A Local's Guide to Saltash

Saltash is generally the first and last place you encounter on a trip to Cornwall; being located on the western banks of the River Tamar it is found right on the county’s natural border with Devon.

Romantic things to do in Cornwall

With its breathtaking scenery, slower pace of life and relaxed atmosphere that feels a world away from the everyday, Cornwall is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, if only for a dreamy long weekend. Wake up to the sound of the waves, enjoy breakfast in bed and visit some of the county’s most idyllic spots together.

A perfect position

Visitors flock to Saltash because of its perfect position on the border of Devon and Cornwall. The town makes a great base for an all-round holiday experience. Pack buckets and spades for a trip to the sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay or enjoy a ramble across Bodmin Moor.

Fancy taking to the water? There’s a small pier where you can enjoy a leisurely cruise or catch the ferry for a fun day out in Plymouth. Saltash’s centre is a thriving hub for shopping and eating with many pubs and restaurants. The Cardinals Hat, The Ploughboy Inn and The Brunel Inn are particularly worthy of note.

The historic houses of Buckland Abbey, once the home of Sir Francis Drake, Cotehele, a fabulous Tudor house and the remains of the miniature Norman keep of Trematon Castle are all within easy reach.
