Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and wonderful views of the beaches opposite

The location is in the heart of Salcombe town with its bustle of shops, restaurants, cafes and vibrant atmosphere. The beaches can be viewed opposite from the cottage windows. The Harbour is of great interest teaming with boats; sailing races can be seen from the cottage which is situated on the start line of the Yacht Club. Walking on the cliff tops and the coastal path is delightful, especially along estuaries such as Ernemouth at low tide. There are more lovely beaches, namely, Bigbury, Bantham, Soar Mill and Thurleston, to explore nearby. Dartmouth too is not far away to visit. Golf courses are excellent in the area. The accommodation consists of two double bedrooms, with en-suite facilities, a lounge and a galley kitchen. The scene from the cottage windows changes every minute and is a delight to spend time just watching the world go by. There is no parking at the cottage but spaces can be found in the roads around or there is a car park about eight minutes away. A map is provided. There is a newly opened Spa at the Salcombe Harbour Hotel just along the road.

About Anne Hereward

My name is Anne. I am retired now and love to escape from the routine to take a break at Shipwrights Cottage. My grandchildren also enjoy the holiday with all the family. We go across the estuary to spend the day on Millbay beach and also to race in the Club Regatta. There is so much to do down in this area for relaxing and I cannot recommend it highly enough to everyone.

Anne Hereward purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Anne Hereward chose South Hams

We used to have family holidays at Salcombe when we were young. It is such a beautiful area with the beaches, cliff walking, fishing, scuba diving, sailing, golf and exploring that we purchased a lovely, cosy cottage on the banks of the estuary thirteen years ago. The starting line for the racing is just below the cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Wonderful views of the estuary. Situated opposite the beaches and wonderful cliff walks.

Owner's Response: Comments are appreciated. The guests had had an early start to their journey to Salcombe and insisted that they should move in before the cleaners had had a chance to complete the changeover. I had explained previously that lunchtime was the earliest possible.

Wonderful cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Salcome and Shipwright's Cottage was very comfortable for my family. Our favourite place was sitting by the open windows in the morning. Watching the women rowers, boats and goings on of the water and all the dogs playing along the beach opposite. Weather was wonderful and walks to North and South Sands having a good breakfast at the Winking Prawn as well as the boat ride back which is a must. Went Crabbing in Dartmouth. We ate lots of gorgeous honeycombe ice cream and the kids loved getting crepes in the evening and we must not forget the sweetshop!

Such a lovely week! Thank you!

Wonderfully situated in the heart of Salcombe

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage - warm, lots of hot water, good wi-fi. Comfortable bed. Fine for two adults.

Fantastic walks on the headlands above Hope Cove, Overbecks and Greenways (both) NT worth visiting. Totnes good for independent shops.

The Bake House a great local asset as is the Victoria Inn.

Unfortunately, the oven had not been cleaned prior to our arrival and despite reporting this no attempt was made to rectify this omission during our four day stay. We are also used to finding local maps or guide books for the use of guests.

Owner's Response: I am always so keen and pleased for guests enjoy their stay at Shipwrights and I do appreciate helpful criticisms so that I can call in one of the team of experts for the job. My understanding of the oven not having been checked was that the guests were eating out (not to worry in other words) otherwise I would certainly have asked the cleaners to arrange an appointment to deal with any situations. There are however two ovens available, which will certainly be on their 'tick list' of jobs. Regarding maps and guide books, there is a very good Salcombe Tourist Information Office and the staff will supply any amount of information in addition to my bus time tables, What to Do in Devon, Restaurants etc, etc found in the chest in the sitting room and also my sheets which I send out to all my guests, together with maps for parking, etc. The Ramblers are very keen and welcome walkers to join them. Cathy actually had a very good deal because I did omitted to include the charge for bed linen and honoured my quotation when I realised!

Excellent location, great cottage

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a brilliant week at Shipwrights Cottage, which is both charming and perfectly located minutes from the centre of Salcombe, and with fabulous views across the estuary. Beds were very comfortable, and we found all that we needed in this 'home from home'. The owner is lovely and very helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Every year

  • 5 of 5

We are drawn to Shipwrights Cottage at Salcombe every year for our holiday because there is something for all the family; the beaches are so close which the children adore, the cliff walking, the shops, the restaurants, the sailing.

The cottage is so convenient and very cosy with lovely views of the estuary

Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic spot. Salcombe is a delight and staying at Shipwrights complimented this beautifully. It was a perfect cottage for our requirements, family of 4, and just as described.

We particularly loved the fact that it is right in the heart of Salcombe, yet peaceful with picturesque views to keep us entertained. The children adore all that Salcombe has to offer - the beach, the numerous water activities, crabbing, the park and jumping off the harbour as well as Cranch's sweet shop, the ice-cream parlour and Captain Flints for a treat! They also enjoy going to nearby Bigbury for surfing.

I would certainly recommend this for a holiday and a big thank you to Anne for her wonderful customer service and making us feel so welcome.

We can't wait to re-visit and have already booked!
