    “Seven friends spent an idyllic weekend in the sunshine overlooking the estuary at Salcombe.”


    The Custom House is spacious, clean, well-appointed and is blessed with wonderful views. We relaxed and enjoyed spending time in the house and the village. The living room is great for groups of people to chat, read, listen to music and stare at the view. The pub next door, the bakery on the corner, the butcher around the corner and the fish & chip shop a 5 minute walk away were all really handy and very good. What would make the house better? Not much - towel rails and door locks in the toilets. Additional sets of keys (we were 7 people who wanted to do different things) would be good. We are planning to return for some more chilling and enjoyment (fizz on the balcony!)

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..
