Saltash lies on the Cornish bank of the River Tamar and has road and rail links via the Brunel Bridges to Plymouth. Local shops are situated in the town centre with two superstores located at the Carkeel roundabout. Infant, junior and senior schools are available together with doctors' surgeries and dentists. The town is well served with leisure facilities, including access to two golf courses with leisure centres attached and there is an active sailing/rowing club.
Albert Cottage is a splendid and beautifully presented detached Georgian cottage situated in the older part of Saltash within two minutes walking distance to the local shops and the Tamar River. The house dates back to circa 1780 and was known as 'the Mayor's House' and it has been part of the towns' history since then. During the Second World War American Soldiers were billeted in the house and there are many period Georgian and Victorian character features which have been preserved and enhanced. There is a versatile annex/barn which in the past was used as the town's veterinary surgery.
