Brimming with original features, The Old Coach House is situated in the Tamar Valley AONB just outside the pretty village of Calstock.
A true countryside retreat, this former coach house is homely and welcoming, with timber beams, rustic stone walls and a cosy wood burner.
A stay here is all about escapism, embracing a slower pace of life and spending time enjoying the simple pleasures.
On the ground floor is a country-style kitchen diner with stable door, from where, steps lead up to the lofty sitting room.
On this level, there is also a calming double bedroom, comfortable single bedroom and an immaculate bathroom.
Outside, a small terrace with picnic bench offers an idyllic spot for a sunny lunch or barbecue, with far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.
It’s easy to lose yourself in the bucolic tranquillity of The Old Coach House, but if you do want to venture out, there are plenty of sightseeing opportunities nearby.
Enjoy long rambling walks or bike rides through the picturesque Tamar Valley, visit the maritime city of Plymouth with its range of shops and attractions, or head down to the coast and discover miles of white sand at beautiful Whitsand Bay.
Split level accommodation. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x single. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Lounge. Kitchen diner on lower level.
About the location
Gunnislake 3 miles; Tavistock 8 miles.
Calstock is a village in Cornwall, although it stands on the meandering River Tamar close to the Devon border and is dominated by the spectacular Calstock Viaduct, a giant 11-arched structure that still carries the railway line above the River Tamar along the picturesque branch line down to Plymouth. Calstock has been an important quay for centuries, transporting tin, copper and granite out of this important mining area downstream to Plymouth Docks. Today Calstock is a quiet village with a vibrant arts centre attracting musicians and artists from around Cornwall. A mile downstream brings you to Cotehele, a well-preserved medieval National Trust house with glorious gardens sweeping down to the River Tamar. Upstream from Calstock is Morwellham Quay, another important river port and now a living history tourist attraction where visitors can explore a copper mine by taking a train deep underground, admire the working Victorian farm or just quietly enjoy the beautiful Tamar Valley wildlife.
