Spinnaker Cottage is a comfortable and very conveniently located Grade II listed holiday cottage with spectacular estuary views, secure parking in the heart of the town, and direct access to the slipway (via 'The Salcombe' car park) for launching a small RIB or boat, canoe or stand-up paddleboard. The accommodation is divided over four floors, the top two of which were a former fisherman's cottage - these cosy rooms have retained much of their original character and are equipped and furnished to a good standard.  The lower two floors, formerly a boat builders' workshop, provide additional space for storage and boating equipment etc. 

New from Autumn 2017.  Reduced 'Low Season' pricing - now from just £492.00 per week for up to 6 guests
