WHATEVER THE WEATHER – you’ll never be short of something to do

The South West Coast Path has recently achieved a listing in Lonely Planets’ Great Adventures book, and is the only hike in the UK to be mentioned. They describe it as “walking at its most diverse and most spectacular”.

Salcombe provides a perfect base for walkers, nature lovers and ornithologists, as there is a wide range of flora and fauna as well as interesting birdlife. Number 12 makes an ideal place to come home and pop the kettle on after a day taking in the breathtaking scenery or facing the elements!

There are so many spectacular walks to enjoy, we suggest you take a look at the websites listed on our ‘Links’ page.

In the spring the Devon hedgerows are full of wild flowers and in the autumn the changing colours of the trees seem to take on more contrast against the deepening blue of the estuary, by now nearly empty of small boats.

The many bridle ways and narrow lanes that criss-cross this part of south Devon, make cycling popular if you enjoy the hilly landscape.

However for many it’s the simple pleasures of making sandcastles, rock pooling, relaxing on the beach, painting or sitting watching the world go by which they enjoy the most.

Please go to our ‘Links’ page for further information on all these suggestions.
