Overview

Recommended Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Hot Tub

Nestled in two acres of woodland with the salty sea breeze of Salcombe North Sands in the air, this striking, contemporary home is filled with light and warmth and is available to up to six guests, offering access to three well-appointed bedrooms.

A former writer’s sanctuary, Little Salcombe enjoys a peaceful seaside location perched in the woods of the Devonshire coast. A show-stopping recreation space blends the outside with the inside benefiting from full-length glass sliding doors that open out to a treetop view and a spectacular outdoor terrace. Your evenings here can be spent soaking in the bubbles of the hot tub whilst gazing out through the canopy of pine trees to the sparkling sea glinting in the distance.

A large table tennis table, hanging pods and plenty of outdoor seating aided by easy flow from indoors to the terrace make this a perfect place for blowing off steam in the evening.

Take your drinks inside to the squishy sofas of the sitting room, with a roaring log fire for those chillier evenings. A further open plan kitchen and living space offers panoramic views through the floor-to-ceiling window, leading to an outdoor dining table for an al fresco BBQ meal amongst the treetops. The well-equipped kitchen has all you will need, and a little extra besides, from two ovens, a hob and a combo microwave to a dishwasher and Nespresso machine for morning coffees taken on the deck. Why not take advantage of the local seafood and bring home a freshly caught lobster or crab to serve around the eight-seater dining table?

The sleeping accommodation is spread over the ground and upper floor. Two double bedrooms on the ground floor share a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower and bath, plus a further double with a picture window. Upstairs a master suite offers seaside views to be enjoyed from your morning lie-in, with an en-suite shower. A twin room with a double bunk offers a perfect place for sleepovers, filled with light and ideal for younger family members to make their own. A further family bathroom is available to a king-size bedroom and a bunk room, complete the selection of sleeping options on offer.

Guests have the option to choose three specific bedrooms to use. However, it’s important to note that guests are not permitted to access all the bedrooms in the property but only the three they have selected. If a larger group wishes to have access to all bedrooms, they can click here to book Salcombe Retreat, which permits access to all bedrooms and accommodates 12-16 guests.

With a seamless flow from inside to outdoors, this gorgeous seaside home and its spectacular living spaces and terrace amongst the pines create the feel of a spectacular treehouse! With thoughtful design throughout, artwork on the walls and a range of entertainment spaces from cosy fireside nooks, artful hanging pods and bubbling hot tubs on the terrace, this is a memorable holiday escape ideally placed in the characterful town of Salcombe.

Little Salcombe is on the South Devon coast, just outside the beautiful coastal town of Salcombe. Salcombe sits on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary making it one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. Located within the South Devon Area of Outsanding Natural Beauty, Salcombe is known for its spectacular coastal views and rolling surrounding countryside, as well as being a centre for sailing. Salcombe is a great base for a holiday spent on the water or at the water’s edge.

With its estuary location, Salcombe is a water sports haven - whether it be sailing, kayaking, surfing or paddle boarding - the crystal blue waters are inviting. The local beaches are fabulous, with golden sand and turquoise.

This delightful town draws a glittering crowd, and offers so much, from charming artisan shops to surf lessons in the sun, and coastal pathway walks or tours of the local gin distillery.

Dining out is a sumptuous affair, among our picks, would be the Victoria Inn, an award-winning gastro pub with large beer garden which is very popular in the summer. Down by the fish quay, the Crab Shed is a must for seafood.

For the “beachy” vibe, try The Winking Prawn, or the homemade crab tagliatelle with garlic, chilli and lemon at The Crabshell Inn. For smart Mediterranean chic, the Salcombe Harbour Hotel is an excellent choice.

Taking a boat tour is a wonderful treat, to be able to drop in on hidden coves or hop a secluded beach. Or stay on dry land, to walk to North Sands in just seven minutes for safe swimming and views of the Salcombe Estuary, Sunny Cove and Wolf Rock.

A stroll down Salcombe’s Fore Street will reveal a hotbed of cosy bookshops, quaint coffee parlours and beachwear boutiques, whilst further afield visitors will chance upon art galleries, boat-building yards and ‘live’ food stalls.

For surf lessons with video analysis, head to Discovery Surf, or try stand-up paddle-boarding with Waterborn. Take the steep and scenic walk from Salcombe to Bolt Head. Or follow the East Portlemouth and Gara Rock Trail along the South West Coast Path above the harbour, passing the romantic ruins of Fort Charles.

This part of Devon offers sublime natural beauty, alongside some of the prettiest and most sought after seaside towns, brimming with water sports potential and fine dining experiences, there really is something for everyone.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens Ideal for Xmas/NY

With over two acres of woodland and large lawns to explore, Little Salcombe offers an adventure for children of all ages.

The entertainment possibilities in this home are endless; whether it be a table tennis tournament, a movie on the HD television or roaming the wilderness outside, this home has it covered. Parents can relax in the knowledge that this is a space and open plan home; cots and high chairs can be provided.

The south coast of Devon has so much to offer for all ages; from Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, Woodlands Leisure Park or rock pooling at South Sands beaches. Kids can hunt for glow-worms or try mono-fin swimming at North Sands, meet seals and dolphins on a sea kayak trip, or lions and wolves at Dartmouth Zoo.

Try a little mono-fin swimming or hunting luminescent glow-worms. Or head to wide and sandy Thurlestone Sands for sunbathing or spotting rare birds in the nature reserve. From here, it’s a short hop to the iconic South Devon Coastal Path.

Head to Slapton Sands and Torcross Beach for fine water activities including surfing, windsurfing and canoeing. Or, for sandcastles and swimming, try Blackpool Sands, a long crescent with aquamarine seas backed by emerald-green wooded cliffs. For further splashing, Dartmouth Heated Outdoor Pool has all the bases covered.

Children of all ages will love the novelty of this chic, “treehouse” home. With its relaxed atmosphere and woodland location, smaller members of the group will be well-set for an unforgettable holiday.
