Things To Do in Carkeel, Saltash
The town of Saltash is known as the Gateway to Cornwall and is a short drive from Chestnut Cottage. Located across the River Tamar from the port city of Plymouth, those who arrive in Saltash by train will cross the famous Royal Albert Bridge, designed by engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and completed in 1859.
Saltash is fantastic for shopping with national chains and locally-run shops offering a wealth of places to buy everything you need.
Canoeing trips are a popular choice on the river Tamar or if you prefer to stay on dry land why not watch everyone as they set sail from the Saltash Waterside where you’ll find cafés, pubs and restaurants offering a wide choice of food and drink.
Plymouth is just over the river and is a popular town steeped in history. Visit the Mayflower Steps to see where the pilgrims set sail in 1620, finally disembarking on the 6th September of the same year at Plymouth Rock in North America.
The site is also home to other historic events which are chronicled by plaques detailing their history. Commemorative plaques include details of the American seaplane which made the first transatlantic flight in 1919 and the Tory, the pioneer ship that colonised New Zealand which departed from Plymouth in 1839.
If you’re looking for good food whilst in Plymouth, an excellent choice is seafood, which the city is well-known for. In September the city hosts the Plymouth Seafood Festival but you can tuck into its excellent fish all year round in the city centre or waterfront restaurants with great views of local boats.
Freathy Beach is 20 minutes from the lodge by car. A shingle, rock and sand beach which is a favourite for those who want to enjoy a walk with their dog.
At low tide, the expanse of the beach is perfect for walking, at high tide the rocks which provide the backdrop to the beach form coves with the sea so take extra care to leave the beach before the tide comes in. Freathy Beach has brilliant views towards Polhawn Fort.
Chestnut Cottage in Carkeel is the perfect choice for families looking for a contemporary holiday space within easy reach of Cornwall’s fantastic beaches, shopping and river activities in Saltash and the history, restaurants and waterside attractions of Plymouth. The cottage has easy access to open moors and woodland walks for days spent in the fresh air.
Spend some time curled up on the sofa with a bestseller, catching up on your favourite TV show or watching your children play, or simply relax in the hot tub with a glass of wine.
