3BR Cottage Vacation Rental in Salcombe

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Jul 16, 2020

A beautiful, secluded holiday home for either 6 or 8 in the centre of Salcombe

Located in: Salcombe »
Perfectly situated in one of the most beautiful seaside towns in Devon, Friday Cottage is a historic and characterful property built in the 1700's. Quietly tucked away, right in the centre of Salcombe and in a pedestrian alley just off picturesque Fore Street, the cottage is a few steps from the estuary & Salcombe's array of boutique shops, pubs & galleries.

Friday Cottage is a fully refurbished, stone-built fisherman's cottage and is available to rent for just a limited number of weeks each year. It is our second home and has been tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard. It is centrally-heated and comfortable and has a wood burning stove for winter stays.

The cottage sleeps 6 and has two bathrooms. A stable door leads directly from the covered porch into the spacious modern kitchen/diner. The kitchen is well planned and presented and features grey granite worktops, an integrated dishwasher, electric hob & oven and a generous fridge/freezer. Emma Bridgewater crockery is the order of the day and there is numerous practical equipment - thermos flasks, cool bags and even a beach BBQ to help you make the most of the outdoors. The adjacent dining area has a generous oak table & chairs and french doors lead to the rear garden and lower terrace where a Bridgman table and matching garden chair-set make for comfortable dining outdoors.

From the dining area, one doorway leads to a compact mosaic-tiled shower room & downstairs cloakroom while the passageway beneath the stairs leads to the elegant living room with its two beautiful sofas, a cosy wood-burning stove, large flat screen TV, games cupboard and characterful tongue and grooved wall panelling. Practical hard flooring is laid in the kitchen to allow for welly boots and sandy feet but in the rest of the cottage there is natural Sisal carpeting by Alternative Flooring, a rug by Roger Oates and soft furnishings by designer Sarah Hardaker.

Narrow stairs lead up to the compact upper floor with a well-proportioned family bathroom (with shower, corner bath and WC) . The three compact but light-filled bedrooms all benefit from lovely views over the pretty tree-filled garden to the rear, or over gardens towards the old stone church at the front. All feature curtains with blackout linings for lazy mornings.

PLEASE BRING BEACH TOWELS. You can opt to bring your own bedlinen and bath towels or for £15 per head we can supply luxury cotton bedlinen by Lexington, 1 bath towel and flannel per person , 2 bath mats and 2 tea towels.

The main bedroom features a brand new VI Spring 5ft 6"+king bed, fitted cupboards a vintage painted table and a hand basin. Next to this is a twin room with two comfortable 3ft beds, a fitted cupboard, an antique bedside table and a painted chest of drawers in the characterful bay window. The third twin bedroom benefits from two new twin 3ft beds, a fitted wardrobe and a pretty Lloyd loom arm chair.

A cupboard on the landing houses the combi- boiler (for constant hot water supply), an integrated washing machine/drier for emergency use and a drying rack, iron & ironing board.

Outside there is a lovely walled garden with two sunny terraces. (The third upper terrace is for the use of the new Lookout see below).

The famous harbour and estuary, popular with sailors and other water sports enthusiasts, is within 2 minute’s walk of the cottage, whilst the magnificent beaches of East Portlemouth and Mill Bay can be reached via a small passenger ferry that runs from the quay throughout the year.

We operate a no smoking policy and we are sorry that because of a family member being very allergic to dogs, PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED.

PLEASE NOTE Very small children will need supervision, as the garden has steep steps, and as a family home the cottage is unsuitable for groups of unaccompanied teenagers.

Parking is available at nearby car parks and you can use Ringgo to pay as you go.

NEW & RENTED SEPARATELY you may opt to book our luxurious new stone-clad cabin for 2 - The Lookout, in conjunction with (or separately from) the cottage. PLEASE NOTE that between May 1st and August 31st the Lookout is ONLY rented jointly with the cottage as with more time spent outdoors and the properties being in the same garden and relatively close together, we want to respect people’s privacy. Between Sep 1st and April 30th the two properties can be rented separately.

The Lookout has been built inside the walled garden of the cottage and has a private terrace. The Lookout features a double bedroom, reception room & a separate shower room. Rented together with the cottage it is ideal for extended families and means 8 people can be accommodated. The Lookout benefits from sea views, a separate terrace, and it's own garden entrance.
