    The cottage is well located, close to lovely estuary views and the centre of Salcombe, but quiet. Everything was comfortable and clean. It took a while to find a parking space in the Shadycombe car park during the day, but it was not a problem on a weekday evening and the car park is very close to the cottage. Why take your car out anyway, once parked? There are beautiful walks locally, ferries available in Salcombe and the bus stop for Kingsbridge and Totnes is a minute's walk away. We would certainly visit this cottage again.

The property

Just a few minutes’ walk from the heart of Salcombe, as well as Batson slipway, Jot Cottage is a well presented 19th Century stone mid terrace fisherman's cottage, sleeping six people, and finished to an exceptionally high standard.

The cottage is accessed directly from Shadycombe Road, a quiet, residential area of the town, into a light and airy sitting room, comfortably furnished with two sofas and arm chair.

A stone fireplace with a wood burning stove is perfect for cosy evenings. Kitchen/ dining area is well equipped, with a 4-ring ceramic hob, double electric oven, upright fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and microwave.

Good sized dining table seats six people, whilst a door leads out to a rear garden and terrace area.

There is also a cloakroom off the kitchen. On the first floor are two of the three bedrooms.

Both of these bedrooms have a double bed and there are two bathrooms on this floor.

On the second floor (attic) is a further twin bedroom with 2'6 single beds.

In addition to the family bathroom on the first floor, with a bath and handheld shower there is a separate shower room. To the rear of the cottage is a good sized paved terrace with a table & chairs.

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.
