Sep 5, 2014 | Property Focus, Salcombe

Our surroundings inspire the way we treat ourselves. Whilst at home in an environment we associate with routine and work, we might be inclined to simply carry out day-to-day chores. In these surroundings, we may forget the importance of indulging ourselves from time to time. We all need time to recharge regularly to prevent stress or over-tiredness, and often, just staying at home isn’t enough. To truly unwind, you need to really treat yourself.

Allow yourself to become immersed in a world of luxury with a holiday in Salcombe.

Top 5 Luxurious Experiences in Salcombe

It only takes one trip to Salcombe to understand why it has become one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, and very often, visitors find it hard to leave. A place unlike any other, the experiences Salcombe has to offer are endless. We’ve managed (with great difficulty!) to choose our top 5 luxurious experiences in Salcombe:

Sample the Local Seafood Al Fresco

This charming seafront town is famous for two things: the spectacular selection of beaches and the delectable Salcombe seafood. The freshly caught crab that melts in the mouth, exquisite oysters and sumptuous scallops are all locally sourced and can be cooked up into the most delicious meals you can imagine. Whether you decide to sample these culinary delights in a restaurant such as the well-renowned Winking Prawn, on the golden sands of Sunny Cove or in the outdoor dining area of a luxury Salcombe holiday rental, you will not be disappointed by these wonderful dishes. This really is a cuisine worth tasting!

Embark on a Coastal Walk

As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it would be a shame to miss out on the stunning scenery that the Salcombe coast has to offer. Getting out into the open and experiencing the surrounding environment is often a great way to improve your mood. Whether you’re an early riser or a daytime stroller, Salcombe has a multitude of trails and tracks for an adventure you’ll never forget. For a sunny walk with the family, take a short stroll across North Sands. For a once in a lifetime experience, hike from Bolt Head to the Salcombe estuary with your partner, your friends or even your dog. These walks are the perfect way to take in the beautiful views of the glistening Salcombe sea and see wildlife whilst getting the gentle exercise and fresh air you need to feel recharged.

Take a Relaxing Ferry Trip

When visiting Salcombe, it’s impossible not to spend a large part of your holiday gazing in awe over the rolling waves on the sift golden sands. However, as well as admiring it from the shore, we recommend experiencing the Salcombe sea by boat. Take a ferry trip to East Portlemouth or other surrounding shores to secret beaches, feeling at one with the sea as you are led across the shimmering emerald waves.

Stimulate Your Senses in the Seas

Sometimes, relaxation and rejuvenation isn’t just about chilling out. Regular exercise not only makes healthier in the long term, but happier. For many of us, the prospect of going to the gym each day can be daunting, but in Salcombe, there is a plethora of ways to get your heart beating in the great outdoors. Try out one of Salcombe’s popular water sports activities such as wakeboarding, surfing or water-skiing and feel the rush of the waves and the crisp sea air revive your soul and leave you gasping for more.

Have Some ‘Me-Time’in a Salcombe Spa

Of course, relaxation often means completely pampering yourself, and there is no better way of doing so than by visiting a Salcombe spa. One of the most sumptuous spas in the area is the Harbour Hotel. Here, you can enjoy an indulgent pebble room, warming sauna, Jacuzzi, indoor swimming pool, fitness suite and even take a specialist massage in one of the hotel’s five spa treatment rooms. However, if you feel like keeping this luxury all to yourself (and who would blame you?) our premium Salcombe properties offer unrivalled indulgence from within. ForeDecks, one of our most popular holiday homes, boasts its very own sublime sauna and outdoor hot tub overlooking the Salcombe estuary, where you can melt into the surroundings and feel completely at peace.

Salcombe is abundant in luxurious experiences that you will remember for the rest of your life. This year, don’t just stay at home: it’s time to treat yourself to a well-earned holiday to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to unwind, recharge and relax.
