Location description from owner

The England region

Near the Southernmost point of Devon, East Portlemouth was once a busy port and shipbuilding centre, building five ships which helped to carry the English army to France in 1346 for the Battle of Crecy. Later, clipper schooners were built here to carry fruit to England from the West Indies and the Azores. Until about 1885, Primrose Cottage and the adjacent

Location description from owner

The England region

Near the Southernmost point of Devon, East Portlemouth was once a busy port and shipbuilding centre, building five ships which helped to carry the English army to France in 1346 for the Battle of Crecy. Later, clipper schooners were built here to carry fruit to England from the West Indies and the Azores. Until about 1885, Primrose Cottage and the adjacent cottage were a pub, the Exeter Inn. The Village shrank in Victorian times, when the local landowner demolished a large no of homes, claiming that the villagers refused to work on his land ( for the little money offered ) and that they were only interested in fishing, smuggling and drinking. Pillaging from wrecked ships was also a popular local pastime. A number of ships were wrecked on this coast and the Village Churchyard is said to contain the bodies of many mariners.

East Portlemouth

Apart from sailing, swimming, birdwatching and walking, there are many wet weather activities, details of which are in the Cottage and at the information centres in Kingsbridge and Salcombe. Totnes is worth a visit, particularly on market days, and also Dartmouth. There are National Trust properties at Overbecks nr Salcombe, and at Coleton Fishacre and Greenway ( Agatha Christie's home ) nr Dartmouth. An excellent beach restaurant for families is the Winking Prawn, on the South side of Salcombe, while there are many pubs with reasonably priced food. The popular Start Bay Inn is excellent for fish and chips, but get there early.

“Super location, ideal for walking to beaches and Salcombe”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2012

Primrose Cottage is ideally situated for walkers, surfers, sailors, and families young and old, to enjoy access to local beaches, the Venus cafe overlooking Salcombe harbour, the foot ferry to Salcombe, fine views from East Portlemouth village seating up the Salcombe estuary to Kingsbridge in the north, and quiet peaceful enjoyment of the area. Its situation allows families to safely allow older children to walk down the path to the cafe and harbour side unaccompanied, giving an independence they relish.
