Rest Harrow has stunning balcony views, very comfortable holiday accommodation, a superb split level garden area and provides roomy attractive accommodation in the middle of Salcombe town. A five minute walk down the hill brings you to the water’s edge of this beautiful holiday destination, a treat for all ages where you can learn to sail, hire a dinghy to explore the many creeks and beaches around the estuary, scuba dive, canoe or kayak, enjoy power boating, surfing, fishing and horse riding, to name but a few. For a more leisurely holiday, take a scenic boat trip, walk the coastal paths or enjoy lazing on one of the many beautiful beaches. For shopaholics Salcombe is great, with a selection of varied, unique and high quality shops, cafes and restaurants to keep any discerning shopper happy for hours, returning to Rest Harrow to enjoy the comfort of this delightful home with its fine views across the estuary.

Seating a bit low for taller people. Beds comfortable. Lovely view. Nice welcome with biscuits and drink provisions.

September 2018

We had an absolutely amazing time and would recommend both Toad Hall Cottages and Rest Harrow to anyone. The view from the balcony was stunning and the house had everything we could have possibly needed. So comfortable, spacious and clean. Thank you for making our trip to Devon one to remember.

July 2018

Nice house and had a great week

June 2018

Great for large family with lots of space and really well equipped kitchen but it was the view that clinched it absolutely stunning!!!

June 2018

Great property with fantastic views. Weather was good. Had a fantastic week.

April 2018

In February, a friend and I decided to escape our busy lives in London for a weekend of R&R in Devon. We chose to go to Salcombe, as never been there before, and we stayed at the beautiful Rest-Harrow home for a short break. Best decision we’ve made!! The view from our balcony was truly breath-taking! Location was great as the house was situated on a quiet road, yet close to all the shops and restaurants/cafes… We arrived on Friday night, so on the Saturday morning we enjoyed a leisurely walk on the coastal path, followed by a delicious lunch at ‘The Winking Prawn’ restaurant nearby. Our visit was so relaxing and we could not have picked a better holiday home; it had everything we needed, was cosy, clean, spacious, peaceful, and had the most comfy beds! We will definitely come back again.

September 2017

July 2017

Lovely place really enjoyed our holiday

July 2017

The stay was lovely with of course fabulous weather. We'd book Rest Harrow again - mainly for the bedroom space and the bathrooms. Great. Thank you.

April 2017

Views are excellent, had a great week here. Would stay again if going to salcombe.

October 2016

This was our third time staying at Rest Harrow and it was as good as ever. Every time we go there are small improvements which is great to see. The property has wonderful views from the top floor sitting room and dining room which just encourage you to sit (or stand) and idly watch the world go by. What's even better is trying to spot the house when walking on the hills on the opposite side of the creek... The house itself is very comfortable - large chairs and sofas in the lounge to chill out on and a separate dining room and breakfast table in the kitchen. The four bedrooms are all downstairs. We were only 2 adults and 2 children so had loads of space which was great. The bit that makes the house special is obviously its location on the hill side of Salcombe and the views in to the village and beyond. It's only a short walk to the village (longer on the way back as it is all uphill) but you have everything you need close by. The bottom line is that if you want a weekend away you can do a lot worse than stay at Rest Harrow. It's genuinely got a "home from home" feel - nothing ostentatious, just a place that you are comfortable in immediately and that has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. Go on...treat yourself and your family!

August 2016

Will recommend Toad Hall and rest Harrow to others

November 2015

Really had a fantastic holiday

October 2015

Rest Harrow was a fantastic place to stay - thank you Jill. It is very spacious, comfortable, clean and, being well equipped, has all that one needs. It also has a beautiful view over Salcombe and the estuary, and is in easy walking distance of the shops and stores in Salcombe. Rest Harrow is highly recommended!

August 2014

We have stayed at Rest Harrow on our family holiday to Salcombe for the last five years now and we keep going back because we always have a great time. It is an ideal house for a big family/ family and friends with a large kitchen and enclosed garden spaces if you have a dog or young children as we do. Its in a good location, the hills to the town are steep but that's why the house has such beautiful views!

October 2013

We enjoyed our stay very much and recommended Toad Hall Cottages already to our family.

September 2013
