The property

This magnificent detached house sits prominently on the hill over South Sands beach in Salcombe.

With amazing coastal views to the town a mile away, this is spacious, contemporary accommodation for gatherings of family or friends.

A long flight of steps leads down to the front door to the impressive hallway and the big sitting room with its bay windows looking over the beach.

You will find four bedrooms on this floor, and then the other fun children's bedroom on the lower floor, together with the stunning long room which makes a stylish second sitting room where you can watch movies on the home cinema system, play on the Wii and listen to music.

On this level is the well equipped sunshiny kitchen, perfect for preparing dinner to enjoy in the dining room with atmospheric lighting.

Doors slide open from this dining room and the long sitting room to a lovely enclosed terrace for sunbathing and eating around the barbecue whilst enjoying those fascinating views.

If you don't feel like cooking, wander out to the bar and restaurant at The South Sands Hotel or head into town for a range of good eateries and interesting little boutique shops.

NT Overbecks with its quirky Victorian collection and pretty gardens is a good place to visit.

For activity, boats can be hired locally, you can go fishing, play tennis or walk the iconic Coast Path.

For a choice of more lovely beaches, go to Thurlestone or Bigbury-on-Sea for big stretches of sand.

Underbecks is a truly stunning house, perfect for a unique and memorable holiday.

About the location


Kingsbridge 7 miles; Dartmouth 21 miles; Plymouth 24 miles; Paignton 26 miles.

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.

Note: No stag or hen parties
