Situation The west Devon village of Bere Alston lies to the south west of Tavistock, in an area known as the Bere Peninsula between the tidal estuaries of the Rivers Tavy and Tamar. The undulating and picturesque peninsula is renowned for its mild climate with its southerly aspect and stunning rural and waterside views. Weir Quay is an outlying hamlet of the village right down on the water's edge. The commercial history that gave birth to this small community has all but disappeared with only the boatyard remaining surrounded by about a dozen houses and cottages along the shoreline. It enjoys a westerly aspect across the tidal stretch of the River Tamar looking across to the Cornish bank. The boatyard gives immediate access to the foreshore and water from where trips up and down the beautiful River Tamar provide endless recreation. Here the river is wide and deep allowing all water moorings and safe dinghy sailing. It is about 5 miles by boat downstream to the Hamoaze and Plymouth Sound. The property lies within an area designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the estuary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest of particular importance as a wintering ground for wildfowl and waders. The area is served by a train station in the village of Bere Ferrers on the Tamar Valley Line to Plymouth, where connections can be made with main line services. Bere Alston has several shops, doctor's surgery, primary school and other local amenities. The market town of Tavistock lies approximately 7 miles to the north where there are a selection of schools, specialist shops and supermarkets.
