    “This is a very comfortable and well equipped property in easy walking distance to facilities in Salcombe and close to beautiful coastal walks.”

    Some people mentioned not enough hot water but, as a group of 7 adults, we had no problems at all.

    Some people mentioned not enough hot water but, as a group of 7 adults, we had no problems at all. I need to say that, there had apparently been staffing issues and therefore the property had not been properly cleaned. I only mention this, not to deter anyone from booking, but to say that the management company did their very best to rectify the situation, were upfront with us as to why it had happened and came to see us to apologize in person. We would definitely go back.

The property

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. Overlooking the head of pretty Batson Creek, a mostly level walk of approximately 3/4 mile meanders via the banks of the tidal estuary into Island Street and onto Salcombe itself, with its beautiful sailing harbour, sandy beaches, narrow streets and stunning views.

A flight of stone steps lead up to the front garden and to the canopied main entrance at the front of the house A good sized open-plan space on the ground floor has a large dining area with table and chairs, bookshelves with games, DVDs and books, and attractive bay window with desk and chair.

Two high chairs are available.

The modern kitchen has an extensive range of fitted units, breakfast bar, and is equipped with a four-ring halogen hob, integrated electric double oven and dishwasher, microwave and fridge.

About the location


Kingsbridge 7 miles; Dartmouth 21 miles; Plymouth 24 miles; Paignton 26 miles.

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck’s where you can wander through the subtropical gardens. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing, kayaking or a more leisurely boat trip? Whilst staying in Salcombe you must take advantage of the locally sourced seafood which is served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. The southern tip of Devon provides some spectacular scenery and picturesque vistas with a number of sandy beaches, lovely villages with thatched cottages and some fantastic opportunities for walking, including the South West Coast path.

Please ensure children are supervised at all times in the garden.

No pets permitted.

For reasons of comfort the house is limited to a maximum of eight adults in any party.

There is a flight of stone steps up to the garden/entrance from the parking area which may not be suitable for guests with access or mobility issues.
