4 Sandhills House is an apartment in Salcombe, Devon, sleeping 6 in 3 bedrooms with fantastic sea views.
If you are looking for a spacious and tastefully appointed apartment, the soothing sounds of the sea and amazing views from the sunny terrace of the nearby beach and coastline, well look no further. 4 Sandhills is a south-facing luxury retreat, perched on the hillside above the golden beach of North Sands close to Salcombe. From here an enjoyable scenic walk brings you to the town itself, full of interesting shops, inns and restaurants and on the way you can appreciate the beauty of this picturesque estuary, busy with the comings and goings of boats attracted to this yachting haven. Back on the terrace, we can't think of a more pleasant place to be whilst enjoying an al fresco meal or a quiet read in the sun and the sunroom provides a vantage point from which to observe the ever-changing moods and colours of the sea, whatever the weather. This is a great destination at any time of year and a bracing walk along the South West Coastal path in the spring or autumn can be followed by a cosy evening in the spacious lounge, listening to the crackle of the real fire. This is a very special holiday destination which we recommend highly.

Lying within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Salcombe is a hugely popular resort town close to the mouth of the Kingsbridge Estuary. From your Salcombe holiday cottage there are plenty of sandy beaches nearby including the pet-friendly Salcombe North Sands which is just a short walk from Salcombe town center. The Winking Prawn has a fantastic outside seating area and renowned food and is within yards of the beach. Travel to South Sands Beach from Salcombe's Whitestrand Quay on the South Sands Ferry and find large areas of golden sand perfect for making sand castles and rock pools to explore as well as Bo’s Beach Café which also sells beach accessories. East Portlemouth Beach is another that can be reached by ferry and is a series of coves with golden sands and clear blue water more reminiscent of beaches in the Indian Ocean making a swim almost irresistible. If you are looking for a walk with a difference wait for low tide and make your way up to Mill Bay along the coast for another great beach experience.
Lots of activities in Salcombe, both on and off the water. With the calm estuary there is a great choice of water based activities including sea kayaks, paddle boarding, a surf school, sailing both yacht and dinghy, estuary cruises both leisurely and adrenalin filled, schools for yachting and power boats and even donut rides and coasteering. Off the water relax at the Salcombe Distillery at the tasting bar or create your own gin at the gin school. Try your hands at the Salcombe Shooting School or travel up to Pennywell Farm and see all the animals and cuddle a miniature pig! Soft play can be found at Kidz and Co for those rainy days. The Brownston Gallery is one of Devon's finest art galleries showing contemporary pieces from both established and emerging artists. The walking here is excellent with a 3 mile walk along the South West Coast Path to Bolt Head being among the most popular with stunning coastal views.
Places to visit while staying in Salcombe include the Salcombe Maritime Museum, a collection of models, paintings, photographs and artefacts which tell the story of Salcombe’s links with ships and the sea. Carved into the cliff 80m above the sea, Overbeck’s Gardens and Museum provides breath-taking views over Salcombe Estuary with a diverse collection of plants and an interesting history. Finally, you are in a stunning part of the country whether you are attracted by the coastline or the countryside the Salcombe area delivers on all fronts.
