About this property

An Edwardian waterside hotel located in a magnificent position with gardens leading down to approximately 100 foot of Salcombe Estuary foreshore. The Sunny Cliff Hotel enjoys stunning panoramic views from all its rooms, balconies and decked sun terrace. Set in tiered gardens framed by an iconic macracarpa tree the hotel also has a private heated outdoor pool, five private moorings, a running mooring, off-road parking for 12 vehicles and a garage.

The Sunny Cliff Hotel is a splendid example of an Edwardian detached property. Built as a private residence, The Sunny Cliff’s billiard room was temporarily used as the base of the Salcombe Yacht Club during the Second World War before becoming a hotel. It still retains many of its original features blended with modern enhancements and tasteful redecoration.

However it is The Sunny Cliff’s location that attracts so many visitors year on year. It benefits from spectacular panoramic views from the mouth of the estuary, and the sea beyond, to Salcombe’s busy harbour. The sandy beaches of Mill Bay and Small’s Cove are on the opposite side of the estuary along with the beautiful rural surroundings of East Portlemouth village and beyond. It is also within easy walking distance of Salcombe’s town centre (8 mins).

The Sunny Cliff is approached through double glazed doors that open into a reception with a newly refurbished cloakroom. A dual aspect lounge with a bow window offers simply stunning views of the estuary and provides an inviting central, social area. The ground floor also hosts Puffin’s Place – a two/three bedroom apartment – also with an attractive bow window and an original balcony. The office and duty managers accommodation are also on this floor.

A duplex three-bedroom apartment, Heron’s House, can be accessed via a balcony through a separate gate on Cliff Road.

The annexe has a 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartment, Cuckoo’s Nest and Quarterdeck, which have both been modernised recently and enjoy the use of private balconies.

Stairs from reception lead up to the first floor and Smuggler’s Cove, a studio apartment with a floor to ceiling bow window and stunning views up and down the estuary. Here also is the Birds Eye View penthouse suite with an amazing balcony and 3 bedrooms. It also benefits from a separate entrance.

The lower ground floor is accessed from an internal staircase from reception, or external steps. Two newly converted and attractive studio apartments with expansive decking are at this level together with a private apartment with 3 bedrooms, elegant living room and terrace.

Steps lead down past the macracarpa tree to an outdoor heated pool set in an attractive newly paved waterside sun terrace where there is also a shower room and shared boat store.

And for boat lovers, The Sunny Cliff benefits from its own foreshore steps, five moorings and running mooring.

There is also a garage and off-road parking for 12 vehicles.

A company, The Sunny Cliff Hotel (Salcombe) Ltd was set up to purchase the Hotel in 1997. The sale will be of the Company so the stamp duty will be 0.5%. As it is a business, there are potentially several tax breaks available including Inheritance Tax and Entrepreneurs Relief on Capital Gains Tax.
