Calstock is a lovely lively village located on the banks of the River Tamar.
The village is fortunate enough to have two pubs that both serve great local food as well as playing host to live music and events. You can also take a short scenic walk from Calstock to Cotehele House and Gardens, the nearby National Trust property – see below for directions.
The riverside village of Bere Ferrers is just a 10 minute walk from the station. The village has a great local pub and some lovely local walks.
Plymouth is the gateway to Cornwall and the Tamar Valley. The station is well placed for access to the University and the main shopping centre.
Plymouth’s historic waterfront area is only a 15 minute walk from the station where you can imagine Francis Drake taking in the same views as he looked out on the Armada.
If you fancy a quiet pint over-looking the river then look no further than the Tamar Inn. The pub dates from the 17th century and was once the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen.
Good local food, real ales and regular live music all go to make this a great pub to visit on a day out. You can also combine it with trips to other fantastic pubs as part of the Tamar Valley Rail Ale Trail.
Cotehele is a Tudor House perched high above the River Tamar.
