SITUATION Located close to the pretty Cornish village of Calstock, nestling in the heart of the Tamar Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is rural but not isolated and is within easy reach of local amenities.


Calstock is a popular village, ideally situated for the sailing enthusiast, having its own quay and mooring facilities. The village has adequate shopping facilities, two public houses and a thriving village hall which offers a range of activities and entertainment. A doctors' surgery and post office are at nearby Gunnislake (2 miles distant). The railway station, which is within easy walking distance, provides a regular train service into Plymouth city centre (approximately half an hour by rail and 20 miles by road). The bus stop directly outside the property serves both Tavistock (approximately 8 miles away) and Callington (approximately 6 miles distant), and the service also pass both the Calstock and Gunnislake railway stations. Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor are also easily accessible. There is a primary school in the village and a school bus service to Callington Comprehensive School. The scheduled bus service to Tavistock is used by pupils travelling to Tavistock College. 

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival. Plymouth is only 15 miles away from Tavistock with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.
