Cottages in Salcombe, Hope Cove and Thurlestone
Perched on the most southerly tip along the golden shores of Devon, Salcombe is a stunning holiday destination surrounded by picturesque villages, magnificent AONB scenery, beautiful beaches, and is just a short drive from the mystic woodlands of Dartmoor.
This spectacular coastal town sits on the grassy banks of the Salcombe Estuary on Devon’s most southerly point. Bordered by lush green countryside, patchwork fields and quiet waterside meadows, Salcombe is known for its sea views. Head to the water’s edge, where moored fishing boats bob gently in the harbour. Or stroll into town, and discover a world of boutique shops, high street brands, restaurants and cafés, and quaint fisherman’s cottages tucked away within its maze of bustling streets. And with hundreds of events each year, including the infamous Salcombe Crab Festival - or Crabfest - you’ll find days of fun for everyone by the azure waters of this breathtaking town.
Fancy a slower pace of life? From the sweeping sands of Thurlestone to the sheltered bays of South Sands and Hope Cove, you won’t have to wander far in the South Hams to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
A picture-perfect hamlet with wild coastal walks and a magnificent golf course, Thurlestone is an idyllic destination for the peace-seeking traveller. Or, head to the charming fishing village of Hope Cove, tucked away along the South Devon headland. It has a contemporary local pub that sits overlooking the golden sands, and a myriad of thriving rock pools, perfect for quiet family days by the water – there’s a beautiful beach perfect for everyone in the South Hams.
Take a gentle stroll along the South West Coast Path, enjoy an ice-cream by the lapping waters of the harbour, take the ferry across to the shores of Mill Bay or indulge in a frothy hot chocolate and some delicious seafood at the Winking Prawn.
Families, couples, friends and loyal dogs – you’ll find everyone's dream adventure in Salcombe.
