About Philip and Sarah Davies

We live in London, England, with our son and daughter and 4-year old black labrador 'Toffie'.

Philip and Sarah Davies purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Philip and Sarah Davies chose South Hams

When we found Penn Cottage it was love at first sight. It is a delightful cottage in a central quiet location. We have furnished it to a high standard to make a welcoming home from home.

Salcombe is a special place, in and out of season. It is big enough to offer a lot of activities and variety shops, pubs and restaurants, yet small enough to be friendly. The estuary is a fabulous 'play area' for adults and children alike - with beaches, boating, sailing, walking, day trips and more.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautifully furnished and presented.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had an absolutely wonderful time at beautiful Penn Cottage. The owners have covered everything you could ever need for a fantastic holiday from home comforts in the cottage as well as information on the local area / walks / pubs / restaurants / contact numbers etc. The cottage itself is in a fabulous location in Salcombe centre and the views from the bedroom balcony are of the estuary and are quite stunning. We would gladly recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay in Salcombe. We certainly will be looking to book again in future.

Thank you Philip & Sarah for your thoughtfulness.

Penn Cottage was an absolute joy to stay in. It's immaculately well presented, perfectly located and has the most breathtaking views of the estuary. Philip was brilliant from the moment I booked and all the way through the process. There really couldn't have been anything else that we could have asked for. Will recommend again and again and would love to return sometime.

The perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing stay in Penn Cottage. It is beautiful well appointed cottage, great location and the views from the master bedroom are amazing. We enjoyed the suggested walks with our dogs and the maps in the cottage were a great help!

The wine & card on arrival was an unexpected treat!

Looking forward to coming back next year

Idyllic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Penn Cottage is so cosy, homely and is beautifully decorated to the highest standard with everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday. The beds and bedding so comfortable we slept really well. Easy walking distance to lovely pubs/restaurants nearby and amazing views of the harbour from our bedroom balcony. Philip the owner really helpful and a delight to deal with. Highly recommend.

Comfortable, accommodating and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at Penn Cottage, we deemed it to be quaint, cosy and welcoming. A very well equipped and exceptionally clean cottage. Situated in a perfect location, all amenities are but a 2 minute walk away. Our hosts, Philip and Sarah, were very informative and helpful prior to and during our stay. Added bonus: it was dog friendly.

We will most certainly return in the near future.

Perfect cottage in Salcombe

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect cottage in central Salcombe (2 min walk to Fore Street) yet it is on a little road so still quiet and away from the hustle & bustle of the main thoroughfare.

Philip was incredibly helpful beforehand and made the booking process very easy. The cottage is definitely a home to the family and it feels cosy and comfortable as soon as you walk through the door. A bottle of wine was kindly left with a lovely note welcoming us to the cottage - it is these little touches that puts this cottage above many others I have stayed in.

All rooms are beautifully decorated and there is everything you could possible need packed into a small space. The beds are exceptionally comfortable and the view from the master is to die for.

We had a wonderful stay at Penn Cottage and I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who is looking for a central and beautiful home from home.

Penn Cottage is less than five minutes' walk to the ferries leaving from Whitestrand, in the centre of Salcombe, across the estuary to fabulous beaches at East Portlemouth (5 minutes) or round the headland to South Sands (10 minutes).
