    “Great property - Our 5th time in Salcombe and Dory cottage stood out as one of the best places we’ve stayed - Nothing showbiz, yet stands privately with an elevated aspect, is well appointed and hugely practical.”


    The owners have added many things to just make the place work for them (e.g. outdoor shower and drip/hanging areas) and their guests (dog gate/guard in utility, washing/drying facilities, etc.) The garage beneath provides extremely convenient and safe location even for larger cars. Kids loved having their own ‘den’ area in the attic room, which is accessed from the landing and not the garage as the listing suggests! Overall a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in October. In Summer there might be more noise from Island Street, yet the terraces would surely be excellent for BBQ/entertaining.

About the location

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.
