Getting around

The apt. is within walking distance of the passenger ferry to Salcombe and the South West Coastal Path. There are also two beaches which are also within a 15 min. walk from the apt. together with restaurant facilities at the newly opened Gara Rock Hotel. In the summer months there is a cafe situated on this side of the estuary where you can obtain lovely snacks while watching the sailing boats racing and people just generally messing about in boats. There is no bus service in the area so a car is necessary not only to get here but for getting around to investigate other beautiful areas close by.
