Enjoy picturesque Devon with Salcombe holiday cottages

Salcombe is a seaside town in South Hams, Devon. It lies on the South East coast of England and is part of the area known as the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the past, Salcombe was known as a fishing and shipbuilding port and although much of this has now ceased, the marina continues to be busy with moorings and trips as well as local commercial fishing vehicles. Salcombe shellfish is well known and highly commended whilst the warm welcome given by the local villages and businesses make Salcombe a must-do experience.

HomeAway has a number of holiday cottages in Salcombe available for visiting groups of all sizes, from larger groups of ten or more people to couples and small families. Traditional architecture meets sleek and modern design in Salcombe and therefore there is a diverse range of rental property on offer. Small thatched cottages disguise comfortable, well equipped living space whilst sleek modern buildings offer a luxurious stay. Many of the holiday apartments in Salcombe feature well equipped kitchens with laundry facilities, microwaves, dishwashers and wi-fi access whilst large baths, powerful showers and comfy beds are also in plentiful supply. Children and pets are welcomed in selected cottages and some luxury villas also have their own swimming pools.

Salcombe is the ideal destination for those seeking a boating holiday with a flair. However, throughout England there are hundreds of idyllic locations for families and couples alike. From holiday cottages in Christchurch there is a great deal to explore, from the famed Christchurch Priory to the busy marina, whilst holiday apartments in Camden Town are the ideal base from which to discover the iconic market, destination nightlife and Regents Park.

Things to do

Sailing: The port and marina at Salcombe has been operational for hundreds of years when the shipbuilding industry was at its peak. Nowadays there are just a few commercial fishing boats whilst the rest remain purely for pleasure. Boats of all sizes are available for hire manned or unmanned, whilst marina facilities are also open for visitors. Bookings are recommended, especially during the summer months.

Fishing: Whilst sea fishing is extremely popular, visitors can also fish in the Salcombe and Kingsbridge Estuary which is also located within easy reach of holiday cottages in Salcombe. There are a number of angling societies in the local area from where advice, licences and equipment (including recommended bait) can be purchased.

Beaches: Devon is home to some of the country’s best beaches and Salcombe is no exception. Whilst the South Sands Beach remains the most famed and popular, the North Sands Beach is just as delightful. The South Sands however is a Blue Flag awarded area with a commendation from the Marine Conservation Society for 5* water quality. There are numerous facilities including toilets and refreshments within easy reach and access for dogs in certain areas.

Walking: Devon was made for walking and within close proximity of Salcombe holiday apartments there are a number of options for walkers of all levels of experience and ability. Whilst coastal and beach walks tend to appeal to those seeking a simple stroll, Dartmoor offers a more bracing experience with hill walking and hiking routes also widely on offer.

Weather

Salcombe is often considered the ideal place to retire thanks to the many activities and the extremely pleasant year-round climate. During the winter, temperatures tend to stay between 4 and 8⁰C whilst in the summer they can rise to almost Mediterranean temperatures of over 19⁰C. Rain, as with anywhere in the UK, is common throughout the year but during the summer months the area experiences on average seven days of rain in a month.

Travel

Travel to Salcombe is relatively simple and straightforward by a variety of means. Therefore, whether a visitor is arriving by car or public transport, they are likely to find Salcombe to be very accessible. By car, leave the M5 at the junction with the A38 and follow this until reaching the A381. From here follow the road until it reaches the junction with the B3204 (Devon Road) and follow this into town. Alternatively, there is a train station at nearby Totnes from where a taxi or bus can be obtained.

The cottage is delightful, equipped with everything you could possibly want/need, with the most magnificent views, and so centrally located in Salcombe that walking down to the shops takes a few minutes, and yet it's so quiet. We will most definitely be booking again.

Normally you would have stay a full week or more in many of the properties for rent, but on this occasion we only wanted a couple of days and were able to find this apartment that would accommodate a short break, so this was already a bonus for us. The apartment is right in the centre of the town; couldn't be better situated actually, close to all the shops and the water. It was remarkably spacious and was kitted out internally with everything we would have wished for during our stay. Beds were comfy, bedroom itself had loads of room, and barely heard a seagull squark all weekend to wake us which is unusual! The work the owners have done to the place can be seen, not least in the windows. Shower was large and water pressure was great - kitchen had all the utensils you would want to be able to cook in, although we ate out mostly as time was short for us, and we know the places to eat that we prefer! Nice to see pics of the owners family in the kitchen to remind you that this is someones house they are letting you stay in. All in all, a great experience and I very much feel it is likely that we will stay here again at some stage in similar circumstances - thank you again to Sally and Dom for allowing us the use of your home
