Two coves west from yachtie Salcombe, this breezy hotel stands above the beach with gorgeous views of water, hill and sky. There are clean sands, safe swimming, and a sea tractor to get you to the coves.
It’s a short walk from the hotel to Overbecks (NT) for a fascinating house and beautiful garden, join the South West Coast Path from here and walk all day, surf on Bantham beach, catch the taxi shuttle to Salcombe and try out deep sea fishing. Return to dinner in the restaurant – in summer out on the vast terrace. Below you a beach for swimming (towels provided) and crabbing (gear is here); the sailing school is next door.
Estuary-facing rooms are airy and bright, while the apartment suites are brilliant for families or anyone who wants the fabulous position but not the full hotel experience. Breakfast is still included in the rate.
