Penn Cottage is a charming, 19th Century former fisherman’s cottage in a quiet street in the heart of Salcombe, with fabulous views of the estuary from the main bedroom.

About Philip and Sarah Davies

We live in London, England, with our son and daughter and 6-year old black labrador 'Toffie'.

Philip and Sarah Davies purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Philip and Sarah Davies chose South Hams

When we found Penn Cottage it was love at first sight. It is a delightful cottage in a central quiet location. We have furnished it to a high standard to make a welcoming home from home.

Salcombe is a special place, in and out of season. It is big enough to offer a lot of activities and variety shops, pubs and restaurants, yet small enough to be friendly. The estuary is a fabulous 'play area' for adults and children alike - with beaches, boating, sailing, walking, day trips and more.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautifully furnished and presented.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had an absolutely wonderful time at beautiful Penn Cottage. The owners have covered everything you could ever need for a fantastic holiday from home comforts in the cottage as well as information on the local area / walks / pubs / restaurants / contact numbers etc. The cottage itself is in a fabulous location in Salcombe centre and the views from the bedroom balcony are of the estuary and are quite stunning. We would gladly recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay in Salcombe. We certainly will be looking to book again in future.

Thank you Philip & Sarah for your thoughtfulness.

Comfortable cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in a small street behind the popular Fortescue pub, Penn Cottage offers a great location, with superb views across the harbour from the main bedroom's balcony. Well appointed and well managed, it's perfect for a relaxing getaway, with easy access to Salcombe's facilities. Can't recommend too highly.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really good holiday let!

Well appointed and maintained, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, dog-friendly and a super location in Salcombe. The view of the estuary from the main-bedroom balcony is as good as any in the town.

Booking was straight-forwards. The owner, Philip, is very well organised and friendly and all the information you need for your holiday arrives in good time.

It has 'the feel' that your staying at the cottage of a friend or family member, rather than a holiday rental. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property to anybody.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

A great property & wonderful owners. Fantastic central location but off the busy main Street. So homely and such nice touches for example all the supplies of basics, which are a pain taking / buying on holiday, like dishwasher tablets / washing powder / tea bags to the parking permit. Philip was so helpful from our first enquiry right throughout our stay. We are looking to rebook for next year already.
