    “The lighting in the kitchen was rather gloomy, and the microwave was virtually inaccessible!”

    (I.e not safe to use as only the tallest person could use it without standing on a stool).

    (I.e not safe to use as only the tallest person could use it without standing on a stool). Information about the rubbish was a bit difficult to understand. In these enlightened days it rather went against our principles to have to put everything in the green bin! Despite that, we had an excellent week of walks and relaxation!

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay. We are sorry that you found the lights quite dull; these have since been replaced and thank you for your comments regarding the microwave; there is a kick step for those unable to reach this. Despite these issues, we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Owner relations

About the location

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.
