    “We had a very enjoyable week in Ginn Cottage and our expectations were met.”

    The cottage is prettily presented and the kitchen is reasonably well equipped. We enjoyed the easy access to the town and the proximity to the Co-op.

    The cottage is prettily presented and the kitchen is reasonably well equipped. We enjoyed the easy access to the town and the proximity to the Co-op. Our only negative point was the need to be regularly updating our parking. We did manage to find spaces in the Creek car park but it would have been so much better if we had had a permit as many of the other properties appear to, rather than constantly having to use Ringo. But all in all a super week!

The property

Ginn Cottage is a cosy and very well presented mid-terrace cottage, renovated and fully refurbished in 2017 to a high standard throughout, and within a short walk of Salcombe town centre.

The accommodation is divided cleverly over three storeys and includes two beautifully furnished bedrooms sleeping up to four guests, a family bathroom, and a very comfortable sitting room with feature gas fire. This small fisherman's cottage is in Shadycombe Road, just a 2 minute walk to popular Island Street, with it's boutique shops, Salcombe Gin distillery, bar and galleries.

The famous harbour and estuary, popular with sailors and other watersports enthusiasts, is very close by, whilst the beautiful beaches of East Portlemouth and Millbay can be accessed via a small passenger ferry that runs from the town all year round. From the second floor bedroom there is a good view across Gould Road and Island Street towards Batson Creek and Snapes Point beyond.

From Shadycombe Road the front entrance leads directly into the sitting room.

There is further access to the rear (via the courtyard) up a few steps into the kitchen.

To the front of the cottage is a cosy, and very comfortably furnished sitting room with lovely painted wooden floorboards, one large sofa, a small ‘Accent’ sofa and two comfortable ‘Accent Snuggle’ Chairs, TV/DVD player and feature gas fire.

The room opens out into the kitchen and dining area with newly painted units, small attractive worktop, Belfast sink, four-ring gas hob with electric oven and a larder fridge with freezer compartment.

A wooden dining table has bench seating and chairs for up to six guests. On the first floor (up relatively narrow winding stairs with a fitted hand rail) is the main double bedroom with metal-framed double bed, small bedside tables, wardrobe and drawers.

On the second floor (built into the eaves) is a delightful second bedroom with double bed, and glimpses of Batson Creek and its resident boats, and Snapes Point.

On the first floor is a newly refurbished family bathroom with bath, shower (over), wash-hand basin, w.c, and heated towel rail. Outside is a small courtyard with a 2 seater bistro table and chairs.

From the courtyard, a narrow stone path leads to a small garden with mature shrubs and a delightful olive tree and has a lovely decked area with a table and chairs Parking is available at additional cost in the nearby long-stay car park. The cottage and location are ideal for one/two couples or a family with young children looking for high quality accommodation within quick, mostly level access of the town.

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.
