A traditional terraced cottage stylishly furnished and equipped to a very good standard throughout, and arranged over three floors. This delightfully cosy cottage, situated in a sought after position in the heart of East Portlemouth village, has lovely views of the Salcombe estuary and is just a ten minute downhill walk to beautiful sandy beaches, 'Venus' cafe, and small foot passenger ferry (that runs to/from Salcombe all year round).  It is an ideal retreat and base for families or couples (with or without a dog) looking to explore this stunning location.
