This exquisitely presented seaside holiday home sits in the heart of Salcombe, with views stretching across the estuary towards East Portlemouth, South Pool Creek and nearby beaches.
Offering a tasteful mix of traditional and modern décor, Seagull Cottage has a range of bedrooms to suit a variety of holiday groups.
Enter through a stable door into the stone-flagged hall, to find two of the bedrooms (one with en-suite), as well as the family bathroom.
Stairs lead up to the open-plan living space, where you can gather at mealtime, put your feet up or marvel at the far-reaching views from the wall of French windows and doors.
Step out onto the balcony for elevated sights across the estuary, and relax with your morning coffee or evening sip of something stronger.
Across the three floors you’ll find four bedrooms, two with the luxury of en-suite wet rooms, and two bunk bedrooms – the ideal hidey-hole for younger guests.
The ground floor master bedroom is bright and welcoming with its light furnishings and patio doors to the private decking.
Here you’ll find a large rattan sofa – the perfect place to gaze across the rooftops and chimneypots to the coast beyond.
The first floor twin comes with cabin bunkbeds, and winding up to the second floor, via traditional, narrow stairs, you’ll find an attic king-size double, complete with en-suite.
Settle in bed beneath the skylight, from where you might even spot a star or two at the close of the day.
Just a few steps from Seagull Cottage are plenty of pubs, boutique shops and restaurants, as well as the waterfront.
Drop a fishing line from the harbour in the hope to catch a crab, watch the sailing boats, or stroll along the beach at sunset.
Travel a little further and South Devon’s entire coastline is your oyster, with pretty coves, beaches bays dotted beside the sea.
Wander the South West Coast Path, get the heart racing with speedboat rides or relax on a fishing boat trip.
Seagull Cottage is an elegant escape for those seeking a central, seaside base.
