    “A really lovely house, homely and well equipped.”

    The whole family me Grandma, my two daughters and two grown-up Grandchildren, had a great holiday. I could spend all day just watching the boats, toing and froing, while enjoying the sun from the wonderful top balcony. It was great to be able to walk to the shops and restaurants even if it was a climb to get back!! We enjoyed trips to South Sands and North Sands, stopping for coffee at The Winking Prawn and getting the ferry back. We hope to repeat the experience one day.

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.

Telephone available for incoming calls only.

Wood burning stove not in use.
