Make a holiday cottage in Calstock your home away from home

Calstock is a charming village, located on the River Tamar between Tavistock and Plymouth. It is located in southeast Cornwall on the border with Devon. Its waterside location has always been to its advantage and boats that used to ferry cargo (including mined silver) have now been replaced by pleasure crafts, overlooked by a viaduct and the popular Tamar Inn. HomeAway holiday cottages in Calstock are the perfect base camp for exploring the idyllic surroundings of the Tamar Valley on a romantic break.

Holiday cottages in Calstock are also an excellent choice when the whole family is travelling. They can sleep between five and eight people and there are many pet friendly options available. Compared to surrounding areas, Calstock holiday apartments come in at half the price of those in historic Liskeard. Many of the available properties come fully kitted out with all modern appliances and TV/DVD/Freeview entertainment in each room. They also feature beautiful gardens and on-site parking, just a few minutes’ walk away from the village shops and pub.

Things to do

-Heritage attractions: The Tamar Valley Line is a revived branch line that takes visitors along 14 miles of the Tamar River’s edge. Although it provides practical services for commuters and schoolchildren, it is also a wonderful excursion for travellers and exceptional value at less than £6 per person. HomeAway also offers holiday rentals in Gunnislake at one end of the Tamar Valley Line and Plymouth at the other.

-Entertainment: The Calstock Arts Centre offers musical, educational and social activities, as well as performance and arts year-round, for both local residents and visitors taking advantage of holiday homes in Calstock. The converted chapel where it operates dates back to 1910. Entrance is free, but donations are accepted. Any profits raised are used to support and maintain this historical centre.

-Family attractions: The Tamar Donkey Park offers something for all the family to enjoy. Located just three miles from Calstock in St Ann's Chapel, Gunnislake, this amusement attraction features donkeys, goats, sheep, rabbits, pigs and guinea pigs that kids can feed and pet. There is also an indoor play area. After all that activity, there is food and refreshments on site and souvenirs available at the Donkey Bazaar.

-Outdoor activities: Tree Surfers is a family adventure opportunity in the heart of nature. It features a canopy trail that has zip lines, Tarzan swings and even a leap of faith. The whole family can also rent mountain bikes and explore 30 kilometres of woodland trails, or try their hand at archery.

-Historical attractions: A favourite with visitors to Calstock holiday homes is Cotehele, a nearby National Trust site. There is an exhibit called “Life in the Past Lane”, which sets the scene nicely for exploring the ancient Tudor house, and relaxing and dreaming in the impressive gardens. Cotehele is also home to the oldest domestic clock still in its original position.

Weather in Calstock

Like the rest of Cornwall, Calstock enjoys a temperate, oceanic climate. It is among the sunniest areas in the UK, but still manages to have a fair amount of precipitation. December is the wettest month, while July is the hottest, with temperatures averaging over 16°C. February will see the coldest temperatures, averaging 5.5°C.

Travel to Calstock

Being just ten miles from Plymouth there are plenty of options to reach holiday homes in Calstock including train and national coach services. Driving is preferable as this means having transport available to fully explore this lovely area of England. Roads directly to Calstock are minor country class but the main roads of the area are only a short distance away.

Idyllic hideaway equipped with everything you need.

5 of 5
This beautiful home was everything we were looking for and so much more. Set in a secluded wood at the top of a hill, which is a 10 minute stroll from the local pub and plenty of walking routes nearby. We took our black lab Harvey who is arthritic but had no issues with getting around. The home itself is beautifully furnished making it a really inviting place, the ground floor has large windows allowing you to view the gardens from every angle. Little extras such as the ‘welcome basket’ and cosy blankets for enjoying the evenings outside were really appreciated. The wood fired hot tub just a few steps from the house was a real treat. I’d find it difficult to describe how beautiful the setting is and couldn’t think of a better way for stressed out pair to unwind. The owner Graham has thought of everything to make this a perfect place to stay. We liked the information in the welcome book about the history of the house.

Stunning cottage

5 of 5
Wow the ultimate cosy cottage. Mark and Tracey can not do enough for you. We arrived late evening to a wood burning fire, and candles lit. Ultra romantic and cosy. The spa just makes the experience perfect and great after a day or exploring.
