Welcome to the
Tamar Valley
National Landscape

The Tamar Valley National Landscape (a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is located on the Devon & Cornwall border.

It is a special landscape that is defined and shaped by the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Lynher, and by the human activity focused around them. The area is famous for its mining heritage landscape and market gardening history, and is a haven for wildlife.

A team of dedicated staff and volunteers run projects and coordinate work to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Tamar Valley.

By learning a little more through this website, about what we’re doing to keep the Tamar Valley special, we hope you will join us in whatever way you can in looking after this treasured place.
