Surrounded by the glorious Cornish countryside of the Tamar Valley, a holiday cottage in Calstock is a great choice for a relaxing break in Cornwall. This pretty village lies on the banks of the River Tamar, right on the Devon border. As you wander through the narrow streets, you’ll see stone cottages clinging to the sides of the valley and a variety of interesting independent businesses. Look out for ruined engine houses on the outskirts of the village, a reminder that Calstock’s railway was once the area’s most important means of transport. For a pint of local cider, head to the Tamar Inn, a cosy 17th century pub in the heart of the community, overlooking the village green. A magnificent railway viaduct overlooks the Calstock, with 12 60ft arches and a height of 120ft. A number of other beautiful historic landmarks in the village mustn’t be missed, including Cothele, a unique Medieval house with gardens, a quay and a working water mill.


Comfort Wood Cottage is a sophisticated barn conversion sitting on the 1200-acre Cotehele Estate in Cornwall. The pet-friendly cottage is surrounded by farm & woodland, & offers generous outdoor entertaining areas in lovely gardens, walks from the front door, plus contemporary style and a log fire.

Self-catering holidays in Calstock are a great choice if you’re planning an active break. The village is in the heart of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where some of Devon and Cornwall’s least developed countryside is a paradise for walking, horse-riding, sailing, surfing and wildlife-watching holidays. The fields, woods and meadows around the village are crisscrossed by scenic paths, where you can walk for miles with only the sound of birds in the hedgerows for company. Calstock holiday cottages are ideally located for making day trips along the south coasts of Devon and Cornwall, where sandy beaches, rocky coves and ancient fishing villages can be enjoyed. Portwrinkle, Seaton, Looe and Polperro are all a short drive away. With its excellent shopping and food scene, the city of Plymouth is also well worth a visit.
