About Tim Goodall
We (Tim and Emma) are putting our family home up for holiday lets. We live and work in Dubai, but have had our second home in Salcombe since 2007. Salcombe is where my wife's family live and so is somewhere we will continue to visit, in addition to the fact it is in a beautiful part of the world. The house was gutted and stripped back allowing us to create a very personal special, albeit compact, family home for our holidays in the UK. We are not letting the home as a business but more of a sustainable need given it is a second home used once a year. We have put a lot of love, care and thought into the design of the interior and outdoor spaces, and we hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
Tim Goodall purchased this Cottage in 2005

The cottage has been beautifully renovated, was totally sparkling and had everything that we needed, including towels which I thought was brilliant. My husband has a mobility issue but he managed the stairs to the first floor as the oar on one side and the side of the stairs made it possible. The parking was fantastic to have but made for a little hilarity getting in and out with my Mondeo estate.....but it is possible!!! The outside space was great to have and we managed to sit out to have coffee in March as it is a little suntrap. The amount of information provided by Tim and Emma before our visit was amazing. Re Salcombe - the cottage is easily within walking distance of the town centre and the harbour but be aware of hills if any issues with mobility and there is very little parking within the town itself. For a fab cream tea and/or cake, would recommend The Winking Prawn (totally in love with this name!). Thanks Tim and Emma for the use of your cottage, it was lovely. Only left a day early because of the amber warning for snow which proved to be a good decision - A30 closed the following day!!
Thanks so much for the nice words.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Shame the weather cut it short.
Hope to see you again in Salcombe

5th stay at 4 Shadycombe
We love staying at this cottage and the fortnight in June 2018 was our 5th visit.
We are always so relaxed in this cosy nook and when venturing out the town and sea are within easy reach. Super.
Perfect location, lovely home
We had a splendid stay here. The house was equipped with everything we needed and the rooms were lovely, light and clean. Parking was a bit of a challenge but to be honest you don’t really need your car as it’s a nice, short pleasant walk into Salcombe anyway. It was our first time here and I have to say it’s a beautiful place and I am sure we will come back again!
A little gem in Salcombe
Deceptively spacious cottage.
Well designed, good decor, everything there that you needed, including the good range of music on the iPod.
Our whole party really enjoyed our stay.
Excellent base for the coast walkers.
Tim & Emma have got the cottage spot on and reply to any queries straight away.
We all thoroughly recommend this lovely little cottage.

There is a Lloyds bank and a Boots chemist. The clothing shops are interesting and varied for wetter days. We love "Chattels" at the end of Fore street opposite the butchers, for its interesting selection of home-ware, interiors and gifts. We love the sausages from Colemans the butchers. There are numerous restaurants and pubs for eating out and serving locally caught fish or shell fish; Captain Flints has great pizza's, but it is very popular and queues are to be expected; Salcombe ice-cream is a must! For a very good curry on a Friday night at The Pilchard Inn on Burgh Island, go to Bigbury which is accessed at high tide by a tractor, or walk over the spit of sand for an adventure. Newton Ferries has The Ship Inn on the tidal river's edge. Kingsbridge has two of the usual supermarkets. Walking in the area is so varied with Dartmoor close at hand and the Ramblers welcome people to join them three times a week. There are National Trust houses, e.g. Sharpitor on the cliffs at the mouth of Salcombe estuary and another at Dartmouth.
