Situation And Description - Salcombe is Devon's southernmost town and has a beautiful harbour, unspoilt estuary and an excellent range of fine shops, restaurants and inns etc. A mecca for yachting and water sports, Salcombe also offers lovely sandy beaches and spectacular cliff-top walking and is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. There are many places of outstanding natural beauty close by, including Thurlestone, Bigbury and Hope Cove, whilst Kingsbridge is some 6 miles distant and offers an excellent and varied range of shops, services and facilities.

We understand that the original property (a bungalow) was built in the early 1970s. Since then it has been extended to now provide most spacious family-sized accommodation which is gas centrally heated and double glazed throughout.

It is, though, the position of the property which is likely to be of greatest appeal to most buyers: from its elevated position above Salcombe, Mapperley Lodge enjoys uninterrupted views over the town and Shadycombe Creek to the estuary with East Portlemouth and open countryside beyond.
