About The Bolthead

The Bolthead offers up to seven guests luxury self-catering and sits in an enviable position on the English Riviera with stunning views over the beach at South Sands, Salcombe and surrounding coastline. With three bedrooms (one with en-suite), this impressive ground floor holiday apartment is perfect for families, friends and also couples who want to explore this stunning popular part of South Devon.

Sitting on the edge of Salcombe, The Bolthead is fortunate enough to have its own parking and the glorious sandy Blue Flag South Sands beach a stone's throw away where you can sun bathe, swim, build sand castles and even launch a boat. From here you can catch a ferry during the summer months taking you into the heart of the town where you have excellent restaurants, pubs and shops to browse.

Spend your days relaxing on the beach and enjoying the milder climate the area boasts or lace up your walking boots and explore the South West Coastal Path, accessible from the apartment taking you up over the National Trust headland and cliffs with spectacular scenery along the way. Sailing is another popular pursuit in and around the Salcombe Estuary, as is windsurfing, and also diving.

Alternatively, jump in the car and explore the South Hams and surrounding area with its many attractions. Plymouth steeped in maritime history and the Torbay towns of Paignton, Brixham and Torquay are all within easy driving distance, as are Kingsbridge with its boutiques, Dartmouth, Bigbury on Sea, the golden sands of Bantham and the sheltered bay of Hope Cove.

Whether you want to simply laze by the sea, or get out and about exploring Devon, The Bolthead is an excellent choice.
