    It is perfect for exploring the area, and nice to return home after a day of walking and not climb a huge hill. Parking was a great plus. The cottage itself needs some attention. It is a little tired, sofa in the lounge is scruffy, as is the rug. Drawers and bed in bed one were chipped. Blind in bed 3 kept falling down, we reported it and was temporally fixed while new part ordered. My son had to put a towel up over the window to sleep at night. The house in general wasn’t as clean as you would expect given the current pandemic. Lots of crockery for home cooking but the utensils were limited. Cottage would not be suitable for young children given the steps leading up to the property. The outside of the property is very open, if you like privacy this may not be for you. During our stay the neighbours property was being refurbished so very noisy, this can’t be helped but a heads up on this would have been helpful.

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.
