Apartment in Salcombe, South Devon, England - Peaceful Location, Just A 10 Minute Walk From Salcombe Town And Several Sandy Beaches
My husband and I are Interior Designers, based in Surrey. Our 21 year old daughter has grown up digging on Salcombe's sandy beaches and mucking about on boats in the Estuary!
Diana purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Diana chose Salcombe
The Salcombe estuary is arguably one of the most scenic seaside locations in the UK. For us, like so many others it was love at first sight, Salcombe is the perfect place to unwind as it has something to suit everyone. We really feel with have the best of all worlds here, a lovely bustling town, full of life with lovely boutiques and restaurants, but with easy access to the coastal paths where you can easily find your own peaceful spot to admire the gorgeous views. The area really is a boating paradise, whether you want to Sail at the Island Cruising Club, take a ferry to one of the sandy beaches, hop on a scenic tour or hire your own vessel and explore the inland creeks (and pubs!)
What makes this Apartment unique
Wellingtons is the perfect choice for a relaxing break, you really don't need to get back in the car for the duration of your stay. Everything is in walking distance, We are a ten minute downhill stroll to both Salcombe town and Northsands Beach, where the famous Winking Prawn beach cafe/bistro is situated & open all day. Being just a short distance from the town, Wellingtons is a lovely peaceful retreat, especially in the high season when the town is bustling, you can come back for a swim in the lovely outdoor pool.

Lovely holiday apartment only minus was noise from above and below
When apartment below had a BBQ you couldn’t sit on the balcony due to the smoke etc
Pool added bonus but other users didn’t respect but not to give a good review just on the two minus would be unjust
Dear Joyce, Thank you for your comments. I’m pleased to hear you loved the apartment. We work very hard to ensure the property is if the highest standard & the pool is warm and sparkling! I’m very sorry your experience was spoilt by a barbecue in the apartment below, this is the first time this has happened & I’m sorry your visit coincided with a neighbours burning sausage! I will pass on your comments to my fellow residents. As you know this is a small development of just 4 properties, all treasured homes & all residents value the peace and tranquility of our unique & beautiful location.
Just had a fabulous week at "Wellingtons". Gorgeous apartment in a stunning location, the view from the main bedroom and balcony was breathtaking. The swimming pool was a delight after a day at the beach and the water was so warm. Great to have a parking space in Salcombe. Would definitely recommend and we can't wait to go back!.
