When Rod Stewart has visited South Devon to perform one of his thrilling concerts, he has been known to stay in Salcombe, as his wife’s photograph confirms.
He and Penny Lancaster have stayed at the Salcombe Harbour Hotel and Spa, in a room which looks out over the stunning Salcombe estuary.
Calling it ‘one of the most beautiful spots in the world’, Penny posted this picture of the superstar relaxing.
So that you too can experience all that Salcombe and The South Hams has to offer, let us suggest somewhere to stay. Here are a few holiday homes dotted around this beautiful part of the West Country.
Situated in a sheltered valley, the pretty hamlet of Goveton is a peaceful haven away from the crowds, yet just two miles from the market town of Kingsbridge with its excellent shops, good pubs/restaurants and waterfront. Rosemary Cottage (sleeping 6) is a stylish barn conversion, and has original exposed roof beams, stripped wooden floors and a beautiful contemporary finish
Fern Cottage (sleeping 4) near Loddiswell, is a picturebook detached stone cottage, nestling on the edge of woodland in the grounds of a working organic farm. The cottage is very private, has roses around the door and a pretty patio and garden. This charming holiday home has been lovingly restored, and delightfully decorated and furnished.
Lower Well Cottage (sleeping 4), located at the end of a private drive about a mile from the village of Ugborough, is a detached property of character and charm with the luxury of a shared indoor heated swimming pool. The cottage is furnished and equipped to the highest standard and adjacent to the cottage is a pretty garden with beautiful countryside views.
Mallards (sleeping 4) is at one end of a converted Malt House that sits at the head of Newton Creek in Noss Mayo, a picture postcard village at the mouth of the beautiful Yealm Estuary. The lounge opens onto a glazed balcony, which is a wonderful suntrap with stunning views of the river and surrounding hills; many of these hills are owned by the National Trust and provide some spectacular walks.
Located only 12 miles from Salcombe and 13 miles from Dartmouth, The Coach House (sleeping 6) is situated on The Colmer Estate, a unique collection of 20 holiday cottages, set in 28 acres of grounds, with leisure facilities. This detached, single storey holiday home’s light and colourful décor and furnishings make it bright and welcoming.
Little Barn (sleeping 4) is situated in a rural location, close to the pretty village of Modbury. Just one mile from the Erme Estuary and the sandy beach at Wonwell, this is a perfect destination for a family holiday. Set in three acres of grounds, which includes a swing for the children, Little Barn is in a quiet, sunny position with wonderful views of the Devon countryside.
