Fantastic Week in Sunny Salcombe

5 of 5
Enjoyed our stay in Lakeside, the house was ideally located, just a short walk into town. The accommodation was very clean and well presented. The view from the rear bedroom, lounge and patio area is worth the rental fee alone, you can just sit there all day and watch the coming's and going's on Whitestrand Quay and the estuary. All in all, just a great place to spend your holidays.
