The property

Set in a relatively quiet, mainly residential area of Salcombe yet within a very short distance of the town's boutiques, restaurants and famous waterfront, Bumblebee Cottage is a delightful 19th Century stone property, in a short terrace of similar cottages.

Batson Creek is just a few minutes’ walk away for quick access to the slipway and car park.

The property has a sneaky peek of Batson Creek from the first floor master bedroom and also from the attic bedroom. The cottage is accessed directly from Shadycombe Road into a long open plan sitting room and kitchen and dining area beyond.

This area is particularly cosy with two comfortable sofas and a leather chair set in front of an open fireplace with stone surround.

The kitchen/dining area is a small but well equipped, modern kitchen with stylish new units, 4-ring gas hob, electric oven, under counter fridge (with freezer compartment), washer/dryer and microwave.

Good sized dining table with six chairs (including two folding).

Door out to rear passageway and terrace area.

(There is an additional mini freezer in the cupboard under the stairs) There are three bedrooms.

On the first floor there is a master bedroom with double bed, en suite shower room, second bedroom with double bed and 2nd floor (attic) - twin bedroom with 3' single beds and stairgate.

In addition to the en suite is a second shower room on the first floor, with power shower, wash-hand basin and w.c.

Outside there is a good sized paved terrace to the rear of the cottage with table, chairs and barbeque.

This is a fantastic location for a coastal break, with quick access to Salcombe’s picturesuque waterfront, slipways and beaches.

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.
