Calstock


Calstock is a friendly rural village in Cornwall located on the River Tamar in the heart of the Tamar Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a lively community, and a well kept secret! The village has a rich history due to its port and deposits of; tin, silver, copper and granite and is a Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. The boat yard is still active today, located under the iconic viaduct, as the river is navigable from Plymouth at high tide.
