  • “Lovely cottage but could have been cleaner.”

The property

This pretty 16th century stone cottage is situated in the idyllic hamlet of Baston, just 15-minute walk from Salcombe. Summer Cottage has been lovingly refurbished in recent years to create a stylish, characterful holiday home offering wonderful countryside views. The cottage is ideal for a family looking to explore the South Hams, widely regarded to be one of the most beautiful parts of Devon. Step inside to find Summer Cottage’s cosy living area with delightful traditional features including supporting beams and oak flooring.

The calming, neutral décor will help you to relax into your holiday as you curl up in front the roaring wood-burning stove. The shaker-style kitchen and dining area is spacious with plenty of room for the whole family to gather for meals.

The Watson range cooker will see you cooking up a storm.

No need to worry about the dishes afterwards – just pop them in the dishwasher. The ground floor shower room and WC is great for that little bit of extra space. On the first floor, the master bedroom is striking with exposed stone walls and its own en-suite.

The rest of the party can choose from equally charming bedrooms to snuggle up in with a double bedroom, a child’s twin bedroom and a fourth bedroom with children’s bunk beds. As well as the en-suite, there is also a family bathroom upstairs with a bath and shower overhead.

To the side of the cottage, there is a large terrace area with outdoor seating.

Perfect for enjoying a cup of tea in the morning as the sun comes up!

Outside, you’ll also find a separate studio with a TV, comfy sofa and table football – an ideal escape for children.

Salcombe’s many shops and restaurants are all within easy reach.

While you’re here, make sure you try fresh Salcombe crab at one of the town’s many wonderful seafood restaurants. There are two lovely beaches within a short distance and for the more adventurous, you can try your hand at activities such as surfing or kayaking. This pretty cottage is the perfect home away from home.

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.
