This perfectly petite town offers something for everyone; the lone traveller, cuddled-up couple, or a big family holiday.

Getting There

How to get to Salcombe

By car, simply follow the M4/M5 or M25/M3/A303/A30 to Exeter and then the A38/A384/A381. If you're coming by train, the nearest stations are Totnes (33 km) and Plymouth (40 km).

Food & Drink

Where to eat in Salcombe

On the estuary, Salcombe welcomes a wealth of ultra-fresh seafood. For delicious local flavours, try Dick and Wills. Centrally located, it’s made even more delightful by their large terrace. Watch the boats roll into the harbour while the sun sets over rocky cliffs.

In the heart of the town, you'll love Captain Flint’s Restaurant. They deliver excellent fresh pizzas, burgers, pastas, steaks, and salads. It's perfect for the pockets, with great quality and portion sizes at reasonable prices, and perfect to keep the little ones (and the big ones!) happy. Booking is not available, so it's best to show up early.

Feeling a little peckish after your evening meal? By night, the town’s bakery becomes a very popular (and very tasty) creperie.

Choosing a Salcombe holiday letting also means you can organise your holiday on your own schedule, including meals. Cosy up in your holiday cottage and a delicious home-cooked meal from local produce. The town offers traditional butchers, delis, bakeries and corner shops. If they don't have what you’re looking for, Tesco and Morrison’s are just a short drive away.

Weather & Climate

The weather in Salcombe

While the British weather is not renowned for its predictability, average temperatures from June to September should be around 19-21 degrees Celsius. Be sure to check the weather reports before your arrival, in case you need an extra jumper, or perhaps some Factor 50 suncream!

Attractions

Seaside fun in Salcombe

Salcombe has plenty of clean, sandy beaches - so bring your flip-flops and towels, take a blissful dip in cool waters and relax in the sun!

There are car parks at most beaches, but regular ferry boats also run from the town harbour, just minutes from your Salcombe holiday home, over to the main beach (5 min) and a larger one further up the coast (15-20 min). It’s not free, but the fun boat ride is well worth it – especially if you’re visiting with little ones. Don’t be afraid to find your own cove if you’re feeling more adventurous!

Feel the need for speed? Don’t miss out on RIB rides around the coast of Salcombe. Alternatively, you can hire your own boat, or even take a fun boating class.

Local Attractions

Things to do in Salcombe

Need to stretch your legs? At Salcombe’s information centre you can find scenic walking routes suiting families, keen hikers, and the more experienced athletes among us. Every walk incorporates the magnificent South West Coastal Path.

Alternatively, have a gentle meander through Salcombe’s streets. They are brimming with individual boutiques, galleries showing work from local artists, cafes and ice cream shops, plus an award-winning fudge and chocolate shop, Roly’s fudge pantry.

Overbeck’s garden and museum is an absolute must-see. A National Trust property, the house and gardens sit on top of the cliff face. Due to its warm micro-climate, it hosts fascinating semi-tropical gardens. It's perfect for a game of hide and seek, or for avid gardeners and botanists. Afterwards, sit on the lawn and sample the ultimate British delight: tea with fresh scones and a generous dollop of clotted cream, while taking in the spectacular sea view.

Further afield, but definitely worth the effort, is Greenway house and gardens. Another National Trust site, it was the holiday home of adored and celebrated writer, Agatha Christie. Here, you can find the author’s inspiration for some of her most famous work. Delightful for the whole family!

Close to your holiday home, you'll be able to find the old spirit of Salcombe with traditional singers and a local beer or two in the town's classic pubs. The Ferry Inn is worth a visit, with a great location right on the water’s edge.

Renting a Salcombe holiday home gives you a unique window into hundreds of years of British heritage. It's a friendly and endearing town, and with its surrounding natural beauty, a holiday here will stay with you for a long time. So why delay? Book your Salcome holiday letting now!
