    Mr Derek Stinson

    “Lovely property but access by narrow lanes can lead to a lot of reversing!”

    Little Horsecombe is indeed a lovely property, located in the heart of Devon, reversing down country lanes is inevitable but the charming property at the end makes up for it! We hope you book again with us soon and once again thank you for leaving feedback. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Little Horsecombe is a traditional thatched cottage situated in an idyllic, quiet rural location about 3/4 mile from Batson Creek and a twenty-minute walk from the Salcombe Estuary.

Salcombe is home to a fantastic array of pubs, restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops.

Catch the foot passenger ferry across to the sandy unspoilt beaches of East Portlemouth, or why not spend an afternoon crabbing on the quayside? The kitchen is galley-styled with fitted units, electric cooker, fridge/freezer and microwave.

Adjacent is a utility room housing a washing machine, w.c.

and hand basin. The sitting room is comfortable and spacious with a large sofa, armchairs, TV with Freeview and DVD player.

A pair of French doors lead out to the garden and terrace. On the first floor are the three bedrooms; the master has a double bed, views over the garden and neighbouring countryside, and an en-suite shower room with a shower.

The remaining two bedrooms are both twins, each with two single beds and pleasant views over the garden.

A family bathroom has a bath and shower (over).

Outside is a large garden and paddock with garden furniture and a barbeque, whilst a tennis table in located the garage… great fun for children and adults alike! There is ample space for 2-3 cars on drive.

As a baby friendly property, a travel cot is available on request.

Whether you are planning a family holiday, a walking break with up to two dogs, or a relaxing getaway with your partner, this is a fantastic base for exploring South Devon.

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.
