The Wood description

Holiday home
The Wood is a huge detached house on the hill above South Sands beach in the Devon coastal town of Salcombe. The house sleeps 15 people in seven bedrooms: a family room with en suite on the top floor, two en suite doubles, a twin and a single on the first floor with bathroom, a twin on the lower ground floor with a shower room. On the entrance level is a hall and on the lower ground level is a kitchen with dining area and doors to a deck and a sitting room with open fire. Outside is over an acre of steep garden with pond, seating area and steps down to a footpath to the beach. The Wood is a fabulous house for a very special break in Devon.

Salcombe is a popular destination for walkers and families looking for a holiday by the sea and was once a major port. There are two pretty beaches within a short distance, North Sands and South Sands and further on is the National Trust property Overbeck's where you can wander through the subtropical gardens.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

We were delighted to celebrate our daughter’s 30 th birthday in the Wood, which proved to have the most stunning location (the views! ) and the house is superbly well furnished. Very good support by Pebbles too.

This was our third stay at the Wood, and sure not to be the last! With its fantastic views across South Sands the house did not disappoint ! Comfortable with plenty of room for us all to relax it was the perfect venue for my husbands 40th celebration.

We had a family reunion with 14 members in this beautiful three-level home that sleeps 17 and overlooks the Salcombe estuary--outside decks, living areas, bedrooms all have incredible views--quick walk down to a special beach. All of the house has been renovated and the interiors are first rate, including the modern bathrooms. The 4-rooms on the first floor have spectacular views and include an open, fully modernized kitchen, with island counters and counter chairs, a dining room that sat all of us comfortably, a sitting room and then a living room all with hardward floors and a great fireplace. The outside deck has a large dining table with deck and lounge chairs. The home is beautifully appointed and maintained. The property surrounding the house has different terrace levels, gardens and great landscape. The house has its own parking area and the property also includes a cottage with its own bedroom, living area and kitchenette. All of the towels, kitchen utinsils, dishes, glassware are included and there is a washer/dryer as well. Wi-fi, CD player, and TV are also included. This is a special place for a gathering. The third floor has four beds with a large bathroom and a kids game room--great place for children to stay and it becomes their pad and hideout.
