A Wonderful Fish Dish in the Sunshine

We called in to the Millbrook for lunch on the last day of our stay at Garden Cottage and regretted that we hadn't tried it sooner. We sat in the small outside seating area and ordered the fish of the day which in this case was plaice. It was light, beautifully cooked and absolutely exquisite. The best fish dish that I can remember. It is quite expensive and doesn't do traditional 'fish and chips' but if you want excellently prepared food in a small and friendly environment, make your way to the Millbrook.

Nearest beach

East Portlemouth Beaches (¾ mile)

Comprised of Fishermans Cove, Smalls Cove and Mill Bay, East Portlemouth's beaches offer lots of choice. Found in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the beaches are a 40 minute drive from Salcombe and often tend to be quiet and uncrowded. With clear waters lapping a gently sloping shore, it will be hard to resist a summer dip. Great for families and visitors of all ages, East Portlemouth Beaches provide a welcome retreat from the rhythm of everyday life.

Great place to sit and watch the coming and goings of the boats and ferries. It catches the evening sun so a lovely end to the day if the tides permit

Mill Bay

Lovely safe beach with best views of Salcombe! Constant stream running down one side- generations of children have dammed this stream- we often meet Granny and Grandpas with their grandchildren- and they remember doing the same with their grandparents!! Can beach dinghies and sailing boats or anchor RIB's offshore. NT carpark (with loo's) best visited before 10am to get a space or parking further back on road side. Best activity after stream damming is strolling northwards along the foreshore in the surf from Mill Bay up to the Venus cafe at East Portlemouth beach for an ice cream or cake and tea and then ambling back- or catching the foot passenger ferry over to Salcombe to peer in the trendy shops.

Nearest walk

Kingsbridge Town Trail (4 miles)

A gentle one mile stroll around the town with a trail map available on the Web site giving lots of interesting facts about the town including the story of the Curious Clock!

Nearest town

Salcombe (1 mile)

Long the favoured destination for yachties, Salcombe is in an exquisite location surrounded by sheltered water and a string of tiny, sandy bays. There is a distinctly upmarket feel to the town itself; boutique shops and chic cafes and restaurants abound throughout Salcombe’s quaint streets. Activities revolve around the wind and waves; sailing is the number one sport here and there is plenty of opportunity for lessons for the beginner or boat hire for the more experienced. For much of the year (March to October) you can also leave the car behind and use the South Sands Ferry.

Salcombe

Salcombe is located in the most southerly part of Devon.
Because of the narrow streets and the priority given to pedestrians, a park and ride scheme operates during the summer from the outskirts of Salcombe. Plently of shops, galleries and cafes/restaurants for relaxing with a cuppa. Sit by the marina to end off a perfect day. Visit Overbeck's a National Trust Gardens, and enjoy the views over the Salcombe Estuary from the house and garden. There are 2 lovely beaches in Salcombe, South Sands & North Sands.

Also nearby

Bantham (6 ¾ miles)

Bantham Beach is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has numerous awards tucked under its sandy belt. Overlooking Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can take the famous sea tractor and head to the island or sit and enjoy the views from the shore. A great surfing beach, the huge swathes of sand and sea allow plenty of space for everyone. Well-provisioned and life guarded in the summer, Bantham is a fantastic family-friendly beach.

Great family fun beach

Lovely beach with little coves to hide away in, rock pools and lovely clean sandcastle sand; wide enough for kite buggies, best surfing beach on the south coast along with Bigbury on Sea beach opposite. Burgh Island out to sea with its restored evocative 1930's hotel clinging to the edge was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Island as well as a number of Agatha Christie novels! Dogs allowed on the beach Oct- April and then along the far right hand side (west) during the remainder of the year. Beach balls and skimboards etc plus coffees and teas available from the post office cafe back in the village- great estuary view while sipping away on the deck out back. Lunch or supper in the Sloop pub- best to pre book in season

Winking Prawn Beach Cafe & BBQ (1 ¼ miles)

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and BBQ's in summer! The menu is created using locally sourced produce where ever possible, with crab from Salcombe and fish fresh from local boats.

My wife and I enjoyed lunch at the Winking Prawn. Excellent location facing North Sands beach. Very varied menu for all tastes. First class food. Idyllic ambiance. Will definitely revisit.

Overbeck's (1 ¼ miles)

Miss Stewart September 2012

Interesting cliff side garden with lots of small interesting areas. Worth reading/using the printed guides available in the conservatory to get the most from the garden. Tea room good NT standard and if you use the ferry to get there ( bit of a slog up the hill) rather than drive you get money off in the tea room. House interesting but not many rooms open as it is also a Youth Hostel.

Bigbury on Sea Beach (7 ¼ miles)

Sit on the sand, go for a paddle or walk across to Burgh Island at low tide. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bigbury on Sea Beach offers plenty of choice for everyone. If you don't want to bring your own, sports equipment hire is available. There are also lifeguards on patrol in the summer, an added comfort for families with children.

Help for Disabled

The Venus Cafe, just below the car park at Bigbury-on-Sea, has a beach wheelchair that can be borrowed free of charge. We were able to wheel my mother over to Burgh Island.
The slopes going down to the beach are quite steep. It's not so bad going down, but you need to be quite strong to push the wheelchair back up!

Kingsbridge

Set on a steep hill with a small harbour at the bottom, where a weekly market is held, Kingsbridge has lots of lovely shops to wander in and out of- often owned by generations of the same family- something we see too little of these days. A few good deli's, greengrocers, and butchers shops lend it an old fashioned air - reminds me of towns from 30 years ago - and there are plenty of chic kitchen and furnishings/interiors shops and cafes to entice as well as a popular farmers market once a month . Great 25m swimming pool and gym/squash facilities at the leisure centre, the Reel Cinema, which is small but perfectly formed, a bowling green and tennis courts, and trips down the estuary on "Rivermaid" means this is a place with lots on offer!! Wish I could live there!!
