Towns & Villages


Salcombe in the summer is full of smiling faces, sandcastles, sailing boats and select restaurants overlooking a sparkling sea.


An attractive town with an interesting history. It was once a major port for the fruit trade and, over the years, has found fame as a safe haven for family holidays and visiting yachtsmen. The narrow, main street through the town is full of delightful and unique shops.

Just outside the town is the stunning National Trust property of Overbeck's with its house, varied collections and amazing, exotic coastal garden with panoramic views over the estuary and coast.

Why not hire a boat from Whitestrand Boat Hire and explore Salcombe from the sea. It's the perfect way to take in the scenery and reach secluded coves. Cross the estuary by ferry to reach beautiful sandy beaches and coastal walks.

Visit the award-winning Salcombe Harbour Hotel overlooking the estuary.

Travel to Salcombe by bus or by bike using the great car-free cycle path from Malborough.
