    “Had a great time but not able to find details to contact Sykes regarding a tree branch hitting one of the cars outside causing a dent in the car roof.”

    Pictures can be provided as needed. Think some of the trees in the right as you look at the house from knowle road look like they have fallen. May need someone to make sure they are stable? Would you advise us how to contact you registering the damage to the car caused by the tree?

The property

This imposing modern three-storey detached property rests in an elevated position above the beautiful town of Salcombe, located within the stunning South Hams on the Kingsbridge estuary.

Ideally placed for a coastal escape with your loved ones, or for a relaxing walking holiday as a group of friends, there's so much to explore in this area of Devon, with Ash Tree House as your beautiful base.

There is off road parking for up to 3 cars.

Once you've made your way up the impressive set of thirty-seven stairs, enter past the porch to find three beautifully-presented bedrooms; made up of two double bedrooms and a twin room, all with soft, blue hues and a homely aura, it offers a lovely sleeping space to retreat to after each day of excitement.

Completing the ground floor is the gleaming, family bathroom, equipped with both a relaxing bath and a separate spacious shower enclosure, you can choose to unwind in the bubbles with a good book or soak off the sand with a refreshing shower.

The final bedroom can be found up on the second floor; an immaculate king-size with its own en-suite bathroom, it makes a lovely escape for the couple of the group, with a lovely outlook over Batson Creek and the countryside beyond.

Up on the first floor you can find the social spots of the kitchen, dining room and the sitting room; the kitchen/diner makes a great spot to gather together as a family around the large dining table, while the bi-fold doors let in a pleasant breeze from the coast, The kitchen is fully equipped and a great spot to create memories while you prepare family meals with your little ones.The sitting room is tastefully decorated with two large sofas and two swivel chairs allowing views through a further bi-fold door which also opens onto the decked terrace.

Here you can enjoy unwinding with your favourite film playing on the Smart television.

As well as a beautiful first-floor decked terrace boasting stunning estuary views you can enjoy alfresco dining in the summer months or relax and soak up the sun on one of the comfortable sun loungers.

The property also benefits from a first-floor rear patio with additional seating and a front terrace with further options to sit and watch the world go by.

Ash Tree House offers plenty of places to play and soak in your beautiful surroundings.

Why not take the opportunity of hiring a speedboat or paddle boards to explore the beautiful estuary?

Or take the ferry over to gorgeous Mill Bay?

The local area of the property boasts plenty of family fun; enjoy a celebratory meal in one of the town's waterside eateries, or pack up a picnic with the assistance of the local deli before making your way to one of the two beaches where you can enjoy a day of watersports and sandcastle building.

Spend some time in the Salcombe Maritime Museum to learn about the enticing history of the area, or take a stroll along the scenic South West Coast Path to discover the National Trust property of Overbeck's with its rewarding views and subtropical gardens to roam.

Dartmouth is well-worth visit if you're seeking a day rich in history, with its impressive castle, its own museum in a circa 1640 merchant's house and not forgetting its picturesque harbour.
