Salcombe

Long the favoured destination for yachties, Salcombe is in an exquisite location surrounded by sheltered water and a string of tiny, sandy bays. There is a distinctly upmarket feel to the town itself; boutique shops and chic cafes and restaurants abound throughout Salcombe’s quaint streets. Activities revolve around the wind and waves; sailing is the number one sport here and there is plenty of opportunity for lessons for the beginner or boat hire for the more experienced. For much of the year (March to October) you can also leave the car behind and use the South Sands Ferry.

Salcombe

Salcombe is located in the most southerly part of Devon.
Because of the narrow streets and the priority given to pedestrians, a park and ride scheme operates during the summer from the outskirts of Salcombe. Plently of shops, galleries and cafes/restaurants for relaxing with a cuppa. Sit by the marina to end off a perfect day. Visit Overbeck's a National Trust Gardens, and enjoy the views over the Salcombe Estuary from the house and garden. There are 2 lovely beaches in Salcombe, South Sands & North Sands.
