Visit Saltash Cornwall and the surrounding villages and stay in b and b, hotel or vacation rental accommodation provided by BedPosts members.
Saltash is an attractive fishing port built on a steep hill above the banks of the Tamar, and the historic gateway between Cornwall and Devon. Saltash has a population 15,000, is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. Here are two notable bridges spanning the Tamar estuary: one built for the railway by Brunel, opened in 1859 and still going strong; the other, the new suspension bridge opened in 1962 to provide a much-needed additional road link between Devon and Cornwall. Cornishmen are reputed (by Devonshire men) to leave their tails in the cloakroom of Saltash station when they cross to Devon.
The 18th century guildhall once stood on granite pillars, but the open area beneath is now closed in. The part-Norman church next to it has a fine Tudor silver chalice, and 1½ miles to the south-west stands the roofless 13th century keep of Trematon Castle which is well worth a visit.
The name “Saltash” originally derives from Old English meaning “Place at the ash tree”, the “Salt” was prepended to the name later on, because of the production of salt here.
