Harbour Watch Overview
As featured in The Sunday Times ‘Top 50 Holiday Homes’ and ITV’s Holiday Home Sweet Home, Harbour Watch is a prestigious holiday home located in East Portlemouth which is over the other side of the estuary from Salcombe. The epitome of style, comfort and luxury, this property is perfect for families and groups. The house is elevated above the estuary, enabling guests to take in the exquisite scenery of the beautiful calm waters, Devonshire countryside and the charming town of Salcombe.
The property boasts complete privacy – perfect for a weekend getaway or a longer stay on the coast. Secret pathways twist round the house, winding through the undergrowth and down the steps to your perfectly located beach. Imagine watching the sunset from the golden sand and listening to the waves gently lapping over the shore – all in total peace and quiet.
The huge glass window in the living room enables guests to enjoy the views from the home. All designed with comfort in mind, the Harbour Watch has a TV room, 6-bed bunk room (downstairs) with its own en suite shower/wet room, 2 double bedrooms (upstairs), a room that can be set-up as a twin or double (upstairs) and 3 additional bathrooms (upstairs) comprising of 2 en suites and a family bathroom. There is also a cloakroom off the kitchen area.
In addition, the holiday home features an epic decking area with plenty of seating for al fresco dining and two gas barbecues so that you can make the most of those warm sunny days.
Although seclusion and serenity are the name of the game at Harbour Watch, you are still a stone’s throw away from local amenities for your convenience. The holiday home can be rented on a self-catered basis; however, Salcombe Finest also provide a Salcombe Luxe package, which includes a daily maid service and complimentary concierge.
