    “The view from the balcony was amazing, the highlight of our stay and worth the visit.”

    However, the flat is very tired and needs new furniture (especially sofas) and carpets. The bin in the bedroom was full. The kitchen was clean and well stocked but everything else was below expectations of a stay in Salcombe.

About the property

If you and your loved ones are seeking a well-presented and spacious accommodation in Salcombe, one of the most sought-after locations within the South Hams district of Devon, look no further than 4 Glenthorne House.

This stunning single-storey property offers an exceptional base for beachcombers, ramblers, families and those alike to call home, as they enjoy all that this corner of coastal Devon has to offer.

Kick off your sandy shoes within the light-filled hallway before making your way into the heart of the home, the open-plan living room, containing everything you could possibly need for a self-catering stay with family.

The kitchen comes well-equipped for the chef of the group to rustle up tasty evening meals, as well as plenty of preparation space to pack up a picnic for the next day’s beach adventure, in addition to a dishwasher and a washer/dryer, so that you barely have to lift a finger whilst on holiday here!

Joining the space is the formal dining table, a sociable spot for enjoying the company of your loved ones as you tuck into a local takeaway or a family-favourite dish, accompanied by a tipple for toasting to a wonderful holiday.

Completing the space are two leather sofas, which are awaiting to be curled up in at the end of each bracing day; flick on the gas fire to allow a gentle warmth to fill the space before tuning into the TV to unwind into the evening before heading to bed.

Alternatively, during the balmy evenings, open up the patio doors and step out onto the decked balcony to savour the views across the colourful town and across to the picturesque estuary.

Once the sun has set, return indoors to find your sleeping spots, with the master bedroom notable for its plush king-size bed and access to a private balcony, where the views across the estuary continue to captivate.

Bedroom two consists of two single beds which can be zip-linked (on request) as well as an additional trundle bed and its own en-suite shower room.

The ground-floor apartment is completed by the family bathroom, which features a shower over bath, so that you can truly savour a moment of relaxation at the end of a fun-filled afternoon.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings as you meander into the centre of Salcombe, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of locally-sourced delicacies for those evenings where you do not feel like cooking, as well as a plethora of pubs and the famous Salcombe Gin bar located on Island Street for those special occasions.

Just a short walk away is the picturesque waterfront, where watersport enthusiasts can look forward to exploring the crystal blue waters by hiring out a boat from Whitestrand Boat Hire, or if you are feeling brave, try your hand at paddle boarding, swimming, surfing, sailing and kayaking!

When the weather is warm, pack up your beach bag and follow the South West Coastal Path to discover the local beaches of North Sands Beach and South Sands Beach, both featuring a glorious stretch of sand, incredible views and rock pools, which are well-worth exploring.

From here, you could also visit the National Trust property of Overbeck’s or hop on board the ferry to make the trip across the waters to visit the delights of Small's Cove, Mill Bay and Sunny Cove Beach.

Make 4 Glenthorne House your base as you explore this stunning part of Devon.

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.
