The Stumbles is located on a quiet lane in the heart of Salcombe, yet only a stone’s throw from the lively Fore Street which offers a vast array of quality delicatessens, pubs, restaurants and shops. It is moments away from the bakery and the very popular Captain Flint’s restaurant.

Famous for its vibrant atmosphere, numerous water activities and outstanding coastal walks Salcombe has built a reputation as a must visit location in any season of the year. With a number of stunning beaches within walking distance (and via the passenger ferry) you could easily spend your entire holiday at the Stumbles without needing to use the car.
