About the Owner

Owners Nick and Jenny have three adult children. We all love holidaying in Salcombe with the family, as well as spending time at Cornerways with our friends.

We live and work just outside London and enjoy taking weekend breaks down in Devon to get away from the stresses of our working life, enjoying the hustle and bustle of the busy summer months, but equally the peace and tranquility offered in low season.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a family reunion and it was all we could hope for, spacious, clean, homely. Everything was available and well equipped from coffee machine to games. Wonderful conservatory and even though there were nine of us there was ample space for everyone to chill. The house is high above the town with lovely views but to walk to can be difficult for the less able and hard work with a push chair, but there was adequate parking in the town.

We Thoroughly recommend this house.

From the Owner

We have been holidaying in Salcombe since the 1970's, and in 1998 decided to buy Cornerways. It is a lovely family home, in a good location being set about 5-10 minutes walk from the centre. There are great views and good inside and outside space.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Being an area of outstanding beauty there are plenty of beaches and countryside nearby. The National Trust Property, Overbecks offers wonderful coastal walks.

Salcombe is well known for its sailing.


The beaches on the other side of the estuary, Fishermans Cove and Mill Bay, can be reached by the ferry. For those who enjoy a good walk North Sands is about 20 minutes away. South Sands is a little more challenging with the hills, but can be reached on the South Sands Ferry from Central car park. There are a couple of hotels on South Sands providing food and drinks, and also a cafe and watersports centre. Please be aware that some beaches operate a May to October ban on dogs.


Exeter airport is about an hour away, Totnes and Plymouth railway stations are about half an hour away.


5-10 minute walk down to Salcombe (maybe a little more on the way back!)

Kingsbridge 7 miles

Further Details:

The nearest shop is the Spar, just a couple of minutes walk away. The shop at Malborough petrol station is about a 5 minute drive away. Larger supermarkets (Tesco and Morrisons) are in Kingsbridge. Salcombe has a great butcher,bakery and fishmonger, as well as Cranchies sweet shop. There are numerous restaurants and pubs in the area.

From the Owner

Three separate reception areas means that those wishing to watch TV can be in a separate location from those wanting to socialise in the dining room or conservatory. The conservatory also offers a feeling of being outside when the weather is not ideal, whilst still enjoying the views. Our newly constructed loft suite offers a large bedroom with ensuite shower room and a sitting area with views. This can be a lovely refuge for grandparents who wish to have their own space. Apart from the lounge, downstairs is not carpeted. This accommodates our guests who like to bring their dogs away with them. We have private off street parking for three cars. The Spar convenience store is just around the corner!
