    “The location and size of the property was excellent.”

    It was very clean and everything we needed was there.

    It was very clean and everything we needed was there. Parking was tricky as the access road is very narrow. There was a bit of noise from the pub but, with its close proximity, that is to be expected but worth being aware of. Bearing in mind it was November, heating instructions were not obvious so we had to work it out ourselves. Radiator heat was eratic.

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.
