The Olive Tree is suitable for guests who are without transport or prefer a "greener" holiday. There are abundant scenic walks in the immediate vicinity and we are a mile from bus routes which take you to Liskeard, Tavistock, Launceston and Plymouth. The Tamar Valley line, regarded as one of the most beautiful in the country has trains operating between Gunnislake (5 miles away) and Plymouth. This can be linked in with ferry transport on the Tamar river.
M5 to Exeter, A38 to Plymouth, continue on A38 over Tamar Bridge into Cornwall (signposted Liskeard), about a mile over the bridge you come to a big roundabout, turn right on the A388 signposted Callington which is about 10 miles away. Stay on the A388 as you go through Callington (signposted Launceston), as you come up the hill out of Callington you will pass the Community School on your right and then see a telephone box on the left and a left fork in the road signposted Maders. Just after a mile along this road you will come to the hamlet of Maders and the Olive Tree is the second house on the right hidden behind the cream wall and hedge, turn up the driveway at the far end of the hedge and we'll put the kettle on!
