Full description

The charming village of Calstock, mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086, is in an area of outstanding natural beauty located on the upper reaches of the beautiful river Tamar. The picturesque riverside village is a popular with tourists, yachtsmen and ramblers. From Calstock, there is easy access to the moors and beaches and nearby Callington is approx 6 miles and Gunnislake 2 ? . In the season there is a river ferry to Plymouth and boat cruises from Calstock Quay to nearby Cotehele House (the jewel in the crown of the National Trust). Just upstream from Calstock is the now famous tourist attraction of Morwellham Quay, a bustling Victorian Cornish heritage village depicting the history of tin mining in the 18th century. The village of Calstock has a charm of its own with many bijou cottages and period houses. Whilst being a popular tourist area, Calstock and surrounds are also a sought after exclusive commuter area for the city of Plymouth (22 miles) and the market town of Tavistock (7miles). The Boot Inn is reputed to have been built over 400 years ago and was converted from cottages into a pub around 1875. The Inn stands in a prominent position in pretty Fore Street just a short walk from the Quay and the main village car park and green. The property has been subject to much renovation and improvement in the last few years and is now a pub of character and charm with many interesting features. The present proprietor, who took over at the end of last year, chooses, because of other business interests, to trade only Tuesday to Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtime . The turnover for the first 6 months trade has been approximately £75,000 excluding VAT. There is undoubtedly scope for new owners to trade longer hours and thereby increase the revenue dramatically. Adjacent to and connected to the pub, is a period cottage, the renovation of which has been completed. The cottage could provide a further source of income as a holiday let or Bed & Breakfast accommodation, or alternatively be used as owners accommodation.

BUSINESS 
The Boot Inn is a traditionally run family hostelry. The business is run by a husband and wife who operate the pub on traditional hours for lunchtimes and evenings, six days a week and opening Monday evenings only. The Boot Inn has a great reputation for a 'proper' cosy pub, serving a good selection of real ales and fine wines which is complimented by the home cooked food with a regularly changing menu, taking advantage of year round availability of locally sourced produce. Sunday roasts are particularly popular and the Boot Inn is testified by the excellent Tripadvisor reviews on line. The Boot Inn is run very much to suit the current owners who trade below the VAT level although here is huge scope for the new owner to push this trade if they chose to. In its present format it is a lovely life-style business, situated in this beautiful part of Cornwall, close to the Devon border. Further trading information will be provided to bone fida interested parties...
