About Tim Goodall
We (Tim and Emma) are putting our family home up for holiday lets. We live and work in Dubai, but have had our second home in Salcombe since 2007. Salcombe is where my wife's family live and so is somewhere we will continue to visit, in addition to the fact it is in a beautiful part of the world. The house was gutted and stripped back allowing us to create a very personal special, albeit compact, family home for our holidays in the UK. We are not letting the home as a business but more of a sustainable need given it is a second home used once a year. We have put a lot of love, care and thought into the design of the interior and outdoor spaces, and we hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
Tim Goodall purchased this Cottage in 2005

The cottage has been beautifully renovated, was totally sparkling and had everything that we needed, including towels which I thought was brilliant. My husband has a mobility issue but he managed the stairs to the first floor as the oar on one side and the side of the stairs made it possible. The parking was fantastic to have but made for a little hilarity getting in and out with my Mondeo estate.....but it is possible!!! The outside space was great to have and we managed to sit out to have coffee in March as it is a little suntrap. The amount of information provided by Tim and Emma before our visit was amazing. Re Salcombe - the cottage is easily within walking distance of the town centre and the harbour but be aware of hills if any issues with mobility and there is very little parking within the town itself. For a fab cream tea and/or cake, would recommend The Winking Prawn (totally in love with this name!). Thanks Tim and Emma for the use of your cottage, it was lovely. Only left a day early because of the amber warning for snow which proved to be a good decision - A30 closed the following day!!
Thanks so much for the nice words.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Shame the weather cut it short.
Hope to see you again in Salcombe

The cottage was really lovely, it was in a great location and was really nice inside with great facilities.
Lovely cottage in a perfect location
The owners are wonderful and the cottage is beautifully decorated. Would happily stay again.
Cosy,convenient, clean !
Ideal location close to town centre but far enough away to get some peace and quiet. Cottage is super well appointed, everything worked great - nothing we could fault. Great communication from owner, would certainly return.
Quaint Salcombe Cottage
This is a fantastic place to stay for the seaside views, the availability of restaurants, and the local charm. The cottage has a master with a half bath, a full shower, and a loft bedroom; we thought it was perfect for 2-4 adults (or a family of 4); any more would be too crowded.
It would be nice if the bathrooms were stocked with necessities like body wash, more TP and towels; especially for travelers without a car to transport. The espresso machine was finicky and works part time.
Otherwise, a great place to stay with nice hikes and lots to do. Tim and Emma sent local attractions, restaurants and were very helpful.
Charming cottage with good facilities for 6-7 people and within easy walking distance to the town
We’ve just spent a lovely week in salcombe and this cottage was ideal for our group of 7. Being at the bottom of the hill made the walk into town so easy and only took around 10 mins, and it meant that we hardly used the car. There are lovely views to the countryside from the back of the house too. The accommodation was very good and the use of 2 bathrooms was great for 2 families sharing, especially the wet room, which has a fantastic shower!
The kitchen is very well equipped and everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. Despite being a cottage there was plenty of space around the dining table and the lounge area was very cosy.
We were also glad to have the use of a washer/drier and the outside washing line meant that we could dry towels easily after a day at the beach. We’d definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back again one day. Thanks Tim for all your help and advice, which made our stay so enjoyable :)

The local shops are very good. You will find Coleman's a family butcher , delicious baker, fishmongers, delicatessen shops, grocers, gift shops, clothing, interiors & home-wares etc and the best sweetie shop you have ever seen, which the children love. There is a Lloyds bank and a Boots chemist. The clothing shops are interesting and varied for wetter days. We love "Chattels" at the end of Fore street opposite the butchers, for its interesting selection of home-ware, interiors and gifts. We love the sausages from Colemans the butchers. There are numerous restaurants and pubs for eating out and serving locally caught fish or shell fish; Captain Flints has great pizza's, but it is very popular and queues are to be expected; Salcombe ice-cream is a must! For a very good curry on a Friday night at The Pilchard Inn on Burgh Island, go to Bigbury which is accessed at high tide by a tractor, or walk over the spit of sand for an adventure. Newton Ferries has The Ship Inn on the tidal river's edge. Kingsbridge has two of the usual supermarkets. Walking in the area is so varied with Dartmoor close at hand and the Ramblers welcome people to join them three times a week. There are National Trust houses, e.g. Sharpitor on the cliffs at the mouth of Salcombe estuary and another at Dartmouth.
