About the property

Modern fresh holiday home in the centre of Salcombe sleeps 8.

The house is very private. It benefits from one of the best views in Salcombe overlooking Whitestrand Quay and on towards South Pool in the distance. It has parking for one car.

Lakeside is situated above the church right in the centre of Salcombe. The house is in a quiet cul-de-sac off Onslow Road with no passing traffic.

Lakeside is a modern house and originally designed as a holiday home. In early 2000 it was extended to take advantage of the wonderful view. It was converted to include two new bedrooms and a large open plan living area that has hosted some wonderful family holidays, not only in the summer, but throughout the year.

The house is fully equipped with all mod cons. It sleeps 8 comfortably all in single beds. There is one large double room and three twin rooms with one bunk room with adult size beds with lots of head room. One bathroom with bath and shower and large airing cupboard. One shower room and another separate loo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As anticipated we had a great holiday, we were lucky with the weather too and had some great days on the beach. The house was great as expected and the changes from last year were good, we enjoyed our morning tea from the new mugs!

You have a fantastic house with an amazing view of the harbour, it's well set up with everything you could want while on holiday.

Lovely house with great view.

9 Lakeside is a lovely and comfortable place to stay. Beautifully decorated with a sea theme and lovely pictures and sea charts on the walls. Everything you could possibly need is supplied including good local maps for walking. books, games, DVDs (Invictus is brilliant!), buckets and spades... We were lucky enough to have amazing warm weather and I really enjoyed breakfast on the balcony in September. To have a parking place at the house in Salcombe is a big bonus. The only downside is the steep walk down to the town but we could have driven and parked in the Shadeycombe or Batson carparks which had plenty of room. The shortcut to Spar (Post Office) was really handy.

We loved our ferry trips. There is a good walk around Batson Creek and Snapes Point with a bench on a hill with a wonderful view about halfway round. We went to Gara Rock twice as it was such a good lunch and particularly liked the shorter walk up there past the amazing ancient Lime Trees. I paddled from Mill Bay along the foreshore. We had delicious baguettes made to order in a tiny shop in Clifton Place near the end on the right. and a lot of icecreams!

We had a great week particularly as we were so lucky with the weather. The property had everything we needed and we loved eating our evening meal sat on the balcony enjoying the view!

Great place to stay for a reunion

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 2 weeks in June and we had some family members and friends stay with us for part of that time. Some nights we had 8 adults staying overnight and on one night we had 10 people for dinner. The property was very well equipped so we were all comfortable and cooking for a large group was easily accomplished. The view from the living room was as good as the picture with the added benefit it would subtly change during the day due to the weather and the direction of the sun. Belle was very helpful and pleasant to deal with and I highly recommend Lakeside as a property to anyone wanting to stay in Salcombe.

Quiet, bright and well-equipped property with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this lovely house for a week’s stay in early June and thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing break. The balcony, the open-plan living area and the master bedroom all have the same spectacular view of the estuary, which really is as great as the headline picture. We found it very easy to while away the time with a coffee or glass of wine just watching life happening down on the estuary.

The house is very well equipped, comfortable, clean and bright, and in a nice, quiet location, just a short walk from the town centre. You do have to be able to walk up a hill and some steps. Belle provided clear information and the directions matched those of our satnav. Her recommendations for eating-places were also good.

Salcombe centre is typically old England, but is also a functioning marine harbour, renowned for its seafood, which we enjoyed. For information about local walks ask in the Tourist Information Centre, (you can't miss it on your walk down into town) and purchase a map of local walks for about £3.00; the coastal footpath has some beautiful views and lovely secluded beaches. We used the ferries to go to South Sands and to cross the estuary. When heading along the estuary front on Cliff Road we were lucky enough to catch a regatta of the local gigs (the six-oar racing boats), good fun to watch for a couple of hours.

This was our first visit to Salcombe but it certainly won't be our last, and we will be returning to this property if we can.

Salcombe October 215

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this property for 3 nights at the beginning of this month. The outside of this property does not do justice to the lovely accommodation within. The lounge and main bedroom have fantastic views over the estuary and watching the sunrise was one of the highlights of my stay. The apartment is spacious, well equipped; the decor and level of cleanliness are of a high standard. It was within easy walking distance of the town centre (bit of a hill coming back). I would definitely return to this property.

Superb property - very spacious, a stunning view, very well-equipped, extremely comfortable. The property is very close to the centre of Salcombe. We really enjoyed our stay here. The highlight has to be the living area and balcony looking over the estuary but we really couldn't fault anything at all!
