    “The park was lovely and quiet and ...”
    The park was lovely and quiet and away from traffic. It had a nice sized pool and there was plenty of room for kids to play, with a playground, tennis court, football pitch, badminton net and ping pong table. The accommodation was lovely and clean and in a modern country style. It was spacious inside with all mod cons. There was plenty of kitchenware enabling us to cook and a pub approximately a mile down the road.

About the location


Plymouth 6 miles; Liskeard 14 miles.

Saltash is dominated by the magnificent Tamar Bridge, Brunel’s masterpiece of engineering taking people from Devon to Cornwall across the Tamar River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Saltash retains much of its old Cornish charm with narrow streets rising steeply from the banks of the river, and plenty of shops and interesting inns. From the old quayside there are river trips up stream to Calstock, a pretty village with white cottages on a steep hillside. Here, the 120 foot giant 11-arched Calstock Railway Viaduct towers above the River Tamar and carries one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines down to the coast. Saltash offers some beautiful walks along the Tamar, and is only a five minute drive from Plymouth, with a plenty to occupy visitors including the historic Barbican quayside area with cafes, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium and several theatres. A perfect base for exploring the area along the beautiful River Tamar.
