    Great position, very comfortable. lovely views. It works well for us. Current drawbacks are.......The cottage used to have a washer/drier, it has been replaced with just a washer. This makes drying clothes virtually impossible. The airer in the basement takes days as it is very dark and vaguely damp down there. There is nowhere else to dry washing. We were in the cottage for two weeks and that was a real drawback. The tv doesnt work properly. We made a complaint, however the technician who came out couldn't fix it. Apparently it is an aerial issue, and he needed to speak to the owner. I think it would be better to advertise the cottage as not having a tv rather than guests have an expectancy.

    Thank you for returning to Spinnaker Cottage. I'm sorry you had issues with the cottage this time. I have been told by Coast & Country that the TV was fixed whilst you were there and that there has subsequently not been a problem. I hope this is correct. The washer/dryer was replaced some years ago, and there is now an electric heater airer. Perhaps you were unable to find it this time. I hope these issues didn't spoil your holiday and that they were dealt with in a timely manner by Coast & Country. Thank you for choosing Spinnaker Cottage. Best wishes from the 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.

Originally part of a boat builder's yard, the cottage is old and quirky, with many period features. It has an attractively furnished sitting room with delightful views, two small sofas, Smart TV/DVD player and a door to the balcony. The kitchen/dining room is well-equipped with a range of appliances, and a table seating up to six people. There are three bedrooms in total: on the first floor is a double with a King-size bed and an adjoining Jack-and-Jill shower room, connecting to a twin room with two single beds and a further TV and DVD player.

Both rooms have fantastic views. There is another twin room at the lower ground floor level.

Please note this has a limited head height of 5'10".

The room has a built-in wardrobe and a small dressing table.

Next to this bedroom is a bathroom, again with limited head height in parts.

In the boat store is a full sized freezer and a washing machine, along with a sink, and plenty of space for storing beach kit.

There is an electric heated clothes airer provided. Outside there is a small balcony with two chairs, overlooking the estuary. Strictly no smoking or pets permitted. Wi-Fi available. As a baby friendly property, a travel cot, bed guard, high chair and stair gate are available. Small cutlery, plastic beakers and plates are provided. All duvets, pillows, bed linen and towels are supplied - tenants just need to bring beach towels.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.

The property now supplies a spa pass for the nearby Salcombe Harbour Hotel and Spa which is valid until 30/11/23
