    “We had a fantastic week at Sandpiper Cottage.”

    The house was heated well (February!) and the log burner was welcomed each evening. The location enabled us a quiet, country walk (with children) into Salcombe. ...

    The house was heated well (February!) and the log burner was welcomed each evening. The location enabled us a quiet, country walk (with children) into Salcombe. Some feedback we would leave to enhance facilities further that could be added would be; hooks on all bedroom doors for towels and dressing gowns, more crockery including egg cups, scales, butter dish, more bowls for children and cups etc. The key safe was very difficult to use and we had to call for help to get into the property - this I have no doubt was being fixed and the service was exceptionally quick to look after us. We will definitely book again - a beautiful little cottage in a quiet haven! Thank you

When night calls, retire to one of the three well-presented bedrooms, two of which are charming doubles and one of which is a twin that is ideal for the little ones.

The bedrooms are next to the family bathroom, where you can refresh yourself in the bath with overhead shower; there is also a cloakroom on the ground floor for added convenience.

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.

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.
