Whether a getaway for two is on the horizon or a trip with the family, Fairview is a relaxing base to come together and spend some quality time in a calming destination. A flight of stairs leads down to the lower ground floor accommodation, where you will discover a sitting room with comfy seating, and a dining table well-appointed for the wonderful bay window. The kitchen boasts a charming set-up, matched accordingly with wood effect counter-tops, and sage coloured units, a lovely place to dish up your favourite meals throughout the day. There is even a little breakfast bar situated next to the archway, where you can relax with refreshments or enjoy a warm cup of tea in your free time. Snuggle up in one of the two bedrooms as the night draws in, both neutrally styled with a glimpse of colour, and low lighting to bring a warm glow to the pretty sleeping arrangement. A family bathroom finishes the interior, comprising a quality suite with a bath and a shower. Outdoors, the private lawn is situated to the back of the property, your very own cosy, superb patio garden with furniture. A perfect spot to relax on a warm sunny day. There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck’s where you can wander through the subtropical gardens. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing, kayaking or a more leisurely boat trip? The southern tip of Devon provides some amazing scenery and picturesque vistas to make your stay that much more memorable.
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.
