south sands ferry

Not just for kids.... For just £3.70 each way, this quaint little sea tractor ferry will take you from South Sands Beach to Salcombe.  We think it is the best/most fun way to get to Salcombe.

Soar Mill cove hotel spa


We are lucky to be neighbours with the lovely Soar Mill Cove Hotel Spa (a short walk from the cottage), which offers the following:

  • Heated saltwater indoor swimming pool
  • Sauna
  • Discovery spa
  • Gym
  • Lawn tennis court (seasonal)

We enjoy the 'Dip and Dine' offer.

Overbeck national trust

Between the cottage and South Sands, linked by a scenic footpath lies this hidden paradise: a subtropical garden, filled with exotic and rare plants- it's hard to believe you're not in the Med! The views from the garden over the Salcombe estuary and coast are truly breathtaking. Well worth a visit.
