    "Perfect Hideaway"

    Great location, down a quiet alley but about 30 steps away from Coffee, Beer, Cake and Shops! Comfy accommodation, nice decor with great sofa space, we didn't use the decking much as winter but lovely area for bbq in the summer I should think, I must confess with so many places to eat we didnt use the kitchen much either!. Very accommodation owners as we were VERY last minute and so glad we went. Little piece of heaven in Salcombe. Fab walks from your doorstep in either direction. Happy Adults, Happy Kids and Very Happy Dog!

    "Great location near to all amenities"

    Just back from a week with our 3 kids and in-laws. Very handy location right in the centre of the town but down a quiet little lane. Only moments away from all the amenities including Whitestrand quay for all the boat trips and ferry to South Sands. The main bedroom with ensuite is very nice and the sunny lounge with outside decking and barbecue is perfect especially if you've been on a successful mackerel trip!

    About the Owner

    We are a family of 5 and a miniature schnauzer who live in Teddington, SW London. We have been visiting Salcombe on holiday for the last 9 years. We fell in love with its beauty and the pace of life, so we decided to buy a cottage there. We really love its location and hope that you will too. It is such a lovely, safe town where the children are given a freedom to wander and enjoy some independence in a way which they do not get in London. We also enjoy the fact that without Sky and wifi, we actually spend time away from screens and the kids have even been known to read and play board games! We definitely don't get down there as much as we would like to, but we hope that you will enjoy your time there. Thanks for looking, The Spencers.
