Overview

About the property

Luxury Lodge in Soar, Nr. Salcombe, Devon, England - Luxury Holiday Lodge. Quiet Peaceful Location. 10-15 Mins Walk To Beach. Sleeps 4+1(2 Bedrooms)

New to market 2013 -This is a modern lodge on a small, peaceful development in an area designated as “outstanding natural beauty”. Situated in the peaceful hamlet of Soar, just above Soar Mill Cove where there is a beautiful, unspoilt sandy beach with rock pools. Nearby there are amazing walks along the South West coastal path, some of the most stunning coastline in the country with access to many other sandy beaches and coves. The area has an abundance of wildlife including kestrels, buzzards, gannets, skylarks, hares and the occasional red deer. Hope Cove, Marlborough and other local villages offer excellent pubs/restaurants. Salcombe (within 3 miles) is renown for sailing, fishing and water sports and also has some excellent restaurants, bars and cafes. From Salcombe there are foot passenger ferries across the estuary and to South Sands (2 miles from Soar) and Kingsbridge. Totnes, Dartmouth, Slapton Sands, Burgh Island and the South Devon steam railway are all well worth a visit.

About Phil and Ruth Inch

We are married with 3 children. We have taken early retirement but are actively involved with a children's charity and regular trips to children's work in East Africa. We want to be able to share the benefits of our lodge with others and hope you enjoy it and the surrounding area as much as we do.

Phil and Ruth Inch purchased this villa in 2012

Why Phil and Ruth Inch chose South Hams

We love Salcombe having had holidays in the area almost every year for the past 27 years. We have always wanted a holiday home in the area and when we retired it was possible for our dream to come true. The peace and tranquillity of the area around Soar, along with the closeness to Soar Mill Cove and the many beautiful coastal walks made the lodge the ideal position. It is also in close proximity to so many beautiful places in the South Hams, so there is always something to do what ever the weather.

What makes this villa unique

Having spent a number of breaks in different holiday homes we have come to realise what makes a holiday home special and have tried to include these in our lodge so that your holiday will be as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

The lodge is only 1.5 ml from Marlborough where there is a Coop shop and garage which sells freshly cooked bread and croissants. There are 2 good supermarkets in Kingsbridge and a great variety of good pubs/ restaurants and cafes close by.

Brilliant holiday home & Fantastic value

  • 5 of 5

My family & I had the most amazing week staying in this fab holiday home. It is a lovely, modern, very high quality lodge, & was immaculate when we hired it. It is in an amazing location, great for coastal walking as well as nipping in to Salcombe.

The owners clearly take great pride & we were really chuffed to find such a bril' place to stay at a very reasonable (unbeatable) price.
