Seacombe Cottage, a chic, modern conversion of a detached barn, is set in a small cluster of properties that sit alongside the lane leading down to East Portlemouth. The owners take immense trouble to ensure this cottage is maintained to the highest quality. Tiled floors, oak doors, smart contemporary furniture and fittings all combine to provide exceptional comfort. The large enclosed gardens extend out to mown fields that enjoy great country views towards Dartmoor. 1.5 miles from the cottage is Salcombe, with its shops, quays, restaurants and pubs, easily reached by the East Portlemouth passenger ferry. There are glorious coastal and country paths through National Trust land and in summer the estuary becomes a boat lovers haven, mixing luxury yachts, powerboats and racing dinghies. Lazy summer days can be spent on the white sands of the beautiful estuary beaches of Mill Bay and Sunny Cove or relaxing on the sunny terraces or gardens.

Superb accommodation - we would recommend to friends and family.
We really enjoyed our stay at Seacombe Cottage. The accommodation was excellent and the facilities were of a very high standard. The children enjoyed playing with the board games and walking through the garden. We need to visit in the summer to take full advantage of the outdoors.
Seacombe cottage was the ideal holiday house for a large family. The house and grounds were light and spacious, there were several good beaches on our side of the estuary and it was an easy ferry ride over to Salcombe with its shops and restaurants. It's not easy to keep kids ranging from 8-14 happy but this property did the job! It was amazingly well equipped - they really had thought of everything! We hope to return next year.
