Find out about: Mary Newmans Cottage
This Grade 11 listed cottage is managed by the Tamar Protection Society and is the oldest building in Saltash, dating from around 1480. The cottage is furnished with period furniture which is on loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum and private collections which, along with utensils on display give the interior a truly atmospheric feel. Visitors can wear period clothing and play Elizabethan games during their visit.
The garden is laid out in authentic Elizabethan style, showcasing the plants and herbs which were vital to a household of the period. The garden has extensive views over the Tamar below.
Visitors can have a guided tour of the cottage and garden, just relax in the garden, or do both. Adult and Children Group visits are encouraged, advance booking required. Visits can be arranged out of season and when the museum is closed.
