within a county, this unique swathe of land lies between the Rivers Tamar and Tavy, which join to the south and are only separated by a narrow section to the north. Rich farmland contrasts with the dramatic Dartmoor background and the mild estuary influenced climate has made the area a haven for birdlife. In recent times the peninsula was a thriving centre for market gardening, before that mining dominated the area.

Thought it was a little high with all the competition out there but did not look elsewhere as you had an office in the village.

Sophie and Trish are what all estate agents should be like. They don't pester you; they listen to you without talking over you; when viewing a property they let you use your eyes without blathering on, but are there to answer queries, give you useful ...

Trish did not seem to be able to negotiate fees, this was done by Dan at the Yelverton Office. Because of fees we initially went to 2 other estate agents.
