Our Area

Herbert Road is a broad beech tree lined avenue leading into the town centre. A 12-minute walk (down the hill!) will take you to Salcombe’s restaurants, cafes, shops and pubs. There is also a very convenient Spar corner store just 3 minutes’ walk from the house. North Sands with the celebrated Winking Prawn Café and restaurant is just a 20 minute walk away. A further 10 minutes walk beyond North Sands brings you to South Sands beach with kayak and paddle board hire, beach cafe and the South Sands Hotel Restaurant and Bar. The new Harbour Beach Club and Hotel is also located at South Sands. This is also the point of arrival and departure for the colourful South Sands ferry which will take you back to the quayside in Salcombe along the beautiful estuary. There’s a ferry from The Ferry Inn in Salcombe to East Portlemouth taking you on a 3-minute trip to the many stunning sandy beaches across the estuary. Salcombe is also a staging post for one of the most dramatic and delightful stretches of the Southwest Coastal Path situated within our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
