Step out onto the balcony for elevated sights across the estuary, and relax with your morning coffee or evening sip of something stronger. Across the three floors you’ll find four bedrooms, two with the luxury of en-suite wet rooms, and two bunk bedrooms – the ideal hidey-hole for younger guests. The ground floor master bedroom is bright and welcoming with its light furnishings and patio doors to the private decking. Here you’ll find a large rattan sofa – the perfect place to gaze across the rooftops and chimneypots to the coast beyond. The first floor twin comes with cabin bunkbeds, and winding up to the second floor, via traditional, narrow stairs, you’ll find an attic king-size double, complete with en-suite. Settle in bed beneath the skylight, from where you might even spot a star or two at the close of the day. A parking pass for one car is provided for the long-stay car park (approx. 5-7 mins walk away). Just a few steps from Seagull Cottage are plenty of pubs, boutique shops and restaurants, as well as the waterfront. Drop a fishing line from the harbour in the hope to catch a crab, watch the sailing boats, or stroll along the beach at sunset. Travel a little further and South Devon’s entire coastline is your oyster, with pretty coves, beaches bays dotted beside the sea. Wander the South West Coast Path, get the heart racing with speedboat rides or relax on a fishing boat trip. Seagull Cottage is an elegant escape for those seeking a central, seaside base.
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.
