Cable Cottage Overview

Welcome to Cable Cottage, one of Salcombe’s most sought-after holiday homes. Built at the water’s edge of North Sands, this house is a true haven for those seeking a relaxing beach retreat or a thrill-filled adventure at sea.

Upon arrival, you will be presented with a showcase of everything that makes Salcombe an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty: the expansive estuary, the wild Devonshire coastline and crystal waters washing over soft golden sands. In the 1800s, Cable Cottage was home to the termination point of the Brest to Salcombe submarine telegraph cable. Since then, the quaint beach-side cottage has undergone extensive renovation to become the luxury holiday home it is today.

At a glance, you will notice many of the original features that were incorporated during the rebuild: the arched windows, the slated roof, the wooden mullions. However, after stepping in through the front door, you will be met with the sleek, modern interiors and stylish furnishings that transform your stay into a luxurious experience.

Once inside, make the most of the large, elegant living area to kick back and relax in style. Coupled with a contemporary kitchen and comfortable dining area, this open plan space benefits from an abundance of natural light due to its large windows – not to mention those panoramic views of the coastline. Adjacent to the living area is a beautifully decorated study space for those seeking quiet reflection.

Take the stairs to discover the second floor of Cable Cottage and be met by 4 luxurious bedrooms, each equipped with its own en-suite bathroom. These bedrooms have been designed with comfort in mind, so no matter which you choose, you can be sure to get a great nights sleep after an exciting beach adventure.

Not only is Cable Cottage ideal due to its waterfront position, but its proximity to the town centre. A short walk will take you to Fore Street; where independent retailers, traditional pubs and restaurants showcase the community spirit of Salcombe.

Make the most of the summer weather and dine al fresco on your private sun terrace, sampling a taste of the local produce.  The private rear garden is well maintained, blooming with flowers and bursting with beauty. There is also ample private off-road parking for multiple guests.

No pets allowed. Smoking not allowed inside. Children under 8 by permission only.
