  • "+ve Very spacious, 3 double bedrooms and a single."

    Big TV in lounge. Washer and dryer very handy. Off street parking great for a small car. Well positioned with a Spar literally just around the corner. Train station walkable. 10min train to Plymouth. Paignton, Totnes, Looe, Tintagel etc all within an hour’s drive -ve Road outside is busy and can be noisy at times. It’s an old property and smells damp.

  • "Fair Mead Cottage was perfect for us, and for our stay in Saltash."

    It was comfortable, warm, and much more spacious than it looks from the outside, or indeed the pictures of it would suggest! The kitchen was well stocked, and the appliances were straightforward to use and worked fine. Nearby there are at least three well stocked little grocers, with friendly staff, and where you can get emergency supplies or indeed breakfast croissant should you like! Many thanks to the owners for an easy and happy stay.

  • "This is an excellent property, very cosy and comfortable: We felt at home instantly."

    The location is great to visit South Devon and East Cornwall. The shop and take-away nearby made it easy after long days out, and the owners were very helpful. Overall the cottage had a real charm and we would go back again.

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.
