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 Berryâ€™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 â€˜Friday Fizz nâ€™ Chipsâ€™ 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 â€˜undiscoveredâ€™ beach is never far away too. Take a short trip on the East Portlemouth Ferry and youâ€™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 Trustâ€™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.
