About Tim Goodall

We (Tim and Emma) are putting our family home up for holiday lets for the first time. 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

Why Tim Goodall chose Salcombe

Salcombe is a quintessential English seaside town. Very picturesque town, active sailing and fishing harbour with plenty of outdoor scenic and activity opportunities.

What makes this cottage unique

Our Property has the benefits of:

- easy access, on the flat, a few minutes walking distance to town

- off street parking

- outdoor living area

- all mod cons

Another wonderful stay!

Cottage is in a great location, warm and cosy with everything you could possibly need. Even has a parking space! This is our second stay for new year and we had another wonderful time. Tim the owner is great to deal with and quickly answers any queries raised. We will definitely be back and would recommend to couples and families looking for a great place to stay in Salcombe. Thank you Tim!

Lovely cottage and area!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over the xmas period with a family of 7 and had a really nice time. The cottage has everything you need and the kitchen was perfect for cooking a big xmas dinner. The location is ideal for nice walks or just a close selection of pubs and restaurants.

Perfect Salcombe family holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We (family of five including 17, 14 and 6 year old) have just returned from a wonderful (sunny!) week in Salcombe. The cottage was beautifully renovated and was perfectly situated away from the bustle of the centre but close enough for the older boys to be able to come and go with their friends nearby. We cooked quite a bit and it had everything that we needed. We will definitely be many amazing walks...and the Salcombe gin was rather nice too!

Amazing fishermans cottage in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here and would absolutely recommend, the cottage is always in brilliant condition, super clean and decorated beautifully!

The location is perfect being just off the main shopping street leading into Salcombe making it extremely easy to walk everywhere even with a buggy and toddler on scooter.

We are already looking at dates to come back next year!!

Shadycombe Cottage, Salcombe

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean, exceptionally well equipped and comfortable, just a short walk to the harbour which was lovely. Plenty of places to eat and drink and seats to take in the wonderful views.

We were able to park one car to the rear of the property, and the other a couple of minutes down the road for £40 for the week.

The cottage was very quirky and we would have loved to have made use of the garden but the weather was against us. However, we visited Overbeck, which would have been wonderful if it hadn't been pouring with rain, also went to Greenway and Saltram which were well worth visiting. The South Devon Railway was good as were the adjacent butterflies and otters.

We loved our holiday in Salcombe and would love to come back.

Thank you

There are a number of beaches within the Salcombe estuary, sandy, safe and clean. All within varying walking distances and ferries, the ferries are taken from the Ferry Inn. Clambering over the rocks to Sunny Cove or walking along the cliff tops, the views are stunning with spectacular coastal paths for lunch at Gara Rock and beyond.


The nearest airports are Exeter & Plymouth. There are trains to Plymouth and Totnes with buses to and from Salcombe. Once in Salcombe a car is not necessarily required as there is so much to do within walking distance.

Plymouth - Train, Airport & Ferry Port 25 miles 40 mins

Exeter - Airport 60 miles 1 hr drive

Bristol - Airport 120 miles 2 hrs drive

Further Details:

The local shops are very good. You will find Coleman's a family butcher , delicious baker, fishmongers, delicatessen shops, grocers, gift shops, clothing, interiors & home-wares etc and the best sweetie shop you have ever seen, which the children love. 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.
