Salcombe is renowned as a sailing and boating centre, located beside one of the loveliest estuaries in the South West with miles of sheltered water and fine sandy beaches on either side towards its mouth. The popular town has an excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Sailmakers Cottage has a marvellous waterfront location in the very heart of Salcombe with spellbinding views across the harbour. The cottage has been created out of part of an old boat store and the conversion features the use of some splendid old timbers, exposed stonework to some of the window reveals and rustic timber doors, giving plenty of character.

Outside there is a small garden in front of the property enclosed by metal railings and perfect as a sitting out area for catching the morning and evening sun and watching all the activity. The property also presents the unusual opportunity of having a private mooring facility.
