Our guide to Salcombe holiday cottages
With a mild climate all year round and a beautiful waterside setting, Salcombe is perfect for those of you that love whiling away your days on the water. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Salcombe is a bustling little town surrounded by some of Devon’s most dramatic scenery. Hills slope down towards the estuary and boats bob on the water, and the town’s sandy beaches are family-friendly as well as gorgeous.
Thanks to a busy newtwork of local ferry services, it’s easy to explore the rest of the area’s coastline and there are some hidden coves and beaches that’ll make you feel like you’ve stepped into an Enid Blyton novel. Salcombe may have moved on from the days when it was dependent on the estuary, but its restaurants and cafes still serve up the fresh catch of each day and you’ll be greeted with an unmistakable Devon welcome.
