About this property

  • Sailmakers Cottage was originally part of a former boat store and many of the original features including exposed stonework and timbers are still evident. The front door opens into a welcoming living room with a large timber beam fire surround housing an electric wood effect stove on a stone hearth. There is a large hatch overlooking the living room from the kitchen which allows the kitchen to also enjoy the wonderful outlook. The kitchen is fitted with a four ring hob and oven, plate rack, wine rack and a good range of units. Also on the ground floor is a utility / cloakroom with WC. The first floor offers 3 bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a family bathroom and stairs continue to rise to the second floor which comprises the master bedroom and further en suite shower room. In total, the property can sleep up to 7 people.

    To the front of the cottage is a pretty courtyard garden with low level cottage garden railings allowing superb views of the water. It is easy to maintain and is a delightful sitting out area. In addition is a private running mooring nearby at Custom House Quay, which is shared with two neighbouring cottages (subject to Harbour Authority regulations).

You could literally roll out of bed and into your boat! Stunning spot and it never fails to impress me whatever the season.

Local information

  • Salcombe is one of the most sought after addresses on Devon's south coast and for good reason; the town is situated on the Salcombe Estuary, flanked by the glorious rolling countryside of the South Hams and is renowned for its micro climate. Salcombe offers two sandy beaches of its own, North Sands and South Sands and a short boat trip across the water to East Portlemouth provides access to the equally gorgeous sandy beach at Mill Bay. Sailmakers Cottage is situated in the heart of this bustling waterside town which offers an eclectic and gorgeous mix of shops, restaurants and pubs. The property is a short walk to the ferry where you can access the beaches. Communications are excellent with access to the M5 motorway at Exeter, via the A38 Devon Expressway being about 15 miles.
