Great Day Out

We had a lovely day out here. So much to see. The walk around the area is free so that is what we did. We also took a picnic so the only expensive is the car park fee. The house, mill and car park are free for National Trust members or £10, £6 and £5. The grounds are well signposted to walk round and it is mostly level. Nice shop and cafe too.

Nearest town

Calstock (1 mile)

Perched on the banks of the great Tamar River, the historic waterway that divides Devon and Cornwall, Calstock is a pretty village full of whitewashed cottages that tumble down to the water’s edge. The skyline is dominated by an imposing viaduct that spans the river; an endless stream of boats of all shapes and sizes sail through the arches throughout the day. It is impossible to visit Calstock without getting on the water at least once – try a trip on the Tamar Passenger Ferry – a lovely open wooden boat which plies the river between Calstock and the National Trust’s historic Cotehele Quay.

Also nearby

Cotehele (1 ½ miles)

A medieval house in amazing condition, with fabulous collections of armour, textiles and furniture from the period. The estate is open daily from dawn to dusk throughout the year, dogs are welcome in the grounds and there's miles of woodland paths and countryside to explore.

Stoic British carried on in AWFUL weather!

Wonderful House, Gardens, grounds and shops..AWFUL half term weather, but we braved it all! NB the house has NO electric lights so visibility in the house is limited on dull days!. Mill lovely and the walk down from the house through the gardens and past the chapel to the quay side and then the mill was lovely....a little slippery in places as it a little steep in parts and was SO wet..but we all remained upright! Lovely Cornish ice creams at the Quay and great bread flour can be bought at the mill shop. Hurrah for the VERY helpful and lovely mini bus driver who can ferry any less able bodies around the 3 sites...

Cotehele is a beautiful National Trust property - I recommend walking the wider estate, including the folly behind the property which gives you a bird's eye view for miles! The walk down through the quay to the mill is stunning, and the waterwheel and mill race is currently being renovated, which is an interesting project. You can even buy flour that has been milled on site.

A medieval gem with a magical garden sloping down to the Tamar. Plenty of walks on the Estate. Highly recommended are the scones at the restaurant on Cotehele Quay - just the thing at the end of a stroll along the river.

Morwellham Quay (1 mile)

You will find plenty to keep the family entertained here at this award winning World Heritage site. There is a historic port, copper mine, Victorian farm, railway, heavy horses and museums of costume and mining all set within 200 acres.

Morwellham (1 ¼ miles)

A living, breathing riverside village circa Victorian times. It's beautifully preserved and you can visit the open air museum, restored quay and visitor centre.

Free entry into this village reclaimed from decay. An insight into the industrial heritage of the Tamar Valley. You can take a ride in a carriage or go down a mine in a little train, dress up in 19th century costume, visit a working farm. The Ship Inn has recently been taken over by chef Peter Gorton and offers very good lunches. An evening visit to the restaurant is an eerie experience - Morwellham is utterly deserted except for visitors to the Inn.

Morwhellam Quay is a facsinating living museum tucked away in stunning countryside. The underground mine train trip is to be recommended - but it is cold underground, take a jumper! The shop offers the usual range of visitor gifts, and some lovely books and local products. Food in the restaurant is good, but it does get busy. In the summer a picnic overlooking the river is idyllic.

Tree Surfers Tavistock (1 ½ miles)

Tree-top ladders, rope bridges and zip wires to get the adrenalin pumping.

Fantastic woodland experiences for everyone.

Everyone can enjoy tree surfing, mountain biking, walking, cycling, running and horse riding along miles of well maintained trails, set amongst the ruins of the tin mining era. A wide variety of walks from level to more challenging take in stunning scenery between the Tamar river and Morwellham Quay.
