Our guide to Torpoint & Saltash holidays
Situated on the Rame Peninsula and known as the 'gateway to Cornwall', Saltash connects Devon to Cornwall by rail and road. Saltash is accessed via a suspension bridge engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and opened in 1859, which crosses the River Tamar. The bridge is an attraction in itself, a feet of engineering and graceful design, and can also be crossed on foot. Saltash is an ideal base for exploring the counties of Devon and Cornwall.
Nearby Torcross looks across the river towards Devonport, which, like Plymouth, is accessible by ferry. The quaint twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are nearby, with superb views across the estuary to Plymouth.
