Calstock, Cornwall

About us

Nestled deep in the Tamar Valley the village of Calstock is a great place to explore the surrounding countryside that borders Devon and Cornwall. Dominated by the railway viaduct that brings trains up from Plymouth on the pretty Tamar Valley Line, the village has a thriving arts community with the Old Chapel and village hall regulalry putting on music and theatre events.

From the village it is an easy drive to the National Trust property at Cotehele, alternatively you can walk along the river and through the woods to reach the house and gardens. The valley is also rich in industrial history with World Heritage mining remains dotted about the hillsides and market gardens that are famous for their soft fruit and daffodils.

At Drakewalls, just north of Calstock, the Tamar Valley AONB have an office and visitors centre.

There you can find out information about walks and cycle trails as well as the history of the area.
