    “Beautiful house in amazing location...”

    Having recently returned from a week in The Wood during the half term break we would have no hesitation in recommending this house to any large groups. On arrival, we were all blown away by the beauty of the location and corresponding sea views. We were met by the Property Manager (Deborah) who took the time to show us around the house and everything was in great condition. Being a group of 19 (10 adults and 9 children - ranging from 3 to 9 years old) we are always nervous about how a holiday home would cater for our needs and accommodate so many of us under one roof, but we were all very satisfied by the living conditions. The sleeping quarters were clean and spacious and tastefully decorated, with a decent amount of bathroom facilities to meet our needs. There were travel cots and extra beds available making it easy to juggle the room configurations when the inevitable happened on the first night with the older children ending up in one room together! The bathrooms were all clean, modern and well stocked. What really made our stay perfect however, was the living quarters downstairs. The Kitchen was large and spacious with casual dining for the children’s dinner time and ideal for family breakfasts together. The large decking area provided the perfect setting for dinner when the weather allowed and you could not ask for a better vista to enjoy a glass of wine in the late afternoon/ evening. It was only a short walk down to South Sands beach with ample activities including Kayak and Paddle Board hire, along with the ferry to Salcombe itself. A 10 minute walk along the road led to North Sands with it's excellent beach and the highlight of our stay... The Winking Prawn restaurant, serving excellent food in a beautiful setting. All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend The Wood to anyone and will definitely be returning again as I think we will struggle to find a holiday home that meets so many of our requirements, whilst also offering such incredible views.

The property

High on a hill above South Sands beach in Salcombe is this big impressive detached house.

Standing in its own garden and in prime position in one of the UK's most stunning towns, this is exceptional accommodation for families or groups of friends.

From the parking area off a private lane, head down the steps into the smart hall, off which you will find a splendid big kitchen, extremely well equipped and with a big dining area which opens to a large enclosed deck where you can sit with evening drinks and take in the amazing views of the estuary.

Double doors open to the sitting room, also with those views and an open fire to gather round and watch TV or listen to the Sonos music system.

On this level you have a handy twin bedroom (zip-link), or take the stairs up to five further bedrooms, all with fantastic views over the sea.

The master double is especially beautiful.

On the top floor, the children will love sharing the big en suite room with lots of beds, where they can sleep and play table top football as well.

Outside the garden is as spectacular as the interior, with 1½ steep acres of space where you can wander, sit, sunbathe, play table tennis or head down the steps and through the garden to the lovely beach.

You may not want to venture further than this lovely house and garden and the beach below, but if the mood takes you, wander into fascinating Salcombe town with its boutique shops, great restaurants and pubs.

Maybe hire a boat to explore the waterways, play tennis or go swimming in the seasonal outdoor pool.

The pedestrian ferry is fun to catch to East Portlemouth with more great beaches.

For a little exercise, it's no hardship to take to the South West Coast Path with wonderful coastal views and the occasional bench to take a breather, or perhaps head to nearby National Trust gardens for some green-fingered inspiration.

The Wood is a unique and very special haven for enjoying one of the loveliest spots you could imagine.

Salcombe: one of the most beautifully sited small towns in Britain, at the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary, a yacht haven with creeks, sandy bays.

Waterside pubs, nice shops.

Boats to hire, fishing, superb Nat.

Trust cliff walks/gardens; museum, tennis, outdoor swimming pool (in summer); pedestrian ferry to East Portlemouth (lovely beaches, The Venus Café and Takeaway).

Thurlestone and Bigbury (golf), 6 and 8 miles.

About the location

SALCOMBE

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. 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? Whilst staying in Salcombe you must take advantage of the locally sourced seafood which is served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. The southern tip of Devon provides some spectacular scenery and picturesque vistas with a number of sandy beaches, lovely villages with thatched cottages and some fantastic opportunities for walking, including the South West Coast path.
