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.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eNearby Torcross looks across the river towards Devonport, which, like Plymouth, is accessible by ferry.

Cotehele in the heart of the valley was once home to a thriving quay and flickering lime kilns, and today it makes a great place to explore without the car. The quayside is always a good place to start as you can enjoy a leisurely lunch in the Edgecumbe Arms and have a closer look at the historic barge, Shamrock before setting off.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe gardens are a beautiful example of how the area would have dazzled in the days when mining made the Tamar Valley a bustling hub of activity, and they set off the river views to perfection.

The house has more than its share of tales and legends woven into its history, and the many textiles and tapestries found inside bring them to life for visitors. The walls are draped with imposing tapestries, the tables shine as though ready for guests and the whole building feels as though its influential owners might return any second.
