A beautifully styled duplex apartment set over two floors, this fab holiday home is perfect for families or groups of friends.

Ferry Watch Overview

Oh what a glorious position – right in the heart of Salcombe but with a peaceful outside area for al fresco dining on balmy days, or relaxing in the sunshine with a good book. With views across the Salcombe estuary from each floor, Ferry Watch is aptly named as you sit and watch the ferry busily to and fro.

A beautifully styled duplex apartment situated over two floors, this is a fab holiday home for families or groups of friends. And getting to the golden sandy beaches on the other side couldn’t be easier – simply cross the road and hop onto the ferry. Or if you need to quench your thirst, the waterfront Ferry Inn is right on your doorstep.

Walking up the steps to the house from street level, you will see the terraces a the back of Ferry Watch where there is an outdoor dining area, comfortable seating corner and a hanging egg seat (don’t all fight at once). A charcoal BBQ is on hand for sizzling sausages after a day on the beach.

Entering the house into the hallway, turn right into the open plan kitchen and dining area. There is a very useful utility area off the well-equipped kitchen with downstairs loo and laundry facilities.

Up two steps from the dining area is a beautiful sitting room with heavenly sofas to crash out on. On this level is also a king size bedroom with en suite shower room.

From the hallway and up the staircase is the rest of the sleeping accommodation. A well-sized twin room is first on your left, followed by a king size bedroom; both have wonderful estuary views. At the furthest end is a bedroom with three single beds; a sure fire hit with children.

1 x well behaved pooch is very welcome at an additional charge

We had a very happy stay in Ferry Watch. It is a great place for a relaxed holiday with the family. The living room is large enough to absorb the numbers staying and the kitchen is well equipped with china, glasses and cutlery. Also, the 2 fridges are so useful for the numbers the house can take. The outdoor space is brilliant. Full sun until mid afternoon, yet a tree for shade if wanted. Lovely views from the bedroom windows, and very close to the ferry which is a real bonus with all the clutter one takes to the beach. I would definitely stay at Ferry Watch again.

Awesome place right in the middle of Salcombe. Nice views from the front bedrooms and really tastefully decorated and furnished. Couldn’t be better located and Finest Stays were great at contact and very amenable to flexi check ins when we had issues with train strikes! Thanks for a really great weekend!

Absolutely perfect holiday home. Town centre location, everything at your door. The house was beautiful and very clean. The lounge is big with plenty of seating and the kitchen is open and light, great for family gatherings. We had a fantastic trip. We are so sad we couldn’t stay longer. I can highly recommend The Ferry watch if you’re planning on staying in Salcombe. Lovely friendly team also.
