About Diana

My husband and I are Interior Designers, based in Surrey.

We have an elderly dachshund and an 18 year old daughter, both who have grown up digging in Salcombe's sandy beaches and mucking about on boats in the Estuary!

Diana purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Diana chose South Hams

The Salcombe estuary is arguably one of the most scenic seaside locations in the UK. For us, like so many others it was love at first sight, Salcombe is the perfect place to unwind as it has something to suit everyone. We really feel with have the best of all worlds here, a lovely bustling town, full of life with lovely boutiques and restaurants, but with easy access to the coastal paths where you can easily find your own peaceful spot to admire the gorgeous views. The area really is a boating paradise, whether you want to Sail at the Island Cruising Club, take a ferry to one of the sandy beaches, hop on a scenic tour or hire your own vessel and explore the inland creeks (and pubs!)

What makes this apartment unique

Wellingtons is the perfect choice for a relaxing break, you really don't need to get back in the car for the duration of your stay. Everything is in walking distance, We are a ten minute downhill stroll to both Salcombe town and Northsands Beach, where the famous Winking Prawn beach cafe/bistro is situated & open all day. Being just a short distance from the town, Wellingtons is a lovely peaceful retreat, especially in the high season when the town is bustling, you can come back for a swim in the lovely outdoor pool.

We are Interior Designers and this apartment is our beloved home. It has been our aim to make the interior both elegant and tasteful as well as relaxing and comfortable.

This property is exquisite, beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

This flat is very convenient for Salcombe there is a local bus stop outside the house, so no need for a car to go to Salcombe if you are unable to walk. The beaches are in walking distance, either using the ferry or staying the Salcombe side. Beautiful area either in season or out of season. I fully recommend a visit.
