About Jennifer Chard

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.

Jennifer Chard purchased this house in 1998

Why Jennifer Chard chose Salcombe

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay everything you could need, very clean spent most of the time around the table in the front and the conservatory. Would definitely recommend if you have four generation family as we have space and room for everyone.

A lovely house - perfect for family holidays!

  • 5 of 5

"Cornerways" is an impressive house, situated in an elevated position with superb views over the Salcombe estuary. The house is very well equipped, tastefully decorated and impeccably clean throughout. It is also very spacious, light and airy. We all felt very much "at home" as soon as we stepped inside, and it was a perfect venue for our celebration holiday with our extended family of ten, (+2 dogs)!

There is plenty to do and see in the Salcombe area, with the added bonus of increasing fitness by walking the coastal paths and up and down many hills in the town!

We all enjoyed our stay very much, and highly recommend this superbly appointed family home.

Lovely property with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Cornerways really made it special for us as we were down in Salcombe for a family wedding. To have a very comfortable property like this was perfect for the weekend. The snowy conditions made walking a challenge but we managed those hills even so!

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.
