Tamar View Cottage Description

‘Tamar View Cottage’, an 18th cent terraced cottage in a picturesque setting on the banks of the Tamar river in Calstock village 5 miles from Callington, South Cornwall and 8 miles from Plymouth. 16 miles to beaches at Whitsand Bay & Portwrinkle. Calstock is renowned as an exceedingly pretty and unspoilt victorian village, the holiday cottage being down by the river & quay with lovely views over the Tamar Estuary. The setting is enhanced by the spectacular aquaduct, many colourful sailing boats during the summer and the steep wooded valley sides sloping down to the river. A truly scenic setting with some beautiful sunsets over the water. Tamar View Cottage is a hundred yards from the waterside Tamar Inn with restaurant (good food)and the Riverside Cafe and waterfront.Views over the river from bedrooms 1 & 2. A great favourite with walkers; lovely walks along the estuary, leading from the cottage, in both directions. Amble down to the riverbank & try fishing in the river for trout. Take the riverside walk (about 1 and a half miles) to National Trust Cotehele House, gardens and Quay. Other interesting places in this highly scenic locality,which is part of the beautiful Tamar Valley. Cotehele House, Weir Quay, Morwellham Quay are all within easy reach. The cottage is the brown pebble dashed cottage in the photo next to the white cottage,with the white chimney visible above and has a tiny front patio area with gate and seating. During the summer the pleasure steamer comes up once a day landing the passangers on Calstock quay. Holidaymakers tell us they have taken the scenic train ride from Calstock to Plymouth in the morning and returned by the pleasure steamer in the evening.
