  • "Absolutely loved this holiday home - the location is perfect!"

    Clean, spacious, warm and welcoming, so we had a lovey blend of walks, meals out and then all on the couch for movies at the cottage. We were so lucky to have glorious weather mid Sept and the only thing we did miss was an outside space to sit and have a coffee in the morning (though there are plenty around the harbour). Many reviews mention the hill to the cottage and also the steps down the the main door. We agree that for people with small children, or anyone with walking difficulties this could be an issue. But we loved it - it was amazing for us!

  • "No microwave."

    Modern world- why not. Also worried about not being able to open downstairs windows. In case of a fire this is a serious problem. On a warm night just uncomfortable.

  • "Great place to stay - felt as if we were one of the first."

    Big, light, airy living room, beautifully finished to high standard, as are bedrooms and bathroom. Utility and WC/shower at front entrance very handy, too. No real view to speak of but so close in the centre (30 secs to Fore St!) that's not surprising. More than made up for by homely, clean, smart maisonette. There's even a good supply of loo roll and towels. Strangely no broom or dustpan and brush, too. Had to use vacuum cleaner. Sofa could be more comfortable and the electric hob has a mind of its own - like others we've encountered, it turned itself off when too 'hot' and wouldn't return which made cooking tricky! Great value by Salcombe standards and would definitely return.

    For the size of the property the fridge is small . The downstairs windows would not open .

The property

Nestled within the exciting town centre of Salcombe is Lower Court House, a beautiful duplex apartment split across the ground floor and lower ground floor, perfect for a seaside family retreat.

This delightful cottage is accessed down several steep steps to the ground floor entrance, welcomed immediately by an attractive shower room, while also on this floor you will find a twin bedroom, ideal for two children.

Spend an evening of relaxation in the beautifully decorated open-plan living area; prepare a delicious group meal in the well-equipped kitchen, letting the chef of the group show off their skills with the contemporary amenities, before heading over to the formal dining seating for a sociable evening dinner, catching up with loved ones over good food and drink.

Unwind on the large corner sofa as you decide which film to watch on the wall-mounted TV, delighting in the stylish and welcoming ambiance the room provides.

Make your way down to the lower ground floor to find three more charming bedrooms, a modest single with its own truckle bed underneath, and two intimate king-size rooms with trendy features, stonewalling and an airy feel.

Sink into the roll top bath as the hot water relaxes your muscles in the bathroom, a quirky room with sloping ceilings and a separate walk-in shower.

Lower Court House is a homely retreat, ideal for an exciting seaside adventure to Salcombe.

The Court House Apartments

The Court House Apartments are two stunning properties with an appealing black and white Georgian facade and stylish interioir featured throughout, close to the centre of Salcombe and just a walk away from the sandy beachfront, perfect for a group of two families looking to holiday together in this amazing coastal location. Both dwellings are layered throughout three floors of this wonderful house, with the Lower Court House spanning between the ground and lower-ground-floors, and The Court House housed between the ground and first floor, benefiting from a sensational terrace extending out from the kitchen, complete with table and chairs to enjoy the views with a glass of wine in hand as the sun sets. Step outside of the house and into the thriving seaside centre of Salcombe where you’ll be met with cafés, pubs, shops and sandy beaches such as South Sands which is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the historic Salcombe Castle (Fort Charles) found just off the beach of North Sands. Make sure to try your hand at a selection of watersports on the glistening waterfront, from surfing, sailing, kayaking and even paddleboarding, alternatively discover the fascinating Maritime Museum when a rainy day hits. Venture out on a memorable boat trip on the passenger ferry over to East Portlemouth for even more stunning beaches where you can spend a day sunbathing, sampling local ice cream, building sandcastles or tuck into classic English delicacies with far-reaching sea views from The Venus Company café, serving up tasty fish and chips. Challenge yourself to a ramble along the South West Coast Path, stretching for 630 miles running from Somerset to Dorset, boasting awe-inspiring views among quaint pathways, seaside resorts and charming villages. The Court House Apartments boast a luxurious getaway base to explore the best that South Devon has to offer.
