Traditional country pubs with exposed beams, roaring log fires, cosy snugs and a well-kept cellar. Dog-friendly beer-gardens, fabulous views over rolling countryside. A welcoming host with a wide range of wines and beers. Affordable, hearty, locally nurtured food.
Or for something uniquely different, the Tamar Valley Rail Ale Trail - a scenic 14 mile journey through the Tamar Valley AONB through stunning countryside and over the magnificient Calstock Viaduct. With 14 pubs along its length, serving real ales in characterful settings, feedback is effusive and enthusiastic "Fantastic idea...excellent initiative.....fabulous time...great ales...visited all 14 pubs". What more can one say but - Try it!
