    “Our 4th stay at The Penthouse.”

    It’s very comfortable, has everything you need. Great location too. We notice little updates, so nice that the owners are keen to keep things fresh and in good working order. We will be back.

The property

A splendidly appointed first-floor duplex apartment, offering its guests reverse-level accommodation to allow for the best views over the estuary and the town.

Located in the heart of Salcombe, The Penthouse is the perfect choice for a coastal adventure with the convenience of being in the town.

Make your way along the hallway and up the stairs, from the front door count the further sixteen stairs to enter the first floor of The Penthouse.

Three well appointed bedrooms each decorated in restful coastal hues are on this floor with televisions and far reaching views over the town or estuary.

Take your pick from a master super-king-size with en-suite shower room, while the further two equally elegant bedrooms consist of a king-size also with zip/link functions, and a twin with 3ft beds and two stora beds beneath,(by request) offering a flexible sleeping arrangements.

The first floor also hosts both the luxurious bathroom and a shower room with a spacious walk-in shower, so you can choose how best to unwind after a day of beachside fun before venturing up the stairs to delightfully light and airy open-plan living space.

Also home to a handy utility, the second floor is where you can find all the essentials for a relaxing self-catered stay; open up the balcony doors and take a seat outside taking in the marvellous scenery as the barbecue sizzles away, or for more formal dining, gather around the table together with the kitchen hosting all you need to entertain friends and family.

End the evening snuggled up on the plush corner suite in front of the Smart TV, before catching your rest ahead of another day of fun-filled activities.

The town of Salcombe hosts a range of family-friendly amenities at any time of the year; with a plethora of eateries including cafés, pubs and restaurants to take your pick from, as well as both high street and independent stores to while away the hours in finding the perfect souvenir, there's plenty to do here, or for those feeling more adventurous, be sure to try your hand at surfing or kayaking on the estuary, with crabbing also making the perfect family activity.

Enjoy a more leisurely trip on the waters via a boat ride, or take to the waters with a swim on one of two wonderful beaches in the area; North Sands and South Sands, both offering a lovely spot to soak up the sun and create everlasting memories.

There are plenty of fantastic attractions within easy reach too, with the Salcombe Maritime Museum making an educational trip to learn more about the past port history of the town, or take a trip to the National Trust's Overbeck with its stunning subtropical gardens.

Explore the beauty of the South West Coast Path by either foot or bike, or venture out to the pretty villages of Hope Cove and Bigbury or the market town of Kingsbridge with it's picturesque estuary.

The Penthouse is the perfect place for a fantastic coastal escape,
