About James Fisher

Batson House is owned by the Fisher family who have recently renovated the house and brought it back to its former glory. They enjoy staying in this beautiful home, & then rent it out when the family are not using it. John is a lawyer living in Upton-upon-Severn, & is married to Sue. They enjoy their weekends on the beach with their daughter Olivia & their dog. James is a management consultant living in Leigh-on-sea with wife Victoria. Their children Emily & Edward love wandering around Salcombe, Emily for the shops, and Edward much prefers the crabbing!

James Fisher purchased this house in 2014

Why James Fisher chose South Hams

The family love Salcombe, having spent every summer there with their parents while growing up, so buying Batson House, close to the centre of town, was something they've always wanted to do. Salcombe is an idyllic estuary town, with something for everyone. Batson House is a short 5-minute walk into town, but its elevated position provides peace and quiet and lovely estuary glimpses. The house is spacious, and perfect for 2 families or 3 generations to enjoy a very special time away, in a very special town.

What makes this house unique

Batson House is a real home from home with everything you need for a fabulous holiday in Sunny Salcombe. It has recently been fully renovated to a very high standard and beautifully decorated throughout. As well as being within a short walking distance of all the shops, bars & restaurants in Salcombe itself, you can also easily walk to the beaches of North Sands and South Sands, and the Spar convenience store is a 5 minute walk away. There is so much to see and do in the area so please go to our Batson House website to learn more!

Batson House proved to be an excellent base for our two families to explore the delights of Salcombe. It's beautifully decorated and there are some really nice touches. Bathrooms and kitchen all very clean and modern. Nice to have a courtyard garden too. All in all wouldnt hesitate to recommend.

Beautiful period property refurbished to a very high standard

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Batson House with our Son, daughter in law, 3 month old Grandson and our 2 dogs. The house has been beautifully renovated with families in mind. The open plan kitchen/diner/living room is particularly impressive and a great space for the whole family to relax whilst Mom's cooking breakfast! The downstairs shower room was also great for showering the dogs off after a day on the beach. The property is in an elevated position about a 5 minute walk downhill to the centre of Salcombe. We would definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful house.
