The Fortescue Inn
Book Online / Location

Off the beaten track we are nestled away from prevailing wind. We have 3 log fires. Salcombe was once a major port for the fruit trade and over the years has found fame as a safe haven for family holidays and visiting yachtsmen. It is situated at the southern end of the Salcombe Estuary; the estuary is in fact a ria which is a landlocked salt water inlet with beautiful safe sandy beaches. The whole area is a Marine Site of Special Scientific Interest a Marine Local Nature Reserve and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The estuary is bordered by magnificent cliffs which form part of the South West Coast Path well loved by walkers throughout the year. The South West Coast Path has been mentioned recently in the Great Adventures book published by the Lonely Planet as one of the world’s most awe inspiring hikes. Described as “walking at its most diverse and most spectacular” the South West Coast Path is the only hike in the UK to make it into the highly respected guide book. We have two pretty beaches North Sands beach and South Sands beach and beyond on the hillside is “Overbecks” National Trust property. The house is a small interesting museum and because of the micro climate (we have warm summers and mild winters)The museum house tea room and gardens are generally open from early February to 1st November each year Looking from Salcombe over the water is the village of East Portlemouth with its lovely beaches. There is a ferry from town which runs regularly to the other side and if you are adventurous you can find many smaller beaches by joining the South West Coast Path and dipping down from the path on to the sands. Not far from East Portlemouth inland is the pretty village of East Prawle. Nearby is the hamlet of South Pool with its thatched cottages. Further along the coast is the Start Point Lighthouse which is open to the public as is the National Coastwatch Institution Look Out at Prawle Point both well worth a visit.
