    “Lovely property in a great location.”

    Not high spec but homely and comfortable. Clean and tidy and consistently well cared for (this is due to the owners and nothing to do with Sykes). The little Coast and Country welcome packs were a lovely touch

The open plan kitchen has cream units and marble worktops and incorporates a five ring gas range with double oven and grill, dishwasher and fridge, whilst the dining area has a wooden table seating eight.

An archway leads into a cosy lounge with two double leather sofas, flatscreen TV and door out to a small terrace with table and chairs - steps lead down to foreshore (there is also a door from the kitchen to the terrace and foreshore).

At the end of a short passage is a utility area with fridge/freezer, tumble dryer, microwave and sink (a washing machine is housed in the ground floor shower room).

A set of open stairs lead up to the first floor sitting room (and twin bedroom).

The sitting room is very comfortably furnished with two double sofas, occasional furniture, contemporary wall-mounted electric fire, and flatscreen TV.

Two further chairs sit in front of the large bay window offering superb views over the harbour. Four bedrooms in total.

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.

Top floor twin bedroom better suited to children.
