Welcome to Upper Terrapins

Bedrooms |
Location: Salcombe

Upper Terrapins is a spacious apartment with incredible panoramic views looking over the Salcombe estuary, beaches and town.

Situated right in the middle of the action, yet on a quiet street, you can go from relaxing in the open plan living area to jumping on your boat within minutes.

Upper Terrapins Overview

There is nothing quite like a panoramic view over Salcombe; the countryside and creeks, the boats on their moorings or pottering out to sea, yellow sandy beaches, and the pastel coloured houses perched on the hillside. From Upper Terrapins you can see it all.

Situated in the heart of Salcombe yet along quiet Buckley Street, within minutes you can collect fresh croissants and a newspaper in the morning, or walk to the waterfront to jump on your boat.

Accessed through an archway off Church Street, Upper Terrapins has one private parking space for guests to use (note is it a little tight through the archway). Walking up the stairs into the apartment, the first floor is where you’ll find the well proportioned and beautifully styled bedrooms and bathrooms.

Two bedrooms (a twin and a kingsize) have the most wonderful views over the harbour. From the twin room, imagine having your cup of tea in bed whilst watching the water twinkle in the morning – just fantastic.

The beautiful kingsize room with built-in wardrobes has its views from the window seat over towards the beaches, up the Southpool creek and over the foreshore moorings and Salcombe Lifeboat.

These two bedrooms share a family bathroom.

The third bright and well-sized bedroom (double) has an en suite shower room.

Upstairs the open plan living space is where you’ll find the kitchen, dining area, comfortable seating and access out on to the balcony. It’s also from where you can enjoy the sensational views. You can even see the Whitestrand and Normandy pontoons to check if you boat has come in! The kitchen is well-equipped with mod-cons such as a wine fridge and Nespresso machine.

One well-behaved dog allowed at the discretion of the owners. Additional charge of £45 will be added.

No smoking allowed inside.

Our holiday stay at Upper Terrapins exceeded all our expectations, the accommodation is lovely with the balcony being the jewel in the crown. The views are stunning and it is lovely to be so close the water and central to the town. We were also grateful to the staff at FinestStays who helped us with a couple of nonstandard issues in a professional way, our star rating for the overall experience would be 5 star.
