Luxurious leisure lodge with outstanding sea views close to coast path. Recently refurbished lounge/diner and bedrooms with the owners working with award winning interior designers SophieLouise Interiors in Exeter in 2015/early 2016 (new professional photographs pending, so mine will be out there for a few weeks!!). Fully fitted to a high standard, with super comfortable beds, spacious master bedroom, full size bath, and many luxury features. Views over farmland out to the sea. Quiet rural location, 10 minutes walk to beautiful beach. Fish and chips at both Start Bay Inn, Slapton (no booking possible) or the Cricket Inn at Beesands.

About Caroline Hooper

My husband and I have enjoyed visiting this area for over 20 years and are now both semi retired.

Having previously run a successful holiday let cottage for 6 years in the area, we know that people like a well equipped and comfortable 'home from home' environment to relax and enjoy after a busy day exploring the fantastic facilities. The lodge is therefore upgraded to a high specification and enjoys sea views.

We hope you love the accommodation and area as much as we do.

Caroline Hooper purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Caroline Hooper chose South Hams

The lodge is adjacent to a National Trust farm and has far reaching sea views, including the Edison Lighthouse at night. It is 10 minutes walk from fabulous Soar Mill Cove beach.

The site is small, quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of Salcombe, yet within easy reach of many of the local hot spots such as Dartmouth, Totnes and Salcombe.

There are many beautiful beaches and coast walks nearby, along with bars, bistros and restaurants in Kingsbridge/Salcombe to suit all tastes and finances, as well as local produce and farmers markets for home-cooking. There are several National Trust properties in the locale.

Once here, the use of a car is not necessary as the links to the coast path and beaches are on hand.

There really is something for everyone here.

What makes this chalet unique

The balcony/open plan lounge area are comfortable and relaxing with great views over farmland and the coast. Binoculars, bird spotting books and local guide books are available for guests to use and enjoy.

The kitchen is well equipped for the gourmet cook, and the bedding and decor are tasteful.

All beds have been upgraded for superior comfort.

For the occasional rainy day, there are books, magazines, games, toys, 3 TVs, recorder, 2 DVD players and rural WiFi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful situation and walks. Superbly equipped kitchen. Best accommodation.

The lodge is very well appointed with great attention to detail. The view is great and the sunsets spectacular.

A real home from home.

A truly relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults &2 children) spent a wonderful week at Sea Views in Salcombe. The location was very quiet and tranquil with outstanding views across the fields to the sea. This was a treat to wake up to, and come back to every day. The lodge itself was perfect in every way. It was clean and very well maintained. The facilities were of a very high standard. The fridge, cooker, washing machine, dishwasher were all in excellent condition and easy to use. We enjoyed all of the little extras that have been so well thought out for the visitor, from magazines of the local area, books, board games and snugly blankets that my children loved. Dealing with Caroline was very easy and comfortable - I will certainly be recommending it to my friends and family.

expectations surpassed

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was larger and more luxurious than we had expected. The site was beautifully maintained and spacious. A sincerely nice relaxing week in an area of devon with lots to do. Bantham beach was 15 mins away in the car and perfect for access with our 3 small monkeys.

Lovely, relaxing holiday with a sea view...

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is lovely, comfortable, spotless and well equipped. This was our second stay at Salcombe Retreat and we will no doubt return. The lodges feel like solid buildings, with all the amenities and comforts of a cottage. Beatuiful sea view, deer and badgers in the field behind and we could walk to Salcombe in under an hour and along the SW coast path in both directions to make the most of those sea views. Would definitely recommend a stay here at any time of the year.

Stunning setting, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is set amongst the rolling hills of Devon with views to the sea, simply stunning. The property itself is a home away from home, but more luxurious. It is very clean and has all the appliances needed and more. It is situated within a small quiet site, perfect for a relaxing get away. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there, albeit too short...and will most definitely book again. Highly recommend.
