Visiting Salcombe

Planing to visit Salcombe for a week in may next year. Two families (10 people), two boats. Anyone got any recommendations on self catering places to stay?

Launch or moor the boats?

Any houses with moorings?

Thanks

Rich L

Have stayed at the Salcombe for the last 2 years which is gust great!
You get your own pontoon swimming pool & the Ferry Pub is next door!
Only drawer back is the pontoon is limited to 5M boats, but great for our sib/tender!

Don't want to hijack this thread but would be very interested in anyones experiences or recommendations of any UK holiday accomadation with moorings. Maybe this would be a suitable candidate for a FAQ "where can I take my RIB for its holiday"

A couple of years ago we rented Lincombe farm. It's not actually a working farm any more as they've sold off the land, but it is a wonderful house in a beautiful, tranquil setting.

Lincombe is on the left, just before Salcombe as you come in from Marlborough and there is a boatyard down in Lincombe creek. There is a pontoon which dries out to extensive mud and a slipway but the access lanes are very narrow. These should be OK for a 5m rib as long as you don't have to reverse !

The house is beautifully furnished and has an extensive library of military & naval history (The owner is ex-RN) Huge rustic type kitchen with an Aga and at least 4 bedrooms, maybe 5 (Can't remember, ain't that sad)

From memory, (again very poor) rent was around 1,400 per week and imho the house is big enough to comfortably accommodate two families.

Used to cycle up the steep hill and out onto Snapes Point early in the morning with the dog for fabulous views down the estuary, while the fishermen were just setting out for their day's endeavours from Batson. The dog had the time of his life and would love to go back !

Don't know if the owners are planning to rent in 2005, but I do have contact details if anybody is seriously interested.

Brian

There are two very pleasant self catering properties at East Portlemouth... one is the 5th down here, I can't find the other at the moment... http://www.kingsbridgeinfo.co.uk/sel...tallington.htm

Thanks for all the good information - really helpful.

Whiteshoes - thanks for that. Sounds lovely and certainly a consideration. May well be in touch.

Cheers

Rich, hope your plans are going OK. The South Hams is a beautiful area (I was lucky enough to grow up there!). You may find this website useful: http://www.salcombeinformation.co.uk/

Have a great holiday in May and don't forget your camera!!
