Holiday Cottages in Salcombe
Salcombe in Devon is proof that you don’t need to jet to the other side of the world to enjoy a beach holiday with superb scenery, soft sands and warm waters. All you need to do is book one of our Salcombe Cottages. Situated in the South Hams, the town is easy enough to get to whether you’re travelling by car, train or catching a flight.

Devon is well-known for catching the best of the summer sun and, with Salcombe North Sands and Salcombe South Sands virtually on the doorsteps of our holiday cottages in Salcombe, there’s no excuse for not packing your swimming costume and at least one bucket and spade. If you want to liven things up a bit, you can hire kayaks, go water-skiing or jump some waves in a power boat. If you want to take things a bit easier, there are fishing boats and dinghies for hire; pack your bait, your rod and some liquid refreshment and you’re all set.
Is Salcombe good for families?
On the face of it, Salcombe is a picture-postcard town, as sleepy as you might expect it to be. However, with a good number of attractions nearby, there’s no reason hear the words “I’m bored” at any point in your holiday. Hiring one of our extensive range of holiday cottages in Salcombe for you and your family puts you within easy reach of a bounty of things to see and do. Woodlands Leisure Park, near Dartmouth, is a kid’s paradise. With zipwires, zorbing, swings, slides and plenty of rides, it’s the largest theme park in Devon. As a bonus, a large part of it is indoors; perfect if the weather’s not on your side.
To get your kids to soak up a little history, a trip to Salcombe Castle ought to do the job. Standing on a rocky outcrop, it’s got all the right ingredients and is crumbly and ruined enough to inspire young imaginations. For a bit of back-to-nature magic, get down to the Buckfast Butterflies and Otter Sanctuary, where you’ll get to wander through a kaleidoscope of butterflies and watch the otters at play. It also happens to be near Buckfast Abbey, where the monks still make mead, which the grown-ups might like to sample.
