The property

Anchor Cottage is a delightful period property, located in a tranquil cul-de-sac and only a few minutes’ walk into the centre of the wonderful waterfront town of Salcombe.

The cottage enjoys good views across Island Street towards Batson Creek and Snapes Point.

This three-bedroom property is suitable for a family, couple or group of friends looking to enjoy the beautiful town of Salcombe and the surrounding coast and countryside beauty this area of Devon has to offer.

A few steps up from the parking space at the front of the property, you will enter the cottage into the hall, which leads onto the sociable open-plan living area, where you will find a well-equipped kitchen with a range cooker taking centre stage, providing a fantastic space for creating tasty meals which can be enjoyed at the dining table.

After dinner, relax on one of the sofas and watch the Sky TV, enjoy a DVD using the provided DVD player, or chat about what tomorrow's adventures will bring.

Leading on from the kitchen is a separate utility room with a further door leading to a covered courtyard with butler’s sink, ideal for washing out wetsuits after a day at the beach and steps lead up to the paved terrace.

On the two upper floors are three delightful bedrooms; the master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed and enjoys views towards Batson Creek, plus an en suite shower room.

The second and third bedrooms are both on the first floor and are furnished with a double bed and twin beds respectively, which will suit a variety of groups; these rooms are serviced by a family bathroom, complete with shower, basin and WC.

To the rear of the property is a raised terrace with mature borders, this is a wonderful spot to dine alfresco, or to enjoy a glass of something chilled after a day on the beach or walking the wonderful South West Coast Path.

There is also off-road parking directly outside the cottage for one large car.

Salcombe centre is a short walk away, and is home to a fantastic array of boutique shops, cafés, pubs, restaurants and a picturesque quayside where children can while away the afternoon crabbing.

The charming sandy beach of Salcombe North Sands is just over a mile away, while the stunning South Devon AONB is a 15-minute drive away, offering picturesque walks and incredible coastal views.

Alternatively, why not venture further afield by catching the foot passenger ferry across to the sandy beaches of East Portlemouth or down to South Sands?

Set over three floors, this recently redecorated cottage is perfectly located and provides an ideal base for couples or families looking to enjoy all that Salcombe and the surrounding area has to offer at any time of the year.

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.
