If you want to enjoy a winter getaway it can be tempting to opt for a quick foreign holiday to grab some sunshine. But why put yourself through the hassle of airport queues and cramped flights when you can enjoy true beauty right on your doorstep. Sure you won’t be able to work on your tan, but here are 5 things about a Salcombe retreat which will make you want to visit time and again.
The Beauty Of Salcombe
If you truly want to experience the beauty of the South Devon region then it doesn’t get any better than on a Salcombe retreat. There are several beaches dotted around Salcombe, which are wonderful for a morning stroll with the bracing coastal breeze revitalising your senses. If you fancy something a little more challenging then lace up your walking boots and head off to the South West Coastal Path. Explore the rugged coastline and its many hidden coves and inlets.
Salcombe has a thriving food industry. Many of the local farms have some of the finest produce, from free range meats to organically grown vegetables and award-winning wines. That’s why the highlight of any Salcombe retreat is a trip to one of the fine local restaurants. You can find traditional pubs like the Victoria Inn to contemporary bistros like Dick And Wills. What unites them all is the delectable dishes on offer.
A Haven Of Relaxation
One of the best aspects of a Salcombe retreat is the sheer peace and quiet, especially if you visit outside the peak summer months. In the off-season the town retains all its charm but life proceeds at a more leisurely speed. To really ease into the Devon pace of life be sure to book in for a relaxing massage or spa treatment at the Salcombe Harbour Hotel Spa and then lounge around the pool and sauna for the day.
For a small town tucked away on the Devon coast Salcombe has a surprisingly diverse range of shops. Be sure to make time to explore them on your Salcombe retreat. From well-known brands like Fat Face to unique Salcombe boutiques like Amelia’s Attic, clothes shoppers will find plenty to indulge in. Be sure to make a day of it and also take in the art galleries and other independent shops.
Holidays are a time to pamper yourself and get away from the grind of daily life. Nothing helps get you in the holiday mood better than luxurious accommodation. Salcombe is home to many beautiful holiday properties for you to relax in. From seafront apartment with sweeping views of the estuary, to secluded cottages tucked away in their own grounds, you’ll find a place to suit you on your Salcombe retreat.
