Boasting picturesque coves and a mild climate, this one-time fishing village is Devon’s most southerly seaside resort and has earned itself a reputation as a centre for sailing in its many guises. A regatta is staged here each August in the tidal Kingsbridge Estuary.

Prawle Point - the most southerly point in the county - can be reached by one of several ferries that ply their trade in Salcombe.

Just beyond the resort is the National Trust’s seven-acre gardens surrounding an Edwardian house at Overbecks. The nearby village of Hope Cove has popular beaches and clear waters.
