The beautiful estuary town of Salcombe is located in the heart of the South Devon region known as the South Hams, which is known for having an uncommonly temperate climate, verdant unspoilt countryside, hidden combs and a spectacular coastline. Arguable one of the most sought after waterfront locations in the UK, Salcombe is the perfect setting for this beautiful home. Once a thriving fishing village, Salcombe still retains much of its original charm and character. The property sits within the short distance of the town, with its many restaurants, local pubs and boutique shops. More extensive shopping and amenities are available in Kingsbridge. The Salcombe Estuary has numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it an excellent base for dingy sailing, water sports, boating and long walks along the beautiful coastline. Salcombe is also a famous yachting centre and provides a perfect cruising base from which to explore France, The Channel Islands and the beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country. The A38 Devon Expressway is about 15 miles to the north, providing dual carriageway access to the M5 motorway at Exeter. There are good Intercity rail services from Totnes to London Paddington and a growing number of UK and international flights from Exeter airport. Brittany ferries operate services to France, Spain and the Channel Islands from their terminal at Plymouth.
On entering Salcombe from Kingsbridge turn left into Onslow Road. Follow this road all the way down the hill and at the bottom turn right into Fore Street. Proceed out of the town passing the Salcombe Harbour Hotel on the left and Hillcott will be found on the left hand side on entering Bennett Road shortly after the junction with Cliff Road.
