Wonderful stay

5 of 5
We had a fantastic week in Salcombe, in no small part thanks to this lovely house with its magnificent view. The house suited our needs perfectly; spacious, clean, some steps but nothing particularly tricky even with two very young children, and very well equipped and stylishly decorated. It's perfectly located - close to the centre but very quiet and the walk up the hill helped keep us fit! Would love to return.

Well equipped cottage in a peaceful location

4 of 5
This was a great location for exploring South Devon with some wonderful walks from the cottage, from a short walk across the fields to Bantham to the stunning the Avon Estuary circular walk. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed our short time in the area and would definitely return.
