CREEKSIDE COTTAGE WITH PRIVATE WATER FRONTAGE, SUNNY GARDEN & LARGE PATIO.

Salcombe House Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful 3 bedroomed terraced cottage, a quick level stroll from town centre.

Number Twelve is one of only a handful of properties in Salcombe that has its own water frontage, with steps down from the garden to make access to the water easier. Almost uniquely, the house also has a sunny lawned garden, from where you can jump directly into the sea. as well as a generous breakfast patio with table and chairs.

Situated in a prime location, just a 2 minute level walk into the centre of town, this traditional terraced fisherman's cottage has 3 bedrooms, one of which has a huge Super Kingsize bed and views across Shadycombe and Batson Creek's to the rolling Devon countryside beyond. There is also a twin room and a bunk room all with adult sized 3' mattresses, a family bathroom and a separate loo.

The cottage has been thoughtfully modernised and is equipped with WiFi, full HD Smart LED TV. The compact kitchen has everything that a keen cook would like to find and there is also a separate utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, deep freeze and plenty of hanging space for wet suits, waterproofs or walking boots.

A reserved parking space between May to October gives you flexibility. No dogs without prior arrangement and only outside of the high season.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The house was magnificent and fulfilled our every need and more....Never realised how well preserved Salcombe is. Magical! We did some great walks and had a day of kayaking and some lovely pub meals. Thank you for a lovely time.

My Parents bought this cottage 40 years ago, from the family of the fisherman who used to live here. When I was young, we spent all our summer holidays down in Salcombe. We were always doing something 'messing about on the water', from sailing, windsurfing, beaching or waterskiing.

In the quieter months, Mum and Dad loved to walk the cliff tops, eat in the many friendly pubs or just chat with the boat builders and fishermen who live locally.

Now the Grandchildren enjoy coming to Salcombe. The cottage just seems to adapt to whatever age group is staying. Old or young, summer or winter, Salcombe always delights and casts its magic over all who stay!

Rebecca Morgan purchased this house in 1972

Salcombe is a very special place which just seems to seep into your skin. We find that we are forced to take life slower when we are there. It's so easy to relax in its atmosphere.

Our Cottage is in the heart of the working end of Salcombe and many of our friends are the fishermen, boat builders, Lifeboatmen and craftsmen who either live or work along Island Street.

We were thrilled when we found an old photograph of the garden with the line of the hills around Snape's Point clearly visible in the background, showing a group of fishermen sorting their nets in the very spot we now enjoy drinking our sundowners.

We've always loved the fact that there is a boat yard right next door to us, especially as they sell fresh crab and lobster straight from the sea. We used to have the bar of the Island Cruising Club on our other side, but sadly that has moved, so we have further to go for draft beer now!

As soon as we saw the garden and the area at the back of the cottage we knew we wanted to own it! Sitting in the garden at the end of the day, when a stillness has descended, and most of the boats are quiet and the beaches empty, I love to watch the sun set over Batson and bathe in the warmth of the evening sun. You can almost imagine that you have Salcombe to yourself then and yet you know that just 2 minutes walk away, all the restaurants and bars are buzzing. Its my favourite time in Salcombe

Gorgeous cottage, in fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5
This is a really lovely cottage with a fantastic central location in beautiful Salcombe. We stayed here for a week and wished we had booked for longer. The cottage is a minutes walk to the centre of Salcombe shops so daily trips to the yummy bakery for freshly baked bread for breakfast were a breeze. It has all the amenities that we needed and would also be ideal for a family with children. The outside area is a peaceful spot to read the paper with your coffee and being able to see the harbour a real pleasure. The added bonus of a parking space (which are like gold-dust in Salcombe) is great, we literally did not move our car once we arrived but the fact that you can go out for the day and come back knowing that your space is there waiting for you is fab. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and we cannot wait for our next stay there.

Lovely house, tardis like inside....

  • 4 of 5
Fantastic property in the midst of the boatyard area. The property was really clean and welcoming with lovely touches. It felt like a much loved seaside home with family photos on the walls and the huge bed on the top floor was to die for. Kitchen really well equipped and great for chatting whilst cooking as integrated into sitting/dining area. We spent a couple of afternoons in the garden, in the sunshine watching the boats tootle back and forth on the creek, Excellent and responsive owner. Car parking space is 5 minutes walk and a real bonus. Huge storm one night which flooded the shops in Fore Street but the house was fine.

Recommend highly, good instructions to get to the property and there are lots of walks you can do from the house so you can forget about the car completely. Thanks for letting us stay there.

Good location, clean (apart from cooker and microwave). Very handy car park permit. Plenty of space and good utility room for washing, storage etc. A bit concerned about all the fine china on display and for use in the kitchen, looks lovely but not really practical. Will visit again in 2014 as long as there isnt a price hike.......Would happily recommend to friends and family

Salcombe is an all year round destination, with something for everyone. Renowned for its gentle climate, it sometimes seems as if the rest of the world doesn’t exist. In the summer, the harbour is a buzz with all types of boats. With tuition and hire easily available, it’s hard to resist getting involved.

The clean sandy beaches and unspoilt coves around the estuary make it perfect for families, while the shops, restaurants, alleyways and flights of steps make the town itself fun to explore.

However, the coastal paths and National Trust gardens make walking a major attraction and the amazing birdlife, wildlife and vistas bring visitors from far and wide.

The scenery, sea air, ferry trips, cosy pubs, excellent restaurants, art galleries and shopping all provide immediate things to do, but there is so much more besides.

Diving, sailing, walking, fishing, waterskiing, paddle boarding, kyaking. windsurfing, power boat training, golfing and photography courses can all be arranged locally very easily and Salcombe enjoys excellent regattas and music festivals nearby throughout the summer months.

There is a tennis club in town, a horse riding centre a few miles away, and local Farmers Markets. The famous surfing beach of Bantham is just around the corner and little further on, the hotel on Burgh Island, just off Bigbury-on-Sea.

The South West Coast Path has recently achieved a listing in Lonely Planets’ Great Adverntures book, and is the only hike in the UK to be mentioned. They describe it as “walking at its most diverse and most spectacular”.

The many bridle ways and narrow lanes that criss-cross this part of south Devon, make cycling popular if you enjoy the hilly landscape.

Salcombe is also a joy for foodies. The excellent family butcher, the bakery and the family run grocers (not to mention the fabulous sweet shop), all make buying everyday essentials easy and pleasurable. However, Salcombe Dairy Ice Cream, is made in the town; Salcombe Smokies are smoked mackerel, caught locally and Devon Pasties are available in pubs and shops alike. There are excellent delicatessens, so if you don’t fancy cooking you really don’t need to.

However for many it’s the simple pleasures of making sandcastles, rock pooling, relaxing on the beach, painting or sitting watching the world go by which they enjoy the most.
