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 property is gorgeous, and perfect for what we wanted. There were four adults in our party, and plenty of space for us all. The area was wonderful. A very steep dirt track to get to the property, but don't be put off-it's worth the drive down! Thank you for the perfect place for our mini break.

                                                                                                      Spent a wonderful Christmas and New Year in this idyllically located cottage by the creek. Having arrived at the house after a long drive in the pouring rain we were thrilled to be greeted by a lit, warm, clean, and inviting home that was even better than advertised. Prepped to perfection for our arrival, the owners had gone the extra mile and left us an extremely generous (and much appreciated!) welcome package of a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of white roses, and delicious homemade cookies. The cottage is a comfy home away from home that is fully equipped with everything you need for a successful stay including a helpful guide chock-full with info about the house and things to do and see in the area. An added bonus is the fantastic summerhouse at the bottom of the sizeable garden overlooking the water. A heater and comfy furnishings meant that we could enjoy it on the winter days/evenings and even welcomed in a very merry New Year with drinks in there. Ideally positioned near the lovely market town of Kingsbridge and only a short drive away from Dartmouth, we explored the local and surrounding areas with ease even venturing into neighbouring Cornwall on one of our day's there. We were particularly lucky with the weather given the time of year, however wouldn't hesitate in recommending a winter stay as the scenery is just as beautiful and there are so many things to do that it's not hard to enjoy yourselves rain or shine. Of particularly note, in terms of local amenities, is the family run pub The Globe Inn located mere yards down the road who gave us a locals welcome on Christmas Day with a round of free drinks and mince pies. We had such a brilliant holiday that we are already planning our return in the near future.
