Overview


With its stone and pastel cottages and pretty country lanes that spill down towards the turquoise waters’ edge, the pretty South Devon town of Salcombe has long been a favourite among discerning home-owners, sailors and holidaymakers. 



Surrounded by the rolling South Hams hills and with pretty sheltered coves dotted around its crescent shaped estuary, Salcombe and the surrounding area lie within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In fact the whole area is a Marine Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Marine Local Nature Reserve. 

The pretty High Street, once home to the town’s 18th century shipyards, manages to maintain Salcombe’s traditional village feel and whichever way you turn, you’ll find quaint and quirky shops, chic boutiques and stylish restaurants and coffee shops.



You’ll also find two banks, a Health Centre, post office and a dentist in the town, together with a library and, in the warmer months, a heated outdoor swimming pool in Onslow Road.



The crystal-clear water of the Salcombe-Kingsbridge estuary is, naturally the town’s main attraction and in the summer months, against a back-drop of brilliant white sails, you’ll find yachts racing, ferries crossing, crab boats fishing and water-skiers and windsurfers taking advantage of the wonderfully mild climate. Underwater too, there’s plenty of activity as the estuary is home to a rare seahorse population, together with dolphins and seals.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities


Whatever your tastes, families moving to Salcombe will find a wonderful selection of restaurants, pubs, shops and delis offering the finest local produce and the freshest of seafood. Take a trip down Fore Street to visit The Victoria Inn, allegedly TV chef Mary Berry’s favourite place to eat in town or, the Island Street Bar & Grill on Island Street where a lively atmosphere coupled with great salads, crab cakes and cocktails will ensure everyone has a great time.


Treat yourselves to ‘Friday Fizz n’ Chips’ at the exclusive Salcombe Harbour Hotel and Spa or, for something a little less formal, visit the fabulous Winking Prawn beach bar on nearby North Sands where you can sit outside and watch the waves. At night, the indoor menu features delicious local seafood and regular barbeques.


The Salcombe Estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages all of which make it an excellent base for dinghy sailing, watersports, boating and long walks along the beautiful coastline. Salcombe is also a famous yachting centre and provides a perfect cruising base from which to explore France, the Channel Islands and the beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country.


There is a local tennis, rugby and football club and, for those who love walking, part of the South West Coastal Path runs across the cliffs that border the estuary.


Explorers will love the fact that a new ‘undiscovered’ beach is never far away too. Take a short trip on the East Portlemouth Ferry and you’ll land on glorious sandy beaches that offer sheltered swimming and stunning views back towards Salcombe.


Local attractions are many and various, from the National Trust’s sub-tropical gardens at Overbecks to The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth or Woodlands Leisure Park - the largest family theme park in the south west.

Education

With its gentle village atmosphere and family-friendly focus, Salcombe is lucky to have a delightful Primary School whose children have been invited to help name some of the new roads at Batson Cross .

Just a few miles away at the head of the estuary, 11-18 year olds are well catered for at Kingsbridge Academy and potential university students will find outstanding opportunities for further education at both Plymouth and Exeter universities. According to The Times Higher Education international rankings, Exeter is in the top one per cent of universities in the world.

Adults who are interested in going ‘back to school,’ or perhaps exploring a new hobby, will also find a wide variety of courses on offer at The Mansion in Totnes, one of Devon’s Adult and Community Learning centres.
