    “The cottage is in the heart of Salcombe and has the most fantastic views of the estuary.”

    It is a delight to open the curtains in the morning and watch the harbour come to life. Being so central you can expect noise from late night revellers, but this is to be expected. The car park is a fair walk away so bear this in mind when booking especially if you have small children. Trying to bring the car down Fore Street is a challenge and quite stressful when the town is SO busy, on arrival and departure it was very difficult to unload and pack up. ...

    It is a delight to open the curtains in the morning and watch the harbour come to life. Being so central you can expect noise from late night revellers, but this is to be expected. The car park is a fair walk away so bear this in mind when booking especially if you have small children. Trying to bring the car down Fore Street is a challenge and quite stressful when the town is SO busy, on arrival and departure it was very difficult to unload and pack up. The beds are comfortable and the shower is powerful. However, the cottage is tired and in need of investment, it’s a mish mash of old furniture with little thought to making it a comfortable and stylish experience for guests. The downstairs bedroom is an almost windowless room which feels very damp and the adjoining bathroom is very dark. Neither of my teenage kids wanted to sleep down there. For us the views didn’t make up for a disappointing stay.

    Thank you for your comments following your stay at Spinnaker Cottage. We find that the pictures of the property are accurately representative, so it is a shame that you found the furnishings not to your liking. It would seem that this property did not match your families requirements; due to its central location in a busy town, its likely to suffer from noise disruption. The car park is located a flat, 5-7 minute walk away, and there is a lay-by which you can to pull in to for vehicle loading and unloading, but we do appreciate that this is not guaranteed especially in the height of the season. We are glad that you enjoyed the fantastic views, and hope that we can welcome you back to Salcombe again soon. Property Owner

The property

Located very centrally on Fore Street, offering immediate access to Salcombe's famous waterfront, Grade II listed Spinnaker Cottage boasts a boat store with space for one small RIB, paddle board or similar, and use of a slipway. The cottage has superb views of the estuary towards East Portlemouth and South Pool Creek from most rooms.

It has an attractively furnished sitting room with delightful views, two small sofas, Smart TV/DVD player, gas fire and a door to the balcony.

About the location

SALCOMBE

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.


The property now supplies a spa pass for the nearby Salcombe Harbour Hotel and Spa which is valid until end of May 2022
