    • “It was a village that was full of life always plenty of people to see . There was a big sailing barge that landed at the quay stayed 2 nights and set off early morning which we saw from the cottage. There were kayakers, and several gigs setting off from the quay. Lots of ducks , lots of picnic tables families came there cos of a playground with Shamrock 2 built for the children to climb on. There was a social club and a pub opposite . Very handy for Cotehele National Trust house you can walk at the side of the river to it . Lots of little villages around and easily reach all parts of Cornwall and Dartmoor and Devon we went to Polzeath on North Cornwall and Looe in Devon rode the train from Buckfastleigh to Totnes.”

Regional Information

CALSTOCK Gunnislake 3 miles; Tavistock 8 miles. Calstock is a village in Cornwall, although it stands on the meandering River Tamar close to the Devon border and is dominated by the spectacular Calstock Viaduct, a giant 11-arched structure that still carries the railway line above the River Tamar along the picturesque branch line down to Plymouth. Calstock has been an important quay for centuries, transporting tin, copper and granite out of this important mining area downstream to Plymouth Docks. Today Calstock is a quiet village with a vibrant arts centre attracting musicians and artists from around Cornwall. A mile downstream brings you to Cotehele, a well-preserved medieval National Trust house with glorious gardens sweeping down to the River Tamar. Upstream from Calstock is Morwellham Quay, another important river port and now a living history tourist attraction where visitors can explore a copper mine by taking a train deep underground, admire the working Victorian farm or just quietly enjoy the beautiful Tamar Valley wildlife.
