Patio Garden


Salcombe lies at the mouth of Kingsbridge Estuary in the attractive South Hams area of South Devon. Salcombe has a wide range of clothing stores, art galleries, independent boutique, restaurants and delicatessens. Crabbing on the quay has been loved by generations of children, and the house is in the ideal location for boating, trips to the beach, ambling into town and indulging in a spot of people watching from the pretty terrace. There are several companies that offer kayak excursions and hire, paddle board sessions and boat hire.

There are picturesque river excursions during the summer months to Kingsbridge in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast and mini ferry trips across the Salcombe Harbour to the sandy coves of East Portlemouth and South Sands. The gardens at Overbecks National Trust offer some of the best views of the Salcombe Estuary. This fascinating property is perched on the South West Coastal path and is the perfect resting place for a spot of lunch.
