Albany House is an elegant villa built in the late 19th century for one of Salcombe’s foremost Master Mariners.
It is situated in a quiet position overlooking Salcombe town and estuary, yet within a few minutes’ walk of all the town’s shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Each of the three flats enjoys off-street parking, a delightful large shared garden with outside seating and barbecues, wonderful views, unrestricted wireless broadband, multi-channel TV, an extensive Blu-ray/DVD library and guest membership of Salcombe Harbour Hotel Spa and Gym (for adults only).
Flats 1 and 3 sleep four, while Flat 2 is for one couple only.
All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.
Each flat has its own unique style and identity, but they all share the same high standards of accommodation, finish and equipment (including washing and drying machines), and extra touches such as flowers and bathroom toiletries.
And, of course, those great views!
Albany House is always a pleasure to return to at the end of a hard day on the beach or returning from a cliff walk - a stunning destination, at any time of year.
Flat 2 occupies the ground floor of the house, and enjoys lovely views across the town and estuary from the kitchen and raised dining area.
The open plan apartment, which has wooden or tiled flooring with rugs, has a light and bright feel by day, yet is warm and cosy in the evenings, and is perfect for one couple.
