  • “We visit Salcombe every year and have always stayed in the hotel there but as we had family joining us we thought we would try as house this time.”

    The Sands was a fantastic house to stay in and offered so much space and comfort for all and the views were breath taking and so lovely to wake up to every morning.

    The Sands was a fantastic house to stay in and offered so much space and comfort for all and the views were breath taking and so lovely to wake up to every morning. There were a few minor things that need fixing but nothing that effected our holiday. We hope to be back again next year as we had a wonderful time and the weather was incredible for October.

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.
