Batson House is a spacious and beautifully presented holiday home within a few steps of the pretty tidal creek at Batson, and just a 15 minute (mostly level) walk into Salcombe. The three-storey Victorian house has been extensively renovated in recent years to provide a high standard of comfort for two-three families (or an extended family party), adult groups or those simply looking for a large holiday retreat in a mostly quiet and sought-after location on the edge of the town. The accommodation, presented over three floors with six good-sized double bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms (including two en suite) and tastefully furnished, well equipped living areas, is complimented by gardens to the front and rear, and parking for up to four cars.
