    “We all really enjoyed our week’s stay in Lanapoule, a lovely “upside down” house with the open plan living room, dining room & kitchen at the top with fabulous views out across Salcombe.”


    It was clean and comfortable and there was always plenty of hot water for showers. Everything was provided and we only needed to take a couple of tea towels and our beach towels. It was so nice to be staying in a quiet road just up out of the busy town with no worries about having to find somewhere to park our cars. We had our dog with us, she soon settled in & loved being in the garden with us. The garden room is ideal for anyone looking for some quiet time with the relaxing sound of gently running water from the pond being a bonus. There are 4 sun loungers which we made good use of as we were very lucky to have some sunshine. There was 7 of us adults staying and we would all thoroughly recommend Lanapoule and Sykes Cottages. Also thank you to John, the house owner, who kindly called us a week before our booking to give us some useful tips before our arrival, much appreciated.

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.
