  • "We had a wonderful week in sunny Salcombe staying at Leylands, the property is beautiful and really well equipped having everything & more that we needed during our stay."

    The house was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean, with a stunning outlook from the front overlooking the estuary. We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely like to return in the future.

  • "This house is well appointed and in a good location."

    The beds and linen are excellent. The house was not clean. Parking is extremely difficult, you get a pass but the car is hilly 5/10 mins away and you can’t unload/load outside the house.

    Many thanks for leaving your feedback, we are glad to hear you found the property well-appointed and it really is in a great location. Due to the position of the property, a car parking pass is the only option for parking, this is 5/10 minutes away however a lot of our guests pull up on the opposite pavement to unload and then go and park. We are disappointed to hear the house was not property cleaned on arrival, we have spoken to the cleaner who was very apologetic, on this occasion due to unforeseen circumstances and a logistical issue the cleaners were running late that day. We can only apologise and hope that you enjoyed your stay in spite of any issues you have raised. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful holiday at Leylands."

    It was a fantastic house - we particularly appreciated the lovely beds and linen! We would suggest that perhaps a tap out the front would be useful in order to stop people having to carry wet and sandy things through the house but other than that we were very impressed!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We’re really pleased you’ve enjoyed your stay here at Leylands. We appreciate your suggestion and will pass onto the owner, many thanks. We hope to welcome you back to Salcombe and the sandy beaches sometime soon. Property Owner

  • "This is a fantastic place in which to stay for a holiday in Salcombe."

    The house was immaculate having recently been refurbished and very stylish. We were unable to park outside but did not need the car during our short break as there are a few excellent coastal walks from the town.

  • "Leylands is a beautiful house with lovely space and modern facilities which we found very comfortable."

    It is a short but very steep walk in and out of town which is fine if you are fit but not for those who need support. It is a real shame there is no parking for this reason as the provided permit was for the reef car park a good walk away. The upstairs bathrooms need some updating/ deep cleaning but apart from that we would go again.

  • "It was perfect."

    The central location of Leylands made the house a perfect base for our holiday.

  • "The house has been extended and refurbished."

    The large kitchen-dining room is very fully equipped: there were 3 teapots and we have remedied the lack of a tea-strainer with the help of Salcombe DIY! We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed the small sloping back garden and the patio area.

    Lovely view too! Only thing I would say - more hand towels please! Fantastic week and beautiful weather (also a bonus in Salcombe!)”

    House above and beyond expectations. Glorious weather topped it all off wonderfully”

  • "Great holiday."

    Everything we needed and lovely location. Could have provided two passes for the car park as the house is so big and we had 2 families.

  • "We had a lovely holiday there and hope to go back next year."

    A few things to improve is to get a new hoover and it would benefit from a spring clean as behind the 2 single beds it was extremely dusty ! Also the bath had not been cleaned and the 1st set stairs had not been hoovered. Other than that great house and very well equipped.

    Many thanks for your feedback, We are so pleased that you thought Leylands was a great property and you had a lovely holiday, although we were concerned to read that the property was not satisfactorily presented prior to your arrival. As you will appreciate, we work very hard with our owners and housekeepers to ensure high standards of cleanliness are maintained, so it is very disappointing to read these comments. Your feedback has been passed on to the housekeeper/cleaner. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. We hope to welcome you back to the area in the near future.

The property

Leylands is a delightful late Victorian terraced house built for a sea captain, in a beautiful position in popular Salcombe.

The property, which has been sympathetically renovated and furnished to a very high standard in recent years, has magnificent views of the harbour towards South Pool Creek and East Portlemouth, and is just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre and waterfront. Arranged over two floors, the property is well equipped with baby/child friendly facilities, and with multiple living areas, it is excellent for those with older children who may want their own space.

The open-plan kitchen/dining room is beautifully...

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
