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 ½. 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) with regular train and bus connections.
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 including a new roof, rewiring and refurbing and is now a pub of character and charm with many interesting features. The present proprietor chooses because of other business interests, to trade only Tuesday to Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtime. There is undoubtedly scope for new owners to trade longer hours and thereby increase the revenue dramatically.
