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.

About Rebecca Morgan
My Parents bought this cottage 40 years ago, from the family of the fisherman who used to live here. When we were 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, we love 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 third generation of our family enjoy coming to Salcombe, with their own friends. 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
Why Rebecca Morgan chose Salcombe
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!
What makes this house unique
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, we 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 our favourite time in Salcombe
Guestbook comments from the manager
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.
