The West Country region

Salcombe is extremely popular as a sailing holiday destination, boasting a fabulous harbour and many facilities for boating enthusiasts. Indeed the annual sailing Regatta brings thousands to the town every year. Salcombe also has two beaches, North Sands and South Sands, both of which remain unspoilt and are perfect for sailing, surfing, swimming, sandcastle building, rock pooling or simply relaxing! Try crabbing on the quayside with a locally made ice cream, explore the National Trust gardens at Overbecks or for something more exhilarating, walk along the South West Coast Path and enjoy the breath-taking views out to sea. The town offers shops ranging from the butchers and bakery, to independent boutiques and designer clothing outlets.The main Fore Street also boasts many fabulous restaurants, offering fresh, locally caught seafood, including delicious South Devon crab.


There is a superb range of water and land based activities. You can learn to sail, hire a dinghy to explore the many creeks and beaches around the estuary, go scuba diving, canoeing/kayaking, power boating, surfing, fishing and horse riding, to name but a few! For a more leisurely holiday, take a scenic boat trip, walk the coastal paths or enjoy lazing on one of the many beautiful beaches. If the weather should disappoint, you will find plenty of interesting tours and fun things to do under-cover, to keep the whole family entertained.

"A lovely house in a beautiful place"

We spent a lovely week in Salcombe. What a beautiful place! The house was in a great location and was very comfortable inside. It had everything a family would need for the week and the balcony at the back was a real bonus, as was the garden! The outdoor shower was very useful after days out at the beach. Our children really loved the house and garden and having a park opposite the house was a very nice surprise. We would highly recommend this house for a relaxed family holiday.
