    “The property is over the Fat Face shop in Fore Street and if you are facing the property, the gated entrance is found down a narrow path to the right of the shop.”

    The access codes for both the gate and the key pad were sent by email once we booked the property. There is a small car park approx. 30m further up Fore Street, which for a small charge we parked in just to unload the car and get everything to the property. The long stay car park permit was on the dining table waiting for us and we then moved our car to the long stay Creek car park which is located past the Co-op.

    The access codes for both the gate and the key pad were sent by email once we booked the property. There is a small car park approx. 30m further up Fore Street, which for a small charge we parked in just to unload the car and get everything to the property. The long stay car park permit was on the dining table waiting for us and we then moved our car to the long stay Creek car park which is located past the Co-op. The property was lovely, clean, and with a very well equipped kitchen. We cooked all our evening meals there, having bought our vegan supplies for the week with us. The fridge has only a small freezer compartment. We ate lunch on the go and we never had a problem finding vegan options in any shop, cafe or restaurant. The owner kindly supplied new tea towels, a few dishwasher tablets and a 100ml bottle of washing up liquid. All bath towels are supplied but not swimming towels. The beds were very comfortable and the two small bathrooms were great for us. There was a small amount of damp in the main bedroom fireplace and ceiling which I am sure the owner will address, as overall, the property has been well cared for and was nicely decorated. The TV is big and made for a great Eurovision evening. The radio is in one of the wall kitchen cabinets. There is a shelf of videos and books which was a nice touch. We did not use the wood burner as the weather was great, but it's a nice feature. The clothes hanging space was limited but there is plenty of drawers which was just right for the two of us. There is some covered building work approximately 20m behind the property. Although it is visible, it did not bother us as there are lovely blinds and shutters to arrange as you wish for privacy throughout the property. Noise was not in any way a problem, indeed the property was surprisingly quiet considering it is on the main street. For us the position was perfect as it was right in the heart of Salcombe, with the ferries shops, pubs and cafes all on a level walk. (No hard slog up to a rental at the top of the hill at the end of a day for us!) We had a fantastic week exploring some of the South Coast Path which was stunning and beautiful. We would recommend popping into the information centre to pick up the maps of some of the circular walks: Gara Rock, Bolt Head, Snapes Point, Bolt Tail, Thurleston. Don't miss a ferry trip to South Sands to explore Overbeck Gardens; the views are superb. Thank you for a fantastic week. We would not hesitate to recommend this property or to book it again. On one more point. I left a small rucksack at the property when we left, but after a quick call to Coast and Country Cottages, this was returned to our home address within days for a reasonable £30.

The property

Situated in the bustling town centre of Salcombe is Sealark, a first-floor apartment situated within walking distance of shops, pubs, restaurants and the waterfront.

This property is perfect for a group of friends or family looking to explore the south of Devon.

Walk up the outdoor steps and into the gorgeous, seaside-themed flat, featuring marine blue walls and coastal decorations.

The open-plan living area is a stunning room, where a classic brick wall is the backdrop of a cosy woodburning stove, and snug sofas are found in front of a large TV.

Found behind the sitting room area is a chic kitchen and dining area, well-equipped with a microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, as well as a beautiful wooden dining table where you and your family can dine over tasty meals throughout your stay.

Both the king-size and twin rooms benefit from TVs for lazy Sunday mornings, whereas the bunk room is fitted with a spacious en-suite bathroom where guests can unwind in a soapy bubble bath.

The family shower room is the perfect spot for a refreshing shower after a long day at the beach, perking you up before a night on the town in one of the local nearby pubs.

This apartment could not be in a better location, located on a busy street right in the town centre, where you can visit a selection of shops, bakeries, pubs, and local delicacies.

Stroll over to the waterfront where you can walk among the scenic sea views and take in the fresh coastal air.

Salcombe is a fantastic town boasting watersports, a maritime museum, parks, and opportunities for a tranquil boat day.

Spend a day sunbathing and swimming at one of the nearby sandy beaches, choosing between East Portlemouth, North or South Sands, and Bantham.

Ramblers will thrive at the chance to walk along the South West Coast Path National Trail, 630 miles worth of quaint villages, seaside resorts, marinas, and unbelievable views.

Sealark is a gorgeous apartment found amidst the hustle and bustle of beautiful Salcombe.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
