Mary Newman’s Cottage

This Grade 11 listed cottage is the oldest building in Saltash, dating from around 1480: the furniture and utensils give the interior a truly atmospheric feel, and visitors can wear period clothing and play Elizabethan games. The garden is laid out in authentic Elizabethan style, showcasing the plants and herbs which were vital to a household of the period, and has extensive views over the Tamar below.
