About the Owner
Our family has now had connections with Salcombe for four generations. I started first with childhood holidays in a caravan, next with our parents buying and renovating the cottage and then our uncle and parents retiring here in the 80’s and 90’s. After university and a few years travelling I was lucky enough to start work near Dartmouth in 2001 and have been based here ever since. Now I am bringing up my growing family entirely in this idyllic area.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have enjoyed our stay in your unusual cottage - lovely view from the living room - especially as we live in a bungalow. We have taken some lovely walks with the dog and enjoyed the "Round Robin" from Dartmouth.
Good weather - with just a few showers.
Lovely food - I do not cook on holiday!!
Very relaxing week,
Norman, Christine and Sparky
From the Owner
“It was my mother's dream to own a property in Salcombe after she and her brother had spent many summers here on and off the water. Finally in the late 70's my parent's started seriously looking at cottages and ended up choosing a gem tucked away in Lower Batson that they spent every minute renovating for a few years before it became our second home in more ways than one.”
Activity and Interests
Around Salcombe, there is the option of North and South Sands beaches on the Salcombe side, which would best be reached by a short drive or a leisurely stroll of a couple of miles. Alternatively you can walk into Salcombe centre (approximately a mile) and catch the ferry either to East Portlemouth or South Sands.
Many other South Hams beaches are within a short drive
Batson is some way off public transport routes, so the use of a car would be recommended. Totnes train station is approximately 18 miles away and buses are infrequent, so a taxi would be advised. Exeter airport is about 55 miles away. The Plymouth ferry port to France is about 25 miles.
Batson is less than half a mile to the edge of Salcombe along a flat road. To the town centre is about a mile where you will find shops, restaurants, laundy and other amenities. The nearest market town is Kingsbridge, about 5 miles away, with supermarkets and a wider range of services. The nearest cities, Plymouth and Exeter, are about an hours drive away.
Most of the South Hams (stretching from the south of Dartmoor, to Plymouth on one side and Totnes on the other) is within an hours drive.
Salcombe is an ideal place for all sorts of holidays, from the more obvious ones that characterise the area of sailing, beaches and walking, to quiet retreats and other relaxing breaks.
In all seasons it has something to offer, be it the buzz of the summer or the quiet and beauty of the winter.

- Outside: A hideaway garden with surprises around each corner. Rising above the back of the cottage there are steps to three patio areas. The lower one has space for a rotating clothes airer, but is often chosen for the spot to put the table and chairs for tea. Next there is a small enclosed patio which has been known to accommodate the barbeque, and finally following the winding path through the shrubs you come to another flat patio with a bench and summerhouse. There is access to garden both from the rear porch and outside steps at the side of the cottage Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Please bring your own bed linen and towels.
