Driftwood is a stunning detached house, furnished, equipped and presented to the very highest, contemporary standards, and with lovely elevated views of the Salcombe estuary. The two-storey accommodation offers a superb retreat for extended families or possibly 3-4 couples in a mostly quiet area of the town yet within only an 8-10 minute walk of Salcombe's beautiful harbour and waterfront, boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and the small passenger ferry running to unspoilt sandy beaches.
